I have tried to upload into the AM30.1 screen but I am getting the message "Asset type does not exist". I know for sure that the asset Type does exist. Has anyone had issues with this before and can you give me insight into where I am going wrong? Read More...
MSCM Barcode Printer
We are looking to start using barcodes on PARs/Inventories with our handhelds and eventually anything else that will help process things quicker. I was frankly shocked when I was sent the supported label printers, Intermec 3400E, Zebra 105SL, Zebra 110xiIIIPlus, Zebra Z4M, not only due to their price, but the Zebra Z4M was taken out of production in 2004 and is no longer supported by Zebra. I am hoping I can get some guidance. What does everyone else use for barcode printing? Read More...
We currently have IC11 and PO13 locked down to a team of 4; however, there is an executive push to grant access to add/change/delete items to our 11 buyers. What are your opinions of decentralizing access for the item master and vendor item? Read More...
