I would like to know if any of you who uses UDI format barcode could share how you configured or customized Acumatica to read the UDI barcode to reduce data entry while capturing transactions (shipping, transfers, even product label generation etc.).  The UDI device identifier that we have to use is not at all like our inventory ID.  I am thinking that we will need a field added to the heading screen of stock items and a look-up table behind the scene to do the conversion...

UDI is just a format for creating globally unique identifiers: https://www.gs1.org/industries/healthcare/udi
