How HULFT gave new life to wrist-scanners from 2005 – saving millions in hardware and lowering operating costs

You may think your aging, disconnected data systems and devices are on the verge of becoming obsolete.

But, they’re not.

Just ask one mid-west auto parts maker who turned to HULFT after Toyota, their biggest client, mandated they incorporate Just-in-time (JIT) manufacturing processes into their factory.

Incorporating JIT involves eliminating the error-prone, time consuming process of manual-data entry and paper-based systems, in favor of real time shipping and production information.

A transformation of this scale typically comes at a huge cost to everyone involved. From shutting production down and redesigning processes and workflows, to the threat of change to the people who rely on a mindset of consistency and dependability to do their job every day.

Fortunately, for this auto parts maker — and the thousands of other American manufacturers in similar positions — HULFT creates simple, yet innovative software solutions for complex business problems.

In 60 days, HULFT was able to get 300 wrist-scanners, which were all running on Windows 95, to communicate with other legacy systems in real time, that previously operated in isolation — requiring manual data entry, .pdf and fax communications to bridge the gap.

Not only did this save the company millions in unnecessary hardware upgrades, they were able to deliver on their client demands for JIT without halting production, retraining their workers or changing they way people did their jobs.

Next time you find yourself staring at your old wrist-scanners, wondering how to make them relevant again, book a quick call with HULFT.
