Posted March 17, 2010

IDG Tools Datalogic Kyman

The Swedish company Industriverktyg IDG Tools AB sells tools in a somewhat unique way. Driving around with exhibition buses in Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark, Poland and Italy, they display their product range and take orders using the Kyman™.

The company owns more than 80 buses and have an equal amount of sales people. Their offices and warehouse are situated near the airport in Stockholm, not far from the harbor where they ship their goods to Finland and Poland. Products to their Swedish and Norwegian customers are transported over night, and the orders are delivered to most of the addresses as soon as the day after the order is taken.

IDG Tools AB’s product range is made up almost solely of their own well-known trademark, IDG Tools® (Industrial Development Group). The company has an extensive product range, most of which can be found on exhibition buses.

Datalogic Mobile’s Kyman™ in the warehouse

IDG Tools uses the mobile computer Kyman™ from Datalogic Mobile in their warehouse and has done so for about a year. The warehouse consists of 4000-4500 items and 6500 places for pallets. Kyman™ is used to make the picking procedure more effective and simpler. Previously, they used a mobile computer of another brand, which they had to replace since it did not meet their needs. The reason they chose Kyman™ was due to a recommendation by Sundit – the supplier of their ERP system. IDG Tools gave a list of requirements to Sundit; their main requirements being flexibility, color screen and reliable on-line communication. Sundit then turned to Datalogic Mobile Partner, for the right product. Datalogic Mobile’s Kyman™ filled these needs. In addition, it is ergonomic, suits the hand, has a sharp screen and is very fast. For all of these reasons, IDG has been very satisfied with their choice.

Hilti’s New Tracking System Saves Time and Increases Accuracy

Posted December 23, 2009

Datalogic PowerScan M8300The Challenge
After considering the use of a bar code system for many years, Hilti finally decided to take the plunge when the company introduced its new business system, SAP. Though there were many reasons for investing in this system, Lasse Liffner, Hilti’s service manager, stated, “the primary reason we wanted to introduce bar code technology is for the high level of accuracy, which is vital to our business.”

Bar code technology was the right answer for Hilti due to the sheer volume of service repairs the company completes annually. Hilti performs about 30,000 services/repairs per year and the entire repair process from receipt of complaint to customer delivery generally takes only three days. Therefore, it was critical for Hilti to utilize a bar code system that was capable of handling their fast pace and improve their processes.

The Solution
Hilti chose a Datalogic solution consisting of bar code readers and mobile computers. The bar code system would be used in the service center, where the system would track the product through its different phases of repair. They selected Datalogic scanning’s Powerscan PM8300 reader for its cordless capabilities and its display which indicates a Good Read confirmation. Lasse stated, “We also chose this particular scanner because of its durability. It is at home in rugged environments and has even fallen to the floor many times without breaking.”
