The problems inherent to the distribution of goods have increased dramatically in recent times, due to the ever-increasing competitiveness of companies and the need to act in real time, combined with optimisation of cost management: many components are thus involved, from Logistics to Sales to Administration, passing through EDP.
The intelligent answer to this type of problem is the use of handheld computers: they make it possible to organize warehouse activities starting from the entry of goods, then from the necessary control over them; to verify the physical existence of the products, to quickly and accurately inventory what is actually present, highlighting any deviations; to prepare the material to be shipped, immediately verifying correspondence with what is expected, signaling inconsistencies or errors in picking; to transfer the data acquired to the central information system, thus providing it with the necessary information bases extremely rapidly.
Allows you to have at any time the situation, updated in real time, of the articles in one or more warehouses. The application can manage several thousand articles, while keeping the stock situation in memory for long periods. It is also possible to check returns of goods from customers and to suppliers. Furthermore, it is possible to print real-time situations on any printer. Interfacing with optical barcode readers is foreseen.
The package provides for the management of the loading and turning of the lorry. In fact, the setting of the programme ensures not only the guarantee that the material has been picked up, but also the placement of the load on the lorry according to the delivery round to be made, and verifies, by means of bar codes, that the deliveries are correctly made.
