Fixed Assets Inventory & Bar Code Scanning
To eliminate common inventory problems such as end of year inventory write-offs, inaccurate inventory counts, and missing inventory items, Collier County Public Schools implemented its new inventory control software package called dInventory Software. This inventory control system is an integrated package of software and hardware used in Fixed Assets/Warehouse operations to monitor quantity, location, and status of inventory. The software is a Stand Alone application that works with the AS400 Rumba/TERMS Inventory Warehouse system to obtain system information on objects valued over $1,000 dollars. The inventory control system relies on barcodes/tags to provide automatic identification of these objects. To record an inventory transaction, the system uses a barcode scanner to automatically identify the inventory object, and then collaborates with information initially downloaded from TERMS. This new and improved process will provide the capability to accurately track inventory in an efficient manner.
Make sure you have a laptop accessible for Inventory Barcode Scanning. Windows 7 or Windows 10 should be on the laptop you intend to use for inventory. If the laptop is running a later version of Windows, you will need to get the Windows 7 or Windows 10 image installed by your schools SST prior to dInventory software installation.Software
