User Scenarios
A Total Solution of RK25 and 9700A Combining WMDS and AppLock is Perfect for Efficient Deployment in Warehouse and Factory
A leading manufacturer in application-specific fluid power and power transmission solutions updates mobile device deployment for multiple factories and distribution centers. With demands in compatibility, long reading range, easy deployment 

and maximum return on investments, CipherLab RK25 and 9700A becomes the clear solution to satisfy all of the various applications.

Gates Soochow, founded in 1995 and a part of Gates Corporation, is a leading manufacturer of application-specific fluid power and power transmission solutions. Gates Soochow leads in the latest technology from the USA and Japan to provide qualified solutions to top players in China, such as FAW-COLKSWAGEN, HONDA, PEUGEOT, CITROEN, and more.

With 4 factories and 2 distribution centers, Gates leads in SAP system while deploying about 500 units of Zebra Windows mobile computers for production and warehouse management. As time goes by, those devices become out-of-date, and Gates startes planning to migrate to Android mobile computers for replacements. Gates self-developes system of MES and WMS. However, in addition to compatibility, they also require new solutions with long reading range, easy deployment, and maximum return on investment.

CipherLab therefore presents Gates with the total solution of RK25 and 9700A combining software, WMDS and AppLock. Comparing to the original devices, RK25 has the advantage in lightweight and compact dimension, easy removable battery design, stable 4G connection, application-suite numeric keypad, and industrial ruggedness. For Gates, RK25 is simply the device that fits most applications of the production line and inventory management. Meanwhile, 9700A with near/far 2D imager is also chosen for long range scanning demands.

With the software of WMDS and AppLock, Gates can further deploy and manage multiple devices centrally and simultaneously at one time. This significantly shortens the replacement period and increases the efficiency for IT managers and workers on the shop floor. Gates is also satisfied with CipherLab's on-line and on-site support for every technology issue during deployment and testing. Moreover, the total solution indeed matches their expectation of ROI.

The project will roll out over 300 units of RK25 series, and the total solution will expand to Gates' 4 factories in India. For more information about the total solution, please visit

CipherLab RK25 Improves Communications and Increases Operational Effectiveness in Hospital Logistics in Germany
A hospital located in the middle of Germany needs to provide high standards of service. Having to manually manage the healthcare supply chain, the hospital looks for solutions that would improve operational effectiveness while

being compliant to the FMD. The CipherLab  RK25's superior 2D scanning, physical keypad and stable communication provide the perfect functions to improve communications and operational effectiveness. 

The German hospital is responsible for providing health services and improving the health for the population of a town in the middle of Germany. It provides high standards of services and facilities for patients, visitors, medical teams and staff.

A manual heavy management process for the healthcare supply chain become a big issue and impact the budgets and daily delivery of patient cares and staff's hands-on work. There are so many supplies transported in the different sites and different rooms in the hospital, from meal boxes, infusion drugs, patient records, specimens, to medications and equipment. Keeping track of this large inventory manually is demanding and time-consuming. When the inventory is not tracked properly, inefficiencies and additional costs go up while the supplies get lost, stock runs out and critical equipment locations are uncertain.

In addition, the new FMD (Falsified Medicines Directive) legislation starts on Feb 9th, 2019 across Europe. A 2D barcode along with anti-tampering devices on the medical packages is enforced to strictly control quality throughout the entire circulation. Therefore, the German hospital needs to purchase mobile devices with 2D barcode scanners to be FMD compliant.

By deploying CipherLab's RK25 mobile computers in the inventory check and supply transportation, this German hospital enhances inventory operations, gains efficiency to distribute supplies, minimizes time spent looking for equipment and improves utilization levels. The RK25 offers superior 2D barcode scanning even when capturing medicine details form curved bottles. It provides physical keypads to allow technicians to quickly input information. The RK25 delivers real-time information tracking and can be fully integrated with the asset management database. Furthermore, the stable Wi-Fi and 4G/LTE provide rapid access to essential data and clear communication with the back-end system.

CipherLab's RK25 helps to easily identify, track and manage supplies in the hospital. It allows the users to provide better service while having more time to carrying out vital tasks and patient care.
