How a Smart Asset Tracking Solution Replaces Specialized Scanning Equipment
Overview: Viscosity's Solutions Architect, Emanuel Cifuentes, presented a feature-rich mobile application at the Oracle APEX Open Mic Night at ODTUG's Kscope22 that his team has developed. The Oracle APEX mobile application replaces an outdated EBS built in Java to digitize and streamline its inventory management system. By wrapping in React Native, the application allows the client to access phone features such as the camera, Bluetooth, and geolocation to help scan barcodes and connect to printers.
The new application created in APEX is an alternative to an old EBS built-in Java, but with advanced capacities. Fundamentally, the developers set a goal to keep track of customer inventory, i.e., warehouse, home, or business inventory, to manage stock in real-time. To automate asset tracking in the oil & gas industry, access to mobile cameras and tubular inventory goods (piping, joints, etc.) is needed due to barcode recognition and connection to printers via Bluetooth.
This cloud-based solution with intelligent features makes digital inventory management work for businesses. It ensures data privacy and security, along with providing effective client support. This application allows you to control your inventory between your stores using a phone. It needs a little configuration and setup, but it is a no-brainer process for the end user. In conclusion, the Oracle APEX asset tracking application replaces specialized scanning equipment and improves customer experience.
