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.

WP Timbers implements TransLution™ Software for inventory management

WP Timbers, one of the leading suppliers of Pine Products in the Northern Cape, utilises Translution™ to effectively and accurately manage stock.

Users print stock labels displaying the stock code, description and a unique barcode. Upon receiving stock, the labels are applied and scanned to transfer stock into a location and create a goods received note. The stock labels are also scanned to replenish bin locations by transferring stock from one location to another.

Translution™ also provides the functionality to dispatch stock by scanning the stock labels, capturing all relevant information and creating a Dispatch Note. All stock movements are tracked and logged and the quantities of the stock in the different bin locations are updated.

SAMIL uses TransLution™ Software to track product movements

SAMIL is an innovative South African Company that specialises in the production and processing of natural fibres, as well as speciality spun yarns.

SAMIL operations comprise a factory and two warehouses which are located slightly apart from each other. This distance was one of the deciding factors in SAMIL choosing to implement TransLution™ Software.

TransLution™ is used to track the movement of bales between warehouses. Each bale is a serialised item in SYSPRO and the transfers are either recorded as bin transfers (within a single warehouse) or warehouse transfers (between warehouses) in SYSPRO.

When bales are moved between warehouses, TransLution™ is used to print a transfer slip showing all the bales to be moved. This serves both as a guide to users and a validation mechanism to ensure that only the right bales are moved.

The planned second phase of this project will be rolled out in the factory where TransLution™ will be used to scan items for job issues and receipts and post this data to Syspro.

ABOUT

SAMIL originated in 1965 when a Bradford textile trading company opened a subsidiary company called International Mohair Topmakers (PTY) Ltd in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, in what was then and still is the centre of the world mohair industry. Over the years there have been many changes in the business, moving from greasy purchasing and then commission combing both abroad and in South Africa, before opening its own combing mill, Border Combing Company, in 1987.In 1992 South African Mohair Industries Limited (SAMIL) was formed. Primarily a mohair trader and processor, SAMIL’s ambitions have reached far beyond this activity, and it now sees itself as the link between mohair producers, processors and consumers.
