In the previous process, an inventory inspector checked only an items existence but couldn’t analyze its characteristics, such as weight, size, etc. Also, inspectors had too many manual and drudgery tasks that should have been automated. As a result, the inventory process didn’t recognize violations in stores on time.
One of the parts of the developed product is software for the Portable Data Terminals (PDT). PDT is a device that can scan a barcode, save the scanned data and synchronize it with a server via Wi-Fi.
Product Discovery helped us to find an interface solution for a new terminal program. We designed and developed software for the PDT on Windows CE in just 3 months.
After the four tests in real stores, the solution was found, implemented and launched as a standard in the client’s stores.
Now inspectors can check all characteristics on the PDT screen including a photo of the scanned item. There is no manual and drudgery work anymore, everything is automated.
