Warehouse Inventory Control Software with Barcode Scanning
Improve Your Warehouse Operations
Blue Link offers inventory control software with barcode scanning to automate the picking, packing, shipping and receiving process. The app is developed specifically for iOS devices such as the iPhone or iPod touch. Blue Link’s barcode scanning functionality is available as part of our warehouse inventory software and is not sold as a standalone product. Barcode inventory control allows your business to…
- Eliminate the need for paper in the warehouse
- Reduce picking errors
- Save time locating product by providing inventory locations (bin and shelf)
- Save money as iOS devices are less expensive than traditional scanners
- Easily train new employees as the software is designed with an easy-to-use, intuitive interface
Benefits of Inventory Control Software with Barcode Scanning
More efficient picking. Barcode scanning using wireless handheld devices allows you to identify picking errors at the source, by scanning items as you walk the warehouse floor, thus eliminating the time spent finding and correcting errors when back at a packing station.
Aids in achieving a paperless warehouse. With wireless barcode scanning, electronic pick slips can be opened and displayed on the device according to a predetermined status (such as ready to be picked).
Easy-to-use technology. Built for iOS devices such as iPhones and iPod Touches, this technology makes training easy, and is more economical than the larger, more traditional Motorola-type scanning devices.
Barcode Scanning – Picking an Order
Blue Link’s mobile picking and barcode scanning features allow warehouse staff to pick orders and scan barcodes as they walk the warehouse floor.
Barcode Scanning – Receiving Inventory
Blue Link’s mobile barcode scanning features simplify the receiving of inventory, allowing staff to scan product as they receive it into the warehouse, updating inventory quantities.
Blue Link’s mobile barcode inventory control solution makes it easy for you to quickly scan and look up inventory items while walking your warehouse. Retrieve information on product in stock and on backorder, product available at other locations, product ready to be picked and already picked as well as descriptions, categories, pricing and images. The app supports moving product from one location in a given warehouse to another, with the information updating in Blue Link’s back-end ERP system.
Pick & Pack
For more efficient picking and packing, Blue Link’s barcode scanning software itemizes all products to be picked and details how employees should go through the warehouse from top to bottom in the fastest order according to bin and shelf location. With serialized and lot tracked products, the app works in much the same way and if a user is unable to find product from a specific lot, the lot can be overridden in real-time to pick the same product from a different lot.
Using Blue Link’s barcode solution to receive product allows you to scan items at the receiving dock to immediately identify and record product on arrival. It records what items were received and then what bin and shelf number the product was allocated to. In order to deal with any discrepancies in sales orders and deliveries, quantities received in the warehouse get recorded as such in Blue Link’s back-end inventory control ERP system for quick comparison against any given sales order.
The Blue Link development team is continuously working to update our inventory control software with barcode scanning to include more robust features. Future releases will include:
- The ability to update inventory information from the app (UPC codes, categories etc.)
- A list making feature which will allow users to scan products to create lists for various purposes
- This will allow your business to then create quotes and orders, print price tags, create a gift registry and more based on lists
- Inventory count functionality
- The ability to integrate with portable printers to print labels etc.
