StayLinked Brings Terminal Emulation to Avery Dennison

Here at StayLinked, we've been adding support for many new hardware manufacturers over the past year, and we're now proud to announce that we've added Avery Dennison to that growing list. Supporting Avery Dennison's Pathfinder 6057 (and, soon, the Pathfinder 6140), StayLinked software now gives you the capability to run modernized Terminal Emulation applications on these one piece price management tools.

Empowering Your Avery Dennison Devices with StayLinked

The Avery Dennison Pathfinder 6057 printer with StayLinked SmartTE allows retailers to create applications that quickly and accurately price and mark down items while reducing labor costs. Compared to traditional “red pen” manual marking methods, the Avery Dennison solution offers reduced labor costs through increased speed and productivity. In internal tests, it performed over 50% faster than traditional “red pen” manual marking methods. The data collection, real time communication and storage ability of the Pathfinder 6057 eliminate error-prone manual data-matching processes and improves accuracy.

As with StayLinked, Avery Dennison devices training needs are minimal. Sales associates can perform labeling tasks in less time and on the sales floor, ensuring associates are constantly available to customers. Visual consistency of pricing labels protects and further elevates brand while minimizing fraud and shrinkage.

With SmartTE, Avery Dennison now offers customers modernized Terminal Emulation applications that easily turn legacy 'green screen' applications into robust graphically-rich modernized applications. And with StayLinked iQ customers can gain visibility into their production environment with integrated business intelligence and analytics enabling customers to make crucial business decisions.

SmartTE and Avery Dennison: A Solution That Works Out-of-the Box!

With StayLinked SmartTE and Avery Dennison, you can apply the touchscreen capabilities to your warehouse applications right out of the box. Those who do have a combination of hardware types know how hard it can be to choose a software solution that can work seamlessly across these devices.

You may have seen some of the vendor-specific solutions that claim to modernize your backend application on your device with ease. But if you talk to anyone who has actually tried these software approaches, you’ll often hear the same refrain: It simply doesn’t work. At StayLinked, the folks we’ve talked to who are actively looking for an alternative are amazed at not only how well SmartTE works, but how easy it is to use. 

StayLinked Can Work on Any Avery Dennison OS

At StayLinked, we’ve worked hard to make sure that your legacy Terminal Emulation apps can take advantage of what Avery Dennison devices have to offer, even without a hardware keyboard. That means that no matter what new hardware you decide to use, StayLinked SmartTE just works.

Just as importantly, StayLinked works on every major operating system: Android, iOS, Windows 10 and even Java. So when you decide which printer and which OS to use in your warehouse, StayLinked is committed to making sure that your apps not only work better, but that you can focus on making tough hardware decisions without having to worry about which software to run. Because in the supply chain, as we all know, each warehouse is different.

Single-Server Architecture works seamlessly with Avery Dennison

StayLinked's fully-integrated architecture uses a single server to handle your business processes: TE application clients, session persistence, modernized screen design, fair licensing, and business intelligence. 

Everything you need for TE in your warehouse can be done with one StayLinked server. That means that installation is easy (less than 10 minutes) and maintenance is minimal. With StayLinked, upkeep is easy and inexpensive, and because it's tightly-integrated, administration is simple.

Other approaches, however, require multiple servers to accomplish a lot less than what the StayLinked solution offers. This means more headaches during the installation process and ongoing support for troubleshooting multiple servers that may not even be in the same location.

The StayLinked Fair Licensing Policy: Use Only the Licenses You Need

If you're running Terminal Emulation on Avery Dennison devices using one of our competitors' approaches, odds are you're paying for licenses that are not in use. It's that simple. Unfortunately, with device-side licensing, the devices that aren't being used (devices sitting in cradles, devices that aren't working, device in lockers and drawers, and devices that are being repaired) are all unnecessarily using licenses you've paid for. This can be an added and invisible expense that many customers may not be aware of.

With StayLinked, you license only your Avery Dennison devices in use. Because of StayLinked's unique centralized architecture, licensing is handled only when devices connect through the central server. This ensures you pay for the licenses you use, and not your entire inventory of mobile devices.

And with StayLinked iQ you can manage your permanent and temporary licenses in an easy-to-use interface that gives you visibility into usage patterns, so you can see what's going on. From there, optimization is a snap. Other systems simply can't do that.
