Mobile solutions are opening new doors for manufacturers and companies in general. With the boom of tablet devices and their incredible ease-of-use, mobile solutions are a quick and effective way to improve your operations. Mostly everyone knows how to use them and let’s face it, the novelty of the item makes it fun!
But how can
- Shop Floor Visibility and Control: Mobile scanning devices seamlessly integrated with your ERP solution make it possible to gain real-time insight into all shop floor activities, putting you in more control. More control results in less error and streamlines overall processes because you can easily see what works and what doesn’t. Let’s say there’s a stocking issue on the shop floor and the employee doesn’t have the training to resolve it. With a mobile scanning device, this issue can be escalated to the appropriate manager in real-time so that the issue doesn’t affect or stop overall operations. This insight keeps productivity high and reduces problems that often result from small issues.
- Asset and Inventory Tracking: Communication across departments is key to streamlining incoming orders and outgoing shipments.
Whether you have a smart phone or tablet, you’ve joined the mobile revolution. The next step is bringing your manufacturing company into the next generation with optimal functionality and real-time insight that can put you one step ahead of the rest.
