I know everyone talks about how great Apple’s iPhone is. I did something different yesterday.
We did our year end inventory yesterday. We use wireless scanners to control inventory, pick, ship, etc… We have a limited number of scanners to go around, and to do year end inventory we need every body we can get to count. This is a big warehouse and it takes time.
I was able to use SSH on my iPhone to connect to our scanner software that I wrote and was able to count inventory through it. Granted, it wasn’t quite as fast and convenient as the wireless scanners we use, but in a pinch it was awesome.
It’s just an amazing device that everyone should have.
