When it comes to warehousing and distribution, the wireless network is everything. Think about it. Not one piece of product moves into, through, or out of a warehouse or distribution center without being accounted for – that is, without being “touched” by a wireless computing device of some kind. So, it stands to reason that a warehousing and distribution facility’s wireless network had better be healthy and robust – and functioning like a charm. No wireless consulting firm knows that better than Velaspan. With experience with customers that have upwards of a hundred facilities nationwide, let’s just say we’ve been “around the warehouse” more than a few times.
So, exactly how does a large warehouse and distribution operation ensure that they have the best, most effective wireless network to meet their needs – especially when they don’t have a particularly strong IT presence at their sites? Numerous companies bring their challenges to Velaspan, because we work with them, day in and day out, to turn those challenges into solutions.
Whether they are modifying or upgrading an existing wireless network, radically changing an existing facility’s physical configuration, or building a new warehouse, we approach the project with the same thoughtful process – the one we’ve proven delivers the optimum solution, time and again.
We Determine the Customer’s Business Requirements
What do they want to accomplish? What type of equipment do they use? What type of products are they trying to move? How are those products stored in the warehouse? How are they moved from place to place and in and out of the facility? What is the size and configuration of the building? Where is the network traffic being routed to? Whatever relevant information there is to know, we’ll identify it!
We Determine the Customer’s System Requirements
Once the business requirements are clearly defined, we are able to identify their network’s system requirements. We’ll know the type of system it will take to deliver the wireless solution that truly works for that site.
We Design the System
Now we’re ready to design the wireless system that will meet both their business and technical requirements.
We Implement the System
We perform a thorough, fully documented site survey that will inform the exact placement of every wireless access point in the warehouse. We’re now ready for installation and system validation.
We’ll Provide Ongoing Support
We’re there for the customer for the long haul – to provide network monitoring, and respond as needs change, as new technology and products become available, as problems arise. Simply put, we offer our services as their “Chief Mobility Officer!”
While the challenges of putting in place a wireless network in an existing warehouse or a brand new building can seem as big as the facility itself, the Velaspan approach to providing manageable, successful solutions has a way of cutting those challenges down to size.
If you would like more information about how Velaspan can help you have the highest performing, most reliable, secure, and manageable network connectivity, take the solutions first step. Because individualized solutions are all we do.
