Retail Packaging Bags Used to Improve Operation

Bagging System Implemented to Fill Poly Bags

A retail mail fulfillment company was experiencing issues with its packaging process. Each time a new change or method was implemented to better the process, new dilemmas arose. Initially, the company tried a cold seal bagging system. The cold seal bagging system was slow, expensive, and left customers complaining about the unpleasant odors of the sealant remnants on products.  Suffering from capacity problems, customer grievances, and low productivity, the mail fulfillment company was at a loss for solutions to their predicament.

Problem

Suffering from capacity problems, customer grievances, and low productivity, the mail fulfillment company was at a loss for solutions to their predicament.

  • Slow and inefficient cold seal bagging system
  • Poor time management
  • Customer Dissatisfaction
  • Low Productivity

Solution

Following their purchase of the Sharp MAX™ 20-inch bagging system, the mail fulfillment company experienced greater  performance with:

  • Ease of operation
  • Improved use of time
  • Material cost savings
  • Customer satisfaction
  • Less labor necessary

Outcome

After contacting IPS Packaging, the mail fulfillment company was confident that they were on their way to discovering the key solution to their issues.  IPS Packaging suggested that the company use a complete machine-and-bag system that would maximize efficiency, productivity, and time. The recommended Sharp MAX™ 20-inch bagger pre-prints company information, allowing for less time and less steps in the bagging process.  The Sharp MAX™ 20-inch bagger comes with non-proprietary parts and standard print drivers, which permits connection with almost any other system.

Thanks to the mail fulfillment company purchasing the Sharp MAX™ 20-inch bagger and increasing production efficiency, the company no longer needs as many work stations as they previously had. They found that the Sharp MAX™ 20-inch bagger provided them with reliability, ease of operation, labor savings, material cost savings, and less wasted time. While they previously maintained 24 or 25 workstations, they now maintain only 13.  The mail fulfillment company achieved better, faster results at about 2/3 the cost of their previous systems.
