NorCal Reptile Expo Inc.

The Challenge:

As the company started growing, keeping track of customers coming through the door became more and more challenging. We needed something fast and accurate. We would count raffle tickets at the end of each expo. We would usually count over 5000 tickets, but we would never be sure how accurate our count was. Other times, some tickets would get lost and end up throwing off the final count.

Pangea Pod Hotel

The Challenge:

We wanted to allow guests to purchase food and drink at our hotel using their room key. Our room keys are sleek Pangea-themed RFID chips on adjustable wristbands. We knew that finding a product that could retrieve the RFID data from these devices would be difficult, but protecting ourselves and our customers from fraud and over or under-charging was an absolute priority; we certainly didn’t want a situation where a guest could be charged for someone else’s bill, as can happen in most hotels where the only verification required is a room number.

We knew we needed a product that could meet the requirements of staying outdoors in the Whistler winter where it can get down to -30 C. And it also had to be durable enough to withstand the inevitable knocks and shocks that come with constant commercial use. When a server’s hands are slippery, devices tend to hit the deck a lot!

Plantation Coffee

The Challenge:
Plantation uses Square for their merchandising needs. When Calvin was offered to expand into the Myer department stores, their kiosks were asked to use the conventional POS system that was standard concessions in Myer and integrated with the Myer 1 loyalty card. As a tech-savvy individual, Calvin had no intention of using the clunky POS system that was being offered. But, if the Myer 1 card couldn’t be used, there was no deal.

They needed a system that would enable their company to use the Myer 1 loyalty program for their customers. Socket Mobile’s barcode scanners were the answer to their problem.

“We tested many different scanners before we knew this was the one.” – Calvin

RollMore Using ShipHero

The Challenge:
RollMore had 3 challenges to solve:

  1. Accuracy of inventory - Karate Depot sells many SKUs, with many SKU variations which could easily lead to the wrong products being picked or put into bin locations. Typically, when the warehouse team is dealing with higher order volume (we ship on average a thousand orders per day), they tend to make more errors when reading labels or visually referencing products. Inventory would often be incorrect, with wrong SKUs being put into incorrect locations, leading to more errors when fulfilling orders.
  2. Order picking accuracy - Again, our error rates would increase as order volume and activity volume increased, and we could correlate this primarily to new warehouse employees being unfamiliar with what they were picking, along with making shortcuts to save time.
  3. Taking too long to pack orders - Packers were having to click too many buttons for each order! Selecting the box, shipping method, printing a label etc. Too many seconds added for each order resulted in a lower packing volume per packer requiring us to hire more packers to keep up with demand.
