Case Studies

Leaven


The Leaven is a non-profit organization founded in 2005 with ten locations across Northern and Southern California. Their focus is providing after-school tutoring and summer enrichment programs for at-risk children.


Accountability and transparency are concerns with any non-profit. According to Mark Lillis, Executive Director of the Leaven, his organization received three to five requests per week from donors asking where their donations were and where the money was going.


Maharishi University of Management


Maharishi University of Management is located in Fairfield, IA and is distinguished for pioneering what is known as “consciousness-based education”. The curriculum includes the practice of the Transcendental Meditation technique and has garnered much acclaim from celebrities such as David Lynch, Oprah Winfrey, and Jim Carrey— just to name a few.


In 2013, the School launched the David Lynch Masters in Filmmaking program in which a big component was providing students with state-of-the-art equipment access. In order to keep up with student demand for AV equipment and computers, and establish a high-level of accountability within the program, Maharishi University sought a barcode and web-based asset management system.


MBC - Environmental Solutions


MBC, located in South Island, New Zealand, is a company that specializes in environmental solutions involving project management, animal control, vegetation services, erosion control, and more. Since 2007, the company has been providing genuine client care and responsible environmental management to clients in an array of industries including mining, energy generation, government, transportation, farming and forestry.

"We have been expanding our company to new areas of business and therefore significantly stepped-up the amount of equipment we are purchasing. These actions created the need for an inventory system driven by online databases and not spreadsheets," says Adam Walker, Technical Manager at MBC.


Lovin' Spoonfuls, Inc. Case Study


Lovin' Spoonfuls is an organization that facilitates the recovery and distribution of healthy, perishable food that would otherwise be discarded. Since 2010, the team has distributed over 1,250,000 pounds of food directly to impactful community organizations and resources in Boston, Massachusetts.

In order to efficiently bridge the gap between food abundance and scarcity, a cloud-based automated inventory management system was needed to utilize data captured through mobile barcode technology that was being missed due to the limitations of their paper-based system.  In addition, Lovin' Spoonfuls wanted to increase the productivity of their long-term food distribution strategy and avoid any temporary solutions.


Strategic Resources, Inc. Case Study


For over 20 years, Strategic Resources, Inc (SRI) has operated under the vision of providing quality management consulting, information technology, telecommunications, and engineering / logistics, and health services satisfying all of their clients—United States armed services such as the Navy, Army, Air National Guard, Department of Defense, Air Force and Army National Guard. In order to perform services in military contracts, SRI needed an online asset tracking system that gives them the capability to track military assets and tools in real time.

It was a challenge knowing exactly where their tools and equipment were located over multiple locations, who had them, and when they were checked back into the system. It was also important to track the time duration of occupied assets, consistently schedule and perform maintenance and service checks, and report on past activity of equipment usage. See how BarCloud helped SRI keep track their assets and automate their inventory process.


TriActive Case Study


In order to improve lives everywhere, James P. Sargen, founder of TriActive America, empowers all individuals to enjoy exercising outdoors with one vision—to build outdoor fitness equipment that could be installed in parks, com-munity areas, schools, college campuses, fitness zones, and outdoor gyms for everyone to use by specializing in func¬tional designs that maximize the workout potential. With a constant flow of expensive equipment being received and issued out, TriActive America needed an automated invento¬ry and asset tracking system that could be accessed anytime, anywhere by many users to decrease time spent in success¬fully managing the movement and processing of inventory.

TriActive America needed an efficient way of identifying exactly what is needed to fulfill the order, what stock inventory is currently on hand in the warehouses, and inventory items issued out. See how BarCloud helped TriActive America save time and money by automating their inventory.


Hickam Air Force Case Study


Hickam Air Force base is located on the island of Oahu, Hawaii, shares its runways adjacent to Honolulu's International Airport, and is the Headquarters of the United Pacific Air Force. Consisting of over 2,850 acres and valued at more than $444 million, Hickam Air Force base is a powerful presence of national security for the United States of America.

"As Critical Care Air Transport Team members, we rely on our supplies and equipment to afford us the means to provide for the Air Force when needed. We must have the right supplies and the right amount, as well as know the location these supplies are located. I must have equipment that is maintained and operational," says Captain John Fowler, Critical Care Air Transport Team (CCATT) IT Consultant and Coordinator at Hickam Air Force Base, US Air Force.

Hundreds of supplies and assets valued at millions of dollars needed to be tracked, all of which had to be at 100% operational readiness as needed. Thus, a powerful inventory and asset tracking system needed to be implemented that would eliminate task redundancy, save time and money, and improve inventory control.
