Step 1: Activating the Sage Mobility for Barcode Module
Regardless of whether you are using Sage 100 or Sage 100cloud, going mobile is easy. The included Mobility for Bar Code Module and Mobility Remote Setup activates mobility in a matter minutes, without a substantial technology investment or significant IT involvement.
Step 2: Choosing the Right Mobility Apps
Choosing the right mobility app that will help you realize your goals is paramount for achieving success for your mobility initiatives. To help you get started with mobility, Sage & Scanco have partnered together to provide Sage 100 users access to mobility applications. These apps are designed to help your need to manage your supply chain quickly and conveniently, using the latest mobile technology—whenever you want, wherever you are.
Step 3: Scanning Hardware
Throughout your warehouse, different users performing different tasks may require different devices to maximize comfort, usability, and productivity. For example, at the loading dock, workers will need rugged scanning devices that can withstand the wide temperature swings as workers move from outside to indoors. Workers picking smaller items or handling packages could benefit from wearable scanners that provide hands-free comfort and convenience—and even voice-directed picking.
Workers using forklifts, pallet jacks, and other material handling equipment also need mobile devices that can be mounted on the vehicle and are designed to handle all-day pounding and vibration. Workers involved in simple scanning operations need barcode scanners that are designed for the rigors of the warehouse environment.
In order to maximize user productivity, you need to match the device that is best designed for a specific warehouse or shop floor task. Scanco can help you find the right hardware options for the unique challenges of your environment.
