What software do I need?

Accu-dart software is just an interface layer between a wireless barcode (radio frequency) hand held mobile computer and your existing accounting database. A typical Accu-dart software installation can be done within a few hours and there is no need to buy additional servers or databases. There is a "mobile app" for the hand held barcode reader and a PC application to manage the RF interface. Working with your Accu-dart software partner we will work out what modules and warehouse functions you need now and propose a path for future growth and expansion.

Step 1 in this process is to define what warehouse functions cause you the most pain or can benefit from real time processing now. The majority of errors in a warehouse is in order picking and shipping the customer the wrong product. Once order picking is sorted you may then consider goods receiving and putaway. Each business and different and we take the time to find out functions will improve your business sooner as well as provide a plan for adding more features as you become more comfortable and familiar with Accu-dart.

Accu-dart User Guide

Save this cab file to your PC. Then copy the CAB file to the mobile computer and run it to install Accu-dart for a Windows Mobile 5 device such as the Motorola MC9090 series.

 

What hardware do I need?

The first thing you will require is a proper radio frequency (RF) wireless network that provides fast and reliable coverage throughout your warehouse and office. Barcode Datalink recommends Motorola wireless networking products and have a range of wireless LAN solutions for small office/warehouse units to large warehouse sites with multiple buildings.

Wireless access points for small sites to network switches for large sites with many access ports.

How long does it take to get up and running?

Technically to install Accu-dart can only take a few hours. But in reality there is preparation and planning that needs to go ahead first to make sure that the project is a success and achieves a payback within a timeframe you expect.

Step 1: define your requirements and be clear on what the Accu-dart software can and can't do.

Step 2: audit your current operation and how you work. With wireless mobile hand held computers your staff will work differently. Paper forms will gradually be phased out.

Step 3: engage your warehouse staff. Change will affect them so you want them to embrace this new technology and it will make their lives easier! Some will be scared of change and we have to help them through the process.

Step 4: audit your products and bin locations. Are they barcoded? Is the data correct and in your ERP system properly.

  • if you need bin location labels, Barcode Datalink can print them for you.
  • if you have products without barcodes, ask you supplier to label them otherwise you might have to as you receive them.

Step 5: do you have a reliable wireless network in place? Does it work in every area of the warehouse without drop outs?

Step 6: make a plan for staff training. Office staff need to know how to use the new PC interface and warehouse staff need training on the mobile computers and the new mobile application.

Step 7: going live typically means running the paper based system in tandem with the Accu-dart system since a piece of paper is their safety blanket. Once staff are comfortable and familiar with the Accu-dart system you can remove the paper based system. Be patient since the first week or two always has teething problems. Soon enough all issues will be resolved and once entrenched as part of daily work life your staff will wonder how they ever lived without Accu-dart.

Step 8: have a plan in place just in case you have technical issues and have to revert back to the paper based system.
