With a need for cutting-edge solutions that guarantee their brand promise, the implementation of TouchStar's latest generation Boston 8550 handheld terminals is set to help Cornelius provide additional productivity gains within the company's Brighouse-based manufacturing and distribution operation.
As a leading supplier of beverage dispensing and cooling equipment, the importance of maximising the prompt and efficient service to its consumers is a key objective for Cornelius. The state-of-the-art technology upgrade, based on TouchStar's Boston 8550 handheld will support fast and accurate data capture, key in securing the additional productivity gains through the goods in, put away, picking and despatch operation. In addition, the rollout of the latest generation RF solution will also provide enhanced visibility and traceability throughout the complete manufacturing process, allowing Cornelius to set new standards for the provision of intelligent management information.
Continuing a longstanding relationship with TouchStar that spans over 9 years, the upgrade is to be implemented across their operation in the near future. Jon Leaning, System Analyst, explains, "Having worked closely with TouchStar for a number of years, my experience was positive, so it made sense to look at how their latest generation technology could benefit Cornelius and our clients. Following an evaluation period, it became clear that the Boston 8550 would provide the advanced, flexible and future proofed technology that would allow for additional efficiencies within our manufacturing and distribution operation. TouchStar provide the equipment and the 24/7 support so we are confident that we have access to the levels of support to fully optimise our real time operation."
Kevin Crookes, Technical Consultant at TouchStar, adds, "I am delighted that Cornelius has chosen to work with us on their system upgrade. Having worked with Cornelius for a number of years, our understanding of their operation has allowed us to put forward a solution that will integrate effectively within their busy manufacturing and distribution operation. We look forward to continuing our relationship with Cornelius for many years to come."
