Title Customer Speak
Capabilities of RFID-based warehouse management
Mr. Suresh ShreedharanBeing a 3PL service provider, we face many challenges in our warehouses. We intend to deploy RFID at select warehouses.( radio frequency identification) RFID-based warehouse management brings several benefits that can eliminate current drawbacks with the help of advanced scanning that improves supply-chain visibility and agility for greater operational efficiency. Capabilities include:

Improved efficiency by using RF tags that facilitate automatic data entry rather than manually making entries of stock first on paper and then into computer terminals. This eliminates the time required for data entry, sending paper order to the warehouse and filling and maintaining the paperwork.

Wireless warehouse can provide timely information and integration of warehouse data into the ERP system. Integration of warehouse information and ERP system.

Ensures timely and accurate information for invoicing, purchase order payments and inventory tracking.

Reduces inventory errors, ensuring that the inventory reported is indeed available. By tracking pieces more exactly, companies can more accurately detail what has sold in the last business day, and improve the accuracy of their forecasts about what inventory is actually needed.

Strengthen security against product theft, loss and counterfeiting

A significant issue for an IT manager is to implement an effective, reliable RFID solution with low total cost of ownership (TCO). This is particularly true since all the benefits of the system will accrue to business operations, while the IT budget will have to absorb an increase in infrastructure spend.

Swan was able to win large networking deal worth 1 Crore with HP Procurve solution in one of the top private sector bank who were till date using exclusively CISCO solutions. The deal was unique to Swan not because of its value but the solution we proposed from HP networking protfolio over traditional CISCO solution. The ROI which we offered with latest features from HP Procurve family was too tempting to refuse even for stunch CISCO loyal customer.

Title Case Study

Gammon opts for the best to ensure Mumbai-Nashik Expressway flows smoothly

Swan in partnership with Neverfail helped Gammon India to ensure smooth traffic flow on the Mumbai-Nashik Expresseway. Gammon through its operating company MNEL earns revenue by charging a toll collected through the vehicles passing through the Toll Plaza.
These toll plazas issue tickets and charge a toll as well as take photographic images of each vehicle that is transmitted and stored on central servers. It is critical for their business to ensure 24x7 availability of the SQL servers that record the information. Any downtime would result in a queue of vehicles stretching kilometres on the expressway. Gammon needed a solution that would never fail, and that is exactly what Swan helped them to achieve with Never Fail.

Title Technology Trend

An independent survey questioned more than 1,400 CIOs with 100 or more employees. Among these, 49 percent said they plan on increasing tablet use in the next 24 months. Gartner Says Tablets Help Drive Worldwide IT Spending Up 5.6 Percent in 2011. Worldwide IT spending is forecast to total $3.6 trillion in 2011, a 5.6 percent increase from $3.4 trillion in 2010. IDC is projecting around 50.4 million tablet shipment for this year.

With more companies moving to Internet-based file sharing and data storage, along with an emphasis on portability and mobile productivity, it’s no surprise CIOs anticipate wider use of tablet computers.

An increase in tablet use will likely add to the roles of IT professionals. Businesses will need experts who not only are knowledgeable about mobile applications and security, but also can help the company make better strategic use of mobile devices to enhance productivity and customer service.
