How does barcode packing work?

Gone are the days of sorting through orders one by one, with StoreFeeder's product-led despatch, the system guides you through the process with ease.

Once the items for the pickwave are picked, just grab any product from your trolley, scan it, and watch as the system automatically identifies the corresponding order. If no additional items are needed, the system will immediately print the label and despatch the order.

No more manual matching, no more confusion, just scan, pack, and attach the label.

The benefits of barcode packing

So, what are the benefits of StoreFeeder's barcode packing function and how can it transform your order processing?

• Increased accuracy: By scanning barcodes during the packing process, you ensure that each item is correctly picked and assigned to the right order, drastically minimising the risk of errors. Say goodbye to errors and hello to satisfied customers.

• Reduced returns: Labels only print once all correct items are scanned, drastically cutting down the risk of incorrect shipments and the costly returns that follow.

• Improved efficiency: Speed up your packing process. Allowing packers to quickly verify items and removing manual matching processes, moves orders through the despatch stage without delays.

• No product knowledge needed: The system operates using EAN/barcodes, thus eliminating the need for the despatch team to have detailed product knowledge. Simply scan, pack, and attach the label.

Packing with precision

Caught your attention? What is the process for achieving these improvements?

• Enter the pickwave: At the packing station, select 'Scan Products' to access the 'Edit Pickwave' screen. Here all unscanned items will display, highlighted in red.

• Scan and pack: Take any item. scan its barcode, and StoreFeeder will automatically select the corresponding order. For single-item orders, the despatch note, and delivery label, are generated immediately.

• Handle multi-item orders: For orders with multiple items, after the initial scan, a new page will pop up showing you which other items you require to complete the allocated order. Then simply select and scan each required item as prompted by the system. Red and amber lines turn green to indicate fully scanned items. Once the order is complete, the label prints, and you’re ready for the next product.

Completing the process

Continue scanning and packing until all orders in the pickwave are processed. At every stage, the system updates each order’s status in real-time, ensuring accurate records and order status information on your sales channels.

The system allows users to monitor progress with colour-coded indicators. Red for unscanned items, amber for partially scanned, and green for fully scanned.

At the end of the pickwave, all lines should be green, and all items should have been scanned, leaving an empty trolley. If there are items left, and all lines are green, too many items have been picked, and likewise if some lines remain red or amber but the trolley is empty.
