Ice Cream refreshment with DASCOM GB

DASCOM GB, developer, manufacturer and provider of enterprise printing solutions, has announced that Vanputer has upgraded its specialised van sales computer systems to include the Tally MIP480 mobile printer. Using the new printer, Vanputer is helping its customers streamline their printing operations and increase their operational efficiency.

Vanputer specialises in software for van sales that can be tailored to suit an individual client’s selling needs. Included in the package is the MIP480 which has been primarily designed for delivery note printing in commercial vans and trucks; it combines speed, operational flexibility and rugged reliability to offer exceptional printing, ideally suited for route delivery and mobile applications.

Prior to upgrading, Vanputer used mobile printers from TallyGenicom. Said Vanputer’s Managing Director, Howard Larne, “We have always used A4 dot matrix printers as part of our sales systems. We had previously known and worked with TallyGenicom, so it made good business and financial sense to migrate to DASCOM GB when the time came.”

Since combining the new printer with its specialised sales system, Vanputer’s clients, such as Crolla Ice Cream Company (Crolla’s), are benefitting from improved printing capabilities and delivery runs where its drivers can produce instant documentation such as invoices and receipts. Prior to implementing a computerised system, Crolla’s relied on hand written delivery notes and invoicing, proving both time-consuming and costly. In order to maximise its potential and keep up with business growth, the company invested in a Vanputer system and has since maintained a profitable working relationship spanning 20 years.

“Each of our vans is now fitted with a Vanputer system and it has saved us both time and money,” said Crolla’s Managing Director, Peter Crolla. “Our delivery drivers can now download the necessary information and use the wireless connection between the handheld device and mobile printer to produce instant reports and invoices whilst out on rounds. It also means we can sell stock directly from the lorry and therefore boost our revenues from another angle. We couldn’t imagine going back to a manual system now.”

DASCOM GB’s Managing Director, Robin Edwardes commented, “Working with organisations such as Vanputer and Crolla’s highlights the robust and reliable nature of our printers. For any organisation involved in sales and deliveries, critical documents are of great importance and must be clear and crisp; the MIP480 is ideally placed for such a task. We’re delighted to be working with both of these companies and look forward to long and profitable relationships.”
