Unit of Measure (UOM) is a set of descriptive packaging parameters that is filled out when creating new items in Infoplus. This allows users to specify what an item is, what it weighs, and how it is packaged within the warehouse. UOM values can be recorded during receiving, via item receipts. The UOM fields are included in bulk load and the values can be input via the Infoplus API. Work tickets and our mobile app both show UOMs.
Infoplus supports four levels of UOM: Each, Inner Pack, Case, and Pallet. All quantities are stored as eaches.
The following tables show estimated pallets/cases/inner pack columns: Items, Item Receipts, Locations, Inventory Detail, and Inventory Snapshot.
Possible unit descriptions include: Binder, Book, Booklet, Bottle, Box, Brochure, Cap, Carton, Card, Cards, Check, Cont. Sets, Cont. Singles, Continuous, Cover, Cutsheet, Diskette, Each, Envelope, Folder, Form, Hour, Insert, Ir, Jar, Kit, Label, Letterhead, Logo, Manual, Memo, Menu, Ncr, Pack, Pad, Pkg, Pod, Prospectus, Ribbon, Singles Loose, Singles Padded, Slide, Snapset, Tab, Tabs, Tape, Ticket, Toner, and Vial.
Once the UOM fields are populated with a quantity value (Quantity per Inner Pack, Quantity per Case, and Quantity per Pallet), you can set barcode fields on the Item in Infoplus so you have the ability to scan a barcode on the box(es) when received (if applicable) to tell Infoplus how many are in each. NOTE: The Pack Station app does not support UOM barcodes.
