When shopping for barcode scanner software, it’s important to take into consideration both current and future needs.
Although you can’t predict with certainty when you’ll outgrow your current warehouse, if your company is in its growth phase, chances are good you’ll need to add at least one other location soon. That’s especially true if you want to improve delivery service to complete with the big boys like Amazon; customers who frequent Amazon look for overnight or two-day shipping. Multiple warehouse locations can help you offer faster shipping times by spreading distribution points across the country or to cities where the majority of your customers are found.
Having more than one warehouse comes with some challenges. You’ll need barcode scanner software and warehouse inventory software to manage multiple locations. The answer? Cloud-based systems.
Cloud-Based Barcode Scanner Software
By now, you’re probably aware of what a cloud-based system is and what it means. It’s essentially software that’s hosted on a server shared by many companies. The software is accessed through a web-based interface, so you can use it anytime and anywhere you have an internet connection.
Cloud-based barcode scanner software makes it easier to manage multiple warehouse locations. Software such as Scanco works with Sage ERP Solutions and several hardware options, so your team can use scanners, handheld devices, or terminals. Data flows from each location to the cloud-based ERP system and can be accessed anywhere or anytime. Just log in and you’ll see stock counts in Peoria, Dallas, Salt Lake City, or wherever you have warehouse space.
Modern inventory management calls for systems that span multiple locations. Trust Scanco solutions and Sage ERP to offer a great package that works for most business and warehouse needs.
