    Its that easy.

    T his latest innovation from Kramp, combines the benefits of the Kramp ScanToOrder ordering system with the multi-location convenience of an iPad. ScanToMobile is a convenient, easy-to-use scanning device that can be used to scan the barcode of the required part from the shelf label in the shop or warehouse. A Bluetooth connection between the scanner and the iPad allows the scanned bar codes to be sent directly to the Kramp Mobile application, which then converts the barcode information and displays the selected product on the screen in seconds. The required quantity can then be

    entered, and the order submitted via Kramp Mobile. The customer will receive the parts the following day.

    The benefits are clear. ScanToMobile is one of the fastest and most secure ways of ordering spare parts, and makes extensive paperwork and potential mix-ups a thing of the past. Errors

    The future continues: ScanToMobile

    Spare parts at the touch of a buttonWhether its a grainlifter for a combine harvester or a saw blade for a maize chopper, spare agricultural machinery parts are in high demand during the peak season. Searching for each individual spare part number in the warehouse or shop and then typing it into the webshop wastes valuable time. From 2013, there will be a new solution: ScanToMobile.

    An overview of the key benefits: No need for paper Eliminates incorrect orders Quick and easy ordering process Spend more time on your core business Up-to-date information on availability and delivery for products

    when entering or transferring data, which often occur when using conventional ordering methods, are ruled out by ScanToMobile, and the intelligent ordering system also saves customers a great deal of time. With ScanToMobile a single user can carry out all the necessary steps in the shortest possible time.

    With the traditional ScanToOrder system, data from the scanner is transferred to the computer via a docking station, and a special program converts the data into a file that the computer can use. With ScanToMobile , there is no need for a docking station or any additional software, a scanner, an iPad and the Kramp Mobile application are all that is needed to transfer data from the scanner to Kramp in a quick and simple process.

    Users seeking to introduce the ScanToMobile system can rely on experienced specialists in Customer Support who are on hand to provide detailed advice on the functions of the system and how to use it. Tel.: +44 (0) 1767 602602, email: [email protected]

    This service will be available from 2013.
