ERPlite Barcode Scanning Alternatives


Almost all Barcode reading and labeling products can be used and easily integrated with ERPlite (or an existing ODBC database). 

Simple, inexpensive barcode readers are available that connect to the USB port or in parallel with the Keyboard.  These readers work out of box, and when a barcode is scanned, the barcode data is "typed" into the field containing the cursor.  Bluetooth allows these barcode wands to scan barcodes from  up to 50 ft away. These low cost barcode readers work out-of-box with ERPlite.


Wireless scanners, using either Wifi or cellular devices, are the right solution  for the mobile work force that needs data at the point of activity:: combining the power of a ruggedized barcode terminal,  cellphone and data display/collection software.

Motorola CS3070

  The innovative Motorola CS3000 Series enables enterprises to easily implement 1D laser scanning where either mobility or the cost and size of a traditional scanning device is an inhibitor. The tiny device is affordably priced and fits in a pocket or on a lanyard. The CS3000 can be utilized in standalone mode for the batch scanning of bar codes, while the CS3070 offers batch mode as well as real-time bar code data transmission to a host application via a wireless Bluetooth® connection to smartphones, laptops and more. The result is a new level of affordability for 1D scanning — and the ability to streamline, error-proof and simplify more business processes
