ScanMan-W Batch and wireless software is data collection software designed to run on Windows Mobile Scanners:

In the same way that a desktop computer realises its full potential with Office software, a Windows Mobile Scanner realises its full potential with ScanMan-W software. The software allows for data collection in a warehouse, industrial and office environment by providing:•

• A rich user interface in the palm of your hand.
• Powerful Windows controls, using a variety of methods for capturing data, all fully configurable by you!
• Lookup lists.
• The ability to convert a scanned barcode into a stock code, description, quantity and value.

One system, many uses:

ScanMan software uses a consistent user friendly platform to provide data collection for many areas of your business:

 

• Easily move scanners between different areas of your business: one setting in a text file reconfigures the scanner for use in the new area.
• Unlimited number of area configurations for your business.
• A maximum of 4 transactions in each area- completely self configurable!
• Powerful File Creation Features.
• No need for file transformation software: our scanners can create any file format for most accounting and ERP systems. The scanner can create the file directly on your server for processing into your accounting system, or on the scanner for synchronising when USB docked to the PC.
• Each transaction can have its own file format and file name, or all transactions can use a single file format.
• Totally customisable file formats, configure your own:

  • File column and row delimiters,
  • fixed columns,
  • lookup columns,
  • date and number formatting,
  • dynamic file names based on date time or any scanned or captured information ,
  • local file saving (synchronised to my documents using Microsoft Active Sync),
  • Network file saving – save your data directly to your server from the wireless scanner.

 ScanMan WMS Mobile software is robust software developed for use on Windows enabled wirless devices. The software integrates closely with ScanMan Warehouse Management software and ScanMan Outbound Sales software.

The Wireless software has been designed and refined over 9 years by observing operators in the warehouse. It makes use of features of mobile computing to provide a rich yet simple user interface directly linked to the live database for adjusting, moving, counting, checking and inventory.

The user interface is specially designed for operation in noisy, dusty, low-light conditions, for users who have no formal computer training. Clear messages with red and green colours clearly indicate to the user the success of their transaction.

Coupled with a high performance server, the scanners and your wireless network do not suffer from performance problems during peak usage. All of the heavey processing is done on our ScanMan business server software. The business server software logs all adjustments with who-what-when for full tracebility of stock movements.

The scanners allow the user the freedom to interact with the data using touch screen buttons and on-scren writing, or using the hard-key buttons on the scanner. Many screens are designed to dynamically refresh based on the last scanned data which allows for powerful and quick cycle counts, pick lists, stock take, or inventory.

A unique and important feature of the ScanMan Wireless Lan software is instant detection of duplicate serial numbers during inventory or stock take. A bold error indicates if a duplicate serial number has been detected. Duplicate labels in your warehouse take up storage space, become obsolete, and will never be consumed or sold beacause your ERP system does not know they exist. They are un-deteactable using any other software techniques other than real-time, server side processing during inventory as is available with ScanMan WL.

The wireless software requires a user to log in to the scanner using a password and username, this allows for accurate accountability of stock movements.
