We supply the largest industrial, transport, logistics and retail companies in Europe with smart solutions for sophisticated data capturing processes: DPD, Deutsche Post, Hermes Logistik, Dachser, TNT Express, Tetra Pak, Saint-Gobain, Rheinenergie, Rewe, Edeka, Penny, Metro Systems and many more.
The Circlon | group can draw on more than 30 years' experience in mobile data capturing, allowing our customers to benefit from our expertise from hundreds of successfully implemented major projects. This is illustrated by the following solution concepts selected as examples, which we also implement correspondingly adapted for any other industry:
In this sector, we establish exceptionally large device pools with robust handheld solutions and extremely powerful software, fully adapted to the specific requirements of the project. This guarantees reliable location and shipment tracking in real time.
In the retail sector, we ensure that mobile devices can communicate reliably with merchandise management systems via a stable Wi-Fi network. What is more, we provide support with mobile POS systems and automated solutions for product supply and stock control.
We know the processes involved in the field of transport & logistics like no other provider on the market and have developed special solutions. Complete mobile systems that incorporate hardware, software, Wi-Fi and MDM solutions. In terms of the hardware – handhelds, mobile scanners and printers, for example – we work together with experienced manufacturers such as Zebra Technologies, Honeywell and Casio. The Circlon | group is the only provider in Germany, who can manage a rollout of in excess of 20,000 devices.
The Circlon | group has equipped 18,200 Hermes drivers with new GPRS-based scanners. We have provided the extremely robust scanners with a mobile function. The special software configuration with individual applications enables each individual package to be tracked and traced in real time. It has been possible to optimise process workflows and to greatly reduce the number of hardware breakdowns.
We have modernised the entire device pool of the logistics giant DPD with 12,000 mobile data capturing devices. We took care of everything for our customer from the selection to the procurement through to the rollout in record time. DPD uses our specially developed complete solution for its new generation of mobile computers. Thanks to the Circlon mobile life cycle management system, it has been possible to increase the cost-effectiveness and efficiency of the device pools significantly.
We develop complete in-store and backend solutions for the retail sector. The requirements here are extremely complex – highly user-friendly mobile solutions for use in warehouse logistics and on the sales floor are important. This is why we use the most reliable and stable Wi-Fi technology, which enables us to achieve fail-safe communication of the mobile devices with the merchandise management system. Also for retail companies with very large device pools, we develop customised and flexible solutions. Furthermore, in the retail sector, the Circlon | group establishes automated solutions for the rapid supply of goods and end-to-end stock control.
Our long-standing customer Metro Logistics has a range of around 25,000 fresh, deep-frozen and dry products. The Circlon | group was able to structure the company's extremely complex logistics processes considerably more efficiently and reliably. By way of illustration, on the basis of the mobile computing framework, we implemented a complete digital shipment tracking facility for the customer with integrated cold chain monitoring. All the cargo spaces have been equipped with temperature sensors and door sensors. RFID technology on doors and roller shutters has been used to implement an efficient means of anti-theft protection.
In the central logistics hubs of Gebr. Heinemann, we have established an area-wide Wi-Fi network – in particular for ensuring the reliable communication of the order picking equipment with the merchandise management system. Thanks to the high stability and availability of the Wi-Fi network, our customer benefits from smooth and more efficient logistics operations.
We improve the production and merchandise management in addition to the stock and warehouse management. For example, we establish a powerful data capturing system with online connection for end-to-end production monitoring.
In the area of field service, we provide solutions that are specially tailored to the needs of the respective industry. From the telecommunications industry to healthcare and real estate management, we improve work processes and increase the service productivity of your company.
Highly practical solutions are essential for the stock and warehouse management in the production department. This is where the Circlon | group offers customised handheld solutions with a software configuration that caters to the most exacting practical demands. This permits the end-to-end monitoring and control of production flows.
We have helped Saint-Gobain Deutsche Glas implement a new data capturing system for its production, including an online connection. This company uses mobile scanner devices to monitor and control its production of glass panels. The new solution from the Circlon | group allows the company to manage its monitoring process more efficiently.
Depending on the industry, we develop different measures and supply the latest devices, which are tailored precisely to the requirements of the industry. Our handheld solutions are robust and application-oriented, they feature a large display (also as tablet PCs) and a high computing power. And with the right software, they meet all of the specific requirements that take priority in the fields of production, warehousing and field service.
Wir von der Circlon I group unterstützen den Flughafen Köln/Bonn dabei, seine Logistikprozesse stetig zu optimieren. Dazu gehört die Ausstattung mit 150 Handhelds inklusive unserer unkomplizierten Reparaturmanagementlösung.
All the solutions the Circlon | group has devised are also possible and can be customised to other industries. By way of example, we have already implemented customised system solutions for the fields of healthcare, pharmaceutical wholesale, market research, automotive and aerospace industry, energy supply and public trading that are adapted to the specific needs of the respective industry.
For Linde Gas Austria, a leading manufacturer and supplier of medical gases, we have implemented a solution for delivery-round-optimised patient care with data synchronisation by GPRS for a mobile data capturing device.
fht Flüssiggas Handel & Transport is a nationwide supplier of DIN-compliant liquefied gases to private households, trade, industry and LPG petrol stations. The Circlon | group has developed a solution for handhelds, which ensures end-to-end documentation of the shipment and provides the drivers with an overview of all the technical data (temperature, fill level).
On the basis of our decades of experience and expertise, we can develop practical solutions for every industry in which mobile data capturing plays a central role. This enables our customers to benefit from higher efficiency and productivity in their process chain.
