How Barcodes & Honeywell Technology Helped Transform Warehouse Operations

Posted December 13, 2023

Coconut oil and tropical leaves. Hair care spa concept.

Transforming warehouse operations with barcode technology increases efficiency, throughput, and cost-effectiveness. However, businesses that have always relied on manual processes may need to learn the steps to ensure their tech investments lead to value and ROI. Barcodes, Inc. provides the guidance and expertise necessary for successful warehouse transformation.

The project at Monat Global Corp. is an excellent example of how proper barcode technology implementation can improve operations and position a business for greater success. This direct sales haircare, skincare, and wellness product company was 100% manual, even relying on employees to build boxes. However, putaway and picking were also manual. Employees memorized product locations in the warehouse and jotted down the quantities they needed to fill orders, an inefficient and sometimes error-prone process.

Steps to Warehouse Transformation

Barcodes, Inc. and its partner Alpine Supply Chain Solutions worked with Monat to implement barcode technology with dramatic results.

Step one was creating a naming structure that worked with Monat’s SAP Extended Warehouse Management (EWM) system.

Then Barcodes, Inc. generated labels in batches for warehouse racking so Monat could save time and apply the labels systematically.

With labels in place, Monat relied on Barcodes, Inc.’s expertise to test mobile devices and barcode scanners to select the best options for the warehouse. Monat chose Honeywell CK65 mobile devices and Granit XP 1990iXR corded scanners. The solution also included Honeywell vehicle-mounted computers and industrial printers.

The technology allowed Monat’s team to no longer memorize product locations or depend on handwritten notes. They now use modern processes, such as directed putaway, triggered replenishment, and triggered case picking.

See Monat’s Digital Transformation in Action

The Advantages of a Modern Warehouse with Barcode Technology

Monat monitored key performance indicators before and after the transition and found that using barcode technology significantly impacted its overall operation. Monat’s warehouse increased from 80 to 260 lines per hour and from 20 to 60 orders per hour, tripling throughput.

The company also saw a vast improvement in order accuracy and decreased the time necessary to train new employees to work independently from days to just an hour.

A Rugged Smartphone to Rule Them All: Samsung Galaxy XCover6 Pro Hands-On

Posted December 11, 2023
samsung galaxy xcover6 pro

Our focus today is on an unconventional smartphone for the enterprise, namely the Samsung Galaxy XCover6 Pro.

The latest rugged model from Samsung is identified as an Enterprise Edition, signifying its appropriateness for corporate usage, especially by employees working in warehouse or industrial environments. The XCover 6 Pro also caters to individuals seeking a robust phone for sports activities or challenging situations.

The base product box includes a USB-C to USB-C cable, while the XCover 6 Pro itself is presented encased in plastic, showcasing its impressive display, light form factor, and thin, yet rugged design.

The XCover 6 Pro possesses a unique design with a singular black color option, complemented by glossy red rings encircling the camera lens and red accents on the top and X Cover key.

Despite common stereotypes about rugged phones lacking aesthetic appeal, the XCover 6 Pro challenges these preconceptions with its harmonious black and red color scheme.

Another characteristic that stands out immediately is the XCover 6 Pro’s distinct tactile surface, reminiscent of rubber which feels softer than a typical consumer smartphone body. This characteristic imparts a sense of additional protection, akin to the phone already being encased in a protective covering.

The detachable battery is also a a clear giveaway that you are looking at a rugged smartphone meant for commercial use.

The exterior of the phone boasts a LED indicator on the top, a volume rocker with a power button on one side, an XCover key on the other side, and a USB-C port with a pogo pin at the bottom, allowing for charging via a docking station. Rounding out the exterior is the power button with an integrated fingerprint sensor for an additional layer of security.

Upon opening the phone to insert the battery, access is granted to the SIM and SD card slots, with a rubber lining on the back cover designed to prevent water intrusion.

The display is slightly smaller than the phone’s overall size, featuring a vibrant LCD screen with a 120 Hz refresh rate. Regarding protective gloves, the touchscreen display is more responsive than anticipated.

After several days of usage, the XCover 6 Pro has the expected weight of a handheld mobile computer, but ultimately feels lighter than expected. Its secure grip and touchscreen round out a thoughtfully designed device for workers on overtime shifts who are scanning and communicating constantly.

To see the rugged smartphone in action and see a full list of detailed technical specifications, have a look at our previous XCover 6 Pro coverage.
