Is There a ‘Wolf’ Feeding On Your Warehouse?

You’ve heard the story. Big wolf. Little pigs. Three houses. Guess what? They were Warehouses for bricks, lumber, and yes—straw. The big bad wolf? That was inefficiency eating away at the bottom line. It was becoming a serious problem. They’d each taken it on the chinny-chin-chin and were huffing and puffing about improving profits. A much-needed equipment upgrade to go with their Warehouse Management System could do the trick. But what sort of mobile wireless solutions would help them optimize their bottom line and kick the wolf to the curb?

But that ended up costing as much or more in repairs and downtime because the work was “too hard” and the units were “too soft.” Then she discovered the KODIAK VMT, and it was just right…

Helping City Furniture Maintain Superior Efficiency

Modern Materials Handling Magazine published a piece about the durability of rugged computer terminals used by City Furniture, in Florida. Ricky Maharaj had this to say about the Everest E2000 CE systems they were using. “In a fast-paced, rugged environment, operations depend on equipment that is durable, able to sustain rough usage, and can maintain superior efficiency.” Glacier engineers worked with Ricky and the warehouse managers to customize a rugged hardware and software solution for their operation.  “The customer and supplier worked closely to design a customized interface on the new operating system, which works seamlessly with the existing warehouse management system (WMS). The interface reduces configuration, maintenance time, and the risk associated with moving to a new operating system.” Glacier and City Furniture continue to have regular conversations to maintain that fine-tuned success. And last month, City Furniture began adding Kodiak’s to their growing operation. Kodiak is Glacier Computer’s newest, 5th
