Mobiles Sales Data Capture is used to obtain sales data at its point of entry and to integrate customers, price lists and products with Sage software. The data is uploaded to the main office directly, thus delivering electronic data interchange integration and eliminating manual data entry.

Warehouse Management

Our Warehouse Management Solution (WMS) streamlines the goods in/goods out process in your warehouse, featuring a database that stores your stock items with their stock codes, quantities and locations. It also enables you to record goods received, move stock and run a stocktake.

WebPos software lets you create purchase requisitions from outside the office that are posted directly through to a purchase order in Sage. This eliminates the need for manual entry data entry or feeding information back to the office by phone or email.
