Digital Signatures for Cycle Counting

Digital signatures are growing in importance in the technological age and give you a competitive advantage, saving time and money. Gone are the days of printing, mailing, or scanning physical copies of documents. In mInventory 6.1, users can add their digital signatures while posting (counting a physical inventory) for all the three sub-modules of Cycle Counting.

Putaway by Transfer Requirement (TR)

The main objective of the putaway process is to move goods from the transport to the most optimal warehouse storage location. Failing to properly implement an efficient putaway process will have a direct impact in the productivity of warehouse operations. In mInventory 6.1 our application will support Putaway for Warehouse Management (WM) Transfer Requirements both in Foreground and Background.

Barcode Generator (iOS)

Seeking to cut costs and save time? Barcodes are a valuable and viable option for businesses looking to improve speed while accurately tracking large inventory(ies), seeking ways to reduce/prevent errors, and, of course, save money. In mInventory 6.1, users can generate barcodes on the go via the Barcode Generator on the home screen. It’s as easy as tapping the module to generate and then print barcode for the material(s).

 

Label Printing Compatibility with Bluetooth Peripherals (i.e. Honeywell)

Advancements in mobile printers have made them ultra-rugged with wireless and Bluetooth capabilities for global use. In this release, we have successfully integrated the Bluetooth and wireless technology for mobile printing into our mInventory 6.1 application by collaborating with manufacturers such as Honeywell. Printing on the run is available!  

New Modules for Remote Logistic Management (RLM)

To streamline the movement of goods and increase transparency around the shipping environment, mInventory 6.1 includes two new modules under the Remote Logistic Management (RLM).

  • Transfer Containers
  • Pack Deliveries

This completes the cycle of movement of goods from origin to destination. The recording of these movements enables Business Users to monitor and track their inventory along the supply chain.
