Magnatron Archive Report System

Manage reports in a faster manner:

Magnatron’s newest addition to our software package is an archive reporting system. This new feature allows you to run any number of reports without the need to print them. Each report will be converted to a PDF document and stored on the iSeries IFS. When the need to retrieve them, just pull up the list of archived reports and select the ones you want to view, print, email, or remove. If disk space is an issue, the documents are very small in size, plus you have the option to only archive the ones you want archived. And we have security built in so that you can select only the people you want to have access to the report archive, down to the report level.

There are several forms of ASP business. These are:

  • A specialist or functional ASP delivers a single application, such as credit card payment processing or timesheet services;

  • A vertical market ASP delivers a solution package for a specific customer type, such as a dental practice;

  • An enterprise ASP delivers broad spectrum solutions;

  • A local ASP delivers small business services within a limited area.

The ASP model can be extremely appealing to businesses — especially small businesses and startups — because it can drastically lower the costs of software and services.

This module optimizes the flow of information and materials while increasing productivity and accuracy. It not only improves receiving, picking and shipping but the efficiency at the dock as well. Less paper, less mistakes, and you don’t have to have personnel sitting around all day keying in data. Shipping errors are significantly reduced, saving not only the cost of re-ships but it will also reduce the expense of issuing credits. With the cycle count feature you will increase the accuracy and confidence of your inventory counts. This Radio Frequency Inventory Control module enables you to easily access information such as inventory availability, receipt history, adjustment history, current allocations and open purchase orders. They are readily available at any time to the user. With the aid of the hand-held computer, the RF warehouse user can receive information on inventory items from anywhere in the warehouse, making them more efficient and saving you money!

Electronic Data Integration

Electronic communication for multiple businesses

Let us help you with that important merge. Or maybe you need to send files across the ocean.

Magnatrons Electronic Data Integration can help save you money by providing an alternative to, or replacing, information flows that require a great deal of human interaction and paper documents. Even when paper documents are maintained in parallel with EDI exchange, e.g. printed shipping manifests, electronic exchange and the use of data from that exchange reduces the handling costs of sorting, distributing, organizing, and searching paper documents. EDI and similar technologies allow a company to take advantage of the benefits of storing and manipulating data electronically without the cost of manual entry. Another advantage of EDI is the opportunity to reduce or eliminate manual data entry errors, such as shipping and billing errors, because EDI eliminates the need to rekey documents on the destination side. One very important advantage of EDI over paper documents is the speed in which the trading partner receives and incorporates the information into their system thus greatly reducing cycle times. For this reason, EDI can be an important component of just-in-time production systems.
