American Nutrition Improves Productivity by 20% with Janam Rugged Mobile Computers

Janam’s XG3-ER gun-shaped, rugged mobile device increases visibility into inventory and process control

October 11, 2018

Janam Technologies LLC, a leading provider of rugged mobile computers that scan barcodes and communicate wirelessly, announced today that American Nutrition, a leading manufacturer of pet food and treats for branded companies and retailers, is using XG3-ER gun-shaped, rugged mobile computers from Janam to improve operations across its three world-class facilities.

In search for a warehouse management solution (WMS) that could connect their existing lot tracking, process control and shipping software together under one umbrella, American Nutrition worked closely with Barcodes to identify and deploy the mobile computer best suited to meet their business needs. Janam’s XG3-ER was selected because of its ability to improve supply chain visibility, increase employee productivity and reliably run American Nutrition’s WMS.


  • American Nutrition has been in business for more than 45 years and sought a device with the power and performance to streamline processes and add a layer of accountability to their methods. Requirements included long-range scanning, touch screen and keypad functionality and an open operating system to future proof their operations.
  • American Nutrition deployed Janam’s XG3-ER to gain access to business-critical data in real time, eliminate human error associated with memorizing product and inventory information and enable workers to perform tasks more efficiently.
  • Equipped with the powerful EX25 near/far imager, the XG3-ER reads barcodes from 6 inches to more than 50 feet away, effectively eliminating the challenges American Nutrition encountered when scanning items on overhead storage racks.

Harry B Lerner, CEO, Janam Technologies
“Together with Barcodes, Janam provides solutions that help organizations gain actionable insight into their business processes. Built specifically for companies that require extended-range scanning, Janam’s XG3-ER rugged mobile computer is optimized for scan-intensive, extended-shift use and unlocks a wealth of point-of-activity information to companies like American Nutrition.”

Jim Dalpias, Manufacturing Information Systems Manager, American Nutrition
“With a mission to consistently produce high-quality pet food, it is imperative that we meet performance metrics. The search for a rugged handheld with a non-windows OS led us to Janam. The XG3-ER has allowed us to use modern apps and data techniques, enabling us to exceed goals by increasing employee productivity and efficiency by 20 percent in a very short amount of time.”

Alyce Miller, Strategic Account Manager, Barcodes
“Janam’s broad mobile computer portfolio, helpful customer service and knowledgeable technical support enables us to be the best VAR in the industry, serve as trusted advisors and build lasting nimble solutions for our customers’ current and future projects.”
