IT Service Provider Gains Visibility Into Warehouse Logistics
Essintial Enterprise Solutions, a national provider of enterprise infrastructure services and support solutions for distributed technologies—from maintaining data servers to bank ATMs—has deployed a radio frequency identification solution to improve inventory control throughout its logistics processes. Parts at the company's central stocking warehouse were tracked manually through its enterprise resource planning system. Several warehouse workers were responsible for updating the inventory location as parts moved through the various stages of the warehouse and depot repair processes, leading to inaccuracies due to the manual process. Currently, Essintial uses RFID to track all parts within the warehouse, including good parts from vendors, consigned inventory from customers, and defective and repaired parts. Learn how RFID has increased accuracy and visibility for the firm, while also lowering labor costs and improving efficiency.
