Toshiba TEC, a global leader in printing, imaging solutions and services, is proud to announce to the Logistics industry, the e-STUDIO306LP/RD30. It is the world’s first multifunction printer (MFP) to incorporate a unique erasable toner enabling the output to be erased and re-used multiple times.
The e-STUDIO306LP/RD30 is a revolutionary MFP system like no other on the market. By using regular office paper, the e-STUDIO306LP can print documents with an erasable blue toner that is easily identifiable in any work environment. One sheet of paper can be reused multiple times once fed or passed through the e-STUDIO RD30 eraser unit. At the same time it can be scanned and archived electronically to a designated file location.
Since its launch, the e-STUDIO306LP/RD30 has been installed in several organisations all endeavouring to reduce the amount of paper used on site as well as reduce their carbon footprint. We believe, the logistics industry can benefit greatly by utilising this innovative system.
In a warehouse environment, the life span of documents such as order sheets, picking slips and inventory reports are short lived and often printed in excessive volumes. However, the need to reduce these paper levels is highly desirable within many businesses. Toshiba’s paper reusing system reduces paper, cost and carbon emissions by reusing the same paper several times. It also improves warehouse efficiency by scanning and sorting the paper automatically.
Onest Logistics is the second largest logistics and warehousing solution provider in Mexico stretching across 22 offices in Mexico. The company is conscious about social responsibility and often takes initiative in promoting environmental conservation activities. The company introduced the Toshiba e-STUDIO306LP/RD30 to their business environments having discovering the benefits of adopting Toshiba’s revolutionary paper reusing system.
Onest Logistics focused on the total amount of paper used in their company. They print 500,000 pages a month, most of which are thrown away only a few days after being printed. To reduce paper consumption, the e-STUDIO306LP/RD30 has been installed in their Head Office and warehouses. Employees are currently printing order-confirmation reports, picking orders, inventory validation reports and order dispatch sheets with Toshiba’s e-STUDIO306LP. Noticeably they have found that productivity is maintained whilst also achieving their corporate environmental goals.
Pilot Pen Australia
Pilot Pen Australia has installed the Toshiba e-STUDIO306LP/RD30 in its national warehouse. They understand the challenges of day to day paper usage and the critical part paper plays within a business environment. On average, 500 picking slips are printed per day in the warehouse.
Today, Pilot Pen is printing picking slips with an e-STUDIO306LP and the warehouse staff ticks off items with a Pilot Frixion erasable-ink pen. After checking the picking list, the paper is then fed through the e-STUDIORD30 erasing unit where the erasing process begins. That same paper can then be reused through the e-STUDIO306LP.
By using Toshiba’s e-STUDIO306LP/RD30, Pilot Pen Australia has reduced their paper consumption by more than 90% and have adapted to this system at their warehouse.
Given Pilot Pen Australia were satisfied with the performance of the e-STUDIO306LP/RD30, they purchased a second e-STUDIO 306LP/RD30 which is being utilised by the rest of their head office, including accounts payable, finance and marketing. Internal documents within the business have been streamlined to be printed, archived and erased. Usage of this system at their office has also resulted in less filing cabinets occupying precious office space.
Cases of Onest Logistics and Pilot Pen Australia prove that there are many opportunities to decrease temporary paper use in warehouses/distribution centres for logistics and in various other industries such as manufacturing and retail. The system improves work efficiency, and makes more economical use of paper. This is a whole new way to be more environmentally friendly, more efficient and more create economical work processes.

The web app is agile. The REST API is agile. The testing and planning are agile. But alas, data infrastructures certainly are not. Once an application matures, changing the shape or indexing scheme of data often forces at best a top down planning exercise and at worst includes schema changes that force downtime. The time has come for a new approach that fundamentally advances the agility of distributed data infrastructures. Come learn about a new solution to the problems faced by software organ...

Culture is the most important ingredient of DevOps. The challenge for most organizations is defining and communicating a vision of beneficial DevOps culture for their organizations, and then facilitating the changes needed to achieve that. Often this comes down to an ability to provide true leadership. As a CIO, are your direct reports IT managers or are they IT leaders?

Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as...

Everyone talks about continuous integration and continuous delivery but those are just two ends of the pipeline. In the middle of DevOps is continuous testing (CT), and many organizations are struggling to implement continuous testing effectively. After all, without continuous testing there is no delivery. And Lab-As-A-Service (LaaS) enhances the CT with dynamic on-demand self-serve test topologies. CT together with LAAS make a powerful combination that perfectly serves complex software developm...
