Remote Data Collection (optional)

Top  Previous  Next

The optional Design Manager Data Collection System is a flexible way to work with both special order inventory and stock inventory items using bar code labels and a portable handheld scanner.  By organizing items and tasks into logical groups called “Lots,” the system allows the user to track items to and from a job site, transfer items to projects for proposal/billing, receive items, deliver items, create a point of sale invoice, transfer items to and from warehouses and showrooms, and perform physical counts.

 

To use this system you will need the optional Design Manager Data Collector software and a handheld portable scanner.  You will also need to print labels from the Design Manager software that are compatible with the scanner.
