Inventory Control System-Hardwood Floor Manufacturer
Inventory Control System-Hardwood Floor Manufacturer Overview:
Today’s client is a manufacturer of hardwood floor paneling. They have multiple warehouses that receive in raw materials that are then assembled into their finished product before being shipped out to the customer.
Pen and paper tracking is time consuming:
Currently all tracking was being done by pen and paper, then was uploaded to Excel by a single individual. This was becoming increasingly time consuming for them, and they felt they could better allocate working time during the day if they had a more automated system for receiving, tracking, and shipping their inventory.
The Wasp Inventory Control Solution:
The client had already done extensive research on several solutions and had decided that Wasp Inventory Control was likely their best bet. They reached out to us in order to see more about the product, ask specific questions, and put to rest any final concerns they had about the software being the right fit. Through the course of our demonstration and conversations we were able to determine that Wasp Inventory Control would be able to easily aid them in their tracking and automation needs. However, they had some very specific hardware requirements that we unfortunately could not fit with
the current Wasp hardware line.
We were able to go through several other manufacturers, exploring different options before finally making a recommendation on the CipherLab 9700. This unit would provide the rugged and industrial mobile scanning the client needed, with the added feature of an extended range scanner. The client needed his employees on forklifts to hit barcodes up to 10 feet away.

Our experience with this client highlighted what we at EMS Barcode Solutions do best. We were able to not only provide assurance to the client that the research they had done was valid and accurate, but we were able to go the extra mile and piece together a software/hardware solution from various sources into one package that would fit their niche needs.

One of the many reasons I enjoy and believe in what we do at EMS Barcode Solutions is the sheer number of applications where asset and inventory tracking applies. Just about every company that exists has either got internal inventory, valuable assets to track, or both. Our client today was a fellow software company in need of tracking their IT equipment, office furniture, and anything that gets assigned to their workers.
Today’s demonstration was hosted for a northeastern fleet contracting company with a serious need for improved inventory tracking capabilities. My client’s job is to manage a fleet of vehicles with parts that are deployed to job sites where inventory is used to complete service orders per customer request. When we first spoke, my client informed me that they are currently using Excel sheets to track inventory (like so many companies still do) but it was creating several issues. Read more…
