|Wireless Inventory software|
What is a wireless inventory system?Conventional inventory systems are installed on desktops but the people working in warehouses and selling goods are in constant motion. They should give information about all their operations in the office where the information is entered into the computer. But you can significantly accelerate the integration of all warehousing and sales information if you install our inventory system with a mobile extension. This system allows you to enter information from any mobile device connected to the network via wireless internet or Wi-Fi. Warehouse workers will record the receipt of goods directly to a warehouse using a handheld computer or a wireless scanner. Your sellers will write invoices or orders directly from customers using your cell phone. You can significantly speed up the inventory of your warehouse if your employee will conduct a physical account using a wireless scanner or PDA.
How to work our wireless inventory system?Our system consists of three parts:
How to install our wireless inventory system in your company?First of all you have to organize a wireless network in your company. It is usually done using a wireless router with Wi-Fi function.

Then, you have to download and install our Golden Web Inventory System or Golden Inventory System . They are almost identical system but Golden Web Inventory System better works with remote databases.
If you use Windows XP check whether you have Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 (or later) on your computer. Use the Windows menu Start-Control Panel-Add or Remove programs.
If you do not find this framework download it from Microsoft and install on your computer.
Windows Vista and 7 has this framework.
You have to install the IIS web server on your computer. To install IIS, add optional components, or remove optional components
You can read more about the IIS installation at the Microsoft site
Create two new folders C:\Inetpub\database\ and C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\goldmob\ and place in this folder our Mobile extention files. Then, run Golden Inventory System and create a new database with the menu File-New Database File.
Select the folder "C:\Inetpub\database" and enter the file name "Invent". After that, you can find the database file invent.idb in the folder C:\Inetpub\database.
Then use the menu File-Security and add several users with passwords. You can define access rights for each user.
Now,you have to set permissions for the new folders.
The database file invent.idb doesn't have sufficient security permissions or write permissions to be modified when updating data in it. The web browser is seen by the web server as a Internet User that has the server account IUSR. This user needs to have write permission to the database file and to the database folder.
Follow these steps to resolve this issue:
Now, you can check your web application. open Internet explorer and enter the address http://localhost/goldmob/ you will see the login page of Golden inventory system. You have to set exceptions in your firewall for IIS and go to this web page from wireless device using an address like http://192.168.0.2/goldmob You should use the IP address of your server computer.
