Addressing Gaps in the Supply Chain
The COVID-19 pandemic has undoubtedly uncovered gaps in our industry, but this can be an opportunity to learn from the situation and find out how to strengthen our supply chains, people and processes. Common pain points that companies are facing often boil down to mobility and connectivity issues. Without the ability to properly communicate, the mobile workforce is unable to operate efficiently.

“When there are gaps in communication between the front-line mobile workers and supporting IT teams, costs and tensions escalate quickly, cutting right into the top and bottom lines of the business,” says Henry.

As essential personnel like warehouse, transportation and delivery team members work on the front lines, mobile computers can be a powerful tool to help them keep our supply chains and economy strong. Our team at Barcoding, Inc. can help you find the customized mobile devices and complete hardware solutions that suit your business’ needs.

Finding the Right Solution
There are a few key steps to take as we move forward during recovery, post-COVID-19 and beyond:

1. Empower the mobile worker with real-time reporting and automatic alert systems
2. Automate and enable remote support of the mobile worker and related infrastructure

Investing in technologies like mobile device management, intelligent mobile devices and data capture can make all the difference and help to close any remaining gaps.

A combination of the right approach, the right technology, and the right partners is the perfect blend for supply chain success. “What makes this possible is that, while these technologies are advanced, they are designed to be easy to implement and manage in any mobile architecture. A strong partner can deliver measurable value to both the front-line mobile workers and the CIO,” says Henry.
