STAR Stock Count App is one of the applications released on the new STAR Suite technological platform, supported by the STAR Mobility Concept. All STAR Apps are modern, user-friendly, and easy to learn.
The app is designed to support the crew while performing stock counts in various locations onboard with no Wi-Fi or Internet connection. Users can download material lists with all details for each item from the Star IPS database to the mobile device. Selected material information can be updated in the app during the stock count. When connected to Wi-Fi, the application on the mobile device is synchronized with the Star IPS database automatically.
As the STAR Stock Count App supports QR codes for identifying items, the application can print QR tags even when the device is offline. The app is also connected to the camera on the mobile device and photos taken of the materials are automatically uploaded to the Star IPS database. In this way, the quality of the materials in the Star IPS database is continuously improved.
Online and offline
While the mobile device is connected to the Wi-Fi onboard, the user can explore inventory data in the Star IPS database with filtering and sorting options available. Selected materials may be downloaded to the mobile device. The downloaded materials are tagged to prevent that different users are updating the same material list. While offline, the user may update the stock, verify stock, move items between bins, print QR tags, and add pictures. The stored information will be synchronized with the Star IPS database once the user is connected to Wi-Fi.
