ALIS TIK is an input/output module, providing system connectivity and effective user interfaces for wireless barcode and RFID scanners, tablet computers, and other WiFi devices.  It fa­ci­li­tates the use of such terminals for tran­s­port mana­ge­ment, material tracking, status reporting and other common ware­house ope­ra­tions.

When used as part of the ALIS system, this module closely cooperates with the GIK and PIK modules. However, it was also designed to function as an independent subsystem connected to any third-party ware­house mana­ge­ment software used by our clients.

ALIS TIK supports the following key features by default:

  • Receipt, handling and dispatch of goods (RHD).
  • Tran­s­port unit formation (pallets, packages, etc.)
  • On-site material and tran­s­port unit identification.
  • Location reporting/guidance for materials and tran­s­port units.
  • Inventory mana­ge­ment for any storage location or area.
  • Quality control and logging of product defects.

Technical Spe­ci­fications

  • Server-side software runs on any system that supports the Java runtime environment.

  • Client side software supports the Android operating system as well as older RF terminals of prominent manufacturers (such as AML or Zebra/Symbol/Motorola).

  • Connection to the company's WMS, ERP, or similar software can be made using the ALIS KIK subsystem or directly via an SQL database (supported options include PostgreSQL, DB2, MySQL, MSSQL, Oracle, and others).

  • TCP or UDP protocol may be used to connect server-side system to wireless terminals within WiFi networks.

  • Number of physical terminals is unli­mi­ted. We don't licence the software based on the number of users.

  • Our standard im­ple­men­ta­tion offers two virtual terminals per each physical terminal.

  • Based on client's needs, we can customize any of the supported ope­ra­tions, or add new functionality.

User Interface

The TIK module was designed carfully, with simple user interfaces that fa­ci­li­tate time-effective work despite portable terminals' li­mi­ted screen and/or keyboard sizes:

  • Quick to find and easy to use ope­ra­tions are implemented with minimal number of menus, selections, and data entry fields.

  • Terminal multiplexing and virtualization allow operators to perform multiple independent tasks at the same time on the same physical terminal.

  • Task coordination mode is useful in manual labor ware­houses where people, forklifts, etc. operate in li­mi­ted spaces.
