As we began 2017, the Swiss-Tech team started the year with a full bar coding technology implementation project. While it kicked off as a corrective action project, it quickly turned into a company-wide continual improvement plan impacting many areas from receiving raw material to the shipment of finished goods to our customer.
We have definitely taken inventory control to the next level as a world-class organization. While we aimed at the elimination of human error in ERP transactions, we also improved the data collection accuracy, decreased transaction cycle times and eliminated much risk in our process overall.
The change, both inexpensive and user-friendly, has brought significant positive feedback from several customers acknowledging our capabilities and working with us to improve the ease of receipts at their facilities.
