MyInventory Scanner

The MyInventory Mobile Scanner solution is a rugged inventory management tool that contains a keypad and small screen.  This portable MyEBMS solution will process shipping, receiving, and inventory management including quantity adjustments.  An intuitive interface seamlessly integrates this remote, WiFi enabled, hand-held device directly with the EBMS data.  The device also features product count processing to allow cycle counting or end of year count adjustments.  Make product tracking and ordering a snap using a built in barcode scanner.  Inventory management has never been this fast and easy!

An alternative Socket Mobile portable scanner can also be connected with an iphone or android phone or tablet using a bluetooth connection.

Scenario:  A food distributor uses the MyInventory Scanner to fulfill orders within the product warehouse.  A pick list is printed within the warehouse as soon as the order is entered into EBMS which prompts the warehouse staff to pull the order.  The product is sorted based on the warehouse location along with a barcode which identifies the customer’s order.  Products are scanned and marked shipped as they are picked and placed on a staging pallet.  The scanner is used to verify the correct product and quantity is being pulled and adjusts inventory in real time.  The systematic process used to fulfill orders and manage inventory is important to the efficiency and accuracy of this growing warehouse.

Scenario:  An equipment sales and service company stocks many parts and supplies for the service department as well as walk in customers.  Properly recording parts as the arrive and assigning parts to the correct work order or POS transaction is crucial to properly manage inventory levels.  The MyInventory scanner is used to purchase product, receive product when it arrives, and reduce inventory when it is added to a work order or sold to a customer.   Parts are also transferred from the parts room to a pair of service trucks using the same scanner.  Automating the inventory management process using barcodes and MyInventory scanners streamlines the challenging task of maintaining proper parts inventory, pricing, and process billing as they are received and consumed.

Scenario:  Maintaining proper stock levels of product within the store is important to properly serve the store’s customers without increasing inventory levels.  The user scans the UPC barcode of an item to verify the current stock level or identify overflow inventory locations.  The user can adjust the stock counts on the rugged android scanner device using the built-in scanner, keyboard, and touchscreen display.  The multiple barcode settings, overflow locations, and other product info within EBMS can be changed from this handheld wireless device.  The inventory manager verifies and adjusts the stock counts within both the warehouse and the store on an annual basis.  This mobile MyEBMS solution has dramatically simplified the ability to maintain accurate inventory counts.
