local dining establishments. With grocery stores and meal kit services offering
additional convenient and affordable dining options for customers to choose from,
and with many restaurants turning to faster and smarter automation methods to
power their operations, now is the time for your restaurant to step up its game.
Ultimately, what your restaurant needs to do is offer a complete experience for your
guests. The only way to effectively do this is to understand the whole diner journey
and how the decisions you make along the way affect it.

From assembly and pick-and-place to material handling and packaging, the use of robots is on the rise in factory automation. Extremely customizable in even the most complex applications, automation systems are beneficial for a wide variety of reasons. Taking the plunge into automation, however, can be confusing and daunting. With so many factors to consider, you may be wondering, “Where do I start?” With over 35 years of experience in the automation industry, we have broken down the process, step-by-step, to guide you on your journey. Keep in mind that this guide is a broad overview, but can serve well as a starting point for those new to automation.
The average organization receives 1,200 invoices every month according to the Institute of Finance & Management. What’s more, between 70 percent and 80 percent of all invoices in the United States are still paper-based. That’s a lot of information to keep track of – and a lot of paper to shuffle around. It’s no surprise, then, that 80 percent of businesses would love to streamline their accounts payable processes. But what stops them from doing so isn’t an overly complex, impossible-to understand process – it’s confusion about the unknown, and fear that automating AP will be time-consuming, difficult, and expensive.
This report was developed to provide you with real, simple steps you can take to digitize and streamline your invoice processing. As you do so you’ll recognize significant benefits, including happier employees and a healthier bottom line.

Solvent printing is the perfect solution for signs, vehicle wraps, and many other
print applications. Solvent inks produce top-quality graphics, enabling printing
service providers (PSPs) to maintain high-volume output and lower production
costs while providing their customers superior color gamut and accuracy.
Although solvent inks provide great performance and have many additional
bene ts, they come with one frustrating work ow drawback: the delays PSPs
experience by having to wait for solvent ink to dry, particularly when the
application requires lamination. A new breakthrough solvent ink technology
solves this problem by reducing print curing time by at least 75% of the 24
hour waiting period normally recognized by media manufacturers and industry
These new solvent inks make it possible for PSPs to laminate solvent prints on the
same day they are printed. PSPs can achieve high image quality without sacri cing
valuable time, plus they can avoid clutter and reduce spa
Digital Elektronik bought four Epson robots for the job, and these robots completed the task in just a few months. Since then Digital Elektronik has used the robots for new applications, some similar but others quite different, demonstrating a key advantage of Epson robots in being flexible and reusable. Volker Spanier, head of factory automation at Epson Germany, says, “I think this is an excellent example of how Epson robots can improve production line efficiency and complete tasks that may not even be possible by hand. It’s also great to see our robots involved in the construction of such a memorable landmark that will stand the test of time.”
Per realizzare il lavoro, Digital Elektronik ha acquistato quattro robot Epson, che hanno completato l'attività in pochi mesi. Da allora Digital Elektronik ha impiegato i robot in nuove applicazioni, alcune simili e altre molto diverse, dimostrando così alcuni dei maggiori vantaggi offerti dai robot Epson: la versatilità e la possibilità di essere riutilizzati.
Volker Spanier, responsabile Factory Automation di Epson Germany, spiega: "Credo sia un ottimo esempio di come i robot Epson possono migliorare l'efficienza della linea di produzione e completare attività impossibili a mano. È bellissimo vedere i nostri robot che partecipano alla costruzione di un edificio così straordinario, che resisterà alla prova del tempo".
Digital Elektronik kaufte für diesen Job vier Epson Roboter und diese Roboter beendeten die Aufgabe in nur wenigen Monaten. Seitdem hat Digital Elektronik die Roboter für neue Anwendungen eingesetzt, von denen einige ähnlich, andere jedoch recht verschieden waren. Darin zeigt sich, dass ihre flexiblen Einsatzmöglichkeiten ein wesentlicher Vorteil von Epson Robotern ist.
Volker Spanier, Leiter von Factory Automation Epson Deutschland GmbH, sagt:„ Ich denke, dass dies ist ein hervorragendes Beispiel dafür ist, wie die Roboter von Epson die Effizienz von Produktionslinien verbessern und Aufgaben vollenden können, die von Hand vielleicht sogar unmöglich wären. Es ist auch großartig zu sehen, dass unsere Roboter für den Bau einer solch denkwürdigen Sehenswürdigkeit eingesetzt werden, die für lange Zeit fortbestehen wird“.

financial institutions have to help them re-invent their branch experience. Capabilities are
available today that were not imagined a decade ago. This is an exciting time for those
institutions that can look to the future and enhance their offerings.

customer needs and expectations. Millennials, baby boomers, small businesses – all are
important market segments with very different wants and needs. Driven by technology,
the new demand is for a complete online presence, complemented by more flexibility in
personalized services, and specialized expertise available in every branch.

Consumers worldwide continue to adopt and use technology in their shopping experience.
Faced with rising customer expectations and increasing competitive pressures, retailers
now are prioritizing in-store innovation. Many retailers have adopted multichannel
implementations, in which mobile, web, and in-store shopping are enabled but not delivered
consistently to the customer. The next step in this evolution is an omnichannel strategy, now
being deployed by some retailers, which presents a consistent shopping experience across
mobile, web, and in-store channels. Omnichannel also enables retailers to integrate back-end
infrastructure technologies (e.g., servers, databases, etc.) and cloud-based services (e.g., loyalty
programs, personalized recommendations, inventory management, etc.) to improve many
aspects of store and enterprise operations.
An omnichannel strategy relies on several core and supporting technologies. The key factors in
evaluating any omnichannel-enabling solution includ
