Hi

Anybody using 3rd party barcode scanning modules? The main need at this stage is OE orders/shipments. I've looked at Autosimply, the one advantage being that it is modular, they can add PO & manufacturing at a later stage, but it looks like you need to capture the order first, thereafter you can use a scanner for shipment.

The customer would like to speed up this process, as the majority of orders runs to over 50 detail lines. Is there any solution out there that allows you to create the order by scanning the item code etc.

Any comments or recommendations will be appreciated.

You don't need a special program to do that, all you do is open an order and start scanning the item's barcode - you will still need to enter the quantity though.
You could write a macro to automate the process, just scan items and have the macro fill in quantity, but that only works if the quantity is constant.

And just to support Accu-Dart, its a great product that helps with receiving, shipping and inventory counts etc. Especially if you have serialized inventory.
It is not however designed to create sales orders... it takes over after the sales order has been created.
My reply above may have been a bit misleading, you do need Accu-Dart if you want to streamline the OE and PO process with scanners.

Thanks Ettienne

I've checked out Accu-Dart & AutoSimply, all of them only works once an order, whether PO or OE, has been entered, and then you can ship or receipt, which I think will be more helpful, as they are doing an unneccessary large amount of credit notes, due to the incorrect item or qty shipped/invoiced.
