Mission Linen Supply Selects DecisionPoint Systems To Build Comprehensive Paperless, Mobile Customer Interface Program
IRVINE, Calif., — DecisionPoint Systems, Inc.
(OTCBB: DPSI), a leading provider and integrator of Enterprise Mobility and
Wireless Applications, announced today the launch of a pilot program to create
and install a comprehensive paperless mobile customer interface solution for
Mission Linen Supply. The custom-built, end-to-end enterprise program will
outfit all of Mission Linen’s drivers, dispatchers and office support personnel
with mobile devices that automate and replace their current paper-based system
for all their operations including deliveries, invoicing, ordering, real-time
communications and customer support.
The pilot program, the second part of a multi-phase, three-year contract, will
cover the approximately 20 industrial and commercial routes operated from Santa
Barbara, CA, the corporate base of privately-held Mission Linen Supply. Mission
Linen Supply provides rental products, services and supplies to hospitality,
medical and industrial businesses in California, Arizona, Texas, New Mexico
As part of the program all Mission Supply drivers will be outfitted with a
complete set of hardware including a hand-held mobile computer tablet with an
Android operating system that has been “ruggedized” for the kinds of intensive
field work they will be performing. The end result will mean much faster and
more precise operations for Mission Linen including more accurate invoicing,
better inventory control, better planning and dispatching, immediate wireless
connectivity and better real-time customer relations, noted Karl Willig,
President and Chief Executive Officer of Mission Linen Supply.
“Our goal is to improve our operations and deliver quicker, more accurate and
less time- consuming products and services to all our clients throughout the
Southwestern region of the U.S.,” Willig said. “We are proud of our thorough
customer service orientation, and we believe the wireless, paperless
DecisionPoint system will help us achieve these goals. We selected DecisionPoint
because we were impressed with the products and services they have created for
other route-based businesses.”
DecisionPoint Systems provides the kinds of wireless technologies that enable
companies like Mission Linen Supply to automate their enterprise and turn their
employee base into a modern, wireless mobile workforce, noted DecisionPoint CEO
Nicholas R. Toms.
“This is the type of project that is a natural fit for all our core
competencies, including mobile computing, empowering mobile workers and
leveraging the expertise DecisionPoint has gained through our experience working
in the mobile marketplace,” Toms said. “We are building a cross-platform
development solution for the entire Mission Linen operation. In the end our
program will give them all the tools to create a modern mobile workforce, plus
the flexibility to build their operations in the future as they expand. We are
excited about working for Mission Linen Supply and look forward to delivering
the value our technologies offers them.”
