Purchase, Replenishment, Forecasting Capabilities

Prevent loss of sales with automated inventory management.

The concept behind license plates starts with the idea of a collection. If you can track a collection using a serialized identifier (license plate number), then you can use a single scan for movements and transactions against a collection of inventory. License plates (LPs) not only bring efficiency in movements and transactions, but in QA processing and traceability reporting.

  • Streamline operations on the floor by pre-printing and activating license plates for additional label options.
  • Place an item or a warehouse full of inventory on hold in seconds by leveraging Mass LP holds.
  • Group like products and shipments by using nested LPs.
  • Translate license plates into UCC128 data for ASN shipping.
