Original Press Release:
Autocrib Releases Software Update: Autocrib 5.2
Santa Ana, CA - AutoCrib has released its new client/server inventory management software application, AutoCrib 5.2. This release has been rewritten for Microsoft SQL Server 2005 building upon its predecessor's SQL Server 2000 technology. It provides enterprise class database stability in large networked AutoCrib environments, as well as increased security and flexibility in communicating with external information systems.
As with previous versions, AutoCrib 5.2 is capable of managing AutoCrib's extensive line of point of use dispensing systems as well as traditional cribs and stores. Release 5.2 contains in excess of fifty new features and subsystems. Some of these new features:
o Search capability has been enhanced to allow wildcard (%, &) search across all text fields
o Allows for free-form entry of PO line items
o External PO field to reference external purchasing system PO# (i.e.: P21 PO#)
o Allows Spot Buys to flow through inspection
o Changes a bin number throughout the database, including history
o Intelligent Reference Manual that automatically goes to the correct page in the manual to help you with the module you are using.
AutoCrib will begin shipping their system PCs with MS SQL Express 2005 in place of the MS SQL Desktop Engine (MSDE). This database allows for 10 concurrent connections when using the Windows XP operating system, opposed to only 5 with MSDE. Although this may eliminate the need to invest in a complete SQL Server for many mid-range users, it does not change the AutoCrib software licensing requirements that go along with larger systems.
AutoCrib is based in Santa Ana, California, and has been in business since 1995. The company is a pioneer in point-of-use dispensing systems and software solutions that solve many common inventory management problems related to tooling, safety supplies and MRO items. AutoCrib has an excellent reputation for outstanding technical support and customer service for both large and small clients.
