Q-pack - Remote ‘Scanned’ Picking and Packing for Sage
Hand-held scanning & Verification of Pick Lists linked to SAGE SOP.
Q-pack is an innovative automated scanning system designed to verify that your Goods Despatched match the original Sales Order, reducing incorrect deliveries and therefore customer complaints.
Innovative automated scanning system
Following the entry of the Sales Order the resultant ‘pick list’ is downloaded onto a hand-held data capture unit. The operator will then be prompted to pick the items displayed on the screen – in walking order, if locations have been set up within Sage – and scan the barcodes attached to the packaging, entering a quantity where appropriate.
Example Delivery Note
If an incorrect product is picked, the unit sounds a warning tone and the user is prompted to scan again. Once a pick operation has been completed, the items can be packed into cartons and/or onto pallets, scanning each item in any order.
The hand-held unit will verify that each item packed appears on the original Sales Order as it is scanned, and conversely any attempt to pack an incorrect item will result in a warning tone and error message. Any item on an order that is not packed will be shown on an Exceptions Report.
At the end of the pick and pack process the system will print a delivery note showing the contents of the container(s) along with overall weight*, an essential requirement for airfreight operations.
The system will hold all scanned data in a database for audit purposes.

The above Q-data+ products require an additional bar code table in order to reference alternative or manufacturers bar codes. This can be in the form of Q-scan+ or Q-plus as detailed below.
Optional Bar Code Referencing.
All scanning products from Q-tron come in two variants. In their standard form they will only scan bar coded representations of Sage Product Codes. In their plus (+) form each Sage Product Code can be linked to a bar code table containing alternative bar codes. Therefore if an alternative code is scanned, the data is converted into its corresponding Sage Product Code. This feature also includes the ability to identify a packaging barcode and add a multiplying factor to the item quantity if scanned.
Optional serial number tracking.
This allows any item which has serial numbers to be recorded at the time of picking and stored in a table for traceability. If the corresponding purchase delivery is scanned this will link the sale to the purchase order.
Q-plus software contains the bar code table for use with Q-products where an alternative or manufacturers bar code number needs to be referenced against a Sage Product Code. It allows the manual input of bar codes data.
