One of our clients need a complete barcoding solution integrated with SAP. They need to
1. Read bar codes using hand held scanners to SAP.
2. Create bar codes from SAP and print them.
I found a couple of third party software.(zebra - bar one 5.1 for my SAP and one from TEC-IT). Could anybody suggest any other available solutions?
Thank you in advance
This company has an SAP specific solution. Look here:

One of my former companies used Psion Teklogix for a project. Software and hardware were great, the consulting services.....let's just say we had to "manage" the project and keep them on task. Solution was delivered about a month later than planned date, but we were OK with that.
Overall, it was a successful implementation, but that was only because we were very active in the project, and did all the SAP work ourselves. They didn't have anyone experienced enough with automotive Shipping processes to really support us.
On another note, (since this is a 3rd Party forum) I currently work for a consulting company which offers bar-code solutions specific to the automotive industry. If you're interested in further info, send me a PM.
Just remember... SAP might need special hardware - such as DIMM or SIMM chips for existing printers - or software - such as BarOne - in order to product bar codes correctly. So whatever your solution, make sure you research the needs exhaustively.
Finding out a printer can't print bar code during GoLive is NOT a fun thing.

From your Previous posting, you were saying that you guys did all the SAP work yourselves after implemented the 3rd party solution. May I know what kind of work still need to be done? Are u referring to unit testing, integration testing?
The process we implemented was the entire WM process. We expected Psion to handle this (especially the delivery picking process) but we ended up writing our own ABAP in SAP to sort all the documents for delivery picking. We also had to write a couple of transactions in SAP to handle MIGO process.
Psion did do all the interface set-up for SAP Console and the RF equipment.
Of course we did all the testing, but we expected this.
I see. Thanks for your reply.
How long does it take for you and the team to do those testings including writing ABAP, SAPscript, unit and integration testing to complete the project? Was it a big project? As trying to estimate the size of the project to the timeline.
The project lasted 5 months. We had a really good ABAP programmer, and he spent about 80 hours writing all necessary programmings.
We spent about 3-4 days learning how the SAP Console worked.
I'd recommend hiring consultants to handle the technical side of the project (unless you have good basis people)
In this particular project requiring the est. 80 hrs. of ABAP programming, can you explain at a high level what programming was required and what did the Psion "solution" actually provide? I am curious as to how much development effort the solution actually saved, if any.
Thanks in advance.
