“Based on many years of experience we can recommend the Printronix printers as robust and highly efficient machines. The printers are efficient, reliable and easy to maintain. With Wien Computer as an outstanding partner, we are guaranteed a long working life of our Printronix printers and investment protection for the company since they can quickly be adapted on-site at any time to meet new requirements.”
– Alexander Scharnweber IS Systems Administrator EMEA
For Hellmann, printers are an integral element of its IT and are subject to continuous development. Upgrading printers that are more than 10 years old is too expensive so these printers need to be replaced by new hardware. In Osnabrück, the successor to the Printronix P5000, the P7000, already is in use. In addition to faster throughput, this model has an ink ribbon with an extremely long life – up to 90 million characters. This means that the ribbon doesn’t have to be replaced as often, saving the company additional time and money.
Hellmann partnered with Printronix in cooperation with Wien Computer Expert, the contractual partner. The hardware was delivered and the maintenance contracts were concluded in close collaboration with the Personal Computer Organization (PCO), a 100% Hellmann subsidiary. The PCO’s experience with maintenance contracts through Wien Computer Expert for Printronix printers was extremely positive.
Hellmann currently is using 69 line matrix printers and 9 thermal bar code printers from Printronix. Following its extremely positive experience with the line matrix printers, the IT managers in the Hellmann IS systems division decided to test the suitability of Printronix thermal bar code printers for use within Hellmann. Impressed by the printers’ performance, Hellmann Worldwide Logistics also successfully uses Printronix T5000r and T4M thermal bar code printers.
