Three little words that can change your business

Pick. Pack. Ship.

Wouldn’t it be great if the actual inventory process was as straightforward as those three simple words? Any fulfillment director or warehouse manager will tell you that manually picking, packing, and shipping is error-prone and anything but effortless. Many high-volume businesses that handle physical goods struggle to efficiently grab orders from shelves, box them, and load shipments onto trucks for delivery. Having the right technology might not help with actual back pain, but it will absolutely make it easier to do the heavy lifting.

Deskera’s Pick, Pack, and Ship feature provides an automated, flexible workflow so your warehouse can run faster and keep customers happy.

The first step in this process is the production of a pick ticket — however, traditional ERP systems’ pick tickets require the worker to manually update inventory data as products are individually pulled from inventory. In Deskera, wireless scanner integration syncs up with barcodes on your inventory so that stock levels, as well as row, rack, and bin information, update automatically as workers move through your facility.

For companies with smaller warehouses or lower volumes of inventory, sometimes the pick process is skipped. If your company skips the pick process and goes directly to packing, you can configure your workflow within Deskera to support this.

After the pick, items are packed into boxes and prepared for shipment. Deskera then automatically creates a packing slip based on the items picked for shipment.

Finally, to get it out of the warehouse – Deskera supports integration with all major shipping carriers. If you’re using LTL (less-than-load) transportation, Deskera offers APIs that connect to online brokers and automatically brings freight costs into the system based on dimensioning information. These costs can be tagged to invoices, which are automatically sent to your accounting department once the item has left the facility.

This function is focused on making fulfillment as simple as pick, pack, and ship. With barcoding, wireless data transfer and shipping integration, you’ll spend less time troubleshooting fulfillment issues, and more time focused on growing your business.
