Dedicated Operating System for AIDC?

Posted March 25, 2014

2014-03-25_0915Automatic identification and data capture (AIDC) and the technologies surrounding it have become commonplace on warehouse floors and in supply chains throughout the world. From convenience stores to major supermarkets or from global shipping centers to your local post office, chances are you’ve seen a handheld device that can instantly scan and share information through phone lines or through a wireless connection.

When thinking about the operating systems behind these devices, one might come to a conclusion that a single operating system would dominate the installed population. The reality is that there are three major variants that are in use in the AIDC space:

  • Legacy Operating System — A platform that continues to be used in spite of its obsolescence and incompatibility with modern equivalents.
  • Mobile Device Operating System — A mobile device OS generally built to support functions (keyboards, email, text messaging, etc.) and features commonly available on mobile consumer devices.
  • Dedicated Handheld Operating System — A operating system specifically developed to support functions necessary for AIDC use (retail floor, warehouses, manufacturing, etc.).

Posted August 22, 2013

2013-08-22_1001The pest control industry has changed dramatically, evolving from the antiquated perception of a technician armed with chemicals ready to do battle against bugs and rodents. Today’s pest control technician is armed with technology like mobile computers and scanners that keep him efficient and effective while optimizing customer service.

In the Ohio Valley, Okolona Pest Control is the perfect example of a modern pest control operation. Okolona Pest Control is a multifaceted service company that offers pest control and pest damage repair. The company has roots reaching back to 1972 when it was founded. This third generation, family run operation has grown to over 84 employees that provides services to residential and commercial clients from Southern Indiana to Northern Kentucky. Okolona also services AIB inspected food processing facilities. AIB has strict standards for documentation and inspection to assure safe production of food products.

The Challenge

When the company started, each technician carried a clip board with the necessary account paperwork and daily route. Notes and services performed were hand written and invoicing was manual. All the paper was brought back to the office for data entry. Changes in regulations increased the documentation requirements and, as the company grew, the amount of paper created and stored also increased.

GRA Saves Big on Audit Automation Time with the Intermec CN3 and CN70

Posted August 20, 2013

2013-08-20_0924Gleason Research Associates, Inc. (GRA) is a veteran-owned small business providing specialized products and services to support the warfighter. GRA was founded in 1982 with the vision of conducting engineering and scientific analyses and evaluations related to missile and sensor systems. Over the years, GRA has successfully built on that strong foundation by expanding its areas of expertise from sensors, guidance, and control into special programs, modeling and simulation, training, inventory management, and program support.

In the early 1990s, GRA identified challenges in their manual system of tracking government property. They quickly found that attempting to keep track of Sub and Temporary Hand Receipts manually – and accurately – was nearly impossible. Using a paper and pencil to perform inventories also proved to be a time intensive process that resulted in a high number of errors. For these reasons, GRA looked to automate and reduce the time required to conduct inventories and increase accuracy of property transactions. As a result, GRA’s proprietary software, Auto Scan Tracking System (ASTS) software was born.
