Our client’s parts and project teams produced large purchase orders on a daily basis in order to procure product for inventory and jobs. These processes required significant data entry and were sometimes error prone. Nobious worked with the team to create a web-based version of their ERP purchase order form. We also created a custom mobile application that was installed on smart barcode scanners so product could be added to an order by scanning a company barcode, distributor code, or manufacturer’s UPC code. The system is integrated tightly with their ERP system and data is synced automatically. Now any authorized user can more quickly create a PO without the need to have access to, or a license for, the company’s ERP system.
Our client’s parts department needed a way for employees to quickly enter work orders and order parts. Their ERP system (Viewpoint) required an expensive new subscription in order to give access to their mechanics, technicians and other members of the field team. Instead of paying these high fees forever they decided to build a solution themselves. They engaged Nobious and we built a custom web and mobile based add-on that tightly integrated with their ERP system. Now mechanics can order parts using their phone from the site of the break down, warehouse teams can scan any barcode, and they have no monthly fees since they own the software.
Our client manages several large warehouses which store parts and inventory for their fleet of large construction, hauling, and road building equipment. Their ERP system tracked this inventory but required significant manually entered data and very little automation. They contacted Nobious and we worked with them to design more automated processes to track inventory in and out of their warehouses. Our solution managed orders, order receipts, equipment servicing, and regular inventory count processes. The software also introduced barcode scanning technology into the process and included a custom mobile application built only for our client, that ran directly on the scanners and integrated with the central system. Now data input is automated through the use of barcode scanners to order and receive product and inventory counts are significantly more accurate, potentially saving the company millions of dollars annually. Now the client is considering how the technology we built for them might also be used to track equipment usage. View the case study here: Viewpoint …
Every year our client’s parts management team arrived at the warehouse between Christmas and New Years to complete the annual inventory count. They started with a huge, printed parts list and manually counted each part one by one using paper and pencil. This meant the team had to work extra during the holidays. Also, inventory was only being corrected once a year. They needed a better way to track inventory, so they engaged Nobious to develop an inventory counting solution that used barcode scanners and intelligent count scheduling. Now they can schedule the frequency of inventory counts by warehouse, shelf or individual part number. The solution integrates tightly with their Viewpoint ERP system. Inventory counts are now much more accurate, saving them up to a million dollars in inventory counts per year.
Our client built a 122,500 square foot warehouse to store inventory for their customers. They needed a way to track product coming in and out of the warehouse. The solution also needed to automate billing. They looked at pre-packaged warehouse solutions but they were expensive, required significant configuration and setup, and didn’t manage billing. They worked with Nobious to build a system customized specifically for their business. The new Inventory Management System allowed warehouse employees to identify the exact location of any product in real-time. Using advanced barcoding technologies, the system tracks all loads coming in and going out while fully automating the monthly billing process. Now the small warehouse team can easily manage up to 16,000 pallets at any given time.
A 50 year old agricultural product manufacturing company was in need of a better way to manage their campus-wide inventory of palleted dry raw materials and finished goods, as well as similar bulked tanked materials. They wanted to be able to track inventory by lot number and location in real time using industry standard barcode scanning hardware and software. Their internet search failed to find an appropriate solution that met all their needs. They partnered with Nobious to develop a custom solution that did exactly what they needed within the price point they had budgeted. Their new Nobious built system now tracks everything coming into or going out of their 35 building campus, including inventory moved on container trucks, tank trucks and rail cars. The new system also tracks many compliance processes such as tank trailer seals, chemical product compatibility, trailer inspection processes and more. Now the client know where everything is within any building on campus as any time.
A 50 year old agricultural product manufacturing company was in need of a better way to track the consumption of raw materials going into their manufacturing processes as well as the production of finished goods coming off of the line. They wanted this process to be streamlined and managed primarily through the use of mobile handheld computers equipped with infrared barcode scanning capabilities. Nothing on the market seemed to directly address their business needs without significant customization. They partnered with Nobious for a custom built solution. The Nobious team worked with their manufacturing team to fully understand their existing processes and then design a solution optimized for that process. All aspects of manufacturing inventory tracking were considered, including recipes for the addition of ingredients, quality control features, scanning of inventory to a batch, lot management, scanning of new finished product to inventory, as well as metrics tracking and reporting. The new system eliminates multiple paper-based processes for the production teams and …
