Physical labels were designed and manufactured to fit the exact specifications of Stutch Data's customer for durable, high quality labels. These same labels were provided as a combination of plain labels for overprinting in-house on CX & CT printers as well as a large portion being pre-printed in the SATO Print Bureau prior to shipment to international branches of customer. The local branch of the customer was also supplied with Motorola MC55 Terminals and software for the purposes of capturing the details of each asset.
