MKB Company Case Study
MKB Company is a manufacturing company that specializes in erosion control products. They ship their products across the country and from multiple locations, which involves a lot of paperwork such as bills of lading, warehouse transfers, receipts, and delivery paperwork with signatures.
PhotoTag is an easy, cost-effective photo documentation application that allows businesses to keep a visual record of the quality of their products. PhotoTag allows users to quickly scan a barcode, such as a work order, and capture images of products or assemblies. Users can label and filter photos by barcode numbers, serial numbers, work orders, location, or any other relevant data. Photos are automatically uploaded to the cloud for review and corrective action.
Paperwork management before PhotoTag
Prior to using PhotoTag, MKB had to manually sort and organize paperwork, which was time-consuming and prone to errors. Field personnel would frequently call to check on the status of their orders. Receipts would be mailed to the accounting department resulting in delays on reimbursements or payments, and were occasionally misplaced.
MKB Company integrated PhotoTag into their operations to streamline their paperwork management and to communicate proof of shipment, payment or delivery. With PhotoTag, team members capture photos of their paperwork and tag them with unique numbers, such as bill of lading numbers or shipment location. By allowing delivery drivers or field personnel to associate these unique numbers with their photos, they can easily locate and organize paperwork related to a specific shipment, eliminating the need to search through stacks of physical documents.
MKB Company has also found PhotoTag's centralized photo storage system to be a big advantage. Since all photos are automatically uploaded to the secure PhotoTag cloud server, users don’t need to manually email or share photos, or physically mail the receipts. This streamlined process not only saves time but also ensures seamless accessibility to photos from anywhere, at any time, providing unparalleled convenience and efficiency for MKB Company's operations..
By using PhotoTag to organize their paperwork, MKB Company has experienced significant time savings and improved team communication. They highly recommend it to other manufacturing companies who need to manage large amounts of paperwork with product deliveries.
