Hunt Valley, MD (PRWEB) April 12, 2005
A new application interface (API) is now available from IntelliTrack Inc., the leading manufacturer of affordable bar code and RFID tracking software. IntelliTrack API integrates IntelliTrack products with enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems and accounting packages, to provide barcode scanning, barcode printing, inventory control and wireless mobility.
IntelliTrack API uses XML to synchronize application data between IntelliTrack software and the SQL, text or Oracle back-end of an ERP system or accounting package. The API continuously looks for staged data and events. When something changes on either the ERP/accounting side, or the warehouse side, API recognizes the changes, and synchronizes the data using customer-defined business rules.
"We have added our Inventory Shipping, Receiving and Picking (ISRP) program to Quickbooks. You can have a real strong inventory control system for a small business that does not cost a lot of money," said James Budniakiewicz, president of IntelliTrack.
"You can also use API to integrate our Warehouse Management System (WMS) Professional edition with robust ERP and MRP systems, such as Datapro, Great Plains, MAS200, or SAP." Budniakiewicz said. "You can even integrate IntelliTrack WMS Professional with Oracle Small Business Suite or Oracle Manufacturing."
IntelliTrack ISRP is a scaled down version of IntelliTrack WMS. Both systems help companies large and small to keep track of their warehouse inventory. ISRP and WMS use a SQL database to manage data collected from mobile computers and handheld terminals. With ISRP, data is collected in batch mode, and synchronized with the database when the handheld device is returned to its serial or Ethernet cradle. WMS Professional provides real time communication via a wireless (Wi-Fi) network between the mobile devices and central database. Both products provide the ability to scan and print barcode labels, and perform inventory transactions such as shipping, receiving, picking and putting away.
"Anyone who is selling an ERP system can use our API to build a custom plug-in to interface their product with IntelliTrack. Their system will then have robust warehouse management capabilities, including barcode scanning, barcode printing, and wireless communication with mobile devices. IntelliTrack runs on all major brands of handheld computers, so this is a quick path to success for any ERP vendor," Budniakiewicz said.
