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