You save time!

  • Simply put — you save time because you can easily make changes to your stock information immediately. The PDA functionality means that you don’t have to make notes on scraps of paper as you walk around the store, and then take them back to the computer to enter the changes needed.
  • The PDA is right there on your hip — ready to change a price, ready to queue a label, ready to create an order — and much, much more.
  • From the shop floor, the PDA functionality gives you the ability to fix Min/Max figures and fix supplier information on the fly.
  • You can stand and scan a bin, and verify the information straight away. When the product and the shelf are right in front of you it’s easy to see a problem — and with the PDA you can fix the problem immediately.
  • And the potential time savings that the PDA delivers for your Stocktake processes are enormous.
  • At a recent installation, the usual time allocated to stocktake a medium sized store (with a 7-user SYM-PAC system), was halved.Previously this store had used PDEs for stocktaking, but the use of 3 new PDA devices cut the stocktaking time — and the labour expense — in half.

What functionality does the PDA have?

  • SYM-PAC delivers portability with a wireless ‘batch’ process technology. The advantage of this is that you do not need to be within wireless range to use the device, you only require wireless connectivity when you need to synchronise data. The forms displayed can be custom configured, so talk to us about what you do or don’t want to be displayed.
  • The PDA is capable of storing your entire product file and supplier file.


  • Stock take your products by bin.
  • Review the product data while you stocktake.
  • When you have finished a bin simply send the data to the PC where it is immediately added to the stock-count area on each product and the bin location of each product is updated.
  • All you need to do next is print the stocktake variation report, review it, and complete the stocktake update for the bin.

Stock Adjustment:

  • Correct the stock on hand of a single product while you are on the shop floor (i.e. found an empty packet).
