IKEA is a global company expanding rapidly. Demands of availability, lowering prices and health and safety also requires more efficient logistics, more secure and accurate data and more control over the quality in the whole Supply Chain.

In September 2022 IKEA introduced IKEA Print Application in Cloud. That enables IKEA suppliers to print dynamic labels with GS1 Datamatrix barcode. All data for labels and printing application are held in Cloud.

With this Hybrid model S, printing will be done on local computer at suppliers, triggered from supplier's ERP/WMS system, with data for labels still fetched from Cloud database.
