Kier Facilities Services Deploys Janam Rugged Mobile Computers

Kier Group's Services Division uses Janam's XM66 for courier and postal services in English County

September 13, 2011

Janam Technologies LLC, a leading provider of rugged mobile computers that scan barcodes and communicate wirelessly, today announced that its XM66 rugged mobile computers have been selected by Kier Facilities Services for courier and postal services in a county in England.  KFS is part of the Services Division of Kier Group plc, an international construction and property service company.

 Kier Facilities Services (KFS) has been providing its clients with facilities management services for more than six years.  As part of its contract, KFS provides courier and postal services.  On average, this includes over 1,100 deliveries to more than 350 sites every week.  Among the deliveries are high-value items, paychecks and other parcels that require tracking and proof of delivery.  For this mission-critical activity, KFS has deployed Janam’s XM66 rugged mobile computers running package tracking software from Barcoding Solutions Limited, a UK-based mobile solution provider and Janam Certified Partner.

“Rugged hardware that can survive in tough environments is a must for our mobile solution to succeed,” said Sean Whelan, Contract Manager, Kier Facilities Services.  “Strong scanning performance is also a prerequisite because there are several barcodes on each package, all varying in size.  Barcoding Solutions enabled us to fully appreciate the importance of other key features such as display dimensions, product size, weight and battery life.  The Janam devices offered the best mix of features for the job.  It’s been a great success and most importantly, our workers, who use these devices all day, are pleased—so we know it was the right choice.”

“There is a lot to consider when evaluating mobile barcode scanning solutions,” said Dwight Ogletree, VP of Sales for Janam.  “We are pleased to work with reseller partners like Barcoding Solutions Ltd. who consistently demonstrate an ability to provide guidance, address customer requirements and lead world-class organizations like Kier Services to the best decisions for their business.”
