Innovative Fibers a manufacturer of polyester fiber needed an improved system for tracking raw materials in their manufacturing process.
Enable Labs designed a mobile application using an iPod Touch combined with a ProLinea scanner (just like the ones in the Apple Store) using iOS to track inventory during the manufacturing process.
Due to the portable nature and small size of the device it was readily accepted and embraced where other solutions had failed in the past.
The mobile application integrated tightly with their existing backend using a RESTful web service eliminating all double and manual entry that had been used in the past.
After deployment of the system Innovative Fibers tracking of their raw materials inventory was greatly improved resulting in a decrease in systematic write downs of raw materials of approximately 90%.
