A Warehouse Robotics Company Implements iPad Mini & Powerful Barcode Scanning Solution

Posted July 6, 2018

warehouse-robotsExecutive Summary
A warehouse robotics manufacturing company was in search of a user interface to complete and enhance their robots. A powerful barcode scanning solution with a strong and durable scan engine was required to improve processes. Additionally, it needed to be compatible with the iPad Mini due to their workers familiarity with the product and integration with their existing enterprise software.

Barcodes identified an optimal barcode scanning solution that not only streamlined processes but also increased the revenue stream for a robotics company’s clients.

The Business Challenge
The robots created by the robotics company are used at their customer’s facilities. A technologically advanced solution was required to allow warehouse associates the ability to interact directly with the robots for order picking, inventory control, and efficiency measures. They need a simple and lightweight solution to implement various warehouse management applications.

Solution
Barcodes recommended the Infinite Peripherals Infinea Tab™ M and case (CS-TAL) with 1D/2D barcode scanner, along with the Apple iPad Mini. This allowed mobile employees to convert the Apple iPad Mini into a powerful warehouse management and scanning solution to fulfill their operational needs. The Infinea Tab™ M has a 2D imager scan engine which reads the most widely used 1D and 2D barcodes that has made it the ideal solution for order picking and inventory control.

Benefits
Having implemented the solution, the warehouse robotics company has seen the benefits of using an iPad mini and powerful scanning solution in one. The intuitive user interface on the Infinea Tab™ M has led to increased productivity by the end users, which has allowed more orders to ship; thus, revenue to increase for their customers.

The warehouse robotics company has scaled widely once their robots were delivered and implemented at each of their customer’s site. Not only through word of mouth, but through various trade shows, the interest in the robots and the technology used within the robots has set the company on a path for tremendous growth with the help of Barcodes.


U.S. Pet Food Manufacturer Implements Barcode Scanning & Mobile Computing Solution that Increases Productivity & Efficiency by 25%

Posted July 5, 2018

dog-waiting-eatExecutive Summary
A large pet food manufacturer was in search for a warehouse management solution (WMS) to keep track of their product across their three US facilities and increase visibility into their inventory and process control. They were looking for a solution that could connect their existing lot tracking, process control, and shipping software together under one warehouse management umbrella. Barcodes identified an optimal barcode scanning and mobile computing solution that provided increased visibility into their inventory and process control, enhanced employee productivity and had the aptitude to run their proprietary WMS on an Android operating system. This allowed the pet food manufacturer to streamline their processes and add a layer of accountability to their methods.

The Business Challenge
Warehouse employees need access to secure information right away. The current method of relying on their memory to keep track of the products’ physical location in the warehouse was not working. It was taking workers too long to access the data they needed to perform their jobs effectively and efficiently. There were also issues with the human memory error that slowed down processes. To address these concerns, the pet food manufacturer would need to invest in a barcode scanning and mobile computing solution capable of providing workers with inventory and product information in real time. They needed a solution that can scan pallets stored on top level racks, accept both touchscreen data and keyed data, as well as have an open operating system to future proof their business. Investing in this solution would allow the manufacturer employees to work more efficiently and eliminate the human error associated with memorizing product and inventory information.

Solution
Barcodes recommended the Janam XG3 Rugged Mobile Computer. The Janam XG3 provides a warehouse ready rugged mobile scanner, with a scan range of 15 inches to 50 feet, touchscreen and 57-key keypad for data entry. In addition, the XG3 has the ability to run their proprietary WMS on an Android operating system. This allowed the pet food manufacturer to manage and track all items in an effective and efficient manner and add a new layer of accountability to their process.

Benefits
Barcodes deployed forty-five Janam XG3s in three US facilities in a short amount of time. The pet food manufacturer’s business expectations continue to be met and exceeded. Not only do employees know where all their inventory is, from receiving raw goods to shipping finished product, but they have seen an increase in productivity and efficiency by 25%. In addition, they have eliminated the human error associated with memorizing inventory information.
