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.
