"TAKE Solutions enterprise mobility solutions have provided us with a foundation to establish a disciplined mobility practice across manufacturing floor operations,” said Nikki Lange, project manager, Midmark Corporation

TAKE Solutions Ltd. [BSE: 532890 | NSE: TAKE], a leader in the Supply Chain Management and Life Sciences domains, today announced Midmark Corporation has successfully deployed its mobile supply chain across manufacturing operations with TAKE’s enterprise mobility portfolio of solutions. Leveraging TAKE’s mobility portfolio with its existing Oracle E-Business Suite application, Midmark has the control and visibility into real-time inventory to reduce out-of-the box failures directly from handheld scanners on the shop floor. Midmark plans to roll-out a second of three deployments by early 2012.

“TAKE Solutions enterprise mobility solutions have provided us with a foundation to establish a disciplined mobility practice across manufacturing floor operations,” said Nikki Lange, project manager, Midmark Corporation. “One of the factors for selecting TAKE was because of their flexibility and support of our existing Oracle system. Using the solutions, we have been able to meet the need of floor operations and give them the full ability to use handheld scanners to collect data, gain inventory access and perform transactions such as accurate label printing, all in real-time. We’ve resolved the primary concern of shipping incorrect quantity or parts to customers worldwide.”

Midmark deployed TAKE Solutions’ Gemini and Compliance Label Manager solution suites to provide mobile data collection using wireless scanning devices, increasing the availability of real-time information on receiving, shipping, and inventory activity across its supply chain. Pick Confirm scanning functionalities helped parcel shipping eliminate manual picking errors of incorrect product and quantities, reducing out-of-the-box failures by 75 percent within a month of implementation.

Coupled with Pick Confirm, Move Order functionalities help floor operations accurately transact material movement within Midmark’s manufacturing facilities to shipping locations around the world, establishing verification and product scanning procedures, improving cycle-time and ensuring appropriate delivery on all transactions. Label manager helps ensure accurate product identification and real-time label printing via wireless printers on the shop floor.

“TAKE's Enterprise Mobility practice leverages a distinctive combination of supply chain experience and the technology aspects of mobility—specifically within the Oracle E-Business Suite environment," said Grant Woolf, VP of strategy and business development, TAKE Solutions. “We are committed to packaging mobility services and solutions that are specific to a customer’s supply chain need or challenge, such as in the case of Midmark. We helped Midmark extend its mobile data collection capabilities to meet the needs of floor operations to effectively perform transactions and manage material inventory for efficient movement within manufacturing, and on time shipping with accuracy.”
