If you see applications on this list that might be useful to your business, please call us for a no-cost, no-obligation estimate on retrofitting the solution to your version of software.

Bar code implementations

Take advantage of a cost-effective, customized solution that is easy-to-use and can grow right along with your business. Not only that, our customized solutions are often less expensive than “packaged” ones – plus they’re customized for the way you do business.

Radio frequency (RF) data collection interfaces

Combine RF technology with the power of bar codes for productive and cost-effective results. Wireless technology can literally save your company hundreds of hours of work annually. Ways to use it include:

  • Performing transactions with a wireless handheld bar code reader. Information is validated online and in real-time so you can be assured of transaction accuracy.
  • Printing bar code labels with a wireless portable printer using data from your database. This is helpful for when you need access to a printer right where you’re scanning.
  • Automatically generating pick tickets, shipping documents, invoices, labels and other printing procedures.
  • Replacing manual functions by automating batch updates to occur immediately after scanning.

Some sample applications where we have found RF technology helpful are:

Contact us for a no-cost, no-obligation estimate to customize an RF solution for your specific needs. Once you compare your business productivity with our cost-effective custom programming, you’ll find choosing custom programming an easy decision to make.


Online electronic interchange (EDI) interfaces

With QSS, EDI no longer needs to be a complicated, difficult and expensive solution. We provide a very easy-to-use, cost-effective and customized solution using GENTRAN, the software package from Sterling Commerce. More information can be found here.

We also provide services for STX, the software package from Harbinger, EDIPort, the software package from Userbase Systems and other PC-based EDI translator software.

Our EDI solutions provide fully integrated transaction support with your Epicor software system. This not only eliminates manual data entry and improves accuracy, but it can also save your company hundreds of labor hours annually.

Some examples of typical EDI solutions:

  • You receive purchase orders from your trading partners. Our software solutions can automatically create the sales orders for you and schedule them for production and shipment. Transactions received with errors will automatically be placed on hold or directed to the quotation module for manual review and correction.
  • You want to send Advance Shipment Notices or Invoices to your trading partners. As you process shipments, our solutions can automatically retrieve the information from your database (or from other sources, such as scanning or data entry) and transmit it.
  • You want to automatically send Purchase Orders and Change Orders. Our solutions can allow each buyer to manage their own documents, giving them needed visibility and controls to ensure receipt and confirmation of transactions.

Contact us for a no-cost, no-obligation estimate to customize an EDI solution for your specific needs.

Software Upgrades

Whenever you are ready to upgrade your software, QSS can help.

Before you install a new version, your custom modifications must be retrofitted into it. QSS can do this for you. In addition, we offer after-hours and weekend conversion and installation support services. Here’s a brief overview of what you can expect from the software upgrade process:

  • Start by calling us to discuss your needs and desired implementation schedule.
  • Load the new version of software onto your system without installing it. Just copy the software from the CD (or other delivery media) onto a new directory on your server.
  • You receive a no-cost, no-obligation estimate. We will dial-in to your system to evaluate your existing custom modifications, and compare the programs and processes against the new release software.
  • After we have a signed contract, we re-apply your custom modifications into the new software versions in a separate upgrade test environment.
  • We test your custom modifications to make sure they function correctly on the new release
  • Your staff accesses the test environment to learn new features and double check that your custom modifications work as expected.
  • We agree upon an implementation schedule to migrate your production account to the new release level
  • We install the new upgraded software that includes your custom modifications into your production account.
  • Database conversions are performed
  • Both of us jointly perform some validation checks
  • The new release is made available to your users for normal business activities.

If you are considering an upgrade, please contact us so that we can assist you with the process.
