Making Warehouse Picks and Put-Aways More Efficient and Accurate


Email | Print

If you’ve had any experience with Dynamics 365 Business Central, you know that it is a great tool to help manage a warehouse. Now, through the magic of Insight Works’ Warehouse Insight with barcode scanning functionality, you can speed up the actions of picks and put-aways by scanning bins and items to increase accuracy, manage lot and serial numbers and make the whole process more efficient.

How does it work?

The Warehouse Insight picking screen displays the entire pick on the handheld device and immediately alerts the user if an improper bin or bar code is scanned. As each item is scanned, the description, lot number and serial number are displayed to verify that the items are properly labeled. Warehouse receipts and put-aways can be automatically created for an item or PO by scanning or entering the item number and/or purchase order number, with inventory picks and put-aways fully supporting non-directed pick locations – including those without “bins mandatory.”

The system essentially eliminates redundant data entry by capturing all item tracking information at the pick stage and updating the source document line.
