World’s leading sesame seed manufacturer improves logistics efficiency – with zero failures in data entry – after syncing Xplore R12 tablet with Entersoft ERP in warehouses
AUSTIN, Texas - October 4, 2017 - Xplore Technologies Corp. (NASDAQ: XPLR) today announced that Haitoglou Bros SA has mobilized its warehouse operations using Xplore’s secure R12 rugged tablet solution. The 12.5” Intel-powered mobile computers are enabling warehouse personnel to receive and place orders in real time using data being submitted and distributed up-to-the-minute via the connected Entersoft ERP software.
The R12s are also mounted on the forklifts to provide specific order picking guidance to drivers, who then use the tablets’ built-in barcode scanners to confirm accurate inventory selection. External label printers are plugged in via the tablets’ I/O ports to conduct shipment labeling tasks in real-time. The R12 Windows® rugged tablet also features a built-in camera, digital pen, and touchscreen that make stock inspection and reporting much easier and much more accurate.
“As the leading processor and supplier of sesame seeds and sesame related articles worldwide, Haitoglou Bros SA needed a way to deliver a highly-responsive customer service experience and coordinate inventory and distribution logistics among both workers and supply chain partners,” noted Mark Holleran, president and CEO of Xplore. “The Xplore rugged tablet solution does just that by facilitating real-time data distribution and completely synchronized reporting inputs across all systems. In fact, this continuous access to accurate and actionable data has enabled the manufacturer to make real-time adjustments to production levels and reduce lead times for shipment of processed goods.”
Since introducing the Xplore R12 rugged tablets in its warehouse facilities, Haitoglou has begun monitoring all activity-specific information input by workers on the warehouse floor – regardless of actual location – in real time. This has allowed them to make more clinical observations about current operational efficiencies and challenges and enabled them to make real-time decisions and resource allocations to improve workflow productivity right then and there. Haitoglou has also gained the ability to re-arrange daily and longer-term warehouse goals and re-define warehouse operating procedures with clear “how to” instructions that workers can follow. The implementation of mobility-powered processes has led to significant cost savings and faster job completion. In fact, all of the activities that take place “in the field,” away from the traditional office environment, can now be completed 50 percent faster – and with zero failures in data entry – thanks to workers’ complete system accessibility.
