MOBILETrak WMS for NISC iVUE Online User Guide
MOBILETrak Warehouse Management System from ID Solutions, Inc. for iVUE is built to help manage the incoming and outgoing material inventory of your warehouse and organization. It is completely integrated with the iVUE ABS Material Inventory Module form NISC.
MOBILETrak WMS uses custom built web-service integration to communicate with iVUE real-time to the MOBILETrak Client over the internet. The connection is made either over a wifi or cellular connection so the application can be used anywhere you have a connection to the internet and the MOBILETrak Cloud. So this could be in the warehouse, in the field or anywhere your are connected.
Although the application uses BARCODING as the primary form of data collection, the true power of the application is working with your material and material inventory transactions AT THE POINT OF ACTIVITY giving your staff immediate visibility to the movement of material inventory as transaction occur.
