Let us help you unlock the full potential of your SAP ERP system with barcode driven software and hardware. Enhance the functionality of SAP with specialist logistics modules and industry leading data capture hardware. Whether you’re using SAP Business One, SAP ECC or S4 HANA, we can provide a barcoded solution for your business.
Installing an SAP ERP solution is a huge financial and operational investment, however many systems are under-utilised and don't achieve the commercial gains that they should, due to a lack of functionality within logistical processes and visual prompts to users. Our logistics solutions ensure your business gets the most out of SAP, introducing a mobile system, driven by barcodes, which eliminates the need for paper and allows information to be updated in real-time, with 100% accuracy. Significant savings in both time and operator effort can be achieved following implementation, as workers no longer need to return to the office to update the system and pick up new task details. Modern mobile devices using Android operating systems, have the look and feel of mobile phones, so users are quick to adapt and employee motivation can be improved by the use of intuitive screens, rather than the cumbersome and complex SAP screens, they may currently be battling with.
At Barcode-IT we offer full SAP logistics solutions, including data capture hardware, software apps to improve supply chain functionality, wireless networking and barcode label printing solutions. Contact us on 01200 441977 to discuss your requirements today or find further information below.

Scanning Barcodes Into SAP
Barcode-IT provide a full range of hand held terminals and mobile computers, to power SAP operations throughout the work space, from industry giants, including Zebra, Datalogic and Honeywell.
Mobile computers and terminals are connected in "real-time" to SAP and allow the operator to complete the transaction directly into SAP, without leaving his location in the business. Devices are fitted with powerful barcode scanners to allow data to be effortlessly and 100% accurately input into SAP by scanning product, pallet and location barcodes. There is no middleware (translation software) required as the terminal uses an SAP mobile screen utility or SAP approved APP to guide the operator through a series of menu driven transactions at all times providing information from SAP itself and returning operator inputs directly back into SAP.
Looking to upgrade to new data capture devices, but unsure whether your existing software can be used with the Android OS used on the majority of modern devices? No problem. We work alongside companies like Ivanti, who have produced sophisticated software products that ensure Android migration is seamless and brings the mobile web interface forward to leverage the touchscreen experiences your employees expect on Android. Using Velocity Browser, powered by Wavelink, there's no need for middleware between your mobile devices and your host. Implementation is simple and fast.
Barcode-IT have developed the expertise to help you make an informed choice about the right mobile computers for your business and budget, based on usage, application and environment. You can view some of the mobile computers and wearable devices we recommend here or call us on 01200 441977 to discuss your needs or arrange a demonstration.
Barcode Label Printing For SAP
Producing barcoded labels using data stored in SAP couldn't be simpler when using printing solutions from Barcode-IT. Our combination of intelligent barcode design software, high quality thermal printers and years of experience integrating with SAP, means that achieving accurately printed barcode labels is simple.
Our customers quickly see the benefits of an integrated label printing system, including improved accuracy in information displayed on labels, higher customer satisfaction and increased efficiency and productivity. Our software integrates directly into your SAP system, through a certified connector and triggers printing, ensuring that all data is correct and is not duplicated. From the operator's point of view, label printing couldn't be easier, as they either simply press print or the system can be configured to print automatically.
Benefits of automated barcode printing include:
Eliminate mistakes caused through human error - as data is taken directly from SAP there is no need for manual inputting of data.
Seamless integration means that you don't need to change your business processes, retrain users or implement new transactions.
Eliminate the need for third party assistance; reducing costs and improving response times for producing new labels, label amendments and complying with customer requests. Produce new label templates in minutes, not days!
No coding required - the software integrates with SAP script, Smart Forms, Interactive Forms and ABAP Reports to avoid the need for complex coding and software programming.
Instant deployment to all new printers - over 2500 different printer makes and models are supported by our software and can be added to the system in minutes.
Multiple labels can be produced from a single transaction, freeing up operators and increasing productivity.
Powerful business rules give flexibility - produce bespoke label designs to comply with varying customer specific requests and regulations.
Save valuable time by previewing “finished labels” containing label templates and master data from inside SAP. You can also maintain an electronic archive of finished labels. Rapid printing requires labels on-demand. Instant “first label out” capabilities don’t place a burden or strain on the SAP spooler resulting in no SAP spooler lag. Take on-demand printing to new levels of efficiency with real-time status notifications. You no longer need to check the spooler, printer or job error state. Confirmed delivery reduces help desk calls.
The label management system comes with a ready-to-use ABAP package that enables print previews of the label template with master data.
Everything happens within the SAP system’s user interface
Tight integration without writing code
ABAP package can be transported into a SAP system within seconds
Streamlined SAP label printing process in a matter of hours
A document management system (DMS), a fully-integrated part of the label management system, gives you a centralised database of all of your label templates. You get a complete version history on all templates, built-in change request and approval workflows and complete visibility regarding everyone who has accessed, changed and printed labels in your organization. Our DMS digitizes your entire quality assurance process and gives you all the history and documentation you need to perform quality control.
Our label management system has built-in filters and business rules for SAPscript’s Raw Data Interface (RDI) and XML for Smart Forms (XSF) format. There’s no need to purchase costly, complex external connectors. With our label management system, you have everything you need to roll out a fully digitized label printing and production process without writing a single line of ABAP.
Do your staff complain of data capture devices or mobile printers losing their WiFi signal, meaning that they can't perform tasks? Is important data lost, causing administrative issues? Or is frustration causing device damage or a loss of faith in your ERP system? If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then it might be time to health check your wireless infrastructure.
At Barcode-IT, our expertise extends to every aspect of the supply chain and one of the most common issues we hear from customers is operational complications from data capture devices dropping out and losing connection within the warehouse or production facility. Often the cause of this is the WiFi coverage provided by the existing network infrastructure; either not being suitable for industrial data capture devices or having drop out zones or failed access points.
As a Cisco partner, we are able to provide and recommend the best access points and positioning to ensure wireless infrastructure is optimised for both the environment and the devices being used in your warehouse/distribution centre. Our experts have helped some of the UK's biggest companies rectify WiFi issues, including L'Oreal, Bentley Motors and Mexichem.
Additionally, our wireless experts are able to survey, design and install wireless networks into new warehouses, to aid expansion or for those who have not previously had an industrial wireless network installed.

Transitioning from Windows to Android to run with our SAP solution has been really seamless - we've had no problems at all converting our existing applications. Our system is now future proof and we no longer have to worry about down time caused by ageing devices, so we couldn't be happier.
Paul Brough, Boughey Distribution Ltd.
Barcode-IT gave us excellent advice when migrating from Windows to Android hand held terminals to run with SAP. Following a site visit we were left with fully configured equipment to trial and on-going technical support, whilst the proof of concept had been completed, which in the end saved us a significant amount on the project. They are now our primary partner for supplying solutions that drive our SAP warehouse operations.
