How DSI ScanWorkX® Optimizes Microsoft D365

Posted by on August 24, 2020 1:42 pm

The onslaught of the COVID-19 pandemic has tested every part of the supply chain. We’ve all quickly learned what can happen when supply chains cannot meet the demands of customers or adapt to changing environments.

If you are like many companies struggling to meet the demands of your customers in a timely manner, it’s time to reevaluate your supply chain. For those who have already invested in the Azure Cloud and Microsoft Dynamics 365, you’re on the path to a more efficient, adaptive supply chain. Taking the next step with DSI® ScanWorkX® and contactless capabilities can be the difference in achieving optimized processes.

What is ScanWorkX?

ScanWorkX was built from the ground up within the powerful Microsoft .NET architecture and is highly integrated into the Microsoft Dynamics 365 solution. The user interface is hardware independent, easy to use, and user friendly. ScanWorkX supports more than 50 standard transactions with and without barcode readers. Advanced transaction logic boosts productivity and streamlines system workflows. Process steps are logically combined to speed transaction validation and completion using barcodes, lists of values, and directed logic.

ScanWorkX is the first curated mobile data collection solution accessible on Microsoft AppSource, with the security and dependability you can expect from a cloud-based app. Available as a standalone virtual server or bundled with DSI’s Enterprise Printing Platform™ (EPP), DSI ScanWorkX is certified to run on Microsoft Azure. Fully integrated in the Application Object Table (AOT), DSI ScanWorkX becomes a part of the Dynamics 365 for Operations system without overwriting native components. Administrators can configure the mobile device from within the client. With the management monitoring and messaging system you can reach any user and maintain a view of every action occurring in the system.

What does ScanWorkX look like in action?

ScanWorkX has proven success in enhancing Microsoft D365 capabilities by creating value, accuracy, and efficiencies across operational processes. Nonin Medical, the inventor of finger pulse oximetry, has taken data collection response times from minutes to seconds with ScanWorkX. As a global leader in noninvasive medical devices, Nonin Medical must fully comply with strict regulatory requirements in manufacturing. They use DSI to automate and enhance WHS performance with asynchronous processing that ensures crisp system response times for each transaction. With ScanWorkX, Nonin Medical has:

  • Reduced mobile device response times from minutes to less than 1 second
  • Increased speed and accuracy of data capture
  • Reduced labor costs to perform physical inventory with efficient serial number processing

In Part 2 of this series, “Simplify your Warehouse Configuration,” we’ll continue to showcase the value and efficiency that ScanWorkX enables within your business. You will learn how ScanWorkX bridges the gap between WHS and WMS with what we call a “Hybrid” approach.
