DPS PocketFlash Mobile Computing

Targets the mobile field force: remote territory reps and route sales reps/drivers. Typical use begins with data synchronization, extracting data from the ERP application to populate the Sales Rep data files on the handheld device. The Customer, Product, and Pricing database on the handheld may then be used for field order entry supporting both deliver now (from the truck) or deliver later (from the warehouse) scenarios. Designed to work off line from the ERP programs, PocketFlash holds transactions for later transmission to the ERP applications. Updating also may occur over cellular connection, wireless LAN, or via modem/docking station. The same connection options may be used for real-time order inquiry that provides direct access to the order summary and order detail data from the ERP application.
