ProVision Pick, Pack and Ship (PPS) integrates customer-specific processes with your picking operations, delivering streamlined procedures and monitoring performance. It gives you the automation needed to develop and maintain a responsive and robust order picking system.
What is Pick, Pack and Ship?
Pick, Pack and Ship is a scaled down warehouse software that only handles the picking, packing and shipping portion of warehouse functions. It is ideal for any warehouse not yet using a WMS but looking to upgrade some current manual processes. Inventory, Employee, Customer and Workflow definitions are setup and stored in the software. The PPS solution accepts sales orders directly from an ERP in order to initiate the entire process.
The picking process can be defined on a one to one or one to many basis between orders and pickers. The items to pick can be viewed on a handheld terminal or on a printed sheet. Goods can be picked in the order set by the ERP or by weight to keep the heaviest products on the bottom. Barcode scanning ensures the right products are picked for each order. Additional labeling can be done while picking as needed.
The packing process is an additional step that can be added to the workflow that will provide additional accuracy validation. The use of totes and packing stations can help with work order flow. Carton content information can be recorded as boxes are packed. Labels can be generated automatically according to specific customer requirements with our integrated label generation software.
Important shipment details can be recorded such as container ID’s, weights, carrier tracking reference, and freight cost. A packing slip is generated to go with each shipment. The system can integrate with a variety of Transportation Management Systems (TMS) to determine the best shipping method. Our direct connection will provide all the carton and shipping information for a seamless transition
