In our daily lives, we need to know what time we set the alarm clock, what day and time we have a dentist appointment, when our child gets out of school depending on what activities he/she is doing, etc. In the business world, we need to make payments, place orders with suppliers, make predictions about sales and product requirements, but above all, we need to respond to customer needs on time. In the absence of regular, even weekly planning: Would it be good to know what day our customer needs the order/service and make a prediction in days…?
Nowadays, there is no company that does not have a management system in place to develop its activity efficiently, from placing orders with suppliers to arriving on time to the final customer.
Increasingly, A.I. systems are being used to analyze all the data available to the company in order to optimize management based on predictions, including customer profiles (age range, needs, consumption timing, etc.).
When we drive our car, the GPS tells us how to get there and how long it will take us. The vehicle’s own system tells us how many kilometers of autonomy we have left to refuel and at which location along the route we can do so.
When it comes to a printer monitoring system, time management is vital so that the customer always has the right consumable before the previous one runs out. Consumable alerts usually set a warning threshold when there is 20% of the consumable left. What if we could set the threshold in days and group the shipment of orders? This, which is no small thing, is only possible with Nubeprint. Its system gives the possibility to select in % or on days when we want the alert to be triggered, even differentiating the consumables of the same printer. By doing so, we will be safe from sudden drops in the consumables load, as happens in those brands of printers that only give sections in % (100, 75, 50, 25 and 0), where it is impossible to foresee the customer’s need.
We will also adjust delivery according to the type of customer: if it is a cost-per-copy contract, we want the consumable change to be made at the right time, avoiding waste; if we know that our customer will install the consumable as it arrives, it is better to send it a couple of days before the previous one runs out.
In addition, by marking the threshold in days, the Nubeprint system makes it possible to group the shipments of a specific customer on a single day of the week, thus optimizing delivery management, avoiding several shipments to the same customer in the same week and saving on costs.
In short, time management is paramount in any aspect of life and in any industry. The more accurate we are with our customer’s needs, the closer we will be to achieving a service of excellence, which will result in the prestige of our brand.
