Newcastle Systems Launches NEW On-Line ROI Calculator

Newcastle Systems’ NB Series Mobile Powered Workstations are designed to hold and power a variety of equipment that includes computers, industrial printers, barcode scanners and more for about 8 – 12 hours at a time. This provides a fully mobile workstation that allows operators to perform their tasks wirelessly in a facility, warehouse or distribution center. Typical applications for NB Series Workstation include inventory management, mobile on-demand label printing, shipping & receiving, and cross docking.

Newcastle Systems is pleased to introduce its new on-line ROI calculator to calculate potential savings when you eliminate unnecessary walking to and from a static computer, high-volume printer or other electronic equipment used in your work process. You can adjust the pre-filled values to better reflect those of your company and quickly calculate your savings. By eliminating just 8 minutes of walking time to a static computer or printer per hour, you can save an estimated $7,000 per year. Implement 10 mobile stations throughout your facility and your savings increases to $70,000 per year.

When you integrate a mobile powered cart with your computer, printer or other powered equipment, the increased productivity is immediately apparent. In addition to eliminating footsteps, some benefits include:

  • Reduction of costly interruptions (e.g. chatting with co-workers) since workstation stays with the operator at all times
  • Improved accuracy of picked and shipped items; since workstation stays with the operator this can alleviate improper labeling, inaccurate inventory counts & more.
  • Continual access to "real-time" information
