Barcoding Inc., a provider of enterprisewide mobility solutions, announced the implementation of a mobile hardware solution for Wright Wisner Distributing Corp. to complement the company’s eoStar by Rutherford route accounting software solution with the automation of data collection and processing through rugged mobile devices and printers. The mobile solution is designed to help increase accuracy and efficiency for both delivery-side and intra-office processes for the Rochester, N.Y.-based beverage distributor.
Wright Wisner and its subsidiaries, CH Wright Distributing and BE Wright Distributing, distribute nearly 8.5 million cases of alcoholic and nonalcoholic beverages from suppliers such as MillerCoors, North American Breweries, Yuengling, Boston Beer, Cadbury and Polar to nearly 5,000 retailers throughout western New York.
After implementing eoStar by Rutherford – a route accounting software solution for beer distributors, wine distributors, importers, consumer product distributors and general wholesalers – in May 2010, Wright Wisner needed to find a partner that could provide hardware solutions in order to take full advantage of the software’s ability to integrate back-office applications with mobile devices. This past June, Barcoding completed a mobile hardware implementation with handheld rugged mobile devices and printers utilizing automatic identification and data capture technology.
“We chose to work with Barcoding because of the company’s extensive experience in the mobility solutions space,” says Scott Welch, IT manager for Wright Wisner. “Our interest was in a partner, not just another vendor, and Barcoding’s name continually surfaced during our search. Today, Barcoding’s mobility solutions have become an invaluable asset for not only our delivery and office staff, but also on an operations level in helping Wright Wisner on a daily basis to make better business decisions and formulate better market strategies that ultimately improve our bottom line.”
