Jovix 2017.12 Release Notes

Mobile App – Supplier Staging Barcode Scanning Via Mobile Device Camera

Until now, Jovix mobile app users had to rely on having a separate, costly peripheral device to scan barcodes. Barcodes are an integral piece of Jovix’s overall value as being a convenient, accessible point of reference for Materials, Shipping Units, RFID tags, and Named Locations. Being able to utilize the native mobile shell camera to scan barcodes allows the user to no longer require the additional hardware. This both frees up a hand for the end user and consolidates focus on the app itself – providing a more safe, reliable, and convenient work environment.

Mobile scan via native camera is now available at the following locations within Supplier Staging:

  • Primary/default screen
  • Filter screen and Quick filter
  • Primary workflow – Scan RFID tag
  • Shipping Unit options:
    • Scan RFID tag
    • Search for existing Shipping Unit
Mobile App – Track & Trace – Scan barcode via the mobile device camera

The following features were added to the Track & Trace aspects of the mobile app:

  • Item Lookup
    • Search for Material
    • Find – Scan to verify Found Material which provides a visual indicator to let the user know that they’ve found the correct Material
    • Named Location – Scan Named Location barcode
  • Item Update
    • Named Location Option – Scan Named Location barcode
    • Scan RFID tag
    • Scan first Material
    • Scan next Material
