Look. There’s no question that the time has come for you to update your warehouse’s networking and mobility solutions. Not only have Windows® devices reached End-of-life status and will no longer be supported, but running outdated green-screen applications won’t empower your workers to the extent necessary — they simply were not designed to match the speed and volume of today’s on-demand economy. And that’s just the start of it. Exponential growth in e-commerce, higher consumer expectations of product availability, delivery speed, and intensifying competition for labor are fundamentally changing warehouse operations.
Any IT partner you talk to will tell you all the benefits of modernizing your operations. Cost savings. Increased production. Increased accountability. Reduced loss. Simplicity. Simplicity. Simplicity. But, as you know, any change comes with challenges, curve balls, and downright pitfalls. A true partner highlights those upfront right along with the advantages to give you a full picture and creates solutions to avoid them altogether. A partner such as TPI.
TPI helps warehousing companies that are looking to modernize their operations in order to improve operational efficiency and financial performance. We use our industry expertise to assess our customer’s current network and applications and then design, install, and deploy mobile computing and scanning solutions designed to help our partners reach and exceed their goals. And just as we prepare you to enjoy best case scenarios, we also protect you from worst-case ones.
More is More
It’s simple math. The more you add to your system (mobile computers, scanners, printers, IoT devices, smartphones, etc.) the more you open yourself up to glitches, issues, and attacks. That’s why we recommend 24-hour monitoring service. This helps to address issues before they become problems. An indispensable tool that helps us monitor and troubleshoot today’s solutions is Aruba’s User Experience Insight.
User Experience Insight uses sensors that test all aspects of connectivity to apps in your data center and in the cloud. The sensors connect to any wired and wireless network and interact with apps just like any other client device. They work with any network, including non-Aruba and mixed-vendor infrastructure, and offer the following benefits:
- Sleek, silent and simple to use
- Designed to fit into any environment
- Security-hardened for tamper and theft prevention
- Uses Power-over-Ethernet or an A/C adapter for power
- Tests LAN, VLAN, WLAN and WAN connections
- Includes cellular data connectivity for:
- Zero Touch Provisioning, network connection settings are sent directly to each sensor
- Alerting you about catastrophic network failures and power outages
Putting It all Together
The User Experience Insight sensors sends information to an intuitive dashboard that delivers instant access to user experience across all your sites – to easily separate Wi-Fi issues from application issues without a single click. Using AI Alerts and onsite sensors, we can pinpoint when and where suboptimal performance problems are occurring to eliminate alert fatigue.
This easy-to-read dashboard instantly provides the status of network and mission critical-apps. And real-time status changes make it easy to get ahead of help desk calls and associated user complaints as well as IoT issues. When a failure is spotted, we can immediately identify root cause details and gain access to a historical view for deeper analysis. The overall goal is to ensure automated processes on the floor, in the warehouse and logistics operate uninterrupted. With Aruba’s technology and TPI’s expertise, we can provide you with consistent connectivity that drives digital transformation, collaboration, and productivity.
Make no mistake: the problems of outdated mobility solutions far outweigh the challenges of modernizing your warehouse operations. At TPI, we believe if you’re going to modernize, you should do it right. And go in with your eyes open. We invite you to contact us today and begin your journey toward the efficiency, productivity, reliability, and everything else that comes with modernizing your warehouse.
