Forstinger uses BHT-1800 to digitalize their Processes

Forstinger is a large Austrian supplier for automotive accessories with 88 shops across the country. Additionally, customers profit from the service and maintenance in the company’s 86 workshops. For Forstinger, everything revolves around the topic of mobility – and now mobile data collection has been added to their fields of interest. Forstinger has optimized its processes in the shops and workshops with DENSO and partner Barcotec. DENSO’s BHT-1800 mobile computers and a Mobile Device Management (MDM) from Barcotec are used.

The BHT-1800 convinced Forstinger in regards to decisive features: haptics and ergonomics, connectivity to the existing ERP system, reading of codes, and after-sales service.

Thanks to the combination of the BHT-1800 from DENSO and the MDM from Barcotec, Forstinger’s IT team can access and centrally manage all devices in the shops and workshops as well as the logistics at any time. The resulting time savings are also part of the optimization of the existing processes at the automotive accessories’ supplier. The Barcotec cloud solution was even awarded the so-called “Ö-Cloud Quality Seal” by the Federal Ministry for Digital and Economic Affairs (BMDW).

Furthermore, Forstinger employees use the BHT-1800 in the shops for classic shop processes, such as inventories and reorders. In the workshops, the mobile computers are mainly used to record work and replenish spare parts.

Overall, they enable significantly more digitalization in the company and, as multifunctional devices, offer a long-term and sustainable investment protection. Everyone involved, both at Forstinger and Barcotec as well as DENSO WAVE EUROPE, is very happy about the good cooperation and the optimization of the processes.
