Basic automated line protection

The OAL Connected Mobile label & date code verification system is just the solution to get a basic level of line protection without the need for a big investment.

If any of the following apply to your facility then this solution is for you:

  • Smaller volumes

  • Ambient products

  • Hand-labelled products

The OAL Connected Mobile solution offers you the right tools to carry out and store quality checks electronically, with greater traceability and accuracy than just paper alone. It’s widely recognised that human error is to blame for many emergency product withdrawals (EPWs) and product recalls so this system allows you to minimise operator involvement and protects your packaging line from the risk of a wrong date code leaving your facility.

The self-contained unit employs our Autocoding expertise in a mobile unit, which can connect to your server to ensure all data is backed up but there is no need for any additional equipment, making it a much more cost-effective solution than traditional automated label & date code verification solutions.

Relegate paper to the (recycling) bin


We understand that while automation is usually desirable, it can sometimes be difficult to justify the investment and so paper-based checks are often considered to be the next best solution. But are they really? Relying on paper can have a number of drawbacks, namely:

  • Time-consuming: operators must fill in the paper work, then the Technical Manager must double sign them off - how much time does this cost, not to mention the labour cost involved?

  • Open to error: are the paper-based checks always filled in at the correct time? Do they always reflect what happened accurately?

  • Storage: where do you store all of this paperwork? Some paperwork can be stored for 5-7 years, do you have enough space for this?

    What if all of your checks could be automated, saving time and money, accurately capturing information and eliminating paper?

We combine Toughpads - the toughest mobile unit on the market - configured with our award-winning Autocoding technology to protect your line. Toughpads are IP65 rated, meaning they have full protection against dust and other particulates and low-pressure jets (6.3 mm) of directed water from any angle so it can withstand any conditions in your facility.

Our expert team will work with you to integrate the required database into your server to ensure that all data is backed up and to centralise your activity should multiple mobile units be required. The checks you specify are loaded up into the supervisory by our team, and then set up on the Toughpad so you can begin checking label and date codes accurately from day one. All you need to do is take photos of your label and date codes with the built-in camera and the data is all stored accurately for your records. The system can also be used to scan barcodes if needed as part of your checks.

Thanks to our OAL Connected Offline capabilities, inspections can be carried out anywhere in your facility and once completed, you simply need to dock the Toughpad for all data to be transferred to your servers to ensure a full back-up. The system can even run multiple products and/or lines depending on the needs of your facility.

You also have the option to add in APRIL Eye to read the date code back (rather than just completing checks) for enhanced protection. As with all of our solutions, we maintain complete independence from the printer, vital in reducing the risk of human error on the line and you have access to our 24/7 Customer Support Team to ensure that the system works for you at all times.
