“I remembered the struggle to justify developing barcode scanning to optimize our shop floor with Fujitsu Glovia, Inc. in mid-2019,” said Rommel Bayola, Director of Digital Transformation at AirBorn Corporation. As implementation proceeded, those struggles disappeared.
“A year later, we are presenting Barcode Scanning in Fujitsu Glovia’s Virtual Customer Event,” Bayola said. “Due to our team’s renewed synergy, we can very effectively produce a solution that will not only fit AirBorn’s requirements but that will also help other companies with similar Shop Floor optimization challenges.”
Bayola attributed their success to the combined efforts of Fujitsu Glovia and AirBorn. “Fujitsu Glovia’s commitment to the success of their customers exceeded expectations. Kudos to Fujitsu Glovia and the AirBorn team.”
