For many businesses, stocktaking is a slow and error-prone experience which requires multiple trips between offices and stores to count, compare and adjust your stock levels. It doesn’t have to be this way. Instead of wasting time using conventional stocktaking systems, why not make use of your existing Windows CE compatible devices to scan, manage and handle the stock transfer process automatically?

The Inventas I-Stock and I-Sync systems include a Hardware Scanning Device and associated software elements which make it easy to scan single barcodes or batches of barcodes and upload that data directly to your in-house database. As long as your stock has barcodes, regardless of the system, you can track stock levels and audit your stock on the go.
How it works
The specialist software module, connected to your scanning device, allows your barcode scanner to work directly with your Window CE Mobile Operating system to accurately capture stock data. Communication to the main stock control system PC is also facilitated by a software module, otherwise known as a HQ element. This clever HQ element processes all the scanned information and sends it directly it to the stock control system and data management system via a FTP connection, direct data link or file transfer.
You can then verify your scanned data against your stock list on your PC. With just a push of a button you can import your data into a database via the impressive I-Sync system. To make this easier across multiple sites, you can edit the data using a broadband connection before you begin uploading your vital data. Together our I-Stock and I-Sync offer a comprehensive, time-saving and flexible solution to stocktaking.

Accurate Stock Counting
It is more important than ever for retailers to keep an accurate stock count, and that is exactly what I-Stock can help you achieve. If you sell products online as well as in-store, or offer a click and collect service to your customers, then it is imperative that you know how many of each item you have in stock so that your customers don’t arrive at the store to find that the product they had reserved is out of stock.
The Inventas system lets you keep track of items, perform a stock transfer between different locations and manage your databases remotely with I-Sync. Keeping track of where things are and getting reports on stock levels is simple. The system is easy to use, just like a traditional barcode scanner and is compatible with the Windows CE devices that are commonly found in the world of retail today. Your employees should find it easy to get to grips with the system, with minimal training required. This means you don’t have to spend a lot of money on upgrading your hardware or teaching people how to use a new stock-taking system.
