Earlier this week, Unisys Corporation ( UIS ) declared that after three months of hard work, it has finally launched the first ever home-printed baggage tag solutions at Billund Airport in Denmark for international passengers. The solution is designed to render the passenger check-in process simpler and more convenient.

The Internet check-in application and local check-in assistant program had been previously installed successfully by Unisys through its passenger facilitation solution program started in 2007 at Billund Airport. With the implementation of this bag tag solution, the company demonstrates its continued interest towards ameliorating overall standards of performance enhancing customer experiences.

In today's world, time is money. Everyone is looking for means and ways to reduce even the slightest time lags at any juncture. Gone are those days when passengers would wait in queues to first avail paper tags, then tie them to their baggage items and then go for the final drop off at a bag drop counter. With the implementation of this new system, baggage tags can be printed by passengers even before setting foot at the airport.

The system has been designed to operate smoothly with a separate line for pre-tagged baggage items at the airport. The printed boarding pass contains the number of items for check-in, which shall be presented at the counter along with the printed bag tag which would go inside a plastic bag tag holder provided at the airport itself. With this system, passengers can save valuable time at the airport, an aspect of burgeoning importance globally.

There still exist companies, however, which threaten Unisys' formidable industry position at all times. These include big players such as CoStar Group Inc. ( CSGP ), EPAM Systems, Inc. ( EPAM ) and Acxiom Corporation ( ACXM ).

The current Zacks Consensus Estimate for the second quarter of 2012 and for fiscal 2012 is 48 cents per share and $2.90 per share, respectively. The company currently retains a Zacks #1 Rank, which translates into a short-term 'Strong Buy' rating.
