Sage Intacct Inventory Automation — The Mobile Barcode Solution

Last month, we introduced you to Sage Intacct Inventory Management and highlighted how it can help you reach and maintain a balanced, optimized perpetual inventory. If you haven’t read that article, we encourage you to do that and then come back and visit this one.

Would you be surprised to learn that the average American spends over five hours a day on their mobile device? (We also check our phones an average of 144 times per day!) So, while it sounds like we don’t need another reason to pick up our devices, we have one! Meet Sage Intacct Inventory Automation, the mobile automation and barcode technology tool that captures end-to-end inventory movement on—you guessed it—a mobile device. Here’s a look at what it can do and why it matters.

Mobile Barcode Inventory Tracking

Sage Intacct Inventory Automation is a cloud inventory, barcode-capable app that runs on a mobile device. Fire it up, log in, and you can capture and complete virtually any inventory-related transaction, including physical counts, receipts, adjustments, transfers, picking, and shipping. The data you collect is validated and sent in real-time to your Sage Intacct database keeping everything up to date. Here’s how it works:

Real-time Integration

Sage Intacct Inventory Automation communicates in real-time with Sage Intacct, continually updating your inventory records with the activity it captures.

Print Labels

You can print barcode labels from within the application—it even reminds the users to print before moving to another task. It will also print shipping labels, assigning a carrier based on the Sales Order information. Sage Intacct Inventory Automation can also be integrated with UPS, FedEx, USPS, and others.

Many Supported Devices

While Sage Intacct Inventory Automation is a mobile app, your phone isn’t going to do it justice. Remember, you’ll be scanning barcodes, so you’ll want a device designed for that task. You can choose from several supported devices—all ruggedized to protect them from the inevitable drop.

Supports Alias Item Numbers

Does your vendor call your widget a whatzit? Sage Intacct Inventory Automation allows you to link alias items to your Sage Intacct inventory item numbers. When you scan the alias, the application recognizes it as your item.

Works Offline

Work doesn’t need to stop if the WiFi goes down. Sage Intacct Inventory Automation also works offline, waiting until its connection is restored to upload its stored transactions.

Doesn’t Require a User License

You do not need to buy additional user licenses for the employees that use Sage Intacct Inventory Automation, making this an affordable way to extend the power of your business management application.

Intuitive to Use

The highly intuitive user interface makes training a breeze. While the solution was designed to capture barcode data, it works just the same if you’re not using barcodes. You can enter, or search for, a specific purchase order, for example, and the app will display the items on the order.

Automatic Error Checking

Users receive a warning when Sage Intacct Inventory Automation detects something that could be amiss—under or over-receiving lines on a purchase order, for example.

Flexible Configuration

You have tremendous control over the application’s functionality. You can name transactions whatever you like, reorder them within the app, and remove those you don’t use.

Maintains Audit Trail

Sage Intacct Inventory Automation maintains historical transaction details, including user activities, so you’re always in the know.

    With data validation at the point of activity, you can prevent shipping errors before they happen.
