RFolution!

Wireless RF Barcode Reader integration to existing Windows software made easy

Linking portable barcode readers directly into your existing Windows software using 802.11 wireless RF technology is a great idea. Your barcode readers become an extension in real time of your PC network. No more returning to a download cradle as with a batch portable, except for recharging.

The trouble is that until now, implementing such a system was complex, time consuming, and expensive, and locked you into particular hardware.

With RFolution! installed on your PC, you can develop and test wireless RF applications simply and easily.

Linking portable barcode readers directly into your existing Windows software using 802.11 wireless RF technology is a great idea. Your barcode readers become an extension in real time of your PC network. No more returning to a download cradle as with a batch portable, except for recharging.

The RF barcode readers can potentially query your accounting system directly and immediately, or write collected information straight to a disk file, or email your supplier to confirm receipt of goods (or just about anything else you can think of).

The trouble is that until now, implementing such a system was complex, time consuming, and expensive, and locked you into particular hardware. First, a special Site Survey was needed to check radio operation, then Remapping software to squeeze part of a video terminal screen into the much smaller Barcode Reader screen. An alternative was the insertion of drivers into your software, but what if you didn’t have source code? None of these special services were low cost, so no wonder RF solutions were only found in the warehouses and supermarkets of large companies with big budgets.

RFolution! (pronounced “ref-olution”) addresses these issues, at a time when hardware prices are also trending down. So what are you waiting for?

With RFolution! installed on your PC, you can develop and test wireless RF applications without any hardware! Your applications can seamlessly integrate to Windows applications using ODBC, ADO, or virtually any other connectivity standard. Once your application is developed you will also be able to run it on hardware from multiple vendors. You might even be able to modify one of our sample programs to suit your needs.

Whether you are a hardware vendor, a software developer, or an end user, RFolution! solves the problems wireless RF data collection systems for those using PC networks. And by doing so, it’ll save you time and money.

RFolution! is a Windows PC program that allows you to:

  • Create and test programs to operate RF Portable Barcode Readers (even without RF equipment!)
  • Conduct simple Site Surveys to check coverage of your RF network.
  • Actually deploy applications, with RFolution! acting as a complete software backbone for your RF system now and in the future.

“Thank you so much for your prompt service. Appreciated. I wish all our other external stakeholders are like you and your colleagues, and now I can realise why my boss calls ASP “effective and efficient”. Excellent and thank you again.”

ASP Microcomputers and Signature Software team up to deliver an intuitive stocktake solution for Telstra Retail Stores.

“I continue to be impressed… we have 3 locations and we have had to undertake quite a few processes to complete our monthly stock takes. Firstly we had to have all staff stay back for a minimum of 5 hours after work to run a complete store stock take. Then we were informed of a new portable barcode scanner, the Casio DT-X7. Our monthly stock takes are now completed in less than 1 hour… I couldn’t believe how efficient and quick it was to perform a stock take. I never thought it would be possible and I cannot thank you guys enough for introducing us to such a great product and offering the highest level of support.”
Sarah Wilson,
Operations Manager
TLS Malvern & Moonee Ponds

Overview

There are almost 200 Telstra Licensed Stores and Telstra Dealers Australia wide. These businesses sell mobile communication devices and service contracts under the Telstra brand name. In addition they sell home and consumer products for the fixed and data networks.

Stocktakes are usually conducted monthly, and need to be done quickly and without errors. Users need to count serialised and non-serialised inventory, as well as having a visual reference between the stock scanned and its corresponding description in the PC program.

Signature’s flagship product, the ICE Business System, has been developed specifically for use in the office equipment, telephone systems and mobile phone industries.
