Oded Haner, CIO at Monster Cable Products Inc. in Brisbane, Calif., has spent the past year consolidating and automating the consumer electronics company's warehouses.
Using radio frequency identification tags and other technologies, the project has given Monster Cable a previously unthinkable view of inventory, shipping and orders. While also reducing the likelihood of error, Monster Cable has positioned itself with a wealth of new information that can be used to improve operations even further.
One CIO Decisions award judge wrote that Haner's own vision "expands past the doors of technology and into most aspects of the company." Haner, who began his IT career in Israel, has been CIO at Monster Cable for three years. He spoke about the project with SearchCIO-Midmarket.com.
