EstLite version 8.17

Postby Bagpuss » Sun Oct 21, 2012 12:02 pm

I haven't updated EstLite for ages and now have version 8.17 and I'm going to spend a bit of time looking at stuff I probably should have started using years ago ( like the postcode checker thingy ).
I have noticed that a barcode is being printed on the left hand corner of printed invoices, not a big problem but I was wondering what it's used for ? ( I did check that it wasn't just my printer, it doesn't do it on other prints from my PC )
Thanks in advance,
Adam/Bagpuss

Hi Adam,

Scanning the barcode of the framing docket makes life easier by giving you instant access to some of the most often used workshop and POS functions.

For example: -
  • Enter payment in the cash register and mark job collected
  • Find customer in database and re-use their details for another job
  • Re-use docket for a repeat job for the same customer
  • Text customer that job is ready
  • Email customer that job is ready
  • Flag job as complete
  • Apply a coloured highlight to a job, indicating the job’s status, such as - Order Chop, Moulding Out Of Stock, Moulding On Order, etc

thanks for the swift reply John, this sounds of great interest, I'm sure I'm only using EstLite to a fraction of it's ability.
I have never had a bar code reader John, can you or any other EstLite users suggest one for a beginner please ? I've always wanted
a bar code reader :clap: how sad is that ??

Thanks again,
Adam

We have two scanners - bought of eBay.
A laser type (around £30) that does a very fast scan, and An LED type (£13) that is a bit slower but does the job just fine. Both are plug-and-play, (no drivers needed for WIN7, Vista, XP), and both worked out of the box with EstLite.

Anything more expensive is probably overkill for our purposes, though a cordless one might be nice.
