the mobile data acquisition in Dynamics 365 Business Central.

At a glance:
Mistakes, loss of time, mountains of paper is

Your challenge in the warehouse without the add-on.

Can you really rely on your data in the system? How many products are currently in stock and where are they located? Can your employees really operate the system error-free or do mistakes happen frequently? If you find yourself asking these questions, you are like many SMEs. In our experience, there are two starting points for the dilemma. Which one do you find yourself in?

  • Subsequent data acquisition from your desk

    If you are not yet using our add-on anaptis Mobile Logistics and also do not have any mobile devices in use, delays will occur due to the subsequent data entry to Dynamics 365 Business Central (formerly Dynamics NAV/Navision) “from your desk”.

    After all, the data is not captured in real time at the point of action in the system.

    Other factors are: Stress leads to incorrect entries, which have fatal consequences for both the warehouse and the accounting department. In addition, relevant documents must be kept for at least ten years, which results in large mountains of files.

  • Working with mobile touch devices without touch optimization and scan function

    If you are already working with mobile devices but not yet with our app, you cannot yet fully exploit the potential of mobile devices. After all, you are only calling up the browser view of Dynamics 365 Business Central.

    This results in the following problems:

    1. no touch optimization or suitability for warehouse activities (e.g. picking)
    2. no scan function
Mobile data acquisition in Dynamics 365 Business Central:

Our solution anaptis Mobile Logistics.

Our add-on anaptis Mobile Logistics enables mobile data acquisition in Dynamics 365 Business Central via mobile devices in real time. What are all mobile devices? This includes, for example: MDE, barcode or radio scanners, smartphones, tablets, notebooks, touch screens or forklift terminals. And our favorite feature for increasing your productivity: the application’s scan function.

Our Microsoft-certified add-on extends the Microsoft 365 Business Central system standard. In this way, the processes (goods receipt, putaway, stock transfer, picking, goods issue, receipts and issues, blocking of storage bins) can be recorded in a user-friendly manner in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central directly when they are created.May we give you a demonstration?
