Poundland Modernizes Warehouse Operations with Xplore Tablet Technology

Poundland is Europe’s largest single price discount retailer and winner  of the 2013 Grocer Gold’s Discount Retailer of the Year Awards. It has  485 branches nationwide and serves 4.5 million customers every  week. 

In order to boost productivity and realize substantial cost savings,  Poundland turned to Xplore partner Box Technologies to replace  their legacy system with a mobile technology solution built around  the Motion F5 by Xplore Tablet PC. 

With an integrated camera, digitizer pen and barcode  scanner, the Motion F5 by Xplore now does the job  of the previous four separate pieces of hardware.  Improved  battery  life  has  led  to  an  increase  in   productivity as warehouse personnel use the tablet’s  hot-swap battery feature to easily replace an existing  battery with a charged battery. This all occurs on the  warehouse floor while the Tablet is operating, with no  need to shut down or standby.
