The Streamware Handheld


How did the vending industry ever get along without handhelds?  Paper tickets, manual data entry, zero accountability—those are relics of the past. Handhelds have brought vending into the digital age, and the Streamware handheld is the most advanced and reliable in vending. It's also the easiest to learn and use.

Back-Office Operations

  • The Handheld sync can automatically print end-of-day reports and truck loads for the following day
  • End-of-day reports identify over- and under-serviced machines, unscheduled and missed stops, along with time at each machine.  Route supervisors are informed and able to talk to drivers immediately.
  • Money room is immediately informed about incoming money bags and can begin counting right away. Counted money is automatically tied to the vend visit transaction.

Warehouse Operations

The Handheld allows your warehouse manager to:
  • Carry out warehouse or truck inventories
  • Transfer product to trucks or other warehouses
  • Direct receiving or PO's

Route supervisor can also run inventory accountability reports, tracking product movement to and from each warehouse or truck.  In addition, route drivers may transfer or receive product from or to their trucks, taking ownership of the product.

The Handheld software can read and learn barcodes, which may come from each manufacturer/supplier or can be easily developed in-house using Microsoft Word and office labels.
