Medical Equipment Maker Stays Healthy With Storage Array

Time is money for home health-care device manufacturer Invacare International, both for its IT systems and on the factory floor. The company's manufacturing processes are so intertwined with information technology that application outages can bring assembly lines to a grinding halt.

The company's seven factories, which make devices such as wheelchairs, hospital beds and mobile respirators, depend on an ERP system for information, including stock availability, order status, invoices and shipments.
