Label printers like the one used in Seawards Test n’ tag system, are very useful and can be time saving. The Test n’ Tag label provides the status of pass or fail, a barcode, date of test, date of next test and the name of the person who completed the test. Clearly there is a cost involved with the initial investment which would have to include a scanner and in purchasing the replacement label cartridges. One has to balance the usefulness and increase in efficiency against the costs involved.
