As our team continues to grow with key, strategic hires, we are thrilled to announce the addition of Strategic Business Account Manager Errett Thomas to the ScanForce Sales Team! Errett will be working closely with many of our Sage business partners to help them identify needs their customers have around barcode scanning and mobile warehouse & sales automation and apply the appropriate ScanForce solutions to fit those needs.
In one of our most well-attended webinars in company history, we recently introduced our new solution to automate Sage Production Management for Sage 100cloud.
See our previous blog on the topic: Production Management Automation for Sage 100cloud is here!
In this 30-minute webinar, you'll hear from Timothy Harfield, head of Product Marketing for Sage 100cloud, on how Sage Production Management helps manufacturers achieve visibility into the production process.
ScanForce is once again bringing our best-in-class mobile solutions to the Sage 100cloud market!
This past year, Sage released the Sage Production Management module, a long-awaited update to the functionality previously housed in the Sage 100 Work Order module.
For nearly a decade, ScanForce has been a member of 90 Minds, a member-only community for ERP consultants and resellers. We get a lot of value out of this group because the majority of the members are our business partners who recommend our solutions. Participating in the 90 Minds community helps us get insights into ways to make our products and services even better.
Amazon is arguably one of the highest volume warehouse operations on earth. But certainly when it comes to warehouse efficiency, bigger doesn’t always mean better.
Just watch ~60 seconds of this clip (it should start playing around the 9:20 mark - some parts after 11:15 are NSFW!) from a recent episode of “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver”, where a seasonal Amazon employee shares how it was not unusual for him to walk 15 – 17 miles a day during a 10-hour shift:
Watching this clip made us feel even better than ever about the things we do for our customers because it illustrates one of the warehouse scourges that we battle daily: inefficient picking processes.
Did you know that there are a number of free tools that were previously only available as add-on purchases but now come "out of the box" with Sage 100cloud?

Check out this infographic to learn more, and make sure you're taking advantage of all the functionality these solutions offer to help you avoid costly inventory mistakes.
Most inventory-based businesses have some sort of item classification, but it tends to be relatively basic. We often see classification based on a basic cost analysis or how fast the item moves. These are helpful, but they become even more valuable when combined.
At Sage Summit in Atlanta this May, Sage rolled out the first release of its long-awaited Production Management module. This module replaces the legacy Work Order module and brings the functionality into the Sage 100 "framework", meaning its architecture is more consistent with the rest of the Sage 100 product.
Excess stock is driven by incorrect levels.
A common problem we see is incorrect levels. It starts with how you control and manage your inventory, and it cascades from there into costly challenges like stock-outs and excess stock.
First things first: you have to know how much you have and where you have it.
There's one mistake that businesses with inventory make time and again. It's using a spreadsheet to manage their items. From location to levels, way too many businesses scrape by using this incorrect tool.
Excel may be inexpensive, but it comes with major costs.
