Eliminating errors before they ship holds many benefits for your business and your customer. Resolution of a single shipping error often requires multiple communications with the customer, costly re-shipment/returen shipment, and every error can lead to other exceptions during the resolution process.

By scanning a 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 Pack verification checking each off as you go. 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 and in doing so you can expect to save hundreds of dollars per month, per packer. It's a big win for you and your customers.

Mistakes related to training will never make it out the door! Per product instructions can be automatically displayed to the packer so they'll never forget to check for parts, use proper packaging etc. You'll also be able to keep track of their progress, comparing their packing speed to other packers on your team.

Scan and Pack Workflow with GroovePacker
There's no reason to change how you currently print your shipping labels. GroovePacker can work with Teapplix to accommodate a variety of workflows.
Your workflow will vary a little depending on when you print your shipping labels, before or after packing, but in all cases you start in Teapplix and decide which orders will be shipping for the day. Orders can be combined, edited or held at this point. When you have a list of the daily orders you'll print your packing slips and a pick list. The shipping labels may be created at the same time in a batch or you can print them individually after packing and weighing the packed shipments. The second option allows you to incorporate a digital scale and calculate postage by exact weight if needed.
At this point you'll click a button in GroovePacker to import your finished list of daily orders from Teapplix and your packer or dedicated picker can begin picking all the items required to pack their orders. Often a cart is used to gather all items. By sorting your pick list by location you'll 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 (Teapplix makes it easy to add your order number barcode on each packing slip) and GroovePacker will suggest the first item to be scanned and packed. When the correct product is scanned the packer will get auditory and visual confirmation and be prompted for the next item. A buzzer and error message will be given for any wrong items. The process continues until all items have been scanned and packed correctly. When packing is complete the packer will be prompted to scan another packing slip and continue packing the next order, or, if shipping labels are printed after packing the package, it would be weighed and the shipping label generated in ShippingEasy. Once the label is adhered to the package the packer would resume packing the next shipment.
Once scanning and packing is complete a record of each item scanned and the packer who scanned it is saved in GroovePacker. Because GroovePacker is cloud based, like Teapplix, it's possible for substitutions, cancellations or other exceptions to be made from any location allowing customer service assistance by virtual assistant's and remote employees.
