Business Challenge

Timberland made the decision to purchase the cognitive Advantage printer to print merchandise tags at each of their retail outlets around the globe. The company currently tickets product at their various warehouse locations, and then boxes and ships the merchandise to the individual Retail stores. The goal for Timberland was to allow store personnel the ability to perform this same function at the Retail store level to accommodate the ticketing of merchandise with lost/missing tags, and the re-ticketing of merchandise for upcoming Retail store sales promotions.
