Closure Systems International (CSI), a division of Reynolds Holding Group, manufactures the equipment that seals 75 billion bottles worldwide each year. But the company's aging technologies were becoming increasingly inefficient.
With so many facilities spread across the globe, CSI needed to maintain high levels of operational efficiency to stay ahead of the competition. This included using technology to reduce overhead costs associated with inventory handling and labor.
Because plastic bottles don’t stack completely flat on pallets and require considerable space to pack, store and ship, CSI locates their manufacturing facilities near the sites of major beverage providers to minimize shipping distance and cost. Confronted with narrow margins due widepsread infrastructure and supply chain pressures, CSI elected to modernize and streamline their operations, starting with upgrading their Oracle® E-Business Suite ERP system to the latest release. However, their legacy automated data collection (ADC) system was not compatible with newer versions of Oracle® EBS. CSI needed an alternative that replaced their aging ADC technology while also extending ERP capabilities with real-time inventory mobility.
After researching and evaluating new mobile data collection solutions, CSI selected RFgen Mobile Foundations for Oracle® E-Business Suite. RFgen is a powerful, flexible solution that automates data collection with mobile barcoding and extends ERP inventory control onto purpose-built enterprise mobile devices, enabling two-way, real-time information exchange between barcode scanners, tablets, mobile computing devices, IoT and IIoT devices, and Oracle® E-Business Suite.
