Order picking and despatch scanning
With SI, using scanner technology to validate orders picked, confirm that all products, quantities, weights and dates are completed according to your customers’ specifications. And once orders have been picked, auto-generate and validate paperwork (including despatch notes, invoices and ASNs).
“After changing our manual despatch processes to a completely integrated barcoded system with SI, we can be sure that pallets are loaded with the correct products, before being released.”Finnebrogue Artisan
For some companies, production, picking and despatch errors can affect up to 10% of orders, leading to customer complaints, credits and even fines.
Inaccurate picking is a major issue for food processors. And with order volumes changing throughout the day, validating what needs to be picked against the most up-to-date order, palletised and despatched is critical.
SI’s approach to validation uses real-time data capture against live daily sales orders held within our Despatch System, and linked to Stock Management.
Our approach provides Operational & Management teams full visibility across all orders due to be picked and despatched, making the best use of available stock.
SI’s Despatch Tracker provides a real-time view of progress for despatching and picking against sales orders, within the food factory’s picking and despatch area.
Despatch Tracker and Loads Out is a desktop application, that’s used by food manufacturers to review all orders that need to be picked and that can then be grouped or tied together for a load.
