Sensus' IT department pushed hard to stick with Dell as their standard, but after two months of testing Cybernet's solution against multiple competitors, it was Cybernet's quality, price, and range of functionality that eventually pushed them to shelf their consumer-grade PCs.
The imaging deployment was seamless - all deployed computers were setup quickly with a "plug-and-play" result. The built in RFID technology turned every single computer in their multiple facilities into a time clock terminal as well, eliminating long waits by employees to start or finish their days. And with the RFID scanners integrated into their MES, timeclock management and labor tracking were completely automated, saving them time and money.
The Rugged X 10 tablets also turned out to be fantastic solutions for their needs. Materials handlers could now scan barcodes in the warehouse when they removed items for production, automatically updating inventory levels in their system. The rugged nature of the tablets protected against accidental drops. Furthermore, with built in RFID technology, the tablets also because timeclock terminals, further improving the efficiency of that business process. To date, Sensus has had zero failures in any of the units they installed in their 5 facilities.
