1placeWMS - Functionality Summary
1placeWMS is a 1place.cloud add-on helps you:
–Scan items into stock for incoming Purchase Orders.
–Scan items out of stock for Sales Orders.
–Scan items out the door for Order Dispatching & Deliveries.
–Scan items into stock for Customer Returns.
–Scan items for Physical Inventory (Cycle) Counts.
How it Works
Scan items into stock for incoming Purchase Orders:
–Scan items as they come off the truck. There is no need to hand count and reconcile PO’s with a pencil. 1placeWMS will auto compare the items scanned with the related PO. If any items have the incorrect quantity (or are missing) the user will be able to see (and email) a list of parts that didn’t match, when the scanning is complete.
–As item are scanned from the truck (or sea container) they can be scanned (1) to the dock, which makes items instantly available for sale in 1place or from 1place ecom / shopping carts, (and then scanned to another bin later on. Or, (2) scanned directly to the ‘normal’ bin location, or (3) scanned to any other location, if they don’t fit in the normal location. This helps you more fully optimize your warehouse space.
Scan items out of stock for Sales Orders (when picking items off the shelf):
–1placeWMS will tell the user which parts to pick, which bin they are in, and which order to pick them in.
–If the user scans the wrong item the app will alert the user (so the wrong parts don’t get delivered to the customer).
Scan items out the door (for Order Dispatching & GPS Routing for Deliveries):
–Scan each Sales Order that you want to deliver. You can scan them in the order that you’d like to deliver them in or just scan them in any random order and then select the option to have Google Maps determine the best delivery order.
–Once the ‘delivery order’ of the deliveries has been determined 1placeWMS will prompt the Delivery Truck loading person to scan each item (on each order) in reverse order (so the items can be taken off the truck in the order that they will be delivered). When all items are scanned it will alert the scanning person if any parts on the Orders have not been scanned into the truck.
–When the driver is ready to go he can log into 1placeWMS (on his smart phone) and click the button to display the turn by turn GPS route to make all the deliveries.
Scan Item Returns:
–User is given various options to find the part and create (or request authorization to create) a Return Authorization.
–A list of Sales Orders (and customer names will appear). The user will then select the Order or part to return.
–The user will be given a few questions such as should it go back into stock? Or, is it damaged? Should a Credit be created for the Customer?
Scan Items for Physical Inventory (Cycle) Counts: (Save Countless Hours of Time)
–Scan all items in a bin or a row and 1placeWMS will connect to 1place to compare, auto reconcile, and update.
–No need to figure out which parts are which and how many you have.
–No need to hand look up and reconcile each individual part in 1place.
