Portable Data Terminals (PDTs)

Cycle Counts

The PDT is a tool used to interact with both the MaXM Inventory and Patient Chargeables system, freeing the user from the desk by allowing data entry at the site of inventory activity. Building upon the core capabilities of the Intermec/Janus PDT, AMS offers you the customized convenience of performing cycle counts of your hospital stock. The goal of cycle counting is the elimination of taking a physical inventory, or at the very least, a reduction in the need to rely solely on a single physical inventory to know the status of your stock. Cycle counting has proven to be a valuable tool in the monitoring of asset inventories, and in achieving accuracy goals.

One of the greatest assets of the MaXM Cycle Counts PDT Application is the automatic issuance of user-approved inventory adjustments, based on cycle count vs. on-hand quantity discrepancies. This option generates an audit trail, everything becomes a transaction: Accounting can see it, Materials Managers can see it -- while MaXM maintains the integrity of the entire database.
