Hello DEAR community,
Are you using barcode scanning with DEAR Inventory? If so...
We would like to use Bar Code scanning at trade shows, but are concerned that we will end up with multiple customer cards.
I understand that DEAR does not currently offer a card merge function.....
A card merge function would be an important start for us to looking into the rest of the scanning.
I have only begun to incorporate barcode scanning into my use of DEAR and am finding the system not as robust to incorporate the scanning workflow as I had hoped to incorporate. I am developing an inventory tracking system on behalf of a food manufacturer and would like to track product by counts via barcode scanning at multiple stages of the production process. Here's the general workflow -
1. Configure New Assembly
2. Load BOM
3. Pick from availability
4. Transfer BOM product to secondary production location (bin)
5. Count Product output
6. Complete New Assembly
From what I've found as of now, you can not do that in DEAR. Assembly has to be Authorized and Completed in one location (COMMUNITY - PLEASE TELL ME IF I'M WRONG).
As to your questions, here's what I'm using -
Scanner: Motorola LI4278 (great product, no configuration or install of drivers required)
Barcode generator: IDAutomation Code 128 Font Advantage Package (this has been a bit trickier to configure, but the end result has been successful)
Duncan, it may be a recent change but there is a merge customer option under view all customers.
