Mitre 10 has recently upgraded its data collection system across all its warehouses in a partnership with mobile technology firm Gamma Solutions.

The national retailer has replaced its manual system of inventory management with an electronic platform implementing hand-held technology.

BlackHawke Marshall, Project Manager Mitre 10, says operators move quicker and achieve more in a day.

"It also saves a considerable amount of time in getting information back into our national database," he says.

Mitre 10’s legacy inventory management system didn't provide access to a real-time record of the locations and specifics of products throughout the nation, with the process often being hampered by the timely process of manually receiving and despatching orders.

Gamma Solutions implemented radio frequency solutions for the scanning and printing of labels in different areas of the Mitre 10 supply chain and warehouse environment.

"Gamma Solutions was able to specify a variety of wireless handheld solutions for the warehousing of Mitre 10 stock, this included mobile and fixed position barcode scanners," says Paul Pleming of Gamma Solutions.

"These barcode scanners are able to be used by operators throughout the different Mitre 10 warehouses providing a real-time inventory solution."

More on the Mitre 10 case study in the January/February edition of SupplyChain Review magazine, out next week.
