G.Fox utilises TransLution™ Software for Stock Checking

G.Fox, a premier supplier of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), cleaning chemicals, paper products, and industrial consumable supplies, has implemented TransLution™ Software to check the organisation’s physical stock against the SYSPRO inventory picture.

In this initial implementation, the G.Fox user scans a barcode which is stored in a custom field in SYSPRO and uses that information to retrieve the Stock Code. TransLution™ then responds by showing the Stock Code on the screen. This code is also found on the item label, allowing the user to alert a supervisor if there is a mismatch. If the inventory item has not been received into SYSPRO, the user is able to see that from the error that is displayed.
