TEKLYNX & BeanTown Chemical

AIM 2015 AIDC (Non RFID) Case Study Competition Participant

The Business and Technical Challenge
BeanTown Chemical is a chemical manufacturing and supply company based in
Hudson, NH. Founded in 2014 by two chemical industry veterans, the company’s
long-term goal is to become one of the top research chemical suppliers in the world.
BeanTown Chemical produces and distributes research chemical products for
pharmaceutical companies and academic institutions in sizes ranging from milliliters
and milligrams to bulk orders.

Since BeanTown Chemical produces over 7,000 products and over 5,500 unique
chemicals, each coming in two or three sizes (with over half classied as hazardous),
reaching GHS compliance was bound to be especially complex. GHS standards
establish an elaborate system of phrases and pictograms that need to be included
on each chemical’s individual barcode label. As some of BeanTown Chemical’s
products are sold in small bottles, many of its labels would need an extensive
amount of information to beprinted onto labels as small as 1 inch by 3 inches. Fitting
multiple pictograms and phrases onto such tiny labels would prove to be challenging.
Additionally, BeanTown Chemical had its product and label data in an ERP system
and a SQL server. Due to all these challenges and requirements, BeanTown
Chemical needed a exible, robust barcode labeling system. "Labeling is one of the
most daunting projects you can have in the business. ere are a lot of regulations,”
Singelais said. "It is very dicult to nd a product that will allow you to do it effciently
and affordably because there are certain requirements for color, where data
should be placed, what the pictograms should look like and how many to display,
depending on the hazard.”

The Solution
BeanTown Chemical contacted TEKLYNX because of their position in the barcode
label design software space. TEKLYNX then connected them with ValuTrack,
TEKLYNX' premier business partner. Dave Janelle, ValuTrack’s Regional Sales
Manager, worked closely with Frederick and Singelais to find a solution that was flexible
enough to handle laser and inkjet printers, as well as the ability to easily switch
between different label sizes. After talking to them about their industry and requirements,
he recommended CODESOFT, a product that had proven successful for many
customers. He also suggested they purchase Epson ColorWorks C3500 and C831
Inkjet Label Printers, as they would be fully compatible with CODESOFT, were
reasonably priced and capable of printing the color labels required by GHS.
