Data Collection Suite

DC-Suite Logo

DC Suite™

DC Suite™ barcode data collection software makes it easier than ever before to collect data whenever and wherever you need it. It’s easy-to-use, extremely flexible, and comes free with most AML mobile computers. Many common data collection tasks can be accomplished by using one of seven pre-written DC Suite applications. However, modifying existing applications or writing completely new ones from scratch is easy with DC Suite’s program generator, DC Console.

Item Quantity App screen view. Typical tasks completed with DC Suite include taking cycle counts, tracing lot codes, tracking assets, or checking tools in or out. Scan barcodes and key in relevant data into a DC Suite application, then upload the data into spreadsheets, accounting software, or ERP systems for immediate access.

The combination of DC Suite with an AML Mobile Computer is an unbeatable value. Competitive software packages can cost thousands of dollars or be burdened with monthly subscriptions that never end. DC Suite costs nothing and comes preloaded on American-Made mobile computers from AML. Check-In/Out App screen view.

DC Suite software includes seven pre-written applications to accommodate the most common barcode data collection tasks, making it ready to go to work right out of the box. It is preloaded on the LDX10, TDX20, M7225b, and the Striker mobile computer. Optionally, it can be installed on the Scepter enterprise mobile computer as well.

Collected data can be easily uploaded to any Windows® PC using a USB cable, or data can be transferred over a Wi-Fi network on Wi-Fi enabled devices such as the Striker or TDX20.

DC Suite: Asset Tracker DC Suite: Asset Tracker

Asset Tracker

Compare

Compare 2 scans and confirm that they are the same OR are in fact, NOT the same.

Item Count

Simple one-field scanning where the items are unique. Use DC Console to add a “look up” table to retrieve additional information such as a description, a location, or a cost.

Item & Lot Number, Quantity

Ideal for tracking the quantity of an item as part of a specific batch. Scan the Item Number, collect Lot Number and Quantity information.

Item Number, Quantity

Traditional application used for counting inventory. Scan the Item Number and key in the Quantity. Use DC Console to alter to fit the task, such as changing “Item” to “Part” or “SKU”

Item & Serial Number

Track items with unique serial numbers. Scan in Item Number and the unique serial number.

DC Console

DC Console logo DC Console is the easy-to-use, application design software developed specifically to work in conjunction with AML’s DC Suite. Users can modify the existing DC Suite applications or create their own from scratch. No programming knowledge is required. Within a matter of minutes, even the novice user can be modifying or writing their own DC Suite applications.

DC Console can also act as the communications tool when sending and receiving files to and from the AML mobile computer. But for administrators who do not want to expose the editing and program generation capabilities of DC Console to their users, the DC Sync utility can be installed instead to perform the communications handling.

DC Console runs on Windows-based PCs but can communicate with both Windows and Android mobile devices.

DC Console on a computer
DC Console Beta Version supports both Android and Windows CE devices from AML, and includes a preview of the latest features and bug fixes. A current DC Console user may encounter known or unknown bugs that have not fully been vetted. This version has had some testing with Windows CE but may not have gone through a full regression test. This is also not just an update for DC Console, but also updates DC Suite so it will offer to update DC Suite on any AML device when connected over USB.
(Supports Both Windows® and Android™)

DC Sync

DC Sync Logo DC Sync is a communications utility that facilitates the transfer of data over the USB port for the LDX10 and the TDX20, or the Wi-Fi network for the TDX20, Striker, and Scepter.

Use DC Sync on computers where administrators do not want to give the full editing capability of DC Console available to all users.
