The Customer

Stemple Creek Ranch is a family owned cattle ranch that raises 100% grass-fed beef and lamb in Marin County, CA. They have a diverse set of clientele, selling directly to customers, restaurants, butcher shops and grocery stores. With over 100 years of experience on the same ranch, Stemple Creek Ranch tries covering all of its customers' needs, providing peace of mind with sustainable farming practices, all natural meats, as well as succulent recipes to go along with their locally grown beef and lamb.


The Challenge

A ranch needs to track sales and products every day. With multiple pastures of cattle and sheep to maintain, proper tracking of supplies and meats are essential for Stemple Creek Ranch's industry. They needed a proper POS system to streamline their productivity and a scanner that was compatible with their inventory system’s software.


The Socket Mobile Solution

Prior to using the scanner, Stemple Ranch tracked inventory by hand. But they quickly grew out of that form of tracking as their business’ demands expanded. They needed something more advanced to maintain their inventory.

Stemple Creek Ranch selected the model CHS 7Pi – a durable laser scanner that provides extended reach and flexible scanning abilities.

“Helps tremendously with tracking sales and inventory.” – Josh Cowden, inventory management

The Results 

The socket mobile scanner was selected for inventory purposes. Using the Socket Mobile solution enables Stemple Creek Ranch to scan their supplies to an online platform, which enables them to review their inventory remotely.

 “Customer service from the Socket Mobile team has been terrific. I had minor issues with 2 of my handhelds scanners (after long-term use) and they replaced them immediately. I use the scanners daily to track meat inventory and sales. I recommend these units to anyone looking for a durable yet light weight device that syncs well with iPads and iPhones.”
