Warehouse Shipping Functionality
As part of any good ERP solution, Blue Link provides specific functionality for you to pick, pack and ship orders quickly. With Blue Link’s warehouse shipping functionality, once an order has been picked and packed, you can easily select the order to ship, enter shipment details, print the documents required to accompany the order, and mark the order as shipped.
Based on rules defined in the system, the act of “shipping” the order may also result in an invoice being printed (that could accompany the shipment), and even posted. Once the order has been shipped, Blue Link maintains a history of the shipment, the number of boxes shipped, and the items assigned to each box.
Integration with common carriers allows you to easily generate shipping labels and paperwork without the need to enter information into multiple solutions. The common couriers tracking screen is accessible from within Blue Link.
Blue Link ERP integrates with rate shopping applications to help your business get the best shipping rates. Once employees have finished packing orders into boxes specifying size and weight, the system will automatically populate a list of available carrier companies and their respective services and rates. Employees then choose an option and the information is used to generate shipping labels and any associated paperwork – and then product is ready to ship!
With Blue Link ERP, you can easily manage the receipt of inventory to your warehouse or to multiple warehouse locations. Specific functionality includes:
- Easily receive inventory using barcode scanning technology
- Ability to receive products and associated lot and serial numbers
- Calculate total costs of goods “COG” – including landed costs
- Valuation of inventory is automatically updated as product is received
- Inventory updated in real time upon receipt
Wireless Barcode Scanning
Blue Link’s wireless barcode scanning functionality makes shipping and receiving a hassle-free process. Easily scan items as you receive them into your warehouse to update inventory quantities or scan items as part of the picking process using electronic pick slips. Verification scanning is also available for use at packing stations.
