Barcoding, Inc. President Shane Snyder Featured in DC Velocity Article on Windows End-of-Support
#SupplyChainGeek and Barcoding, Inc. President, Shane Snyder, was recently featured in an article for DC Velocity. The article discusses how to know when it’s time to trade-in your organization’s mobile devices.
As Windows End-of-Life approaches, many businesses are switching to Android operating systems. The replacement process can be complicated, but there are definitely some strategies to consider. First, is that new technology means that some devices can now carry out more than one function, and integrated systems mean that one replacement can create a wave of change. Networks are another important consideration. Some carriers will no longer be supporting 3G devices by the end of 2020, so it’s necessary to give thought to how your network will be a factor.
No matter which devices or networks you choose, perhaps the most essential component is to have a plan. In the article, Shane explains how having a solid transition plan can create opportunities that not only replace old devices, but help you select new ones that improve your workflow and solve existing problems.
Before you move forward with new investments, try conducting a complete inventory of existing devices and check with your operations team to make sure current units are all in use. It can also be helpful to have end-users involved in the selection and implementation process, like by having users test out the new devices before rollout.
Having up-to-date devices can help you be efficient, accurate, and connected. Contact us for solutions that work for you.
