At the end of each year, if not more frequently, you initiate an inventory physical count of your department, branch, warehouse, office or storeroom. If you utilize distributors, each of your sales partners does the same, often calling in your staff to help with this overwhelming, time-consuming, tedious task.
To smooth this process, many companies have spent tens of thousands of dollars on hardware, software and often additional programming to enable them the ability to scan barcodes containing their items’ UPC or other stock-keeping unit (SKU) codes to synch the numbers with the inventory management and accounting systems.
Simplicity of Use
SIMMS’ Mobile is a separate module designed to work in tandem with the feature-rich SIMMS Inventory Management software. It is a remote data collecting software solution that connects quickly with customer and vendor data, tracks your fixed assets, stockroom inventory, completes physical count adjustments, receives and issues items remotely and effortlessly without the usual massive expense.
You can easily complete invoices, receipts of goods, inventory transfers and physical count adjustments. Employees simply scan codes on the orders and the data is passed to SIMMS immediately if wireless live mode is enabled. In batch mode, all data on the Windows Mobile device is synchronized with the SIMMS system in just minutes. SIMMS gives you the flexibility to decide on the hardware that best suits your budget.
Windows Mobile sets you free...
SIMMS’ Windows Mobile Program works on Windows Mobile-based devices (smart phones, data collectors and even Pocket PC 2003 or newer devices) to help you save time and eliminate human error in tallying product totals. Transactions are completed as you walk through your warehouse and process inventory physical counts on-the-fly by transmitting the data directly into SIMMS Inventory Management software (either in batch mode uploads or live via wireless LAN/WAN). Unlike straight barcode scanners, Windows Mobile devices with barcode attachments (if required) cost quite a bit less than competing solutions.
SIMMS Windows Mobile Advantages:
- Collect data instantly using bar-coded items with a scanner connected to a lightweight, completely portable hand-held computer (HHC) with Windows Mobile 5 or Windows Pocket PC 2003 SE. An array of data can be gathered, validated and verified in this way—not only inventory counts, but also quantities, item numbers and lot/serial numbers of goods invoiced or received.
- Eliminate costly time-consuming manual data entry by importing data from the HHC into your SIMMS system in batch mode or live at the moment of entry.
- Freedom to walk around your warehouse and process invoices, receipts of goods, physical count adjustments and add new inventory items on-the-fly.
- Flexibility to choose the hardware you want (as long as it has Windows Mobile 5 or Windows Pocket PC 2003 SE) gives you the solution you need at a budget you can afford.
