The Only Complete Enterprise Mobility Solution
Atair Eyewear, a VSP® Company, selected MobileFrame’s enterprise mobility software to implement RFID-based inventory management across their operations. As a VSP® Company, Altair has the potential to reach 25,000 independent offices and more than 55 million fully insured lives. VSP’s recent acquisition of Marchon Eyewear extends Altair’s reach even further to include 10,000 optician offices across the country as well as global opportunities. Altair Eyewear supports independent eye care providers with advanced eyewear technologies and distinctive brands including Tommy Bahama®, Joseph Abboud®, Sigrid Olsen®, and Revlon®.
Altair has already enjoyed great success with MobileFrame’s enterprise mobility software in their distribution center to pick and ship orders, so they were familiar with the configurable nature of the software. The next project on their plate was to use RFID technology to keep an accurate inventory of all eyewear frames on consignment at optician offices around the world. MobileFrame partnered with MSA Systems, Inc. to deliver the hardware, software, training, project management, and support services necessary to install and enable the management of the RFID-enabled inventory management system.
Altair Eyewear uses MobileFrame software in their distribution center to pick frame orders for shipment. Because they are picking orders, Altair needed a device that would allow for hands free scanning – the Motorola RS309 Wearable Ringer/Finger Scanner and the WT4000 Wearable Terminal. Being already familiar with MobileFrame’s ease of use, Altair again turned to MobileFrame for their current project, RFID-enabled inventory management. Previously, doctors who stock these frames had to complete cumbersome Consignment Checklist forms to determine which frames they have in stock, note which are missing and to place orders for new frames. Altair recognized that doctors will sell the frames that offer the path of least resistance; thus by simplifying this process, Altair would gain a significant competitive advantage. Using MobileFrame’s configurable RFID solution, Altair turned a cumbersome checklist into a powerful mobile application.
Although application development tools are commonplace, those tools require costly, time-consuming development to create business applications. Moreover, such business solutions tend to be inflexible, requiring expensive custom programming whenever business processes change. As business processes evolve, MobileFrame’s software provides unparalleled flexibility to create new mobile applications of any degree of complexity and incorporating any mix of business processes. The software then seamlessly deploys the new applications to the field wirelessly “on-the-fly.” With its flexibility and ease of use, MobileFrame’s enterprise mobility software will allow Altair to quickly deploy their inventory management project and make changes as needed, without time-consuming and expensive development efforts.
“MobileFrame’s configurable RFID software is very flexible and quick to fully deploy across any manufacturing operation. Our patented 100% Code Free platform architecture allows cost-effective RFID mobile solutions to be quickly deployed without having to write any code. Implementing RFID technology has never been so easy.” — Lonny Oswalt, CEO of MobileFrame
