How did OMNI become the happiest workplace in America?

by OMNI SystemsJuly 30, 2018 11:46

At OMNI, we're dedicated to the happiness of both our clients and our workers. This dedication has not gone unnoticed. Below is an excerpt from a feature on Cleveland.com written by Olivera Perkins, exploring how OMNI Systems became a top-ranked workplace in the United States.

Why are these Ohio label makers the happiest workers in America?

"Happiness eludes so many of us, especially at work. Perhaps less so at OMNI Systems.

National reports and workplace studies show that employee satisfaction is a common - but often unmet - goal. But workers and managers at [OMNI Systems] show it is attainable with sincere effort. OMNI ranked first nationally last year on a new "workplace happiness" index, beating out more than 600 employers evaluated by jobs site Monster.com and kununu.com, a website that provides workplace reviews.

Hearing how OMNI (short for "Open Minds New Ideas") employees speak about their workplace leaves little doubt about the high level of satisfaction these blue-collar workers have. The company, owned by Adam DeFrancesco, prints labels for commercial customers, from barcodes on Amazon boxes to stickers on packages of meat in refrigerated supermarket display cases." Read the full article >

Recognizing Technology and Innovation in Cleveland

by OMNI SystemsMarch 1, 2018 09:54

We're excited to announce that OMNI Systems has received a 2018 “Cleveland Technology Award” by Smart Business Magazine for the second consecutive year. We're one of several companies that will receive the award at this year’s Cleveland Tech Awards Luncheon on March 22, 2018. According to Smart Business, the Cleveland Technology Awards aim to recognize dynamic Northeast Ohio organizations that embrace the new horizon created by changing technologies. Honorees are recognized in one of three categories: established developers or tech firms, startup tech firms and implementers/users.

This award recognizes OMNI’s ongoing initiatives to implement world-class ERP systems and robotic equipment, which has resulted in a dramatic increase in throughput coupled with a decrease in both job times and scrap material. The investments in technology have catalyzed significant manufacturing successes, with a 98 percent fill rate and 80 percent run efficiency.

“We’re proud to be recognized again this year as a company dedicated to innovation through technology development and adoption in Northeast Ohio,” says Adam DeFrancesco, our founder and CEO. “Manufacturing innovation through investing in new production technology is a core strategy of ours, enabling us to drive costs lower and position ourselves as the premier high quality-low cost thermal label printer in North America.”

Can Your Thermal Label Supplier Weather the Storm in the Age of IIoT?

by OMNI SystemsMarch 1, 2017 09:55

With technology growing leaps and bounds in today’s age, manufacturing becomes more and more dependent on such technology for everyday tasks. As outlined in IndustryWeek, increased connectivity and the use of big data are driving waves of manufacturing innovation. Printing and converting are no strangers to this trend. But as manufacturing becomes more dependent on the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), it also becomes more vulnerable. Old risks such as natural disasters and machinery breakages are now supplemented with new risks from hacking and grid downtime. As we saw just last week, one typo in a service provider like Amazon’s AWS can bring down hundreds of connected services.

So as someone who depends on suppliers for quick and reliable turnaround and delivery, what can you do to protect yourself in the new world of IIoT? The answer is easy: make sure your provider is prepared for any type of disaster. There are three main categories you should ensure your thermal label supplier is prepared for:

  1. Natural Disasters
    Natural disasters can be some of the most devastating, as they are often unpredictable and always uncontrollable. While companies can take steps to reverse hacks, it’s impossible to redirect or reverse a tornado! Fortunately, manufacturers can implement several safeguards and processes to mitigate the impact these disasters can have on their production. This includes holding safety stock in secondary locations, owning and/or leasing multiple plants in different locales, signing reciprocated manufacturing agreements, and maintaining raw material backup inventory. For printers, it is also imperative to have a top-of-the-line fire alarm and suppression systems in place.

  2. IT and Grid Downtime
    Technology and the internet are quickly changing the face of manufacturing, and thus introducing new threats to production. Thermal label suppliers are not immune to these, becoming more dependent on connectivity to run presses and communication throughout the entire supply chain process. Converters keeping ahead of these risks are able to implement safeguards, utilizing cloud backups, mirrored server structure, and even investing in third-party services that provide computers, phones, electricity and internet in the case of a severe outage. 

  3. Security Threats
    While technical and natural disasters typically have more widespread impacts on manufacturing, a physical security threat to a building can be just as serious. Companies who recognize this type of threat implement multiple levels of security, for both the safety of their employees and their operations. Examples include CCTV, pass card/fob entry, limited guest access, outdoor and emergency lighting and security alarms and official procedures. Regular drills are also important. Third-party services, as mentioned previously, can also provide backup technology and even mobile office locations in the case of long-term events.

Whether you’re evaluating a new or existing thermal label converter, don’t forget to consider their levels of emergency preparedness. Thinking of these factors now could save your company countless hours and significant amounts of money in the future.

How Innovation Impacts Label Converter Production

by OMNI SystemsJanuary 1, 2017 11:13

Innovation: a frequently used buzzword. But, when applied as part of a consistent growth plan, can greatly impact how a thermal label converter does business. For a converter, innovation means keeping abreast of industry changes, like the shift we saw in 2016 towards more efficient presses and hybrid solutions. Additionally, innovation requires constant review and improvement of internal processes to remove redundancies and time demands.

For OMNI Systems, innovation means that we’re constantly looking for new ways to grow our thermal label business – in 2016 that meant we needed to respond to growing demands by investing in new manufacturing technology. Watch our video below to learn more about our commitment to growth and see some of our newest presses in action:

Thermal Product ID Labels: How OMNI Saved One Retailer Millions

by OMNI SystemsJuly 1, 2016 14:44

Is it even possible to save millions of dollars on thermal labels?

Electronics Retailer

Although most national and regional retail chains view labels as a commodity item, for large operations that consume millions of thermal labels each month, it is a prime operating expense with sourcing decisions made at the corporate level.

When tasked with converting from UPS labels to new shipping and inventory tracking labels within 8 weeks, one national retailer turned to OMNI Systems and was able to save millions in annual label costs. With so much at stake, retailers are turning instead to reliable label providers that are capable of delivering a quality product, consistently, at a lower price. For many, this means partnering directly with specialty label converters that can pass on savings due to bulk purchasing power of thermal media direct from its source without voiding OEM warranties.
