Stock Count & Cycle Counting

Annual Stock Count or Cycle Counting

Stock counting is an integral part of any product business. However the process of printing count sheets, collating and valuing the stock can be an arduous process. We have simplified this process using a handheld computer that will read a barcode and allow the user to input the count quantity. If your products are not bar-coded you can print barcode labels from the system based on your product code. The system will value the count at the cost price and the results can be extracted to Excel if required. The stock difference can be exported to a csv file for import into your stock control system.

System Highlights

  • Barcode label Printing
  • Multiple Handhelds can be used for the count
  • Can be used with or without barcodes
  • Standard Avery/ Sellotape Labels printed from a laser
  • links or import your existing stock data

Counting Stock Items

The user can also scroll through the parts using the scroll bar. When the required part is selected the user can enter the quantity using graffiti or the number input pad.
If a part does not exist in your Stock records you can add it manually using the New Part screen. The emphasis in the application is on ease of use and quick data entry.

Reviewing the Count File

Multiple handhelds can be used for the count process with the count data consolidated centrally for review and reporting.
