Infoplus now has the ability for you to create Warehouse Loads, to track your outbound pallets, master cartons, and staged cartons, along with GS1-128 labels for your EDI / big-box retail orders. In addition, you now have greater control over how you rate shop in Infoplus, and we have one bonus update to help you get ahead of your fulfillment processing.
To support outbound pallets and master cartons, as well as staged outbound cartons, Infoplus has developed a new record type known as Loads. Using Loads you’ll be able to:
Loads in Infoplus are created and managed in the new Warehouse Loads Mobile Floor App:
The ability to use Loads has also been integrated into the Pack Station, where you can easily add a closed carton to a load, and into the Ship Station, where you can scan a load to ship it.
Along with the Loads feature, there is now a Packing Details table which gives you full visibility to how your orders are packed into your loads, and at all levels, including cartons, master cartons, and pallets. Using this table, you can know what items shipped in what packaging, and you can share that data with your customers and partners.
Read more about Loads on the knowledge base, or reach out to our support team if you have further questions.
Directly within Infoplus, you can now create GS1-128 Labels (aka UCC-128 labels), which may be required by your EDI partners and big-box retailers that you ship to.
More flexibility and control has been brought to the Infoplus Rate Shopping feature so you can always ensure you get the best price on shipping and your items arrive on time.
To implement these new features, define your own Rate Shop Carrier options using the Carrier table and choosing a Company of “Rate Shop”. Then, select what services to rate shop when evaluating an order assigned to that Rate Shop Carrier, along with what Parcel Accounts to consider.
Please Note: Along with this change, the old Rate Shop Config table in Infoplus has been retired. The configurations that you previously had setup in that table have been automatically migrated to the new Rate Shop Carrier records.
The new Preview Fulfillment process allows you to quickly evaluate a selection of orders to gain insight into various “what if” scenarios. Eg: you can select anywhere from one to 10,000 orders and discover what would happen if you tried to fulfill these orders right now.
The Preview Fulfillment process can answer questions such as:
You can download a spreadsheet with all of the data generated by the Preview Fulfillment process, so you can manipulate and analyze the data so it works for you.
We can link to a gated resource within the blog listing if that makes sense to route users to gated content to capture qualifying information.
