Oil Industry Leader Edges Out Their Inventory Control

Oil Industry Leader Edges Out Their Inventory ControlOil Industry Leader Edges Out Their Inventory Control

Large industry leaders pioneer the way for innovative practices, strategies and services. An oil leader, based in Houston, Texas, competes in a tight oil market by consistently assessing innovative designs and services. Despite their obvious successes, there is always a place to develop a competitive edge, or increase internal productivity.

To curb expenses, the company’s integral IT Department decided it was time to invest in necessary inventory software to improve the department’s productivity. Currently, the IT Department houses a warehouse on a large complex, where thousands of machines, computers/laptops, mice, keyboards, and headsets are stored and distributed. The department came to EMS Barcode Solutions looking for a simple and user-friendly solution that could implement to augment an unsatisfactory internal system.

Current Inventory System and The Problems

The internal system in place was a simple excel spreadsheet, which at the time, fed into a program equipped to do a simple update and inventory count. Despite the simplicity, users complained of slow update times, inaccurate counts, and lack of information of the items, such as location or serial number. And often, the users found that they would not have enough inventory to distribute items to necessary sites.

Software and existing scanners
They had several bluetooth scanners and some thermal label printers in place, and were happy to know they could use those with the new software; but they also wanted the mobility of having a hand-held device, for instant updates on items as they arrived. This was a good feature to spotlight, as users can pull an audit in a swift amount of time.

Remoteness
Nowadays, individuals are on the move and rely heavily on hand-held smartphones to stay in the loop. The Wasp software allows tech-savvy individuals to check inventory in-and-out on a local computer, a remote laptop, or any mobile device. Additionally, the program’s on-the-go features is appealing to the new professional, who is not always tied to a desk.

EMS set up the Professional version of the software, as the initial platform; however they are looking to expand to Enterprise because of its ability to cover several lots on their complex.

Introducing GSS-MOBILE-3: A NEW Edition to the Global Shop Certified Barcode Scanners Family

For years we’ve been helping Global Shop Solutions customers automate their warehouses and manufacturing facilities with rugged barcode scanners, printers and media. Whether you need to scan a barcode on a clipboard from a few inches away or scan a pallet 50 feet away, we have you covered.

We’re excited to announce a new addition to the Global Shop Solutions certified family of barcode scanners (available July 18) which fits a special niche between the GSS-MOBILE-1 and GSS-MOBILE-2 scanners: The GSS-MOBILE-3.

 

GSS-MOBILE-3 Pistol-grip attachment, optional Docking station/charger, included 4-slot battery charger, optional

 

This rugged Android touch computer is designed for transportation, field mobility and government applications. It has the same form factor as the GSS-MOBILE-2 but it’s more rugged and has a barcode read range of up to 10 feet (compared to the GSS-MOBILE-2’s 15-inches-read-range). Plus, the GSS-MOBILE-3 features a pistol-grip attachment option (like the GSS-MOBILE-1). If you need to scan barcodes on shelving that’s just out of reach, this is a much better option than climbing a ladder with a GSS-MOBILE-2 and leaning toward the pallet.

Each GSS-MOBILE device is backed by our 3-year warranty and includes an extra battery and a charging and communication cradle. Additional accessories are available, too, including a 4-slot battery charger and a snap-on micro-USB cable.

Don’t Take Our Word for It—Try it Out! It’s not always clear which kind of barcode scanner is the best fit for your users and work environment. As an EMS Barcode Solutions partner, you don’t need to guess. We offer free demo equipment and 30-day trials for everything we sell. Not only that, but we provide you with various types of test barcode labels (with magnetic backings) that you can place in your work environment to give your employees a realistic feel for how everything works — without having to install any software or configure any equipment.

Contact your EMS Barcode account manager today at 972-535-5555, ext. 1204 to request a demo of the GSS-MOBILE-3 and see for yourself if this is what you’ve been missing. Also, check out our eBook to see all the Global Shop Solutions certified solutions we offer: https://www.emsbarcode.com/gss.
