Utilizing automated warehouse management solutions; Scanco maximizes efficiency and increases the productivity of manufacturing and warehouse organizations
XScan 100—a platform to incorporate work order automation in iOS and Android devices provide complete real-time data. “The real-time data enables the auditor of an organization to determine what’s in a warehouse, the value of inventory at any given time,” asserts Tess Boros, Co-partner, Scanco. With the integrated barcode solutions in the ERP system, Scanco provides the auditors the update they need to reduce the physical count. The ERP system recognizes all of the device activity and keeps track of every work order transaction through the device. The firm provides a real-time dashboard for customers to understand the procedure carried out in the warehouse manufacturing floor—what are the manufacturing products, when goods come in the inventory, or when the shipments take place.
A fine example of the company’s operational success shines through in the way it managed to handle the shipment struggle of a distribution company. The distribution company handled 900 shipments a week without automation leading numerous manual errors. Scanco not only reduced the physical count and delivered 100 percent accurate level of inventory but cut down the time taken by manual labor by 50 percent and eliminated human errors.
Moving forward, the organization looks to continue to deliver its products in alignment with technology advancements such as IoT and Industry 4.0 trends in manufacturing and distribution industries. Building on their extensive 28 plus years of experience in the distribution and manufacturing industry, Scanco plans to launch a Professional Sources Group, that will help startups in the online retail sector understand the initial framework and benefits of how mobile automation solutions can help them achieve more revenue and streamline operations.
In keeping up with the Industry 4.0 technology trends, they aim to incorporate voice technology to all of its applications across the board. Scanco believes in providing more information to the warehouse managers and manufacturing supervisors so they can take appropriate decisions in implementing their operations.Being proactive and implementing best inventory management practices, Scanco strives to be a customer-driven enterprise.
