Manufacturers and distributors from across the UK were recently given the opportunity to experience mobile ERP first hand at an exclusive event held by K3 Syspro (K3).

K3's Keyless Data Entry event was held at Warwickshire's Heritage Motor Centre last week and showcased mobile, touch, specialised, ruggedised and conventional data collection technology solutions. The occasion gave visitors a chance to gain valuable hands-on experience of the latest touch screen and mobile data entry devices to help increase shop floor productivity and efficiency, and experience for themselves how K3 is streamlining the manufacturing and production process with its innovative range of mobile ERP software.

Delegates were shown some of the cutting edge technological advancements included in K3's own mobile ERP solution and saw how this compared with third party applications. They were then given the opportunity to get hands on with K3's extensive range of touch devices for themselves in a designated product testing room. Also on display at the event was K3 Syspro's Advanced Planning and Scheduling (APS) solution, and a sample of K3's extensive range of touch devices.

K3's mobile platform is one of the first of its kind to use a single source codebase to create native applications for any mobile device, with built-in powerful customisation capabilities for both the end user and developers to engage. It allows warehouse managers to manage the entire supply chain process remotely at any time, in any place.

Managing Director Andy Latham was delighted to welcome such a large number of attendees at the event. He said: "ERP is constantly evolving and the supply chain process has gained momentum over the last couple of years. Instant access to information is now crucial to warehouse managers and it was clear to see from the amount of people who attended our event that mobile ERP is really in demand."

Phil Robson, Operations Manager at label printing and label finishing machinery suppliers AB Graphic International is an existing customer of K3 and benefitted from the event. He said: "I found the day both helpful and informative. It consolidated my belief that adding automation via wireless technology can not only add value by reducing time spent but can also eradicate many human errors."
