Inventory Scanning

Inventory Scanning is designed to work with state-of-the-art handheld terminal scanners, either through WiFi or over the mobile network

Inventory Scanning is a web application that is directly connected to the back-end database. This means that it works in real time and sees and processes Inventory in real time. The major functions for inventory scanning are stocktaking, goods receipting, stock transfers and stock requisitions.

Stocktaking

Remove all the hassle and errors with paper-based stock takes. Simply use the scanner to go down the shelves and scan the products that need to be counted. You can then either scan individual products or manually enter the quantity of the scanned product. Scanning an “outer” barcode will automatically count the box quantity inside.

The scanner also supports multiple “count points”, where the same stock items is counted at different points/places within the one warehouse or complex.

Goods Receipting

What could be simpler than walking up to a pallet of delivered goods and scanning them in against your purchase orders1. The items are confirmed, matched against purchase orders and saved in Inventory ready to be sold.

If an item is on more than one purchase order it will present the list and ask you to choose one. It will then roll onto subsequent purchase orders if there are more items delivered than was required on the first purchase order.

If an item is not on any purchase orders, or it’s not in Inventory, it will be rejected with an audible warning. If an item is over supplied, an audible warning will also be heard, and a choice will be given whether to accept the over quantity or not.

Once all the items have been scanned, you can see a summary on the screen before accepting the results.

Simple, quick and accurate.

Stock Transfers

This is a great way of keeping track, or replenishing stock, in mobile vans. Each van is its own mini store. When the van comes into the main warehouse, the store-man can simply scan the required items, then book them out to the relevant van.

The items in the van are then tracked and recorded when sold or used. This could be done using our Job Mobile application, which is designed to run on mobile phones, or through any of our other applications that sell or use stock, e.g. Mobile Point of Sale.

Stock Requisitions

In manufacturing environments recording what stock is used as part of the manufacturing process is essential. Having an easy and efficient way of capturing this information is key to doing this successfully.

This function allows you to scan any number of products, optionally entering a quantity, then committing them to a job or general expense code.

In addition to these major functions, you can use the scanner at any time to enquire on a stock item. Scanned items display the image for confirmation, which you can zoom into, it also displays various quantities, and allows you to see a list of outstanding sales orders.
