Coastal Pipco Improves Inventory Management with Janam Mobile Computers

Janam’s powerful, rugged and affordable XM5 boosts productivity by approximately 60 percent

September 28, 2016

Janam Technologies LLC, a leading provider of rugged mobile computers that scan barcodes and communicate wirelessly, announced today that Coastal Pipco, a wholesale distributor for agriculture and landscape irrigation systems, is using XM5 rugged mobile computers from Janam to improve inventory management and sales operations.

With its focus on delivering superior customer service, Coastal Pipco worked closely with RedLine Solutions, a leading systems integrator, to choose a rugged device that will mobilize its workforce, reduce manual data entry and maximize return on investment. Janam’s XM5 was selected because it is powerful, easy-to-use and affordable.


  • Coastal Pipco has been in business for more than 50 years and maintains its inventory at its Oxnard, CA warehouse. Serving customers from a breadth of industries, including general construction, sewer and drainage, plumbing, manufacturing, facilities management, chemical injection and water and waste treatment, Coastal Pipco is using the XM5 mobile computer to better manage its pipe, valve and fitting inventory.
  • Coastal Pipco worked with Janam and RedLine Solutions to implement a solution that electronically tracks and records the movement of inventory within the warehouse. As a result, more than 97 percent of orders placed are completed and shipped on the same day.
  • Janam’s XM5 is equipped with the latest scanning technology for robust decoding of the hardest-to-read barcodes – enabling Coastal Pipco’s employees to fulfill more orders within an eight-hour shift.

Doug Lloyd, VP of Global Sales Operations, Janam Technologies
“A good inventory management strategy saves time and money, and increases efficiency and productivity. We’re thrilled to see the XM5 play a critical role in automating processes for Coastal Pipco – ultimately empowering the company to remain competitive with an advanced system to manage inventory.”

Patrick Davis, Receiving Coordinator, Coastal Pipco
“Janam’s XM5 mobile computer has increased productivity within our warehouse by nearly 60 percent. We now have real-time visibility into our inventory and have significantly reduced the time needed to identify the right product within our warehouse. The XM5 is one of the biggest contributors to our bottom line.”

Adrian Down, Marketing Director, RedLine Solutions
“RedLine helps many companies realize the benefits of increased efficiencies through real-time inventory management, and we know that the key to long-term project success starts with selecting the right partner. We are very pleased to have collaborated with Janam on this project, working together to provide Coastal Pipco with the optimum solution for their application, and supporting their on-going success.”
