Posted May 22, 2019

Janam XG3 rugged mobile computer can improve visibility in your workflow.

American Nutrition Implements Barcode Scanning & Mobile Computing Solution that Markedly Increases Productivity and Efficiency

Application: Barcode Scanning & Mobile Computing Solution

Executive Summary

American Nutrition, a leading manufacturer of pet food and treats for branded companies and retailers. In search to simplify their workflow, they want to find a warehouse management solution (WMS) to track their products across their three facilities . Barcodes identified an optimal barcode scanning and mobile computing solution, the Janam XG3-ER rugged mobile computer, that provided a solution to connect their existing lot tracking, process control, and shipping software under one management platform.  By utilizing the Janam XG-ER our customers increased visibility into inventory and process control, enhanced employee productivity, and run their proprietary WMS on an Android operating system.

The Business Challenge

Warehouse employees need access to secure information right away. The current method of relying on their memory to keep track of the products’ physical location in the warehouse was not working. It was taking workers too long to access the data they needed to perform their jobs effectively and efficiently. There were also issues with the human memory error that slowed down processes. To address these concerns, American Nutrition would need to invest in a barcode scanning and mobile computing solution capable of providing workers with inventory and product information in real time. They needed solution that can scan pallets stored on top level racks, accept both touch screen data and keyed data, as well as have an open operating system to future proof their business.  Investing in this solution would allow the manufacturer employees to work more efficiently and eliminate the human error associated with memorizing product and inventory information.

Solution

Barcodes recommended the Janam XG3 Rugged Mobile Computer. The Janam XG3 provides a warehouse ready rugged mobile scanner, with a scan range of 15 inches to 50 feet, touch screen and 57-key keypad for data entry. In addition, the XG3 has the ability to run their proprietary WMS on an Android operating system. This allowed American Nutrition to manage and track all items in an effective and efficient manner and add a new layer of accountability to their process.

Benefits

Barcodes deployed forty-five Janam XG3s in three US facilities in a short amount of time. American Nutrition’s business expectations continue to be met and exceeded. Not only do employees know where all their inventory is from receiving raw goods to shipping finished product, but they have seen measurable increases in productivity and efficiency. In addition, they have eliminated the human error associated with memorizing inventory information.

Contact Barcodes, if you have any questions or need a warehouse solution. We can find a solution that fits your business needs and budget.
