The workflow is clearly defined: Fist of all, the data is imported into the Resco Asset Inventory. Then, particular room is picked up either manually or by barcode scanner. All inventories in the room can be scanned or added manually. At the end, the data is exported to the external database. The Functional part enables inventory management itself.

Conclusion

There is plenty of solutions of similar kind in the global mobile software market. Most of them are offered by vendors with strict run-time licensing directly to end-customers. Resco, on the contrary, targets Integrators and Vendors that do not have much experience with mobile solutions development. Thus the development process would take them too much time and cause unnecessary complications. Utilization of Resco Asset Inventory prototype with source code and customization opportunities creates perfect start-up for successful inventory management application development.
