GroovePacker is an excellent solution for adding key warehouse management features like physical inventory tracking and best-of-class pick-pack verification to ShipWorks.

 

ShipWorks is a robust and capable order management solution and GroovePacker complements it perfectly, giving your warehouse staff the tools they need to pack every order without error and keep inventory up to date. Depending on your requirements you can use GroovePacker solely for barcode scan & verify or if you’re interested in employing remote staff, order modifications and order lookup can be done in GroovePacker. Because of its location in your workflow, it lends itself well to being the final record of what was actually shipped in each order.

Eliminating picking, packing, and labeling errors benefits your customer and your business in a multitude of ways all of which ultimately add to your bottom line. Resolving shipping errors often requires multiple communications with the customer, costly re-shipment, and attention from multiple employees. Every error presents an opportunity for additional errors during the resolution process.

UPC Barcode scan and pack verification allow you to bypass the shipping error woes altogether. By scanning the UPC barcode on each item as it’s packed your packers can move quickly and confidently, assured that the items they’re packing are correct. Multiple instances of an item will never cause issues with Scan and Pack verification checking each off as you go. GroovePacker seamlessly integrates barcode scanning verification with ShipWorks, giving your shipping system the ability to catch packing errors before they’re shipped and before any cost has been introduced.

In addition to user-friendly barcode scan and pack verification GroovePacker augments ShipWorks inventory, giving your warehouse real-time, physical inventory tracking. Item counts are updated as orders are packed, giving you an unprecedented level of inventory visibility with no extra work. Together ShipWorks and GroovePacker give your business a cost-effective warehouse management solution and all the competitive advantages that go along with it. Because the cost of GroovePacker is less than the cost of the shipping errors it prevents, it’s as though you’re getting paid to use it every month. As your order volume grows, so do the benefits of avoiding shipping errors. There’s no doubt about it, when it comes to receiving exactly what they order, your customers expect perfection every time. With GroovePacker you can deliver.

WHAT’S NEEDED TO SET UP GROOVEPACKER WITH SHIPWORKS?

Connecting GroovePacker to ShipWorks to a simple, two-step process. First GroovePacker will proved a URL where it will listen for ShipWorks. Next, an action is added to ShipWorks to specify when orders should be sent to GroovePacker. Several methods are possible:

  • Import All orders to GroovePacker as they are downloaded into ShipWorks
  • Import orders to GroovePacker when you change their local status in ShipWorks
  • Import selected orders to GroovePacker with the click of a custom button

In all cases, you have control over which local order statuses should be imported.

GroovePacker only requires 3 product fields: Name, SKU, and Barcode (registered UPC or internal barcode), in order to provide barcode scanning verification for each product you ship. Because ShipWorks does not store barcode data, a CSV file can be used to quickly load all of your product data. From then on your products will be properly recognized during order imports.

SCAN AND PACK WORKFLOW WITH GROOVEPACKER

There’s no reason to change how you currently print your shipping labels. GroovePacker can work with ShipWorks to accommodate a variety of workflows.

Your workflow will depend on when in the process shipping labels are printed. ShipWorks allows you to print your order number on each packing slip as a barcode. GroovePacker can then read a scan of the order number to display the order and items to be packed. This allows your packers to split orders up, print in batches and scan them in any order they like. In this batch workflow, all printing is best done from within ShipWorks. It’s also possible to incorporate a digital scale and ship by exact weight. In this scenario, you’ll print shipping labels individually after packing and weighing the packed shipments for exact package weights. If you prefer you can also print packing slips and pick lists directly from GroovePacker.

Once your shipping labels, packing lists, and pick list are printed your packer or dedicated picker can begin picking all the items required to pack that batch of orders. Often a cart is used to gather all items. By sorting your pick list by location you can eliminate backtracking during the picking process.

After the items have been picked and your packers are ready to begin packing orders, they’ll just scan the order number from any packing slip and GroovePacker will suggest the first item to be scanned and packed. When the correct product is scanned the packer will get confirmation and will be prompted for the next item. The process continues until all items have been scanned and packed.

Once scanning and packing are complete the status of the order is updated and inventory counts are adjusted. A record of each item scanned and the packer who scanned it is saved in GroovePacker, ready to be called up with the scan of an order number. Because GroovePacker scans items into and out of your warehouse you have true item-level visibility of your physical inventory. Because GroovePacker is cloud-based, substitutions, cancellations or other exceptions can be made from any location allowing customer service assistance by VAs and remote employees.

Each inventory change is made automatically as items are shipped and received, giving you an inventory count you can depend on. You can set up and scan error-free orders in a few hours. Click Here to choose a plan that fits your needs.
