JCD uses mobile devices for proof of delivery
Sundays are hectic for service operators at JCDecaux, a worldwide outdoor advertising company. Due to the fact that all posters have to be replaced in just a few hours all over Sweden, the company is already operating at maximum capacity while the public are still waiting for their work week to begin. JCDecaux utilizes Optiscan´s Abakus FieldWork, a sophisticated mobile work management system, to provide their customer with proof of posting, showing that the ads have been posted when promised and as agreed. As confirmation of the delivery the service operators take a photo of the stand with their mobile device, Intermec CN70 hand held computer. The photo is then uploaded on a digital map with a time stamp. All this is done wirelessly right after the poster is mounted to the stand.
Optiscan has signed a deal for Abakus FieldWork with Lumon Oy. The contract covers all Lumon Group companies in Europe. Previously, in 2011, Lumon has adopted AbakusWMS for their factory and warehouse operations in Kouvola, South-East Finland.
Lumon is an international company focused on the sale, production and installation of balcony facade and terrace products: balcony glazings, frameless glass curtains, and balustrades. Turnover in 2011 amounted to 71 million euros, of which 20 M€ was derived from export. Lumon has about 600 people on its payroll of which about 150 are mobile workers in Finland (www.lumon.com).

Espoo City Library
Optiscan has signed a deal with the city library of Espoo City for barcode and anti-theft labels for library material. City library uses the labels for individualizing and protection of the materials (books, recordings etc.). Depending on the need of protection of the material, the library uses different types of barcodes and anti-theft labels.
The experts of Espoo city library tested the labels thoroughly prior to supplier selection. Comparison was done with three types of labels: barcode label without magnetization, barcode label with magnetization and integrated doubled alarm band with protective film. Labels went under strict endurance testing and readability + alarm tests. One important factor with the integrated doubled alarm string was that the string must not cause any interference in a player when attached to a CD or a DVD disk.
University of Helsinki - The Hjelt Institute
Optiscan has signed a deal with pathology departments of the Hjelt Institute in Helsinki University (Helsingin yliopisto, Hjelt-instituutti) and Central Finland Health Care District (Keski-Suomen sairaanhoitopiiri).

Before getting approval the labels went through a very strict analysis and testing.
The contract with The Central Finland pathology department consists of the same Motorola HC readers and Bartender software for label design and printing.
