Benefits of Hardware Staging Services
Our hardware staging services ensure that your new and/or refreshed barcoding hardware is successfully implemented into your business environment. Here are a few important benefits of hardware staging from BCC Distribution that can improve efficiency and productivity:
1. Time and Cost Savings
Implementing new hardware or returning the hardware to the warehouse floor takes time and money. There are numerous configurations for the physical equipment, operating system versions and patches, native and third-party utilities, and so on. It can cost a tremendous amount of time to get your hardware like barcode scanners and barcode printers up-and-running if they are not properly sourced and staged by an equipment specialist that understands the hardware, connectivity, business system, and application requirements.
2. Shortens Downtime
Hardware staging by our experts also eliminates potential downtime. Having our BCC Distribution equipment specialists handle hardware staging, configuration, and delivery preparation significantly shortens downtime so you can get back to business as soon as possible. Incorrect equipment integration into your business system can increase downtime and lock-up valuable resource’s time.
3. Quality Control
At BCC Distribution, we’ll test and validate your hardware to both your and our standards, so that we can successfully integrate it into your business environment. Because we offer end-to-end SAP barcoding solutions, we can also ensure that your SAP software connectivity works with your hardware, such as handheld barcode scanners and rugged tablets.
4. Last-Minute Setup or Configuration Changes
Along with quality control, last-minute equipment customization can streamline implementation of URL, wireless/WLAN, apps, or device utility changes that are needed to match your business environment. At BCC Distribution, our experts will work closely with you, your IT and security department to ensure that you get the most out of your SAP-certified barcoding hardware. We can also standardize settings across devices so your team can manage assets seamlessly.
5. Risk Mitigation
Hardware deployments can be complex if not left to the experts. The SAP or other ERP software systems that the hardware is connected to requires precise configuration to maintain connectivity and data processing. By choosing BCC Distribution for hardware staging, you mitigate the risks associated with hardware deployments, such as failures, incompatibilities, and possible security vulnerabilities that are possible with incorrect integration.
