Warehouse Management – Beyond the Barcode

A good warehouse management system helps eliminate duplicate data entry through the use of barcode scanning. Scan items in for receiving, scan them out for shipping, scan for physical counts, etc. And any basic system will have these activities integrated with your accounting system so warehouse transactions need not be rekeyed in Sage.

A great warehouse management system does all that and includes workflows that make your warehouse processes more efficient as a whole.

Here are a few of these processes provided by our partner, the warehouse experts at ScanForce, with short videos showing them in action:

Directed Picking

Are your orders being picked in the most efficient order, or do your warehouse team find themselves crisscrossing and doubling back as they follow the order of a packing slip? All those extra steps can add up over time.

ScanForce Directed Picking lets you increase productivity by providing the user with a “roadmap” for each order.

Sales Order Picking

When you need to “stage” items for shipping, but aren’t ready to ship and invoice them, Sales Order Picking is the answer.

Wave Picking

Many Sage 100 users can see tremendous gains in efficiency by using ScanForce Wave Picking, which allows you to group multiple Sales Orders so you can pick more than one at a time. This can reduce unnecessary trips back and forth across the warehouse, leading to faster order fulfillment.
