Our client is a provider of wall mounted and handheld barcode scanners to various industries requiring efficient employee task tracking and job costing capability.
They currently aid customers in the landscaping, security patrol and property management field by tracking all field operations online.
The goal is to produce a new product to market every six months. Each new product will boast new functionality allowing them to facilitate previously uncharted markets.
Our customer came to us looking for an improvement to their first generation handheld barcode scanner. They wanted a smaller, ergonomic, more robust case design which used the same internal components as their current scanner.
Working together with our client, we created a design that met their requirements plus collaboration with our client’s electronics engineer’s allowed us to improve the functionality of their device, using the same components. Since this part was to be injection moulded, we produced SLA models of our designs so our client could have functional prototypes to be used for testing, marketing analysis and manufacturing estimates. The result was a well refined product prior to manufacturing the production mould.
