After DMS
The editing techniques that power DMS are simple yet powerful:
  • Cut, Copy, and Paste with mouse or "shortcut" keys
  • Copy and Paste with "function" keys - a very fast and efficient method
  • Swap cells with a "function" key - data may be correct, but in the wrong position
  • Make global changes with a "function" key - change entire column with one keystroke
  • Find and replace with a "function" key - correct misspellings or standardize terminology
  • Merge cells with a "shortcut" key - useful in creating "new item" templates
  • Move data with a "function" key - when legacy databases have manufacturer and part numbers hidden within the description (no field existed previously), DMS finds and moves data to the proper field automatically
There are many other custom options available which are exclusive to the DMS processor.

After leaving the "breakout" view, DMS saves your work and re-assembles the details. All of a sudden, this information takes on a different look. Items that were originally on the file are now in a different location on the sort. Other items that were further down the original listing now appear in sequence. Your company can now see things properly.

Once your catalogue database integrity has been restored, DMS will automatically create the required files to restore the data to your host operating system. DMS also creates files in spreadsheet or database formats to be used in other applications. This is extremely useful for analyzing stock requirements and leveraging your supplier base. Most suppliers are willing to assist in verifying part numbers and cost of product, but find it frustrating when data is sporadic.

DMS ends this frustration with interfaces that apply to everyone.
