BarControl Enterprise Manager
MegaPath implements BarControl Enterprise Manager
MegaPath, located in Austin, Texas, with other locations in California and Connecticut chose BarControl’s iBEM to meet their Warehouse Management and Supply Chain software requirements. A fast growing company dealing in value added networking solutions, MegaPath was in need of a Order Management system. MegaPath chose the BarControl Enterprise Manager to meet their current requirements in Texas and their other locations in the future.
Installed at their Austin, Texas location, BarControl Enterprise Manager is used to perform one primary function with the flexibility to perform in two different manners. The primary function of the iBEM system is to process the networking hardware orders for new and upgrade installations. Different from most installations, some orders are true equipment sales and some are equipment leases, and all require lab configurations prior to shipment. The flexibility of BarControl Enterprise Manager shows in the handling of the orders, as leased equipment remains in inventory but converts to field assets once shipped to the client site.
MegaPath uses the Inventory module to maintain the levels and locations of the equipment. The Requisition and Purchasing modules automatically maintain inventory levels while the Order Management and Shipping modules process and track the orders. BarControl Enterprise Manager was configured and installed with the flexibility to perform transactions on workstations such as at configuration lab work areas or utilizing hand held RF units from Motorola in the warehouse areas.
With hardware warranty tracking and sales versus leased equipment being inventory issues for MegaPath, BarControl Enterprise Manager with its superior level of inventory tracking detail was a perfect fit. Product identifiers such as serial numbers, digital serial numbers, and other hardware and client identifiers with cross referencing come standard with iBEM. Along with that BarControl Enterprise Manager has the flexibility to grow with their fast growing operation and changing requirements.
