K3 SYSPRO PRESCRIBES BARCODE TECHNOLOGY TO EASE DIRECTA’S STOCKTAKES


Directa is a leading UK industrial and office supplies company. In 2008, Directa contracted K3 Syspro (K3) to provide a comprehensive IT support package, including a fully tailored SYSPRO ERP system, Dell hardware and remote Network support. The K3 solution modernised Directa’s financial and distribution processes. Directa has taken another step forward with its SYSPRO ERP solution by starting to automate its stocktaking using handheld Opticon barcode scanners.

Stocktaking can be an arduous task for any company if the approach is manual. That is why many forward-looking companies have asked K3 to help them harness the power of the barcode, a 50-year old invention that brings efficiency and accuracy to the warehouse eliminating the need for mountains of paperwork, additional staff and days of cross-referencing documents to items held on the warehouse shelves.

“The consultation stage went really well. The consultant spent two days with us, teaching us how to best use the devices with SYSPRO and how to streamline our stocktake process. He really motivated us to start getting the best out of our SYSPRO system and the Opticon Devices.”
