  12. 12. Advantage of WebXpress Mobility architecture • The application talks DIRECTLY to web-server over GPRS or Wi-Fi • There is NO MIDDLEWARE at the warehouse- thus no server, no maintenance, no downtime • The application uses Web-services over Wi-Fi or GPRS over HTTP, thus not requiring special firewall settings needed for an FTP or an SQL query. • This also does away with docking, sync partnerships etc. • The application retrieves data from web BUT then works offline. ALL validations of a given form are carried out within the device.

  34. 34. WebXpress Bar Coding Solution
  35. 35. Solution • WebXpress helps you to manage entire work flow using Bar Coding • Every package is assigned a Unique Barcode Identification or UBI • UBI sticker can be pre-printed or can be generated using WebXpress Barcode Generation utility • All arrival and departure counting are then done using bar code scan, replacing manual counting of boxes • Any shortage or extra is indicated by WebXpress system by flashing the error • This reduces instances of misrouting and shortages • Also, at any point of time the UBI number can provide the details of the box such as docket number, origin, destination, consignor and consignee etc.
  36. 36. Solution Requirements • Option 1: Pre-printed barcode stickers – Series controlled barcode stationery – Bar code readers at booking location, hubs and delivery location – WebXpress bar code management module • Option 2: WebXpress generated barcode stickers – WebXpress barcode generation utility – Barcode printer to print labels – Bar code readers at booking location, hubs and delivery location – WebXpress bar code management module
  37. 37. Solution Option Comparison Option 1: Pre-printer labels • No need to deploy bar code printers • Series control required on bar code labels • User needs to enter exact range of labels used at the time of docket entry • User has to manually write docket number, from-to, no. • Useful when we have less number of packages and printing is not feasible at customer location Option 2: WebXpress generated labels • Bar code label printer required at point of generation of labels • No series management required as numbers are system generated • No need to enter data as system generated numbers after docket entry • Not required • Used for high-volume regular customers where onsite facilities are justified
  38. 38. Bar code label format • This is example of bar code label generated from WebXpress • As can be noticed system prints all information such as docket number, packages, bar code, locations etc. • This is printed using a thermal printer attached to a PC/laptop • Labels are generated on docket entry ABC Logistics info@abclogistics.com Call: 1 800 7650
  39. 39. Device requirements: Thermal Printer • Option 1: PC based printer – Customer can deploy a standard high-output bar code printer – This printer will be connected to a PC/laptop – User will enter docket in WebXpress and then print labels using WebXpress bar code printing utility • Option 2: Bluetooth Printer – In this case, user will use a mobile barcode printer – This will be connected to a PC/laptop with bluetooth connectivity – User will enter docket in WebXpress and then print labels using WebXpress bar code printing utility
  40. 40. Printer Option Comparison Option 1: PC based printer • Used for high volume printing • Needs connection to PC/laptop • Needs electricity connection • Lower cost per print • Not mobile- fixed to a desk Option 2: Bluetooth printer • Used for less number of prints • Connects wirelessly to HHT or a PC/laptop • Works on a battery • Higher cost per print • Mobile and can be taken to any location
  41. 41. Barcode reader option Comparison Option 1: PC based printer Option 2: Bluetooth Printer Price range: Rs. 7000-14000 Price range: Rs. 35000-85000
  42. 42. Device requirements: Barcode reader • Option 1: Wired reader – Customer can deploy a barcode reader connected to a PC or a laptop – In such a case, wired barcode reader or a bluetooth barcode reader will be used • Option 2: Hand Held Terminal (HHT) – Customer can also deploy a handheld terminal for reading barcodes directly into WebXpress application – This will require a Hand Held Terminal with Wi-Fi/GPRS connectivity and Windows Mobile/CE operating system – This will also require installation of WebXpress HHT solution into the device – The hub/branch also needs to be Wi-Fi enabled
  43. 43. Barcode reader option Comparison Option 1: Wired reader • Bar code reader connected to a PC/laptop • As length of wire is limited, scanning workstation needs to be near to loading/off loading gate • WebXpress application on PC should be running and online to use the system • Less flexibility for movement of reader. Typically suitable for small to medium boxes • Ideally used on a conveyer belt Option 2: Hand Held Terminal • Independent terminal used by an operator. Connected using Wi- Fi/GPRS • As this is a wireless device, it can be taken to any area in hub • Application is loaded on HHT and does not require online connectivity while scanning. Requires connectivity at start and end of each activity • High flexibility to user for scanning a box. Suitable for all types of loads, all weights • Ideally used for high volume activity over a large area
