Running Your Business Magazine
Mobile handheld eliminates manual process - Published April 2007 Ballingly Joinery 2000 Ltd., is located in Wellingtonbridge Co. Wexford, and was established in 1996. The company manufactures and supplies bespoke joinery, fire doors and screens to the building sector throughout the country and currently employs approximately 50 people.

As the company grew so too did the need to manage customers' orders, job processing on the shop floor, material rnanagement and stock control. Cost awareness, controls and reporting were also important elements in maintaining the company's competitiveness. Investing in areas to enable the company to reduce cost and improve efficiency was paramount.

Prior to installing Jobscan from Bariant Systems, a Shankill, Co. Dublin-based software developer, it took operatives an average of 15 minutes per person per day completing their daily work record. Manual processes and data inputting were both costly and time consuming. Ballingly Joinery needed a system that was robust, easy to use, could adapt to their growing company and would assist in improving efficiency.

All the operatives now have to do is simply scan relevant barcodes on their job cards, requiring little or no training. Progress and cost reports are now instantly updated and available to rnanagement. Management can now drill down into the progress and costs of jobs and with 19 main products they now run monthly profit and loss report for each.

The full solution gives Ballingly Joinery security in their IT infrastructure. with the rugged hardware, the Cipherlab unit, distributed in Ireland by Pc Cubed, staff can also conduct stock takes at any location on the premises using barcoding labels. The results are instantly uploaded to Jobscan giving staff an accurate and full overview of stock levels in their store.

The system also gives purchasers the tools to check suppliers, quantities and prices giving them the information for improved negotiations, leading to cost reductions.

'This aspect alone was worth the investment - 20% of our product range is 80% of our turnover. We can now make informed decisions on pricing strategies and future investment', stated Patrick Rowe, Managing Director.
