Programmable keyboards at the packing line in PICARD’s logistics

The Challenge

Friedrich PICARD GmbH & Co. KG is a wholesaler for bearings and linear motion technology and supplies all its customers worldwide from its location Bochum, Germany. The company guarantees its customers that the goods will be dispatched on the same day they are ordered. To ensure fast processing, both for dispatch on the same day and for dispatch by courier service, an intuitive and individualized data entry is essential.

The Solution

Due to the flexible key programming and labeling PICARD was able to put together a keyboard that offers exactly the required functions. The MCI 30 keypad enables employees at the packing line, in combination with barcode scanners, to quickly and specifically select shipping features and enter weights and address data into the shipping system. In this way, the processing time per package can be optimized and it can be ensured that the ordered goods are delivered wherever and whenever the customer wishes.



"With the compact and programmable keypad from PrehKeyTec, we enter our data into our dispatch system quickly and efficiently.“
