Barcoding is the foundation of a good warehousing and distribution system.
Barcode scanned can instantly update stock databases and create outgoing shipping manifests and validate incoming manifests.
With the now commonplace portable long range scanners the scanning operation is often done out of visual range from the computer system. This can create problems for the operator who conventionally relies on a good scan / bad scan sound to indicate whether the scan is successful or not.
In our systems the host computer processes the scan and conveys the result through voice technology.
"You have scanned 25 portable phones out of stock and have assigned them for delivery to Great & Company in Liverpool. John Brown has been notified by email of the impending delivery."
This is just 1 example of how we are turning barcoding into an interactive operation - dramatically changing the way companies manage inventry and distribution.
