Warehouse Management 

Datalinx are experts in bar coding solutions for Sage, in particular Sage MMS and Sage 200. Bar Coding for Sage 200 enables users to benefit from accurate and timely management information. The barcode based system uses hand-held scanners/computers to wirelessly link to Sage 200 back-end system in real-time.

Users typically encounter these key improvements;
