Live Webcast: Want to Learn More About Process Scheduler?

Posted by Meredith Gooch on Thu, Nov 26, 2009

Were you recently at our Accpac Thanksgiving event and lucky enough to listen in on one of Rob Lavery's sessions? I was fortunate enough to hear him describe Orchid Systems' Process Scheduler and how it can help automate mundane processes. For example, instead of having to run data integrity checks at nights on weekends (unfortunately, the only time that others aren't in the system), you can run an automated schedule to run integrity checks for you instead by using Process Scheduler! Your Friday nights are yours again!

To catch a live Webcast on the Process Scheduler as well as on Bin Tracking in warehouses for inventory control, join this Webcast on Monday, November 30, 2009.

Bin Tracking & ACCU-DART

Posted by Meredith Gooch on Mon, Sep 28, 2009

Make bin tracking easy and efficient with ACCU-DART!

The old way:

Every time an item is picked for shipping or moved from one bin to another, the warehouse staff has to manually record which bin the item was taken from and where it will go. This information is then entered into the accounting system.

Because bin movements are not being recorded in real-time, errors are easily made and inventory is always out of date.

The ACCU-DART way:

When an item is picked for shipping or for any other bin movement, the warehouse staff can scan the items with ACCU-DART's radio-frequency scanners. ACCU-DART will prompt the user to enter the current bin they are taking the items from and the destination bin. ACCU-DART validates and, upon posting, automatically updates the accounting system in real-time.

For Sage Accpac ERP users, this functionality is available through integration with the bin tracking solution designed by Orchid Systems. This new 3rd party solution allows Sage Accpac ERP users to track inventory items stored in multiple bins within a warehouse or Inventory Control location.

ACCU-DART makes it easy to maintain inventory and bin accuracy within the warehouse. Click Here for more information about our partner.
