Case Study: British American Tobacco: Increasing productivity and reducing errors

Posted January 13, 2016

British American Tobacco (BAT) is the market leader in the Romanian tobacco industry. Operations began, as a local affiliate, in 1994 and BAT Romania was founded as a domestic business entity in 1996. Local production began at the company’s Ploiesti factory in 1997. The factory now employs more than 500 staff and produces brands including Kent, Lucky Strike, Pall Mall, Dunhill, Vogue, Viceroy and Rothmans for both local and international markets.

The company’s sales agents had previously been using a range of dot matrix printers for printing all required documents to carry out their daily engagement with customers. However, poor printer performance, costly printer consumables, printer size and issues related to limited connectivity led to BAT looking for a new solution to ensure that their sales agents’ productivity levels were improved. They looked to upgrade to a printer that could withstand the rigours of the field sales environment and that could grow with them in the future.

When Time is Money – It Adds Up

Posted June 2, 2015

cdfWhen choosing a mobile computer or barcode scanner, one of the last things on anybody’s mind is what kind of battery I should buy with my device. Even worse, sellers fail to explain how the battery alone can save a company on time, money and productivity.

Research shows that companies lose at least 20 minutes of productivity every time a battery is changed mid-shift. Here’s an example of what device downtime can cost:

  • 500 devices in operation
  • 500 devices x 1 battery failure each = 500 mid-shift failures per day
  • 500 mid-shift failures x 20 minutes each = 167 hours lost each day
  • 167 hours/day x $9.00/hour = $1,503.00 per day
  • $1,503.00 x 360 days = $541,080 PER YEAR in lost productivity

 

Don’t take chances with your batteries – IPT Productivity+ Series batteries run 15% – 20% longer and guarantee 100% compatibility with OEM devices including Symbol, Zebra, Motorola, Honeywell, Intermec, LXE, Datamax-O’Neil and Vocollect.

Driver Vehicle Inspection Reporting for Private Fleets: Pitfalls and Opportunities

Posted March 2, 2015

2015-02-27_1645As time marches on, many of the influences on our businesses change as well. This change alone is a great reason to frequently review your operations and make sure you are employing the very best practices in every facet of your business operations. In a recent research study conducted by Vanson Bourne trucking professionals reported that only 61% of their companies had conducted any type of process re-engineering effort in the previous 12 months. That leaves 39% of transportation operations as a whole (33% of private fleets and 53% of for-hire operations) that have not made a focused effort to innovate and improve their operational processes.

When you contrast that static approach to business against constantly evolving regulatory requirements, you have an obvious disconnect. For example, let’s take a topic like commercial vehicle inspections. All commercial fleets perform them since they are required by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA) initiative1 . Yet, how many companies execute these inspections and reports in a manner that not only improves the fleet’s Vehicle Maintenance BASIC score, but also improves the efficiency of the operation, positively impacting everything from driver performance to customer satisfaction?

Honeywell’s New Version of HTML5 Browser

Posted December 29, 2014

VoicesFromTheHTML5TrenchesHoneywell has updated several of their mobile computers with the new version of HTML5 Browser which can be downloaded for existing units and will currently be provided on new devices.

HTML5 Browser allows cross-platform applications that have been developed using HTML5 technology to run on a wide range of Honeywell mobile computers. This capability provides two major advantages to Honeywell and to our software development
partners:

  • The HTML5 capability allows Honeywell mobile computers to be sold into applications where they have not previously been able to operate. This includes applications that are written primarily to run on consumer-grade smartphones, but where those smartphones are proving to be too fragile
  • The HTML5 capability provides software developers a path forward in this time of operating system road map uncertainty. As vendors of rugged mobile devices evaluate alternate operating systems, software vendors are left to wonder how to develop for the next generation of hardware. HTML5 offers one path forward that insulates them from these uncertainties.
