Parkway Tech Solved This Meat Packing Company’s Technology Problems

Any issue with your business’ technology can quickly affect overall productivity. Whether it’s a slow computer or a faulty device, if it’s necessary for your staff’s daily work, it needs to function properly.

If it doesn’t, it’s causing downtime. The economy of downtime is unforgiving – it grinds your business to a halt, racks up expenses, and keeps you from getting anything done.

That was the case for one of our clients, which is why they first got in touch with us…

This Meat Packing Company Was Encountering Issues With Their Handheld Scanners

As a meat packing company, a lot of this client’s operations revolve around the management of its inventory. They need to know how much product they have in refrigerated storage, how long it’s been stored for, and when and to where it needs to be shipped out.

In order to manage their extensive inventory effectively, this meat packing company recently invested in handheld scanners. These networked devices were supposed to make it easier for their staff to manage the inventory, automatically gathering and collating data from scanned barcodes on each product.

Unfortunately, the devices didn’t work as expected. Issues with the scanners slowed down their operations and affected employee productivity.

This is more common than you might think — smart devices can be convenient, but only when they work properly. Issues like these crop up often in the business world. After all, did you know that there will be 35.82 billion smart devices installed worldwide by 2021 and 75.44 billion by 2025?

This issue was so detrimental to this meat packing company’s productivity that they sought expert assistance — that’s why they got in touch with Parkway Tech.
