Vertical Industry Solutions

Warehousing

A typical warehouse data collection system includes barcode printers, barcode scanners (fork lift, handheld, and/or stationary), a wireless network consisting of one or more access points, a database to connect to, and a warehouse management system (WMS). Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) and Real-Time Locations Systems (RTLS) will become more and more common in warehouses that require their unique benefits, such as accuracy, efficiency, and productivity.

 

Manufacturing

Manufacturing systems usually include barcode printers, barcode scanners (handheld and stationary), a wireless network consisting of one or more access points, a database, and middleware software. Oftentimes there are time and attendance and work-in-process data that is collected, to track productivity.

 

Shipping and Receiving

Many shipping and receiving solutions include barcode printers, barcode scanners, a weight scale, a wireless network consisting of one or more access points, a database, and middleware. Automating the shipping and receiving processes will improve inventory visibility and productivity.

 

Education

The typical education solution consists of a wireless network whereby students and faculty can connect to internal networks and the Internet using a laptop or PDA. Many schools and universities are requiring entrants to bring a laptop. Older schools don't have to wire their buildings to install networks, and students can now be connected to the resources they need from anywhere on the campus.

 

Healthcare

Typically, hospitals, clinics, and pharmacies will utilize a wireless network and portable handheld devices to retrieve and update patient records, send messages in real-time to coworkers, and even provide their patients with wireless Internet access while in waiting areas as an added value. Barcodes are already being used in most of these environments on patient samples in the laboratories.

 

Retail

There are two categories of retail applications. First, the traditional scanning of inventory on shelves to determine inventory levels. The second area of interest is moving the point-of-sale away from cash registers, especially during busy periods. These installations typically require a wireless network, handhelds, and portable receipt printers. Transactions can be handled from anywhere within the wireless area.

 

Field Sales / Field Service

A field force can collect data while in the field, either transmitting it wirelessly via a cellular data network, or storing the data in the field and batch uploading it at the office. Signature capture is possible on most handheld devices, and real-time credit card authorization is common for these applications.

 

Route Accounting / Direct Store Delivery

How many loaves of bread are in stock at your favorite customer's store, and what was their sales trend for this same time last year? That kind of information is used to forecast future deliveries. Having access to current inventory levels, both at your customer's stores and your warehouse, you can provide a level of service that is exceptional. The information can be loaded into a handheld computer in the morning, and uploaded after the deliveries, or everything can be performed wirelessly.

 

Logistics

Do you have access to the real-time information you need to make educated logistics decisions? These solutions can apply to wide area cellular networks, and local area wireless networks. Oftentimes a GPS is utilized for tracking truck locations.
