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.
