Barcoding.co.uk has supplied specialist glass unit manufacturer Clayton Glass with with a wireless barcode inventory solution.
The efficiency boosting solution integrates fully with the manufacturer's specialist Lisec production software and enables Clayton Glass to keep its promises of on-time, in-full orders as well as control costs.
Productivity and efficiency have risen to new levels with the speed and accuracy the barcode system brings to the business. The warehouse staff are able to work quicker as all they need to do is scan the items straight into the system.
We are already saving in the region of 25,000 with the implementation of the wireless barcode system. We have gained speed, accuracy, real-time information, with a further benefit of comprehensive reporting, says Richard Teasdale (pictured), Controller and Systems Administrator, Clayton Glass.
The dominant theme of business at Clayton Glass is continuous improvement in on-time in-full orders, superior product quality and exemplary customer service.
Our warehouse contains vast numbers of products and we needed a simple way to ensure that when orders were put through to it we were able to pick the exact number of items, says Richard Teasdale. We have over 120 major customers. All of our clients demand that we remain true to our word of providing 'on-time in-full orders' and we do our uppermost to achieve these levels, he continues.
Barcoding.co.uk initially recommended Bluetooth scanners, but changing circumstances required the units to be upgraded to RF Datalogic Kyman scanners running over a wireless network utilising Proxim access points.
Using barcodes helps us in many ways. First, we reduce the amount of reliance we have on paper records, second we achieve faster and 100% accurate track and trace of products within our warehouse, and third by deciding to use a wireless system we are able to make the most of the mobility that the technology brings to the warehouse. No area of the warehouse need be excluded from scanning and so we are able to locate products regardless of where they are stored, says Richard Teasdale.
