FlexSNC - Serials Codification

“A serial number is a unique identifier assigned incrementally or sequentially to an item, to uniquely identify it.

Serial numbers need not be strictly numerical. They may contain letters and other typographical symbols, or may consist entirely of a character string.”

Wikipedia

FlexSNC is serial number codification system that manages all types of serial numbers – manufacturing, documentation, maintenance and bug tracking, project management, and many others.
