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.
