Getting beer faster in the Caribbean with F5m tablets

Richard Harris Richard Harris in Enterprise Wednesday, February 8, 2017

Xplore Technologies Corp.​, a tablet computer manufacturer, has announced that one of the largest beer distributors in the Caribbean has begun using their Motion F5m tablets to track and schedule beer shipments among its 600 delivery trucks in the Dominican Republic. The company is also using F5m tablets to run an inventory control management application on its bottling lines and storage areas for the 20 brands it sells on behalf of its parent company.

“As the primary beer producer in the Dominican Republic and the largest beer distributor in the Caribbean, this customer is responsible for massive volumes of inventory distribution on a daily basis. They need well-informed workers who can coordinate and execute logistics, both inside and outside the depot, with precision,” noted Kirk Meyer, Director of Sales for Latin America at Xplore. “Fortunately, they realized that a well-designed rugged mobility solution can directly improve beer distribution processes and entrusted Xplore’s warehouse mobility experts to help them achieve their overall business goals.”

The 3.3lb, MIL-STD-810G F5m utilizes 5th generation Intel Core processors to quickly move through computation-intensive applications while improving overall power efficiency. The beer distributor is now using the tablet in place of paper to generate and complete work orders in the distribution center and print tickets for the driver while on the loading dock to confirm their current freight information.

As noted by Mark Holleran, president and COO of Xplore: “Despite a very competitive selection process, Xplore rugged tablets proved to be the only mobile PC solution that could create the complete mobilized operating model the customer needed and sustain it, without fail, on the scale that future business growth and emerging technology systems will demand.”
