New Product TIMBERplus – One – Log Stocktake
There is no substitute for the level of continuity that can be achieved by the use of a single stocktake application. With the popularity of our Veneer and Sawn stocktaking App, we have been requested to develop the One – Log Stocktake App.
This is a multiplatform application which works on Windows 10 desktop, iOS and Android devices. Unlike the Veneer and Sawn stocktaking app, the One – Log Stocktake comes in two modes: Log and Flitch mode. It works online and offline for areas without WiFi. The offline feature allows you the flexibility to find logs without having to worry about a WiFi or VPN connection. The App synchronizes with your TIMBERplus desktop system, to show all logs and flitches found in stock. The logs are color coded with the same colors as our stocktaking module on our desktop system. The App updates the system with the status from found, to find and not found.
Find logs or flitches quickly by using our Bluetooth scanner. If you have one of our handhelds with built in scanner, by using the devices camera or manually type in the number. Automatically the status will change to found once the log is scanned.
‘What happens if the log barcode is no longer readable by the scanner as it has been damaged?’
Not to worry we have also added the ability to search logs manually. Simply type in the first four characters of the log number and click search. It will show you a list of logs with those characters, and select the log in question. This will bring you back onto the stocktaking screen where you will also need to manually select found by clicking of the ‘tick’ next to the log, the color will then change to green. We would also suggest that you reprint the unreadable label and attach it to the log. This process is also available for flitches.
‘What happens if I scan the wrong log, for example, one on a sold log awaiting collection but not part of a stock?
We have added the ability to remove the log from the ‘found’ list. In the stocking screen there is a ‘+’ button, click on this button and it will change to a ‘-’ . After scan the log again and this will be removed from the stock take. Do not forget to click on the ‘-’ button to change this to a ‘+’ before scanning anymore logs into stock.
‘Is it possible to switch between online and offline?’
Yes, it is possible to switch, however, before you switch to offline, sync your data first then delete. Switching immediately to offline before syncing data will incur the loss of data. Hence to switch from online to offline first delete previously synced data.
To switch back to online mode, make sure you sync back the data before switching to online mode, otherwise you will lose all previously scanned data.
How the App Works
Once the stock take and all the logs or flitches has been scanned, go to the synchronization screen to send the data to your TIMBERplus desktop system where the administration side of the stock take will be completed.
For this app to work you will need a TIMBERplus system, WiFi connection when synchronizing the data, on premises server and a licence.
