New Infinite Peripherals™ Headquarters Utilizes Its Own Linea Pro® and Infinea Tab™ to Streamline Warehouse Operations

To accommodate increasing market demand, Infinite
Peripherals, Inc. (IPC), the leading developer of mobile
point-of-sale (mPOS) devices, recently opened a new, larger headquarters
in Elk Grove Village, Ill. Triple the size of its former facility at
25,000 square feet, the new space includes an expansive warehouse where
IPC has implemented its own Linea
Pro and Infinea
Tab handheld devices to maximize operational efficiency.
As more leading U.S. companies adopt mPOS and enhance Apple®'s iOS
devices with IPC’s first-to-market iOS peripheral barcode scanners and
magnetic stripe readers, IPC has rapidly expanded, outgrowing its
warehouse and internal data systems to manage continually increasing
inventory and order flow.
“After six years in our old facility, we are thrilled to accommodate
growing needs and capitalize on new opportunities with our new
headquarters,” said Andrew Graham, president and co-founder of IPC. “As
IPC enters new markets beyond retail, including healthcare, medical,
warehouse and logistics, we are better equipped to maximize our outreach
and optimize our service.”
State-of-the Art Warehouse Technology
In the warehouse, IPC utilizes its Linea Pro and Infinea Tab devices,
which include a barcode scanner, attach to an iPod touch® or iPad®,
respectively, and run on custom software to handle inventory receipt,
organization and picking; labeling (using IPC’s DPP-450
mobile printer) and shipping; serial number tracking; quality control
Replacing its previous paper-based system, the new mobile operational
process has proven to be significantly faster and more accurate, which
results in greater productivity to meet higher demand for products.
In addition to expediting order fulfillment, the new facility also
features a sleek, forward-thinking look that recently earned a RED Award
from the Illinois Chapter of the International Interior Design
Association (IIDA) for exemplary design in the category of Contract
Office – Small. Built from raw space, the open area offices and
mezzanine invite collaboration and share abundant natural lighting and
industrial gray walls with bold red and white accents. Glass panels in
the workspaces serve as writable surfaces to enhance communication.
RED Award winners were selected by a panel of judges that reviewed
nearly 100 entries from more than three dozen Illinois-based design
firms and designers. NELSON Chicago designed IPC’s facility.
Built for Convenience
Located at 2312 Touhy Ave. in an industrial park, the new IPC
headquarters is minutes from O’Hare International Airport, through which
most of the company’s products are shipped, as well as easily accessible
from the downtown Chicago area, a major Midwest business hub.

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not.

Fact is, enterprises have significant legacy voice infrastructure that’s costly to replace with pure IP solutions. How can we bring this analog infrastructure into our shiny new cloud applications? There are proven methods to bind both legacy voice applications and traditional PSTN audio into cloud-based applications and services at a carrier scale. Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies.

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
