Surprise Performance of CipherLab 9700 Series in a Cold Storage Warehouse
A leading food importer in Taiwan, offering the best food products around the world, has its own cold storage warehouse to ensure quality and consistency for customers’ best experience. Today, the enterprise continues to build a winning
business model as a professional supplier of fine foods.
Being able to work without interruption in low temperature environments is a must for a cold storage warehouse. Combined with CipherLab
9700 series industrial mobile computer and the additional heater option, it has helped in avoiding frosts on screens, maintain the reading efficiencies and reduce battery consumptions in a cold storage warehouse under temperature of -20°C. The
9700 series with pistol grip provides workers a great operational experience. It makes it convenient for users to utilize the device in low temperature environments. In addition, the physical keypad allows users to key-in the picked inventory amount easier. The
9700 series also has been used at the storage cache area, without the additional heater, at the temperature of 5°C while waiting for the goods to be loaded in the transport truck.
The implementation of CipherLab
9700 series fulfills the user demands in both frozen and refrigerated environments, especially when the temperature differences may cause malfunctions in different devices. However, the
9700 series, with heater, (unexpectedly) surprisingly solved the problem of device coldness and frost in a cold storage environment. These benefits highly support user satisfaction and willingness to purchase more
9700 series with heater function for the new cold storage warehouses in Taipei and Taichung.
The CipherLab RK25 Maximizes its Features in Stationery Warehouse Management
A leading stationery supplier enterprise, offering a wide variety of stationery supplies for offices and schools, has over 6,000 exclusive distributors and more than 50,000 retail sites throughout China. This enterprise has set up a well-known brand

In such a large stationery warehouse, the enterprise faces unstable Wi-Fi connections, needs of switching systems under Browser/Server structure and inaccurate data input due to small physical keypads. Due to these existing issues, it caused the reduction of user operation efficiency. This enterprise decided to change their devices to the
RK25 series rugged mobile computers, which provided the user-friendly operation and enterprise-oriented usability.
RK25 is built with the most reliable LTE connection for constant back-end system connection and real-time data transmission. In addition, the light weight
RK25 has the option of 25-key wide numeric keypads, which gives more accurate data input to users in a non-visual operation environments. Combined with certified browser and emulation software, the
RK25 allows the users to run the warehouse management system under the existing operating system.
The adoption of
RK25 series, together with our SI software, fulfill the user demands in both functionality and usability, especially resolving the operating issues on function keys. With the good user experience of
RK25 and strong service and supports, the enterprise replaced the old handheld terminals with CipherLab 9700 series industrial mobile computer for better efficiency in warehousing management. As a result, the enterprise is expected to deploy 500 units of
RK25 series in stationery warehouses and 100 units of 9700 series in distribution centers.
