Automatic Data Collection (ADC) in Sage Enterprise Management

By | August 3, 2015

What is ADC?

ADC i.e. Automated Data Collection is used for instant and automatic capturing of various data and information from sources such as barcodes, license Plates and handwritten documents.

Why do we need ADC?

Automatically collected data can improve your business in important ways. In most cases, the data is collected manually and entered into the system by a human operator. The common problems with manually collected data are non-timeliness, inaccuracy, and bias. Considering that this data forms the basis for all important decisions, based on the reports – any problems with the initial data collection can start a ripple effect that results in a negative impact on your business.
