Complete Equipment Installations
Vision Systems equipment manufacturer needed extra staff for equipment installations
TST worked with the manufacturer to create a step by step installation guide for the field engineers. The Field engineers were also trained by working alongside the manufacturers staff at several installations. These installations include building tunnels over the conveyer systems, installing vision camera systems, as well as other equipment. The typical installations can take one to two weeks. TST staff continue to install new systems as needed.
Swapping of Wireless Routers
Large Retailer needed assistance in swapping out equipment at each of their retail locations
A large retailer wanted to switch their 400 stores from WIFI to dedicated Sprint wireless internet. Originally, they had their retail store personnel do the equipment swap but found it too complex for most store personnel. TST offered trained field engineers to go on site and remove the old hardware and install the new wireless hardware, magic boxes, routers and sim cards at each store location. Working with the retailer, TST created a detailed installation guide for the field technicians so that each site would be consistent. The installation included the equipment installation and testing for speed and coverage.
Lithium Battery Upgrade Replacement for Mobile Powered Workstations
Mobile workstation manufacturer needed select lithium batteries replaced at customer’s site
A mobile powered workstations manufacturer had select number of models that had been sold but needed the integrated lithium battery pack to be replaced. These batteries can weigh over 40 pounds and are built into the workstations so not easy to replace. The manufacturer did not want the customers to have to replace the batteries. TST was able to provide the staffing to go onsite at each customer location and replace the batteries, test them and send the defective ones back.
PC and Printer Upgrades
Need for multiple state coverage and quick turnaround
Upgrades of software, configuration and testing for both PCs and printers for multiple customers. Projects have lasted a few days to a few weeks.
