Recauchutagem Nortenha is a high tech company that is continuously investing in equipment, technology and manufacturing processes. This is one of the reasons for the choice of wireless handheld devices. To stay on top of the game, it was necessary to improve both the production and warehouse systems. Fixed terminals were already being used, which in fact, were reducing the production capabilities due to their lack of mobility.

X64 Wireless Terminals were brought in to enhance the Recauchutagem Nortenha activities, by improving its operational system and increasing warehouse efficiency. The X64 wireless terminals have since then, played a key role in the process of switching from fixed terminals to wireless terminals. The result is outstanding! and today the production has increased substantially, thanks to the fast production control and subsequent waste reduction.



Increased efficiency

Some time ago, Recauchutagem Nortenha realized that their paper system, was not the best option to keep them on top of the market. Also, the warehouse management system, was in desperate need for a more efficient way to control stock. Those responsible for implementing these improvements, quickly realized that what they needed was a reliable solution with good accessibility. This, they were not achieving with the fixed terminals.

“To enable us to be as efficient as possible, we needed a system that would allow us to rigorously control, every single aspect of the production line”.

“The warehouse was also in need of a system that would allow us to be on top of the necessary raw materials, and also a system that would enable accurate stock control in real time”.


The right step for a better future

A number of suppliers were invited to present their solutions, but when X64 was introduced, Recauchutagem Nortenha, decided that this was just the right step for a better future. The products presented by X64, as it turned out, were the perfect solution that satisfied all the current needs of the company.
