See what others have had Samco Software do for them.
... It is doubtful that another company could have achieved this result ..." October 13, 2007 – A Major Retail Chain in Macau, SAR, China selected Samco Software Inc. of Surrey, BC, Canada, to supply their IT needs - hardware, software, training and support for their new retail project.
The network spread over three countries and was comprised of four retail stores totalling almost 20,000 square feet, two warehouses and two offices. After reviewing their options for local and international providers, Samco was selected as the only provider who could deliver a complete solution "out of the box" requiring little if any software application customization, integration and development. Samco was tasked to deliver an integrated, end to end solution consisting of servers, workstations and POS terminals with the Samco Power accounting applications including purchasing, WMS, POS GL/accounting, e-mail and general office applications. Linux was selected for the OS for security and cost reasons.
The greatest challenge was the timeline -- less than one month from contract signing to opening the doors. "Samco President, Barry Clarke visited the site and committed that the project could be accomplished if they were the chosen provider. They delivered on that promise, despite many obstacles occurring, and we did not really expect that any company could! . Samco came on site with a team of four, added local support with an additional network engineer and when the doors opened the system was working, and sales staff were ringing sales and taking three currencies from an opening crowd estimated at more than 85,000,” explained Ned Trippe, the Company's Regional Director for Asia.
Samco continues to provide full service for us -- local break and fix for hardware issues, database rationalization verification and training for the staff on all aspects of the system. "This was a truly remarkable accomplishment with an impossible timetable in a challenging market," quoted Trippe. "It is doubtful that another company could have achieved this result. It speaks to Samco's product and their willingness to get the job done, no matter the difficulty."
Titan Tire Reclamation Corporation is a first of its' kind pioneer site that holds a patented tire reclamation process. Using multiple reactors built specifically to perform the reduction of used mining vehicle tires into a spectrum of basic components that are completely recyclable with zero toxic emissions in this self-sustaining process.
The site was built North of Fort McMurray, an isolated area of Northern Alberta, without readily available land based Internet or phone service access. Internet was provided through a cutting edge technology low latency remote fiber fed source Gigabit Microwave Back haul, and distributed internally over an extremely low latency multi-layered internal Gigabit fiber optic network with over 200 acres of Zero Hop.
Securely behind the Kerio Control System, is the Ubiquiti Connectivity Wireless for VPN based scanners with local network centralized printing of all-weather labels for tire receiving, and all re-labeling steps to the final reclamation processing. Based on Kerio Operator, Samco provided and installed Yealink Multi-line VoIP phones, Video-phones and Paging System. Included is an Independent Gigabit based fiber optic security network for strategically placed IP based HD Internet cameras with app based smart phone access,
HID Card Based Security Access with employee photo and badging, Access Gate controls, near field RF ID Synel Time Clock, integration of low latency remote access of servers, and large screen monitors for control room aid, remote visual verification, and training and certification of operators. To allow for the extreme cold weather, using Honeywell Wireless Handheld Scanners, designed for working in Cold Storage facilities, Samco provided all networking, servers, VoIP hardware, expertise and installation for the site.
The Samco Power Accounting System was modified to track the tires from in-take to storage, shearing, cleaning and end-of-life destruction then to record Inventory of products resulting from the reclamation, including Steel, Carbon Black, Low Carbon oil and proof of destruction documents. The products then go into Inventory, ready for resale to industries who can make best use of them. Samco is now able to use this proprietary software and initial site as a benchmark for upcoming future sites.
