Our Team is Growing Again – Meet Bryan Berry!

We were fortunate to not only survive but thrive over the turbulent months of 2020. Whether businesses were looking for ways to minimize contact and touchpoints in the warehouse, streamline operations to better respond to supply chain disruptions, or just wanted to improve their warehouse efficiency and productivity overall, Warehouse and Inventory Automation for Sage 100 and Sage Intacct proved to be in high demand in 2020 and into 2021.

In order to meet the increased demand while continuing to provide excellent service to our customers, prospective customers, and partners, we’ve added a new resource to our Sales team.

Sage 100 v2021 is out and we’re ready!

At ScanForce, we make it a priority to never hold our customers back from using the latest and greatest technology. When new mobile technologies hit the market, you can rest assured we’re working on compatibility well before the public release.

The same is true for your Sage ERP software.

ScanForce 2020 in Review

In ordinary times, we would share a look back at our year, complete with pictures of all the conferences we attended, our annual ScanFest Holiday Party, and other comings and goings. But of course, 2020 was anything but ordinary. 

Here’s a look back at what DID happen at ScanForce last year.

Highlighted Feature Video: Container Receipt Management

If you have items in transit to you - perhaps items are stuck on the water - and you've taken ownership of the inventory for accounting purposes but don't want the items reflected in inventory as available for sales, use Container Receipt Management.

How it works:

In Sage, create a Receipt of Goods for the PO, and enter the Container Number.

Highlighted Feature Video: Ship All & InstaShip

If you've completely staged an order and all items and quantities have been picked, you may want to ship the entire order without scanning each individual line/item. Ship All and InstaShip are two similar features that let you do just that without the need to rescan the entire order at checking and packing.

Highlighted Feature Video: Pick to Pallet

Pick to Pallet offers a streamlined method to stage orders by pallet and then quickly, accurately, and efficiently ship the pallets.

Items are instantly validated against the Sage sales order data providing accuracy in item picking from the item itself to the quantity and lot/serial data, where applicable.

Highlighted Feature Video: Wave Picking

Many ScanForce users can see tremendous gains in efficiency by using Wave Picking, which allows you to group Sales Order together so you can pick more than one at a time. This can reduce unnecessary trips back and forth across the warehouse, leading to faster order fulfillment.

When you need to "stage" items for shipping, but aren't ready to ship and invoice them, Sales Order Picking is the answer.

Watch this first if you missed our previous featured video: ScanForce Directed Picking (~3 minutes)

How it works:

ScanForce customers with WMS Advanced or Premium can access a sales order from Sage in real time from a mobile device/scanner.

Are your orders being picked in the most efficient order, or do your warehouse team find themselves criss-crossing and doubling back as they follow the order of a packing slip? All those extra steps can add up over time.

ScanForce Directed Picking lets you increase productivity by providing the user with a "roadmap" for each order.
