It’s All about Colorants
Colorants are a huge part of the dispensing process and therefore, in this release, we focused mostly on them. Having introduced the Colorant refill history recently, the first huge colorant news is the Colorant consumption statistics which enables you to keep track of your processes and costs and might lead to increased efficiency in your POS. In our statistics (which admittedly cannot compete with TMC), you can monitor three different views of Colorant consumption – amounts for dispensings only, purges only or both – dispensings and purges together. The possibility to filter the data and to export them is taken for granted.
Knowing the exact volume of each colorant going into your dispenser and out again is one thing – this is what the aforementioned Statistics section is for. Yet, to see the flow, the colorants must be ushered into the machine, first. This action can now be done extremely simply and fast using the Refill button on Canisters view or in Canisters Levels pop-up. Of course, you can keep to the good old ways – refill during dispensing or using Autotasks.
Now you might be thinking – all this sounds beautifully and merry, but although I know how much I am refilling and consuming and I can perform refills easily, how can I be sure not to make a mistake when refilling colorants? We are glad you asked! The answer is simple as always with Redlike – use our Refill barcode validation! The Dispensing settings now offer you the option to use barcode validation in more ways – either you are using the full validation (scanning canister as well as the colorant package), or you can use it as a quick way to refill the correct amount (considering refill factor) of the correct colorant from the correct colorant package. As an extra – you can add an image of the colorant package to be completely mistake-bulletproof! Do not forget to allow barcodes in Software options and to check the correctness of the barcode in our Barcode testing environment!
Our Redlike team is capable of everything! To be more precise – everything except for restricting your own potential and creativity! We support your growth and business and we will never stop. See for yourself and check out the new software customisation options, for example the possibility to set screensaver timeout and reactivate your license. Decide for yourself if working with tabs is your thing and if so, you might consider other tab working settings such as overwriting the last formula tab and other! With Redlike, customisations know no limits!
