Janam Technologies a leading provider of rugged mobile computers has announced that its XM66 rugged mobile computers have been selected by Kier Facilities Services for courier and postal services. KFS is part of the Services Division of Kier Group, an international construction and property service company.
Kier Facilities Services (KFS) has been providing its clients with facilities management services for more than six years. As part of its contract, KFS provides courier and postal services. On average, this includes over 1,100 deliveries to more than 350 sites every week. Among the deliveries are high-value items, pay checks and other parcels that require tracking and proof of delivery.
For this important activity, KFS have selected Janam’s XM66 rugged mobile computers running package tracking software from Barcoding Solutions Limited.
“Rugged hardware that can survive in tough environments is a must for our mobile solution to succeed,” said Sean Whelan, Contract Manager, Kier Facilities Services. “Strong scanning performance is also a prerequisite because there are several barcodes on each package, all varying in size. Barcoding Solutions enabled us to fully appreciate the importance of other key features such as display dimensions, product size, weight and battery life. The Janam devices offered the best mix of features for the job. It’s been a great success and most importantly, our workers, who use these devices all day, are pleased—so we know it was the right choice.”
Varlink the specialist distributor of mobile computing and data capture products supplied Barcoding Solutions with the Janam XM66 devices. Lee Browning, Barcoding Solutions Director commented, “We needed to find a suitable device for Kier and after consultation with Varlink’s excellent sales team, discussing the pros and cons of numerous devices, we decided that the Janam XM66 was going to give us the best solution. The device coupled with the excellent service contract has proven to be a huge success, part of which has to be attributed to the team at Varlink for their invaluable advice and guidance”.
