Small Businesses Can Grasp Unprecedented Control Of Their Inventories With Updated Software From Wasp Barcode Technologies

Wasp Inventory Control v4 helps companies increase sales, control costs and reduce overstocks - quickly and easily with a barcode-enabled solution

PLANO, Texas - August 21, 2007 - With its newly released Wasp Inventory Control v4, Wasp Barcode Technologies is empowering small businesses to effectively manage all aspects of inventory. This updated software, which is also available in complete solutions that include a mobile scanning device and barcode printer, offers the extensive features of an enterprise-level inventory control product without a hefty price tag or complex implementation.

Packed with new functionality, Inventory Control v4 helps business owners know exactly
how much inventory they have, where it is located, and what's moving and what's not. With Inventory Control v4, small businesses will experience increased sales, reduced costs associated with write-downs and write-offs, improved customer service, and increased value of their companies.

"Small businesses can be absolutely overwhelmed when trying to effectively manage
inventory," said Steve Coffman, president of Wasp Barcode Technologies. "Without an effective inventory solution, it's far too easy for a business owner to think inventory is in good shape. Yet in reality, inventory can't be found, is unexpectedly out of stock, or drastically overstocked.

With this new version of Inventory Control, small businesses can dramatically streamline the entire inventory control process, from searching for items to labeling, picking and shipping them."

The easy-to-use software is ideal for all sizes of small businesses, from individual
contractors to larger operations with multiple warehouse locations and mobile trucks. For example, the solution is used in warehouses, light manufacturing and distribution centers, retailers, stock rooms, supply closets, and inventory-carrying trucks such as TV or satellite installation.

With the updated version, Inventory Control offers an updated and easier-to-navigate user interface, as well as new list reports, an improved database and updated labeling software. This improved usability will make it even easier to track inventory by location, serial number and other variables, perform inventory audits, assist in a cycle count process, as well as create barcode labels and inventory tags.

Wasp Inventory Control v4 is available in three versions. The Standard (Std) version
offers one PC license and one mobile license, as well as 60 management reports. Features of the Standard version include a streamlined and refreshed user interface, a Microsoft SQL Express database, new data lists and more.

The Professional (Pro) version builds on the features in Standard by providing users with five PC licenses and one mobile license. In addition, Pro users benefit from unit breakdowns during receiving, new picking functionality, the capability to designate multiple suppliers per item, and the ability to create purchase orders - even automatically once stock falls below a designated level. New receiving features enable users to quickly receive purchase orders as they come in, with the flexibility to accept partial shipments and create back orders. As a result, inventory can be matched against purchases to reduce errors.

Also available is an Enterprise version, which includes the same features as Pro but offers unlimited PC user licenses, includes five mobile licenses and runs on Microsoft SQL Server Database.

For a complete solution, customers can choose from a wide range of packages that
include hardware items such as a mobile scanning device, barcode scanner and barcode printer, in addition to Inventory Control software. The mobile solutions include the new Wasp WDT3200 or WDT2200 mobile device, which allows users to scan and update inventory in the field or warehouse and then synch the data with a PC. Business owners can be assured that they get a complete solution: inventory software, a scanning device and a barcode printer from one source that works together.

Wasp Inventory Control v4 is available immediately at a list price of $595 for the
Standard version, $1,495 for the Professional version, and $2,995 for the Enterprise version. Complete solutions with software, a barcode scanner and barcode printer start at $1,095. Mobile solutions with software and a WDT2200 mobile scanning device start at $1,395, while a complete mobile solution that includes software, a mobile device and barcode printer starts at $1,995.

Wasp Inventory Control v4 replaces Wasp's previous MobileInventory product. Current
Wasp inventory customers can upgrade their older products for prices ranging from $195 to $995, depending upon their current software version.

Wasp Inventory Control v4 software and complete solutions can be purchased from direct
marketing retailers such as CDW, TigerDirect, PC Connection and Insight as well as through focused AIDC vendors such as SystemID Warehouse. They are also available through computer resellers including WaspLink(TM) value-added resellers (VARs).
