CipherLab's Intelligent Order Entry (IOE), designed specifically for use by grocery and C-stores, ensures that shipping container space is maximized to resolve packing problems and reduce overall freight costs. When used in conjunction with CipherLab's handheld scanners, Intelligent Order Entry enables users to calculate the cubic footage and weight of bulk goods, thereby reducing wasted space in shipping containers. The IOE program also alerts users to discontinued items, the availability of substitute items, converts UPC codes to warehouse codes and displays backroom inventory during the order process.
IOE program user have a streamlined and efficient logistics system that takes into account the unique needs of maritime transportation...Now, customers know exactly how much container space will be required for each order. This enables us to proactively suggest adding or removing items to properly and completely fill a container, helping our members minimize their shipping costs."
The new Intelligent Order Entry can also assist grocers and retailers to more efficiently deliver goods by air, sea and rail. Although it is initially developed for use in port facilities, the concept of "cubing," or automatically calculating the cubic feet of container space, is the same for other forms of transportation...The company’s mobile computers and scanners are integrated into the networks of some of the world's best known logistics, retail, distribution, government installations and healthcare companies, helping them run more efficiently and effectively onsite and on the road. Operating worldwide, CipherLab is headquartered in Taipei, Taiwan with offices in China, Germany and the USA, and is publicly traded on the Taiwan stock exchange (Taiwan OTC: 6160).
