THE CHALLENGE

As a rapidly growing company, the biggest challenge facing Midwest Distribution was the ability to accurately track the increasing number of assets, brought on by rapid growth and more employees. Mike Gagen, Sr. Manager of Office Operations explains, “We would have issues of people trading monitors and PCs and switching tablets throughout the day, and we had no way to track it.” 

IMPLEMENTATION

After an online search, our easy to use, Barcode-Based Inventory System and Asset Tracking System was the perfect solution for Midwest Distribution.  The cost-effective system allowed the wholesale distribution company to enhance its ability to track its growing number of assets. Gagen explains,  “Since implementing the Asset Tracking System, we have had much fewer cases of assets going lost or changing locations without the knowledge of our IT Department.”
