Infoplus Product Update: Scan Items to Find Orders in the Pack and Ship Apps

You can now scan SKUs, UPCs, or custom fields from your Item table in addition to order numbers and LPNs when packing and shipping orders in the Infoplus Mobile Floor apps.

Scan-SKU - What Does it Do?

The Infoplus Mobile Floor Apps now will let you scan a SKU or other customizable barcode fields to identify orders, pack orders, and ship orders. 

The scan-SKU feature needs to be enabled in order to work in the modern mobile app. Take a look at our Warehouse Table Knowledge Base article to see instructions on how to enable this feature. 

When you have scan-SKU enabled, the Pack and Ship stations will add an extra step that requires you to select which order you want to move forward with. In the below image, we scanned the SKU ‘BASIC1’, which met the criteria for two processed orders. 

You can continue to scan additional SKUs, order numbers, LPNs or other order identifiers and Infoplus will narrow your search down to include those parameters. 

The Scan-SKU feature increases your options for customization to run your warehouse as efficiently and effectively as possible. This update also moves towards a paperless fulfillment process, meaning less mistakes and less waste. 

Warehouse Table Updates 

In the warehouse table, we have added some new tabs to the bottom section. 

  • Pack Station Criteria
  • Ship Station Criteria
  • Item Barcode Fields

The Pack Station Criteria and Ship Station Criteria in Infoplus have been retired and moved to live within the Warehouse table settings. You can access these settings when editing a warehouse. 

Note: In order to scan a SKU in the modern mobile apps, the order needs to be in the “processed” status. 

To learn more about how to set up and best utilize the scan-SKU feature, take a look at the Knowledge Base article, which will take you step-by-step through setting up and utilizing this new update.
