 About PDA

ProStix PDA provides an abbreviated version of many of the standard functions used within the ProStix Enterprise application. It is designed for easy operation over a wireless network using a handheld PDA device.

 This module facilitates more efficient processing in the following business functions:
  • Purchasing: Staff can easily generate purchase orders while they are visually checking the stock holdings.
  • Goods Inwards: Stock receipting can be completed faster by scanning the products where they are received. In peak periods additional staff can help with stock receipting therefore helping process the volume of stock received and getting the stock on the shelves in a timelier manner.
  • Location Control: Update bin locations while ‘walking the aisles’.
  • Shelf Label Printing: Reduce the occurrence of incorrect shelf label pricing as products that require updated labelling can be more easily identified and labels queued for printing.
  • Product Enquiry: Stock checks can be easily performed from the shop floor to ensure your ProStix application reflects the correct stock details.

 About Pick & Despatch

(info)  Sterland has enhanced Pick & Despatch (P&D) by adding a new system flag that will allow orders from different branches to be added to the one run. The flag name is "PADOrdRSbr" and by default is loaded with the value as 'no'. Set this flag to 'yes' if it is required to create Run Sheets in P&D with orders covering multiple branches.

Pick & Despatch is designed for use by sales, customer service and despatch staff. It is divided into the following functional areas. Access to these functional areas is controlled via a user's security.

Functional AreaDescription
Sales Board / Manage DeliveriesProvides an overview of the orders / pick-ups for today and tomorrow.
Picking Lists all orders to be delivered today and tomorrow with the picking status of the orders,
and allows for the picking of orders that are either part picked or waiting to be picked.
