Scan verifications for special orders
I am looking for a good solution to verify special order items are correct. We do a lot of special orders where we buy items only after a customer places an order. After receiving the PO, we put them into a single Special Order bin. We can link the PO to the sales order so it automatically allocates. The problem is when the shipment is created, the quantities are automatically allocated and therefore don’t require scanning. Many of our items look similar so it is easy for someone to grab the wrong item. Anyone have a good solution?
Hi Ryan, good problem to have, if you are thinking of scanning via barcodes then it's a tedious process regardless of whether you use pick,pack ship or other automated features.
If cost isn't an issue then you could RFID all your products, passive RFID tags will do too, you can scan 100's within few seconds, you can even search for hiding components in your warehouse 🙂
Just throwing this idea.
