Implementing mobile applications for IBMi systems 

The challenge 

One of our customers wanted to move away from a paper-based receipt system in their Goods In department. This would improve efficiency as currently the paper receipts were then passed to the admin department to be keyed into the IBMi system, if they could be entered electronically in the warehouse then it means the data is available faster and less prone to transcription errors. They used an IBMi server running V5R4 software with a bespoke ERP solution but didn’t want to tie the warehouse staff to desks with terminals/PCs/laptops so the option to move around the warehouse was key. 

The immediate concern was for stock received direct from suppliers, once the solution was accepted, they hoped to also implement into transfers between sites.
