SYDNEY, Dec. 14, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Online One Pty Ltd, a provider of online applications, today unveiled the oneScan™ iPad application for NetSuite (NYSE : N ), a mobile solution that has brought the first cloud ERP suite to Apple's iPad. Built using NetSuite's SuiteCloud platform, the new oneScan™ iPad application enables wholesalers and distributors to access NetSuite and manage their key business processes on the iPad, no matter where they are.
Already in use by Australian businesses, oneScan for NetSuite helps reduce operating and IT costs while improving productivity by abandoning traditional warehouse floor solutions such as expensive scan gun technology and PDA options. With oneScan and NetSuite, warehousing and distribution companies can replace onerous and error prone paper-based warehouse picking processes, get real-time visibility into stock and inventory information while performing daily warehouse floor tasks, and eliminate double entry and common operator errors.
Brian Billingsley, Technical Director of Online One, said: "oneScan extends the benefits of NetSuite's cloud ERP to every aspect of business – front-office, back-office, through to the rigorous demands of the warehouse floor. With oneScan, we're pleased to bring the power of NetSuite to the iPad and enable firm's to rapidly transition warehouse staff from laborious data entry to productive customer service roles."
Working with NetSuite
oneScan runs entirely in NetSuite, and provides mobile warehouse floor personnel with an application designed specifically to streamline their day to day tasks, using either the iPad touchscreen and/or a Bluetooth connected barcode scanner. oneScan minimises operator errors by providing warehouse personnel with immediate validation at the point of entry right on the warehouse floor, ensuring that the data matches exactly the actual stock on hand, together with the location and the serial/batch numbers.
And because oneScan runs on NetSuite, data is always up to date, so when items are picked, the effect on stock levels is immediate – and visible throughout the business. It takes full of advantage of NetSuite's powerful customization capabilities, by being completely optimized for the iPad's easy to read access screens and functions, and is configurable for different user requirements across multiple warehouse types - making the job of warehouse personnel easier and more productive than ever before.
Online One was able to deliver the oneScan application with unprecedented speed to market by taking advantage of the power of the SuiteCloud platform. By leveraging the ease of customization, the flexibility to address the unique needs of specific verticals, together with the deep functionality of NetSuite's cloud based ERP, SuiteCloud and NetSuite were clearly the platform of choice for Online One to quickly take advantage of this new rapidly evolving market opportunity.
Chris Schafer, APAC Managing Director of NetSuite, said: "Technologies like the Apple iPad provide tantalizing market opportunities for ISVs – but only if they can address these opportunities quickly and cost effectively. The NetSuite SuiteCloud platform enables ISVs such as Online One to introduce high quality, powerful and industry specific applications with unprecedented speed and cost effectiveness. With oneScan, wholesale and distribution companies can cut operating costs and improve efficiency with its cutting edge, sophisticated but simple to use functionality."
