Bar Coding/RFID &
In Inventory Pro
“In-line” capability = real-time savings
with Inventory Pro’s bar code capabilities!
Bar coding is supported in Inventory Pro right “out of the box.” You simply connect an “off-the – shelf” generic bar code scanner to your existing PC. The scanner functions “in-line” with the keyboard and no customization is necessary to read bar codes! Simply position the cursor on the field you intend to scan, and scan. The data automatically appears in the field. If the field is a look-up list field, the data will be verified against the database tables for accuracy. If you are scanning a location or part number, the appropriate data will be returned to the screen, such as:
- All parts (items) in the location
- All attributes of the part (item) or asset
CISS can provide customized receiving and shipping screens that optimize the bar code scanners use, requiring minimal keyboard interaction and speeding up processes and accuracy significantly.
Inventory Pro can print any bar code document you need:
- Shelf/Rack labels of locations
- Inbound receiving labels
- Outbound shipping labels
- Bar coded shipping documents
- Asset tags
- QR and 2D formats
- Serial numbers, lot numbers, expiration dates
- Barcoded reports: Pick / Packing lists, invoices, POs, shipping orders, shipment tracking numbers
- Inventory Catalog report showing all your items in your inventory with pictures and descriptions Can be used for visual verification that the item the technician is working on matches.
