Portable Data Terminals (PDTs)

Physical Counts

The PDT is a tool used to interact with the MaXM Inventory Management System, freeing the user from the desk by allowing data entry at the site of inventory count activity. Building upon the core capabilities of the Intermec/Janus PDT, AMS offers you the customized convenience of safeguarding your valuable asset inventories with improved accuracy during physical counts. The increased efficiency will save time by generating visible audit trails, eliminating paperwork and avoiding duplication of effort.

One of the greatest assets of the MaXM Physical Counts PDT Application is the automatic issuance of user-approved inventory adjustments, based on physical 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.
