McAllen Police Department Reduces Dismissed Tickets by Half

Posted March 21, 2012

E-Citation Produces More Legible Tickets, Increases Revenue

About McAllen Police Department

The McAllen Police Department (MPD) serves the McAllen, Texas, metro area, with a population of about 130,000. Just five miles from the U.S.-Mexico border and the Mexican city of Reynosa (with a population of 500,000), the city’s size can grow by 200,000 to 300,000 commuters each day. The MPD employs 272 sworn officers and approximately 380 total employees.

Challenge

Like many police departments, MPD had long issued hand-written paper tickets to offenders. The manual process left room for errors in two places:

  • Point of issuance—Handwritten ticket information could be incorrect or illegible.
  • Municipal court—Administrators occasionally entered dates, locations, license numbers, or license plates incorrectly.

Puritan Bakery Expedites Each Customer Delivery with Mobile Solution

Posted March 19, 2012

Route Drivers, Accounting Team Complete Work Faster

Touting “the best buns in town,” Puritan Bakery has served Southern California since 1938. The continuously family-owned and -run company delivers fresh hamburger buns and breads daily to restaurants, fast food stands and coffee shops, including many of the area’s iconic establishments. Now serving more than 1,000 customers, Puritan attributes its growth and longevity to quality products and superb customer service.

Challenge

Due to the short shelf life of bakery products, Puritan bakes and delivers its breads each day based on customer demand. All customers must have their orders in by noon the day preceding delivery.

Although Puritan delivery drivers used mobile devices previously, they were not integrated with the main office. That meant order changes given to drivers in the field were not received until drivers returned from delivery routes.

Wireless Carrier in Need of Some Asset Management

Posted December 15, 2011

Motorola DS3508 barcode scanner
One of the largest wireless carriers in America required a revamp of all of their cellular towers and needed to begin scanning 2D barcodes in order to track all the equipment in each tower. The company’s main concern was to be able to parse the equipments’ serial numbers, which were encoded in different barcode formats by three different manufacturers. BarcodesInc provided them with over 400 Motorola DS3508 barcode scanners, custom configured for their application and ready to use out of the box. The company was so happy with their new solution, they have shown interest in two future orders of comparable magnitude.
