Getac tablets serve frozen pizza maker a large slice of efficiency, flexibility

See why Nestlé Wagner chose the rugged Getac A140 tablet for use at its headquarters in Nonnweiler, Germany.

Nestlé Wagner GmbH has selected the Getac A140 fully rugged tablet to digitize workflows and optimize productivity at its headquarters in Nonnweiler, Germany.

Producing around 350 million frozen food products annually, Nestlé Wagner is one of the largest manufacturers of frozen pizzas in Europe. Using the Getac A140, the company has achieved wide-ranging digitization of its production processes, increasing efficiency and allowing greater flexibility in day-to-day operations.

Nestlé Wagner chose the rugged Getac A140 due to its quality assurance benefits and the ability to roll it out extremely quickly to employees at the site, where it will complement existing laptops and special industrial computers.

In food manufacturing, it’s critical that no contaminants enter the food at any point. With deployment of the Getac A140, Nestlé has the confidence that if a tablet is accidentally dropped, it won’t break apart, ensuring production quality is maintained.

Using the tablets has also proved to be user-friendly. Not only are the devices easy to handle, but the 14-inch screen also offers enough space to clearly display key software applications. For example, all standard SAP information can be displayed on-screen and transactions can be carried out quickly using the A140’s stylus. Furthermore, the A140’s high degree of tolerance to temperature fluctuations means it can be used in a variety of different temperature zones.

“The A140 is our largest and most powerful tablet,” said Rowina Lee, vice president of Global Sales & Business Development Centre, Getac Technology Corp.

“Until today, we worked with a predominantly paper-based system, so that, for example, each change to the documentation of the numerous standards which food production requires had to be printed out and specially filed in a folder,” said Christian Joseph, team leader–Operational Excellence at Nestlé Wagner. “With the new digital workflows, employees on the production line can easily access and make changes to the documents directly on the tablet if required.”

The company can also use the A140’s integrated cameras to simplify and improve production. By allowing employees to take photographs or record videos directly on site, any potential difficulties occurring on the production line can be documented and distributed in real-time, ensuring they are resolved quickly.
