Automated Data Collection

Our approach to automated data collection is to "keep it simple". The simplification of the scanning operation is critical to the business function. It is all about workflow. Our RF programs are built to emulate the workflow of the actual business process. They run live on your IBM System i (AS/400) and work on line with your ERP application, using its existing business rules.

The existing full-size ERP screens were never created to emulate the workflow of the operation; instead, they were designed to support manual batch processes after the actual work had taken place. This is where most of the productivity is gained in the automated RF data collection implementation. The value of timely (and accurate) data in the system provides increased levels of information in the hands of people who need that knowledge.

With our "keep it simple" approach you can significantly shorten your ROI period and immediately deliver to your bottom line.
