Remote Scanning of Picking & Packing for SAGE 50

Remote Picking & Packing for SAGE 50

Q-pack utilises a robust hand-held Data Capture Unit (DCU) to quickly and easily Pick and Pack Sales Orders.


Data Capture Unit (DCU) in Recharging/Download Cradle


The DCU is equipped with an integral CCD distance Barcode Scanner and a touch-screen display. It also has an alphanumeric keypad for manual input.


You can choose from three different keypad layouts to best suit your requirements.


Keypad Options


The scanned details are transferred to your computer either by ‘Live Posting’ via WiFi (if available) or manually by placing the DCU into its Charging/Download Cradle.


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.

Barcode Software Example Delivery Note

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.



Location, Batch and Serial Number Recording

Optionally, Q-pack can request entry of Locations, Batches and Serial Numbers where applicable. Once entered you can access the data using Q-LBSRec
