STOCK+ a sound investment for Rycote Microphone Windshields
'.. the mobility of the system is great, and the time saved, both through quicker (automated) data entry, reduction of paper work, and reduced errors has been brilliant. The close integration of this product with Sage is fantastic..'

Stock Management and Barcoding Integration to Sage.
In 2005 Rycote realised that they wanted to track and manage stock moving through the company using an electronic system.
Several options were considered, and it was decided to use Stock + from Beacon Link Limited.
Integrating closely with Rycote’s Sage Line 50 and Manufacturing software, Stock + enabled staff at Rycote to handle all stock movements at the point of contact electronically using a wirelessly connected mobile terminal. Stock-take lists are created and assigned to staff.
Paperwork Eliminated, Errors greatly reduced
By implementing Stock +, Rycote have seen a dramatic increase in the speed at which they are able to handle despatch and delivery. Confidence in the stock levels within Sage has soared and staff have taken to the rugged mobile terminal with ease.
