Hand held device improves efficiency

Ping Europe is using LXE’s MX3X mobile handheld computer to automate its manufacturing and warehouse processes as part of a continuous improvement programme. The MX3X units are being deployed at the European eadquarters in Gainsbrough, Lincolnshire, where Ping designs, manufactures, exports and distributes custom-fit golf clubs.

Integrating with the bespoke warehouse management system, Neil Cottingham, IT manager at Ping Europe, believes that “incorporating the LXE MX3X to gain access to information will improve efficiency and streamline processes at Ping”.

The MX3X units were selected by Ping because of the large 6.5in high visibility screen which perfectly fit its specific requirements for use in both the manufacturing and warehouse environments. With up to six million combinations of club type available from Ping, the MX3X will assist the tracking of individual customer requirements from manufacture to shipment.
