The Wholesaler FMD desktop application enables users to carry out scanning activities in the warehouse.


The Wholesaler FMD desktop application enables users at a wholesaler or third-party logistics (3PL) to verify the packs they handle and also carry out status change and reactivation when necessary.


Two modes of operation are available in the Wholesaler FMD desktop application: wholesaler and 3PL.


Note: The operation modes in the desktop application depend on how the Wholesaler FMD web application is configured.  


Users in the warehouse can perform the following actions:

  • Verify products
  • Dispense products
  • Decommission products that are:
    • Destroyed
    • Exported outside the European Union
    • Sampled
    • Provided as free samples
    • Stolen
  • Lock products
  • Reactivate products
  • View bulk actions
  • View transactions (3PL only)


For these activities, the following options are available:

  • You can scan and complete an action for a single pack.
  • You can scan and complete an action for multiple packs. You'll see the results for each item in the list.
  • You can scan packs and send them as a bulk action and see the results later.
  • You can enter details about the pack manually.
  • You can use an order to group the scans.
