We had the pleasure of working with one of the largest midstream energy companies in North America today. They approached us seeking help in finding a better way to track their parts inventory across three divisions of the company housed under a single roof.
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.
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.
