All aspects of barcode labeling are managed within the core DATASCOPE WMS software. Each labeling option can be configured to the client’s needs. All labels are setup in the software as crystal report templates with a data xsd.
DATASCOPE ships with a standard set of labels as defined in the Label Template booklet. Each of those standard templates can be customized by the client in crystal reports.
No third party labeling software is required with a DATASCOPE WMS implementation.
Some labeling options available are the following:
- General product labels
- Reprinting of TrackID labels (E.g. pallet labels)
- Operator cards and Operator labels for user logins
- Cart or trolley labeling
- Tote labelling
- Carton Labeling (Scanner based)
- DATASCOPE automatically prints a labels on any receipt, for picking and dispatch.
TrackIDs (License Plates)
Every product is tracked through the operations with this unique ID. Each ID can hold multiple SKU’s or be set to only allow a single SKU. The movement processes on the scanner are simple and effective as one simply scans the TrackID barcode during the transaction.
TrackID type and TrackID status allow the software to control transactions and behavior. The purpose of the trackID defines its type, namely normal, pickface, picking, shipping. This allows for easy user recognition and reporting.
TrackID status plays a large role in controlling transactions and reservations on trackiDs. For instance, if a receipt is processed off a purchase order or Job and the SKU on the TrackID is flagged in SYSPRO as inspection required, the receipt will process to SYSPRO and print the required labels but the TrackIDs will be set to a status of ON HOLD. Based on warehouse settings we may allow these TrackIDs to be packed away or not. All ON HOLD TrackIDs are excluded from any picking process.
