Nonin Medical, inventor of finger pulse oximetry, develops and distributes noninvasive medical monitoring solutions. As a global leader in noninvasive medical devices, Nonin Medical must comply with strict regulatory requirements in manufacturing. To meet those requirements and growing customer demand, Nonin implemented Microsoft Dynamics AX’s advanced warehouse module, WHS.

However, Nonin soon discovered that they could make even greater improvements to their warehouse efficiency by speeding data collection response times. “WHS has some really attractive features. We wanted to further leverage those capabilities with a next-level mobile data collection solution to add flexibility to our business, especially in distribution,” said Ben Newberg, Warehouse Manager at Nonin Medical.

Nonin sought a solution with certified integration to Microsoft Dynamics AX that could enhance the performance of their WHS investment. The company chose ScanWorkX, DSI’s mobile data collection solution that is Certified for Microsoft Dynamics AX (CfMD).

DSI ScanWorkX automates Nonin’s warehouse processes through 15 transactions executed on the company’s mobile device of choice. ScanWorkX extends WHS performance with asynchronous processing, which ensures crisp system response times for each transaction. By streamlining processes with mobile data collection, Nonin is now able to improve productivity, speed and accuracy on the shop floor.

Since deploying DSI ScanWorkX, Nonin has achieved the following results:

  • Reduced response times from minutes to < 1 sec
  • Increased speed and accuracy of data capture
  • Reduced shipping errors
  • Reduced labor costs to perform physical inventory

“We’ve been able to keep workers moving with the added functionality and speed mobile data collection brings to our warehouse operations,” said Rick Trask, Director of IT, Nonin Medical. “With DSI ScanWorkX, we found a solution that allows us to leverage the strength of advanced warehouse management in AX.”
