PLANO, Texas -- Arkansas-based Littlefield Oil convenience stores selected the CipherLab 8000 series mobile computers to improve its logistics systems, the vendor reported.
In coordination with convenience store distributor Glidewell Distributing, Jam Mart Convenience Store and Short Stop Truck Stop locations are using the pocket-size CipherLab 8000 mobile computers to automate inventory management processes and eliminate the costs associated with manual data entry, stock overage and empty shelf space, the company reported.
"Because CipherLab’s mobile computers store all of the UPCs and Glidewell item numbers, and the interface is easy for any employee to use, the item scanning and ordering process is as simple as can be," Ronnie Threet of Littlefield Oil, who oversees the Jam Mart and Short Stop Truck Stop locations, said in a statement. "Before using the CipherLab mobile computers, we had to manually enter data when we received grocery items and when we sold them; having an automated system with a direct pipeline to our distributor saves us time and prevents manual mistakes. Best of all, we never have over- or under-stocked product, saving us money and keeping our customers happy."
The CipherLab 8000 Mobile Computer offers speedy barcode scanning and data entry via multiple wireless communication options, the manufacturer stated. With a pocket-size form factor that exceeds industry drop standards, the CipherLab 8000 offers 100 continuous hours of battery life, long range radio communication of up to 1,148 feet and a backlit LCD screen for low-light areas and the lowest possible power consumption.
