Gumro and Associates, a Rochester, MI based logistics solutions company, announced the launch of its Accurate Scanning Technology® Application. The smart phone app, which is designed to provide state of the art scanning and data collection with the convenience and cost effectiveness of a smart phone, is the first of its kind in the industry. The application goes beyond just reading a bar code and instead is able to gather important data for reporting and proof of deliveries. Accurate Scanning Technology® even has the ability to capture signatures and credit card information for payment. “We saw a need in the industry to provide companies with a solution that would allow them to collect the data they need at a price that was not astronomical,” said Jim Gumro President and CEO, Gumro and Associates. “Accurate Scanning Technology® does just that. The iPhone app is able to do what conventional hand held scanners can for a fraction of the price. In addition, it is easy to use and is robust enough to stand up to the needs of everyday use in the supply chain demands and beyond. We feel we have truly cleared the path to a new era of how scanning technology will work in any environment.” The application, which is currently available for iPhone and iTouch is far more cost effective than traditional hand held scanners which run on average $1,500 to $2,000 per unit. “This product allows us to achieve a faster means of logging and tracking which provides us a huge advantage every day,” said Robert Pelachyk, President and CEO of Heller Machine Tool a customer of Gumro and Associates and user of Accurate Scanning Technology. “Since we’ve been involved with Gumro and Associates we’ve been able to not only save a lot of money but their products are state of the art and they are always staying ahead in the industry.” The patent pending application was recently shown at the NASSTRAC Trade Show in Orlando Florida, 2012 and received rave reviews from industry experts citing the speed of data transfer, signature capture, capability to take pictures of damaged product and reasonable pricing all as major assets to the product which is pioneering the next generation of supply chain solutions. Accurate Scanning Technology® can be utilized easily across multiple verticals such as the medical and retail industries.
