Superior Solutions. Proven Results.
Naughty or Nice, Your Workforce Needs
the Efficiency of a Total Solution. 
When it comes to inventory management, it’s critical to have the right system in place to manage all the information you need to track, analyze and fulfill orders for the business. If bottlenecks are putting a damper on your holiday spirit, then consider these tips in this month’s blog:

A Moment of Nostalgia – History of the Barcode 
We miss the days before barcoding….said no one, ever. Until the development of barcode technology, things were chaotic! Lost shipments, missing inventory, money unnecessarily spent on material we thought we needed but realized we didn’t? We are grateful for this technology and thought it would be a good time to share this article from Smithsonian Magazine with you on the history of the barcode.

We would also like to pay our respects to George Laurer, inventor of the UPC, who passed away December 5, 2019 at the age of 94 in Raleigh, NC. 

Counting Down to 2020!
Yes, the New Year is right around the corner, but we’re talking about the countdown to Microsoft’s EOL on extended support for their mobile device OS. There are a number of reasons why it’s time to start thinking about updating your technology, but here are our top 3:

  • Device Security – The end of support means no more patches or updates, which could leave your devices vulnerable to security risks.
  • Android OS – Familiarity with the interface and open-platform makes migration a bit easier to manage.
  • Dual OS Devices – If you’re not quite ready to make the shift from Windows to Android, Honeywell offers devices with both operating systems; this means you can migrate on your own terms.

 You can read more about the changes coming and how to approach in our previous blog.
