Need a Windows-based inventory system

By gtork ·
I currently have an inventory/locator system that runs on an AS/400. I am not looking for a full WMS. We use a controller, scanners, and access points all made by Intermec. I am looking to switch to a Windows-based solution, either NT or 2000, that can handle a medium-light workload. Of course, cost will be an issue. Any suggestions?

Need a Windows-based inventory system

Hi, I don't have a solution for you (yet) but a suggestion to allow people to answer you in the correct context. Can you describe the requirements of the new system with some more specifics, like: how many unique part numbers (and locations) are involved?; how many concurrent users?; interfaced to an automated picking-system?; if current data entry is on terminals do you want to keep them?; if not a full 'WMS' then what features are important?

Even with those answers, we're still in the 'guesstimate' category here... HTH

Per wrogers response:
Less than 600 SKUs that can be in any of 3-5 locations, 20-30 concurrent users, non-interfaced, will need access to system from approx 10-15 PCs, important features are putaway/receiving and line replenishment. Basically, I just need something that will tell the unloaders where a new shipment goes and other workers where to find an item when a line needs to be replenished.

Unfortunately, most US-based companies do not address this sort of software. If you are willing to pay moderate pricing, you might want to look at UK-based Peregrine Systems' IntraTools Desktop Discovery.

IDD is an asset management and tracking system in which you run a scan on a computer. The scan will gather both hardware and application data by recognizing appication "fingerprints". It will then send a fingerprint inventory file to the cascade server (running on a remote workstation orserver) for processing into the asset database.

Remote access is no problem as long as you can see the server as a UNC address, you can upload to it. In addition, the software has the ability to order specific numbers of connection licenses asyou may require.

Maybe I didn't explain it very well. There are a lot of US companies that do this type of locator software.

Thanks for the response.
