BARCODE ORDERING SYSTEMUSE ANYWHERE
FairScan can be used in any environment where orders are taken
The FairScan Barcode Ordering System was originally designed for use at Trade Fairs, but it can be used in any environment where orders are taken including Trade Fairs anywhere in the world, Showrooms, popup sales events and out on the road with sales reps and agents.
The benefit of using FairScan for order taking is that by scanning a barcode you are reducing the possibility of a ordering the wrong item as well as eliminating the situation where the office staff can’t read the order takers messy handwriting.
FairScan also assists in the processing of orders as traditionally businesses would have to wait until they have entered all of the orders into their Accounting System before they can determine if they need to place additional orders with their suppliers. Now with the use of live statistics and reports, you can see exactly how many of each item has been ordered and therefore place further orders with suppliers if required.
The FairScan Barcode Ordering System can be used anywhere orders can be taken including:
FairScan can be used at any Trade Fair
anywhere in the world
Use in your Showroom when customers
visit you to place an order
REP & AGENTS
Reps and Agents can scan out of catalogues and then
receive an email copy of the order taken
FairScan can be used at any Trade Fair anywhere in the world
By using a handheld unit to scan barcodes at a Trade Show, most users report that they take bigger orders faster. This is often attributed to your customer only having a short period of time to place an order on your stand. By scanning you capture that order faster and the customer isn’t waiting for you to write down codes, descriptions and prices.
Your customers will also appreciate the use of the FairScan system as they are able to give their order faster as well as receiving a detailed copy of their order immediately upon completion. Visit Order Print & Email Confirmation Formats for samples of the print out formats that are available. Their confidence in receiving what they orders is also increased.
It is also possible to email orders mid fair back to the office so that they can be imported into your system. This enables urgent orders to be packed and shipped ASAP and can sometimes lead to the customer’s order arriving to their shop before they have returned from the Fair themselves!
Use in your Showroom when customers visit you to place an order
The FairScan Ordering System can be easily set up in your Showroom so that when customers visit their orders can be taken via the handheld and immediately loaded into your Accounting System.
This is particularly handy when customers wish to place an order and take it with them.
FairScan also works well with Agencies and Distributors that display and have customers order your products.
ONROAD WITH REPS/AGENTS
Reps and Agents can scan out of catalogues and then receive an email copy of the order taken
Using the FairScan Ordering System out on the road eliminates the need for sales reps to fax multiple pages of messy handwritten orders each night. Reps can send their orders from the handheld back to the office via the Internet. Updated information such as new products or new customers is sent back to the handheld during this sync.
When the orders are received by the office an automatic email including a pdf copy of the orders will be sent back to the nominated email address for that agent/rep. This confirms to the user that the office has received their orders and enables them to forward copies to the customer if required.
The FairScan Application can export orders immediately as they are downloaded from the handheld. This enables particular Accounting Systems to automatically import these orders into their system eliminating the need for user intervention. This option is not available to all Accounting Systems and therefore user interaction may be required. Usually the manual process of uploading orders into the Accounting System will take a user less than 5 minutes each day.
