Barcoding helped to achieve tremendous efficiency for HumanWare

The Company:

HumanWare’s products are having a profoundly positive impact on the lives of people who are blind or have low vision, and individuals with learning disabilities. They provide the tools that empower them to live independently and compete effectively in a sighted world.

The Need:

HumanWare were at breaking point with their old system and they needed a system that would grow with them.

  • A system was required that would deal with a higher volume of orders.
  • Productivity needed to increase significantly.

The Solution:

A barcoding solution was installed, which allowed HumanWare to take on 30 new European Distributors.

  • The introduction of barcoding allowed orders to be picked in minutes. A process which had taken days under the old system.
  • MJM’s stock control module has brought greater efficiency and shows up any discrepancies immediately.
  • The Bridge software now allows picking lists, delivery notes and invoices to be processed in seconds rather than days.
“Through the partnership of Pegasus Opera II and our Solutions Marketplace provider, MJM, we have seen a return on our investment in less than a year and we have found the barcoding solution to be exceptional.”
