DLog scores for Umbro
12 December 2012
Following the move from an inhouse ERP system to SAP, sponsor and official kit supplier of the England national football team, Umbro, uses ruggedised vehicle computer terminals from DLog for its warehouse operation
Recalling the move, desk top support analyst, Andy Scholes, says: 'One of the few issues was the truck mounted computers used for stocking and picking information. To scan products using the new SAP software on the old truck mount PCs took around 5 seconds per item. So, for the average items moved daily we worked it out as roughly an hour a day lost for each truck driver doing the same volume of work." SAP recommended DLoG's hardware based on the positive experience of another customer faced with similar problems.
Umbro didn't want to take any chances with the performance of the PC units, so Andy Scholes selected the fastest specification available. "The MCP6 device was far ahead of anything else offered with a 1.6GHz dual-core processor, I couldn't find anything that even came close," he says.
