In this week’s updates to Infoplus - Add Shipping Accessories When Placing an Order and Transforming Inventory (SKU to SKU or between LOB’s). Updates include Job Apps Support for Over/Under/Putaways, Ability to Specify Criteria in Receiving by Item, Generate PIT in Interactive Receiving, Sort Locations during Fulfillment, Infoplus EDI X12 Module, and Order Prices during Bulk Load Support.
Add Shipping Accessories When Placing an Order
You can now add shipping accessories to orders, like Signature Required or Insurance, in Infoplus. This can now be done when placing an order through the Infoplus UI by navigating to the Requested Accessories tab, then clicking the Add link within that tab. Alternatively, shipping accessories can be added when placing an order via the Infoplus API or via Infoplus Scripts.
The new Transform Inventory process allows Infoplus users to transfer the entire quantity of an item to a completely different item. This is also possible even if that different item is under a separate Line of Business. Use this new feature to avoid time-consuming inventory transfers and adjustments.
Added Support for Over/Under Picks/Putaways in the Jobs App
Improvements to the Jobs App, including :
- The “Run Job” link now appears when there is put back work. Previously, it would only appear if all pick work was completed.
Users can now put back items as needed that weren’t used in a Job.
- A “Done with Put back” button was added that can be used when not putting back an entire quantity of an item used during Job Assembly.
- Added the ability to under create items for a Job. Jobs can now be closed prior to completing the total number of assemblies for that Job.
- Ability to create Job Recipes in Infoplus based on Item Assemblies in Quickbooks.
Specify Receiving Criteria on an Item-by-Item Basis
Previously, Infoplus users were able to configure a Receiving Criteria to determine what data should be recorded at the time of receiving. This Receiving Criteria was universal and applied to all items which forced users to receive all items the same way.
Receiving Criteria can now be applied on an item-by-item basis.
Auto Generate Product ID Tags (PIT) in Interactive Receiving
The Interactive Receiving app has been updated to allow for automatic generation of Product ID Tags. When asked to record a Product ID tag, the Interactive Receiving app has a new button called “Auto” that will automatically generate a sequential value. Use this button when an existing Product ID Tag isn’t available and you need to generate one on the fly.
Sort Locations to Pick From During Fulfillment
Infoplus users now have the ability to specify how locations are sorted when picking items during fulfillment.
This is useful if you have a custom sorting method to apply to which locations get picked first. When creating or editing a fulfillment plan, there’s a new field called “Location Sort” in the Picking Options section. This field will allow you to sort your pick work by location address, or using a custom field that defines the sort order of your choice. Please contact Infoplus Support for assistance with adding a custom field to locations.
Infoplus EDI X12 Support for 850, 855, and 856 Documents
The newest version of the Infoplus EDI module with support for 850, 855, and 856 documents is now available. This new version allows Infoplus Scripts to make adjustments to inbound 850s and outbound 856s for non-standard setups. Please contact your Infoplus Account Manager to start integrating Infoplus with your EDI partner.
Support for Order Prices during Order Bulk Load
Support has been added for specifying order prices during the order bulk load process. Specify order level prices such as Shipping Charge, Subtotal, Tax, and Total. Order line level prices such as price and discount can also be called out during a bulk load.
