Success Stories - Surteco UK


Last year Surteco UK were asked to update their forklift truck computers to DLoG units by their German head office. After looking for DLoG partners in the UK, Surteco came across Barcode-IT via a web search and contacted them based on their previous experience with DLoG installations knowledge of fork truck mounted computers.

Surteco UK had been using old Intermec terminals on their forklift trucks but due to the success of the installation of DLoG mobile computers at their Head Office in Germany, they were advised to purchase new DLoG mobile computers when updating their hardware. As well as updating their forklift truck computers, Surteco needed to replace the Intermec handheld scanners that were attached to the forklift truck terminals as they kept mis-scanning, which forced operators to leave their forklift in order to scan the barcodes plus the leads from the corded scanners became tangled during use.


Barcode-IT recommended the DLoG MTC6/10 mobile computer as the best fit for Surteco's application and gave them the latest cordless Datalogic PowerScan to test alongside it, as it excels at scanning small barcodes at long range and the patented Green Spot technology helps to show when a scan has been successfully completed. The Datalogic PowerScan contains a powerful scan engine and during testing, operators found that they could easily scan barcodes from the forklift truck, eliminating the need to leave the forklift truck to scan barcodes entirely.


"After a recommendation from our parent company in Germany, we opted for DLoG mobile computers and Datalogic PowerScan barcode scanners. We required a product that was rugged, cost effective and able to accommodate our new software upgrade. Barcode-IT came up with the perfect DLoG MTC 6/10 configuration for our needs and helped us install them properly."

As well as the DLoG mobile computers and Datalogic scanners, Barcode-IT assisted Surteco in enhancing their wireless network with the addition of some new Cisco wireless access points to their warehouse following a detailed site survey. Forklift operators are now able to travel anywhere within the warehouse, safe in the knowledge that they can communicate with the host system wherever they are.
