BellHawk is an open architecture platform. It uses a SQL Server database in which it stores all the data that is captured. If the standard reports provided by BellHawk are not adequate then users, who have BellHawk installed on their own server, can generate their own custom reports using reporting software such as the SQL Server Reporting Software (SSRS) or products such as Microsoft Office or Crystal Reports.
BellHawk can exchange data with other systems using Excel exports and imports. BellHawk also comes with a number of interfaces that are available at no additional cost for those users need to automate the data exchange between BellHawk with other systems. Please see Exchanging Data with BellHawk (PDF download) for details.
Please note that BellHawk can run stand-alone and does not require the use of Barcode Label Printers in order to carry out its operations and materials tracking functions. These can be performed using barcode travelers and picking sheets printed out on office laser printers in combination with the use of pre-printed license-plate tracking barcodes.
