Are you about to order some branded flash drives for a forthcoming show, exhibition or event and you’re dreading the thought of having to load each and every one of them with data files.
We know the feeling. We’ve been supplying branded USB flash drives and fully customised (bespoke) USB memory sticks for many years and during this time we’ve pre-loaded hundreds of thousands of memory sticks on behalf of our
customers. In the early days we used to pre-load them one at a time using a 4-port USB hub connected to a PC and then “dragging and dropping” the content onto each memory stick. When the data was copied over we’d then have to “stop” and “eject” the memory stick via the operating system before removing each stick and starting the process all over again! As you can image this was a mind numbing and time consuming job that no one wanted to do.
Pre-loading data onto hundreds and occasionally thousands of memory sticks would take hours and in some cases days and as a result very few customers either considered or were will to pay for pre-loading of data.
Today things are very different. Commercial and automatic USB data duplication equipment means that thousands of memory sticks can now be loaded with data very quickly and at the press of a button. These professional systems are rack mounted and can be expanded to meet growing demand.
For our customers all it means is that they now supply us with the data they need loading onto their memory sticks. We then create a “master” USB memory stick with the data loaded onto it (which the customer approves) and we then use this “master” to replicate all of the other memory sticks they have ordered.
There is still the fiddly bit of preparing each stick for the load process and then re-packing them but its significantly easier and quicker than it used to be!
The beauty of the professional data duplication equipment that we use at USB2U is that during the data loading process we effectively test and QA each stick again before they are sent to our customers. We can also provide detailed reports on the overall amount of data loaded; the data transfer speeds of the sticks and any failures.
The level of investment in this professional equipment is significant but it allows us to offer a complete solution that includes the supply of branded flash drives and accessories, data loading and if needed fulfilment.
