Quick Receipt & Pallet Build
The Quick Receipt function, which is available on the ProSKU App is a simpler receipt and putaway process for users who manually select locations for received goods (i.e. not auto-putaway). The Pallet Build function is also available on the ProSKU App and allows pallets to be assembled during the receipt process, prior to putaway. It is designed for a situation where you receive loose product which needs to be palletised, for example when unloading a shipping container.
Quick Receipt Function
This function, which is available on the ProSKU App is a simpler receipt and putaway process for users who manually select locations for received goods (i.e. not auto-putaway).
It is ideally designed for situations where multiple operatives may unload a vehicle at the same time, potentially creating individual receipts, and allows product to be received and put away in a short process with minimum device interaction.
It can be used In conjunction with the ‘Advice Note’ functionality if needed. This allows the receipts you have created to be compared against expected quantities
Advice Notes are similar to Pre-receipts and can be received in the same way, but there is a key difference. A pre-receipt is converted to a receipt when goods arrive, and represents the expected contents of that receipt. This is a one-to-one relationship, so the discrepancy report will compare one directly against the other.
However, an Advice Note can relate to any number of receipts, and the user can decide which receipts these are in order to generate the discrepancy report.
Pallet Build Function
This function is also available on the ProSKU App and allows pallets to be assembled during the receipt process, prior to putaway. It is designed for a situation where you receive loose product which needs to be palletised, for example when unloading a shipping container.
Once you begin a receipt, a ‘new build’ pallet can be created. This needs a unique reference so you can either enter one, or leave the system to assign a sequential pallet number automatically.
Product can then be scanned as you add it to the pallet, with the count increasing each time a scan (of case, etc.) is made. When all cases have been scanned, or when the desired pallet/case quantity is reached, the pallet is complete.
There is also a ‘multiplier’ feature which can be used in certain situations. This is where the container you scan is not the secondary (i.e. picking) unit of measure, but its contents are. For example it could be a case containing several single items or sales units.
The feature allows you to enter a ‘multiplier’ number against the scanned quantity to calculate the true stored quantity on the pallet. For example: a pallet is created where 30 cases are scanned, each containing 10 items. Adding ‘10’ into the multiplier field multiplies the scanned quantity by 10, to create a total stored quantity of 300.
When creating pallets with this feature you don’t have to perform a putaway process each time you complete a pallet, although you can use this option if required.
The system allows you to complete one pallet then commence building a new pallet, and this process can be repeated as often as needed. Once all pallets are completed the receipt can be closed and the pallets ready for putaway will be listed under the schedules option.
