Hi Guys,

Could you tell me if there is way to set the following up:

Assigning a barcode to each warehouse location you have for you SKU’s so that when a purchase order is raised, you can get a print out with the SKU, title, pic of item, location and a barcode.

When the order arrives and you are then checking items in you scan the purchase order sheet barcode for the relevant item and then scan the tub you are putting the item in when you put the item in it to ensure it is going in the correct position? If the barcodes didnt match it would be signified by a negative sounding beep or something along those lines?

Our biggest errors occur when putting deliveries as this is all human based and mistakes can happen e.g an item being put in box 3 in row 20, instead of box 3 in row 21

Morning Steve,

I see where you’re going with this. How cool!

What you’re suggesting here wreaks “PeopleVox”. They have a handheld scanner system that allows you to book new deliveries in, print barcode labels for new products and then for the pick-pack process use a scanning system to ensure that only the right items are packed for that order. I’m assuming that the beeping is part of the handheld scanner device.

PeopleVox is wayyyy better than anything I helped put into eSellerPro and yes I admit it, warehouse management does “do it” for me because it’s a crucial part of larger business which is processing many orders each day.

There are other options too. There are a couple of barcode scanner extensions for Magento, but as Magento doesn’t come with warehouse management out of the box this doesn’t solve the location issues. Plus we were talking to Jim from moogento on this topic to find a half-way-house solution and that’s something we’re looking at together.

What I’m going to do is ping Oliver from PeopleVox in a few minutes with this thread as it’s about time we see what their system can do.
