Guest We are looking to perform VMI at multiple customer locations. What we would like is for the stocker to walk into a customer site, put the customer name into the scanner and scan codes for the items that need to be reordered. The information on the bar code should be the item number and the quantity to order. Ideally we could then print off a report to give to an inside sales person to order the items needed.


A mobile computer like the Honeywell Dolphin 9700 will be the type of device you will want for a VMI type application. This device can run something as simple as an Excel sheet or a more custom application we can develop for you to track and collect order information in the field. With the integrated scanner, touchscreen, and QWERTY keypad you have several ways to input data and with the built-in 802.11a/b/g radio you can get online to wirelessly print or even email the orders.
