Integrate barcode scanning technology with your AusVantage/ DISTRIB ERP Solution

Using barcode technology integrated with your ERP software system is no longer a luxury available only to big companies with correspondingly big IT budgets. Today, economies of scale and the widespread use of integrated barcode technologies help companies reduce inventory costs, eliminate errors, improve document tracking and effectively streamlines business processes.The use of integrated barcode technologies enable companies to truly maximize productivity. It eliminates manual entries effectively reducing the likelihood of human error. Studies show an average of 10 keying errors for every 1,000 characters in comparison to 1 error in 70 million laser entries.

Barcode technologies help manufacturers, distributors and retailers better manage their inventories which can dramatically reduce the amount of inventory on-hand. Warehouse managers now know exactly when inventory is low, if physical inventory matches system inventory and even where specific items are located within the warehouse.

Integrated barcode solutions enable representatives to check the number of units being shipped for each order and provide accurate enquires for stock items that could not be supplied in full.
