Case Studies - Worldwide Manufacturer

WMSProblem

A Worldwide Manufacturer had several challenges in improving their distribution of products. They needed data collection devices that would work with their current IBM and CISCO network. The problem was magnified by the requirement of the use and support of the equipment internationally. The first installation was in Japan.

Solution

Miles Technologies was asked for a solution. After several meetings with the technical and warehouse management teams, Miles recommended an international supplier who could provide worldwide service and support. Another consideration was that the device manufacturer had to have a technical staff, Windows CE products, and a commitment to CISCO PEAP connectivity. They selected Intermec Vehicle Mounted Terminals and Handheld Terminals. Special software was integrated to address some of the connectivity and country (Japan) issues.
