Physical Count Procedures and Equipment
It’s that time of year again, Physical Count Time, and having the right equipment will help with quick and accurate counts.
CCS used to advise using an Optimus SP5500 PDT to do counts. It is simple, quick, and easy to use. Unfortunately, it has been discontinued and although there are still a few out there, they are getting harder to find.
CCS has been testing many different devices and have finally found one that is even easier to use. It is the AML LDX 10. There are many features that can be used that the Optimus did not have.
For example, with the AML device, it can be programmed to only allow keypad entry only for quantities, which eliminates barcodes scanned in as quantities, the user interface is easier to read and bigger and brighter.
It runs a compact version of the Windows OS, so it will also be more familiar looking to your users. It also has a touchscreen interface with bigger buttons for ease of use.
It also has a programmable barcode scanner and is USB connected for easy installation. Downloading of the information is also much more user-friendly and intuitive and multiple files can be saved for downloading all at once or one at a time.
Reviewing your work is also much easier and intuitive with on-screen directions and buttons for deleting and editing.
