How everything started
At FiduciaSoft, we aspire to build successful long-term partnerships in the field of software development. And we have been working with Scanco for 4 years already.
Scanco has been a prominent leader in barcode, warehouse and manufacturing automation since 1989. They work with Sage 100/Sage 100cloud, Sage 500, and Acumatica. It has been an honor for our team to participate in the process of creating stand-alone applications. And integrate them into these platforms according to the needs of Scanco`s clients.
When we joined forces with Scanco 4 years ago, we did some QA (quality assurance) for existing Scanco products and took part in developing a new integration solution. Partial software development became one of our main tasks soon after that.
Sage 100/Sage 100cloud
Everything started with Sage 100. We worked on Warehouse 100 which is an application for automating warehouse management. It was created specifically as an automation application integrated into Sage 100. It includes several integration modules: inventory module, purchase module, sales module. At first, it was a desktop program with an application for portable devices that worked via RDP.
When devices that work on Android and iOS became widespread, we rewrote the app, so that it could work on them as well. One of its numerous advantages is barcode and QR code scanning. This function speeds the process even more and makes it even more effective.
When Scanco acquired JobOps, we merged Scanco`s Warehouse 100 with a similar warehouse management application previously developed by JobOps JDB. This move resulted into a more powerful warehouse and manufacturing management app.
This ERP software is more advanced and more complicated than Sage 100. As a result, it has more features. Warehouse 500, the application for it, remained in its first iteration for a long time because it was so well-made. Then Scanco made an updated and improved version. Their teams also developed Android and iOS apps for it. Meanwhile, we did some QA for them.
We have created a new warehouse management product which is fully integrated into Acumatica. We did it based on NetSuite that we had previously worked on, There are several modules in it as well: sales module, inventory module, purchase module, manufacturing module. This is a new application with a brand new interface, a slightly different logic that is perfectly suitable for Acumatica.
We were fully responsible for developing this application. On top of that, we have been doing QA and providing support to the customers. When a customer has some additional needs, we can not only customize the app, but also Acumatica itself. Finally, thanks to the cloud, we have the direct access to the systems of our customers all around the world if they need us to fix something.
Sage or Acumatica?
This is a valid question, but one that does not have a generic answer. They are two different ERP software systems with the same main function. They manage, automate and improve various business processes. However, their structure and integration are different, which is why they require different solutions.
To understand their differences and specialties better, you can request a demo version of both Sage and Acumatica. Then you will see what they are like in action. This will help you make your decision. On our behalf, we can guarantee that our teams are capable of implementing and customizing both softwares equally well. And you will get the best out of your chosen ERP software.
AppStore & PlayMarket
Apart from developing and testing applications, we have been responsible for delivering them to AppStore & PlayMarket where customers could download them. Apple and Google are extremely demanding when it comes to accepting new apps to their stores. This is why this process is more complicated than one would expect it to be. On top of that, when it comes to manufacturing or warehouse automation, one has to keep scanning integration in mind. However, we are capable of dealing with this task well.
