October 18, 2011

Sumitomo Electric Lightwave knows exactly what it takes to accelerate Internet connections to the speed of light. Always on the cutting edge, the company is always looking for ways to streamline and automate its internal processes wherever possible.

When management noticed that their warehouse supervisor had to manually record all material movement transactions each day, they sought a way to simplify the process. Even though the company staffed the warehouse eight hours a day, material moved 24 hours a day. The result was that the warehouse manager had to catch up with a backlog of movement transactions—time better spent looking for ways to help achieve overall business objectives.

Download this case study to learn how a leading fiber optic cable manufacturer automated its material and inventory movement transactions while improving accuracy with a solution that included Zebra RFID technology.
