Wholesale and Retail Nursery Goes from PaperIntensive to Paperless Inventory Control

Posted September 19, 2016

Janam XP20 Handheld ComputersSituated on 20 acres of land, Tri City Nursery delivers high-quality large caliper trees, shrubs, perennials and annuals to retailers, contractors and wholesalers across Utah, Colorado, Idaho and Wyoming. Tri City’s previous inventory process required 8-10 people hand-counting trees, bushes and shrubs which range in size from five- to 25-gallon pots. Inventory counts were noted on paper and later entered into the computer system manually. To improve productivity and efficiency, Tri City Nursery moved away from pads and paper and implemented a mobile computing inventory solution to keep a current count of every item on their lot.

Working with Automated Office Systems, Tri City Nursery chose Janam XP20s running Counterpoint software from Radiant Systems with a Magic software interface that easily runs on the Palm OS. The software handles Tri City’s inventory management and retail operations. The Palm OS-based Janam XP20 was chosen because of its barcode scanning capabilities, compact form factor and durability in tougher climates.

Today, Tri City’s inventory control process is fully automated and expeditious. To keep an accurate count of every item on the farm, each tree, shrub, bush, perennial and annual is tagged with a barcode. This contains all relevant information, including price, description and location. Using the XP20’s stylus, the employee taps the screen to choose a section of the lot and begins to scan the tagged items in that area for an accurate count. At day’s end, the Janam XP20 is returned to the cradle, and data is synchronized to the company’s inventory control system.
