How do I set up barcodes for stock management?
A barcode system can dramatically increase the accuracy of your inventory. This means that your inventory management system is always up to date. It can even set alerts, such as when preferred stock or stock closer to expiry is available. Barcode and scanning is very straightforward to implement alongside an inventory management system like StockAssist Medical. We can even install the software for you and carry out staff training onsite, setting you up for success.
What are the benefits of a GS1 certified system?
All StockAssist packages are GS1 certified. GS1 labelling ensures end to end traceability with fewer errors, giving the user fast and accurate data capture at every point in the supply chain. It is easier to move items throughout the supply chain, even internationally. Read more about GS1 compliance here.
How does StockAssist Medical work?
>Upon receiving your delivery, you can scan the barcode to immediately identify the manufacturer, the unique product, quantity, date of production, expiry date, batch number, and more. Barcode scanning can securely manage and store a suite of data relevant to that product, your practice and even your patients.
Because StockAssist Medical functions with GS1 and HIBCC barcodes, it integrates seamlessly with legacy healthcare labelling standard as well as the latest Scan 4 Safety requirements.
StockAssist Medical can be either cloud hosted on our dedicated servers, or can be installed on the customer’s local network server. It comprises a web interface allowing product and stock information to be reviewed and updated from a web browser such as Internet Explorer, Firefox, or Safari allowing any networked computer access to the system.
For recording the actual movement of items in a warehouse, stores, distribution area or hospital etc. an industrial PDA is used. The PDA functions with either Windows Mobile or Android operating systems.
