Janam Technologies LLC, a provider of rugged mobile computers that scan barcodes and communicate wirelessly, and SDG Systems, a company that develops and supports Linux system software and implements Android solutions on rugged and embedded devices, have teamed up to make the Linux operating system available on Janam XG Series devices.
The Linux operating system fully supports the features of the XG Series and a wide variety of programming tools through the Yocto Project.
“Research indicates a steady increase of Linux adoption for the third straight year,” said Todd Blumer, President of SDG Systems, citing the Linux Foundation 2013 Enterprise End User Report. “While the report focuses primarily on Linux servers, the implications for mobile enterprise devices are equally exciting. We are pleased to enable Janam to offer the XG Series with Linux and look forward to a growing relationship.”
Janam’s XG Series was designed for scan-intensive, extended shift use in demanding environments. With its battery in the handle, the XG Series line of products is light and balanced in the hand. It offers industrial-quality construction and efficiency-enhancing features such as well-spaced keys and mobile DDR memory.
The Series includes the XG100 with Honeywell’s Adaptus imaging technology and the XG105 with Motorola’s SE965 high-performance laser scan engine.
Kelli’s Gift Shop Suppliers, a wholesale distributor of gift products, has selected Janam’s XG Series as the mobile handheld for its real-time warehouse management system, designed and developed by Tech-Acumen, Inc., a software solution provider. Material handlers in Kelli’s massive warehouse use Janam’s XG105 as they perform tasks. All warehouse operations, including receiving, put-away, order-picking and replenishment are fully supported with real-time data.
“We’ve seem dramatic improvements in productivity and accuracy,” said Justin Cohen, President, Kelli’s Gift Shop Suppliers. “Our material handlers find the XG device easy to use and like that we’re able to balance loads and assign orders in real-time. We now send orders electronically to the floor, receive up-to-the-minute cycle counts and obtain essential data for real-time decision-making. What’s really great is that all these benefits extend beyond the warehouse. We’ve gained efficiencies in customer service, accounting, even marketing. Real-time makes a difference. The results are pretty exciting.”
