Inventory Programs for the Department of Veterans Affairs

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has a set of special barcode inventory programs that use Intermec and Honeywell barcode equipment to collect data for assets, inventory and maintenance purposes. These programs have been incorporated into the VistA System but go by acronyms such as GIP, IFCAP and AEMS/MERS and MAXIMO. The programs have a long history of use in the VA and have been extremely successful in keeping the VA's inventory up to date.

Additional Information

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is using Intermec barcode readers such as 9440, Janus 2020, 2410, and the CK30. These barcode readers are no longer being manufactured. The newest version are the CK3X and CN51 mobile computer kits. Because the operating systems for these new readers are completely different than the older barcode readers, the reader programs come pre-installed in the reader kits along with KWedge software so that the data can be transferred easily into VistA or Maximo. That's why it is vital that the correct kit part number is ordered so that you get the software and hardware bundled together. Most qualified SEWP vendors can provide these kits off their contract, but you must order the correct part # to be sure of getting the complete system. Please ask us for the complete part # and description before ordering.

MSS Software has a long history with the VA regarding these programs and is the company who helped make previous Intermec equipment, such as the Janus 2020 and 2410 work with VistA. MSS Software created the special proprietary version of these programs which is pre-installed on each VistA kit that is shipped. This software program contains a menu of the four inventory/maintenance functions (PRCPH, PRCUS, ENPM, ENNX, and MAXIMO). Therefore, each kit allows the VA a plug and play reader that can be used immediately in their VistA system. These reader kits and accessories are only available in the following kit configurations through qualified SEWP contract holders. For a complete list, please contact us.

If you are already using the 9730 wedge kit with previous readers (J2020 or 2410), you may continue using the same wedge reader and cables with some of these new kits. However, on some of the newer models, you will need to install KWedge software (which is backwards compatible with most of the older barcode readers as well) and Windows Mobile Device Center WMDC. Please note that these new kits are compatible with Win7 operating systems as well as Windows 10.

My VA no longer allows KWedge.  What are my options?
Some VA Hospitals have removed Microsoft’s Windows Mobile Device Center from computers which disables KWedge.  The recommended replacement of KWedge is EzWedge if you are using CK3 or CN51 devices.  Another option is replace the CK3 or CN51 scanner with our newest products which use KWedge 7.0 if you prefer USB communication.

Windows Mobile Device Center will not Launch.  How can this be fixed?

This is a common issue when a new computer with Windows 10 is being set up or a computer with Windows 7 is being upgraded to Windows 10.  The Windows 10 operating system is missing some components needed for WMDC to launch.  This issue can be resolved by following the instructions shown in this YouTube video and utilizing these codes.
