PHS Teacrate introduces barcode scanning system

Mar 17, 2015
Facilities managers and removal companies will no longer struggle with locating crates across multiple locations following the introduction of barcode scanning technology by crate rental provider, PHS Teacrate.

The new technology has been introduced as part of the company’s ongoing plans to improve the information and feedback provided to its clients to allow better crate management.

Barcode scanning will enable facilities managers and removal companies to have effective tracking and traceability information at their fingertips on the delivery and collection of crates and which job they were allocated to. Future development plans include the ability to extend this traceability into the department they were allocated to. The new system follows the company’s introduction of handheld personal digital assistants (PDAs) in 2014, that provide real-time information for its office removals operation. 

Sales Director, Patrick Sheehy said, “Barcode scanning will allow PHS Teacrate to capture where the crate has come from and exactly which job it was used for. For example when working with a large facilities management organisation that required different deliveries to various departments, we could potentially highlight which departments they came from when we collected the crates. This gives an extra layer of traceability and as we develop the system further customers will get more and more control.”
