Inventory Management and Bar Coding
In Inventory Management, new status settings are available to help you better manage warehouses.
Inactive – for a warehouse that’s no longer in use. Setting inactive status will make the warehouse unavailable for selection in any data entry tasks.
Restricted – for a warehouse still in use but requires a temporary restriction. This could be useful if you need to perform a physical inventory count for example.
The Bar Code module has been renamed and is now called Mobility for Bar Code (available for Sage 100c only). In a nutshell, a variety of functions and tasks have been added, making it easier to leverage Scanco’s mobile app for Apple iOS and Android to do process transactions like data entry, receipt of goods, inventory counts and much more using a mobile device.
