Once it is setup, users can quickly enter in parts to the Dealer Management System to sell to a parts invoice, receipt parts into the DMS, and perform inventory checks.

The Honeywell barcode scanner is small and light-weight, so it can go anywhere your wireless network can reach. This time saver is a must for anyone who wants to manage their parts more effectively. Contact DDS at 800.382.3733 to find out how you can get your barcode scanner and enter those parts accurately and efficiently!
