Shinola: Manufacturing Company Upgrades Operating System and Improves Productivity
Shinola is a design and manufacturing company with operations in Detroit, Michigan. The company needed an advanced technology solution that would address its main business challenges - mobility, gaining a competitive edge, and point-of-sale presentations. In particular, Shinola needed a portable device that it could use to demonstrate its product line to potential buyers. In April 2012, three Shinola employees began using tablets running the Windows 8 Pro operating system. The company plans to use the tablets for shipping and receiving, inventory control, point-of-sales discussions, and monitoring plant security cameras. Shinola benefits from an intuitive interface, robust functionality, and near-seamless mobility.
