Master System Releases Pocket OMS V2.0, Wirelessly Connecting Wholesalers, Distributors with Customers



New release features on-board graphics, FTP server connectivity, bar code scanning, multiple modes of sales order entry and inventory counting

ARCADIA, Ca., July 9 /-- Master System (http://www.mastersystem.com/), the market leader in integrated software for wholesalers and distributors, today announced the release of its newest edition of Pocket OMS(TM), specifically designed to let wholesalers and distributors process sales orders more effectively and efficiently, through the use of wireless handheld devices. Pocket OMS delivers a full range of enhanced benefits, such as wireless FTP file transferring, on-board graphics (including product photos), improved sales reporting, reduced file maintenance and inventory counting efficiency, by allowing companies to remotely enter orders into their fulfillment system in a fraction of the time previously required.

Integrated with Master System's eMaster(TM) Solution Suite, Pocket OMS enables the wireless transfer of in-stock inventories, UPC bar codes, and item photo images directly from a central OMS inventory file to a handheld device with a simple tap on the screen. Pocket OMS also transfers customer file and chain store files into device memory in a highly compressed format, turning any compatible handheld wireless device into a self-contained data center. Like other components in the eMaster Solution Suite, Pocket OMS is designed to meet the specific supply chain fulfillment and integrated back-office requirements of key vertical industries such as clothing, footwear, general merchandising and more.

"Trade shows represent a major source of new customers and new business from our existing customers. While we're there, we're under constant pressure to quickly process orders; manually entering orders can often result in the loss of customers who don't have the time to wait," said Steve Tseng, sales manager at Unison Gifts, a globally recognized distributor of fine giftware. "Pocket OMS will allow us to rapidly accurately enter orders and edit our data wirelessly and on the fly. It will save us time and earn us additional revenue."

With wireless transfer support via an FTP server, Pocket OMS users can use bar code scanning to instantly create, process and transfer sales orders from a conference floor, a showroom or the field to corporate servers through real- time, secured two-way communication. Pocket OMS also enables users without access to an FTP server to wirelessly transfer data to either a local or corporate server. It also allows new customers to be added with seconds, empowering companies to quickly print orders, establish credit limits and terms.

Pocket OMS also includes Master System's Easy-Count inventory counting tool, which simplifies and supports the bar scanning of items, boxes and cases. Warehouse personnel can easily and wirelessly transfer inventory and cycle counts to an OMS supply-chain inventory file with screen tap on their handheld device.

"Maximizing supply chain processing and fulfillment is key to success in today's market for wholesalers and distributors," said Robert Greenberg, Master System's Executive Vice President. "To succeed, they need to respond to their customers' needs more rapidly than ever, wherever that takes them. Pocket OMS leverages technological advances, like ubiquitous wireless access, to ensure that orders will be rapidly entered. Rapid entry means rapid fulfillment, which is key to keeping customers and expanding a business in today's hyper-competitive environment."
