If your team has been using GroovePacker Lite the transition to GroovePacker will be quick and they will be able to immediately take advantage of dozens of features that will make scanning easier.
Users will begin by logging in using their unique username. This allows all of their actions to be logged for future reference. In most workflows packing slips will be printed and distributed to the pickers or packers. These will include an order number barcode.
As with GroovePacker Lite the scanning process is initiated by scanning this barcode. It’s also possible to cue orders using a scan of the shipping label. If you’re looking to start the scanning process by scanning products, rather than order numbers, this is also possible, our support team can provide info on this workflow.
When your team is ready to begin scanning orders, they can start the process by scanning the order number barcode from a packing slip and GroovePacker will display the order 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. In cases where orders have been imported to GroovePacker with tracking information an optional scan of the shipping label can be requested to verify that the correct label is being applied to the shipment.
Once scanning and packing is complete the status for the order it’s marked as scanned and inventory counts are adjusted in GroovePacker. A record of each item scanned and the packer who scanned it is saved in GroovePacker, ready to be called up with a quick search or by scanning the order number. Because GroovePacker scans items into and out of your warehouse you have true item-level visibility of your physical inventory. Substitutions, cancellations or other exceptions can be made within GroovePacker. Each inventory change is made automatically as items are shipped and received, giving you an inventory count you can depend on.
