Extreme Wireless Network Enables Increased Efficiencies and Reduced Costs For Hawaii's Largest Produce Distributor

January 2, 2018
 
 

As the busiest produce company in paradise, every day Armstrong Produce supplies fresh fruits and vegetables to a wide range of customers throughout the islands of Hawaii – from local chefs to big box retailers. When Armstrong was mandated to implement a Warehouse Management System (WMS) to allow them to have more efficiency and accuracy in their operations, they knew they would have to first install a new wireless enterprise system. Armstrong Produce considered networking vendors, such as Cisco, HP, and Extreme, and considered multiple factors, such as cost, the relationship with the vendor, and product support. Ultimately, Armstrong selected an Extreme Networks wired and wireless solution that included Extreme Management.

Benefits of the new network solution include:

  • Comprehensive, enterprise-grade wired and wireless network solution
  • Enablement and support of Warehouse Management System (WMS)
  • Streamlined efficiency, increased productivity, and decreased errors of all shipping operations
  • Substantial cost-savings year-over-year

  • Robust enterprise network to support warehouse management system implementation
  • Deployment of new technology solutions
  • Warehouse-wide wireless coverage to support a paperless environment
