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Because bin movements are not being recorded in real-time, errors are easily made and inventory is always out of date.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

Sage FAS Fixed Assets

Posted by Meredith Gooch on Thu, Jul 30, 2009

Sage FAS Fixed Assets gives companies complete control over their entire fixed asset lifecycle - from acquisition to disposal. With this increasing control comes the peace of mind that companies are properly managing and depreciating their fixed assets, which affects insurance and tax costs. Features include an intuitive interface, seamless integration with the Inventory, PO, AP, and GL modules, comprehensive reporting, and asset reconciliation. You may recall that Sage Accpac version 5.5 comes with an integration to Sage FAS that is better than ever before.

We will be attending training to learn even more about the latest and greatest enhancements and features in Sage FAS and hope to share that knowledge with you in a formal client training session toward the end of August. Please contact Meredith Gooch if you are interested in attending Sage FAS training or Rufus Vernon if you would like to know more about Sage FAS.

Physical Inventory Count Using ACCU-DART

Posted by Meredith Gooch on Thu, Jul 23, 2009

Physical counts can be one of the most time-consuming and tedious tasks in a warehouse. Counting, recording, and hand-writing long serial or lot numbers for each item is not only slow but can lead to numerous inaccuracies.

Using radio frequency scanners, ACCU-DART improves accuracy and timeliness for updating inventory counts.

When performing physical counts with ACCU-DART, warehouse staff can scan the items, quantities, and serial/lot numbers. Once all items have been scanned, the data is updated in Sage Accpac ERP. By scanning barcodes for the items (and serial/lot numbers), ACCU-DART ensures that the correct information and count is recorded in Accpac. This module can also be used to perform periodic cycle counts.

Scanning items saves countless work hours. One ACCU-DART client went from four days of counting inventory to one day using ACCU-DART!

By performing physical counts with ACCU-DART, you will be able to quickly and accurately manage the inventory in your warehouse.
