How MarkMagic Labels, Forms, and RFID Helps ClosetMaid Get Organized

The Customer

If you’ve ever been in a Home Depot store or a Lowe’s Home Improvement Warehouse, you’ve seen aisles of build-it-yourself shelving and accessories from ClosetMaid of Ocala, Florida. ClosetMaid who uses MarkMagic barcode label and forms software for document processing, is the leading manufacturer and marketer of home storage and organization products.

The Challenge

ClosetMaid is a division of Emerson and part of its Emerson Storage Solutions business, which provides answers to storage challenges for the consumer, commercial, healthcare, food service, and industrial markets.

ClosetMaid has been in the forefront of helping builders and homeowners maximize storage space since 1964. And since 1992, MarkMagic has been helping the company organize their own barcoding needs.

According to Walter “Wally” Watts, VP of MIS, “When we first started using MarkMagic in 1992, we were using only Monarch printers. Since then, we’ve added Intermec and Zebra printers, and MarkMagic has supported them all.”

The Solution

First, the company selected MarkMagic to barcode printing capabilities. Rubbermaid prints barcode labels on Zebra thermal label printers. Once Watts started using MarkMagic for his labeling needs, he found additional uses for the package and upgraded his MarkMagic license to Enterprise Edition.

In addition to driving Zebra thermal printers, with MarkMagic for Labels, Watts uses MarkMagic Forms and IBM IPDS printers to print shipping forms for Home Depot.

ClosetMaid was early to anticipate EPC-compliance requirements, launching an RFID project using MarkMagic to drive their RFID encoders as well.

The Result

“When we first started using MarkMagic in 1992, we were using only Monarch printers. Since then, we’ve added Intermec and Zebra printers, and MarkMagic has supported them all.”
