Barcoding Completes a Warehouse System Upgrade

Originally published November 10, 2005

Barcoding, a provider of data-capture solutions, recently announced that it has completed a major warehouse information technology upgrade at American Mills, the Atlanta-based manufacturer of pillows, table linens, quilts, comforters and various home textile products for major retail stores and gift shops. Using Stay-Linked software Barcoding was able to interface wireless PSC mobile computers with legacy enterprise resource planning (ERP) software running on American Mill's IBM AS400 iSeries host-computing platform. The new mobile computers will allow American Mills to keep tighter control over inventory by giving management a real-time view of resource allocation, thereby improving profitability and customer service.

American Mills asked Barcoding to design a warehouse system upgrade that would increase the accuracy of inventory counts, reduce over-stocking of items, and minimize stock-outs. After evaluating American Mills systems and determining the project requirements, Barcoding recommended and supplied PSC Falcon 345 wireless terminals running Stay-Linked thin-client terminal emulation and session management software which included advanced technology for providing enhanced, real-time support capabilities for their wireless users.

In just six weeks from the initial visit to complete installation, Barcoding was able to implement a complete hybrid emulation system, while protecting American Mills software investment by running legacy inventory applications on new, PSC handheld computers. The system provides reliable host-based preservation of wireless user application screens/sessions, centralized wireless session/device configuration, monitoring, and control, along with secure end-to-end wireless data transmission between clients and the application host.
