Mobile computing problems in the warehouse can place undue stress on employees and operations. Whether it’s connectivity or ergonomic issues, mobile technology in the warehouse can quickly hinder productivity rather than help employees work more efficiently when not strategically planned out.
Mueller® Co. – North America’s largest supplier of products used in the distribution of potable water – was experiencing some of those issues with its existing computing system in its Chattanooga plant and warehouse. Employees reported problems in transporting data, Wi-Fi connectivity and updating inventory.
A supplier of potable water distribution products from brass fittings to fire hydrants, Mueller® is known for superior product quality and service that reduces costs for their customers, help- ing them operate their businesses more efficiently. To uphold this reputation, Mueller® set a goal to improve its own operational efficiency in its Chattanooga location.
