Please read How PanatrackerGP Operates before reading this article.
PanatrackerGP has three installation components.
- Creation of a SQL Server login account.
- Intranet website installation using Microsoft IIS
- Smart Client installation on handheld barcode devices.
Transactions are completed on the handheld barcode scanning devices, there is no desktop client required. Web services are used to send the transaction data from the handheld to the PanatrackerGP portal, an intranet site installed on your network. Once installed and configured, our system is labor efficient, easy to use and fast.
- Microsoft Dynamics GP
- Dynamics GP 2018
- Dynamics GP 2016
- Dynamics GP 2015
- Dynamics GP 2013
- Dynamics GP 2010
- Dynamics GP 10.0
- SQL Server
The PanatrackerGP transaction database is installed on your SQL server alongside your Dynamics GP company databases. Like all SQL databases, the size of this database will be relative to the number of transactions and amount of data contained in them
- Server with Application roles enabled
The server where PanatracekrGP is installed requires the following to be present:
- Microsoft's IIS
- .NET 4.5.2 or later (included with Windows Server 2012, may need to be installed manually for older operating systems)
- eConnect for Dynamics GP
eConnect is a .NET managed code assembly that allows for the PanatrackerGP web services to integrate into Microsoft Dynamics GP. eConnect is required to be present on the server where PanatrackerGP is installed.
Please note: PanatrackerGP needs to be able to communicate with your GP and SQL server, but it does not need to be installed on the same server as GP/SQL. PanatrackerGP does require eConnect, IIS and .NET 4.5.2 to be present on the server where it will be installed.
Mobile Computer w/Embedded Barcode Scanner
The third part of installation (after the two servers) is of the PanatrackerGP client on each of the handheld mobile computers. These "mini-computers" support a wide range of scanning and other features, PanatrackerGP is written to take full advantage of these features.
Panatrack operates on Android based mobile computers running Android 6.0 or newer with limited support for version 5. Our legacy application supports handhelds running Windows Mobile or Windows Embedded Handled 5, 6.1, or 6.5.
If you have items that are serial tracked or lot tracked, we strongly recommend that the scanners they get are 2D imagers. This will allow you to use our PanaCode. The PanaCode is a special concatenated barcode that includes both the item code and the serial/lot code in one scan.
For customers electing to source scanners from a third-party, please submit the handheld model and part numbers you intend to purchase prior to ordering them as Panatrack will want to confirm compatibility with PanatrackerGP.
