STL Technology Solutions is working with cash and carry operator Forward Wholesale to pilot a new scan-to-order solution for Forward’s customers.
Sudbury-based Forward Wholesale is offering customers use of key-fob sized Symbol Consumer Memory Scanners from Motorola.
With these units, retailers can point, click and scan the barcodes of products they want to re-order. They then slot the scanner into their computer’s USB port.
This automatically brings up an order form from STL’s online ordering system, Order Wizard, already filled out with the product details they have just scanned.
They can adjust and confirm the quantity they want to purchase, and the order is then dispatched to STL’s Sales Order Processing system at Forward Wholesale.
