Case Study – Agriline

Agriline approached EBS with a number of issues regarding their existing barcoding system, and we were quickly able to get them on the right track. The solution they were using was slow and expensive, it was lacking key features and was not at all user-friendly, meaning Agriline were experiencing a number of issues and errors. In essence, it was unreliable.

 

What could EBS do about it? Plenty.

 

We provided them with a new solution that was quick, with equipment that was robust and cost-effective, and that works on any Android device. For the user, it was quick and easy to learn with plenty of rich features for ongoing development. If no barcode currently exists in Sage, then the solution will generate a barcode as the stock comes in.

 

Agriline were ultimately impressed at how the speed of their stock and stock movements was greatly improved through the live link.
