Wormald, a child company of Tyco International Ltd., specialises in fire safety products and services including testing and refurbishing over 2500 fire extinguishers per month in Queensland alone.
Wormald brings the fire extinguishers to a central warehouse to test and refurbish, or replace them. They realized they were wasting time and effort trying to track all incoming and outgoing extinguishers using an outmoded paper based system. What Wormald needed was a way to track the status of all those extinguishers to see exactly how many extinguishers they had in each stage of testing at all times to cut unnecessary paper costs and boost the efficiency of their services.
