Distribution One Unveils VMI Scanner App Allowing Simple, Portable Order Entry

The in-house app – published to the App Store and Google Play – is Distribution One’s third major app and uses Bluetooth to sync with popular bar code scanners, allowing for fast and accurate data capture.


Mount Laurel, NJ – The push into mobile ERP continues as Distribution One publishes its VMI Scanner app to the Apple App Store and Google Play – both as free downloads making it available for iPhone and Android users. To be used exclusively by Distribution One’s customers, VMI Scanner takes a major step in mobilizing the powerful data solutions in ERP-ONE.

VMI (Vendor Managed Inventory) is an industry method whereby a wholesaler or distributor maintains the inventory and ordering process on behalf of its customers. Because the ordering process is electronic, it eliminates errors that stem from manual keying of information. With compatibility for Motorola’s popular Symbol handheld bar code scanner and a wireless connection to the mobile app, ordering is as simple as entering part numbers or scanning bar codes.

“We’re putting a lot of focus on creating mobile solutions, because it’s what distributors – our customers – are finding most valuable,” said Larry Ward, President of Distribution One. “VMI has become a proven model for optimizing inventory levels and speeding up the ordering process, and getting that into people’s hands in the form of a mobile app is a big step forward.”
