RESULTS

By generating and assigning unique pallet numbers, Azteca has achieved full traceability of goods moving into its finished goods warehouse. The company knows not only the location of a pallet, but also how many items it includes, which shift or line created it, and even which pallet to ship to which customer. By eliminating time-consuming manual data entry processes, there is less room for human error and the pallet information Azteca collects is more accurate.

Also, by integrating the data it collects with its back-end database, Azteca can run reports in just seconds to make sure production data is balanced on a shift-byshift basis. Azteca has also saved money by opting for network extenders, rather than creating new access points within the plant.

Looking forward, Azteca plans to expand the solution by introducing printers that create pallet tickets. In turn, the company can use the tickets to track product in the shipping process. Azteca is also planning to connect its database with its ERP system to integrate production information with other business functions.
