With Wasp Countit, Wasp Barcode Technologies Takes Inventory Counting Process For Small Businesses From Two Days To Two Hours

Portable barcode scanner combined with easy-to-use inventory software makes counting, reconciling inventory faster and more accurate

PLANO, Texas - March 8, 2007 - Small businesses can stop wasting endless hours counting and reconciling inventory, thanks to the new Wasp CountIt(TM) inventory software solution from Wasp Barcode Technologies. Available immediately, Wasp CountIt brings together powerful inventory software and a mobile device to make counting and reconciling inventory faster and more accurate.

Most small businesses rely on accounting programs or Excel spreadsheets to track inventory, yet most of these software programs do not work with portable data collectors to verify that inventory quantities are accurate. As a result, businesses must use a manual process: laboriously counting inventory by hand, attempting to reconcile actual inventory counts with what was thought to be on hand, and then re-keying actual quantities back into an accounting program or spreadsheet. This is a time-consuming and error-prone process.

With Wasp CountIt, a company's existing inventory data can be electronically sent to the Wasp WDT2200 portable data collector. This portable barcode scanning device then can be used to quickly scan barcodes to count inventory items. After the inventory is counted, Wasp CountIt transfers the new inventory data back to a PC, updating the user's existing inventory file and creating a variation report if needed.

"Wasp CountIt leverages barcode technology to count inventory and then automatically synchs with QuickBooks, to dramatically reduce the time that employees spend performing physical counts, cycle counts, and monthly or year-end inventory counts," said Steve Coffman, president of Wasp Barcode Technologies. "We've had a large-volume eBay seller heartily endorse the product, saying that Wasp CountIt completely changed the way they conducted their business. On top of saving time, companies that use CountIt also can be much more confident that their inventory numbers are accurate."

For inventory that does not already carry barcodes, Wasp CountIt allows users to print barcode labels to speed the process. In addition, multiple handheld devices can be used to scan inventory items, with all data quickly integrated into a single file.
Wasp CountIt includes the rugged WDT2200 portable data collector with integrated barcode scanner (laser or CCD), as well as inventory software for the WDT2200 and one PC. It is available immediately at a list price of $1,099 for the laser barcode scanner version of the WDT2200 or $999 for the CCD LR barcode scanner version. Wasp CountIt is certified as a QuickBooks Silver application. It can be purchased from direct marketing retailers such as CDW, TigerDirect, PC Connection and Insight. It is also available through computer resellers including WaspLinkÔ value-added resellers (VARs) and other leading retailers.
