Epicor Mobile Warehouse provides a number of features that will help you organize and grow your business. Choosing the right technology for your business can make the difference between it thriving or just barely surviving.
Keep reading this guide as we take you through some of the best features Epicor Mobile Warehouse has to offer you and your company.
Some software programs are one-size-fits-all, but that won’t work for most businesses. After all, your company is unique and what works for other companies won’t necessarily work for yours.
That’s one of the things we love about Epicor Mobile Warehouse. It has a number of customizable settings that you can use to set up your software program in a way that works for you.
Some of the settings you can customize include:
- Proof of delivery
- Issues and returns
If you’re not sure how you should set up your ERP software, consider using an Epicor® consultant that can help you figure out which settings will work best for your company and aid in the implementation process.
Epicor Mobile Warehouse has a number of trackers that allow you to keep data organized. When you can quickly pull up the exact information you need, it saves you time and money.
Let’s dig into a few of the trackers this ERP software program has to offer you.
If you need to know what’s inside of a certain bin in the warehouse, opening it up is one option but that could take quite a bit of time to remove everything just to see if it contains what you’re looking for.
Instead, you can use the bin tracker tool to scan a bin or enter the bin number. Then, you’ll get a read-out of everything that’s currently in the bin and everything that’s already been removed from it.
Another option for finding certain items within the warehouse is to use the Part Tracker. With this tool, you’ll start by searching for the part by its number. Then, you’ll get detailed information about its location.
For the success of your business, you need to keep track of all of the transactions that happen for materials coming in and parts going out. An easy way to do this is with the transaction tracker.
You can look at all the transactions within a certain time period and filter the list so you can see a select few based on what you need to do with them. From there, it’s easy to get all of the data about each transaction.
One of the most useful trackers will let you see all of the assemblies, materials, operations, and resources that are going into a certain job. It can help you prioritize certain jobs and plan your manufacturing based on due dates and available supplies.
Keeping track of your employees and their work can be a challenging part of owning a business. However, if you want your company to thrive, you need to make sure everyone on your payroll is doing their job.
When you can track labor in the same place as everything else, it helps streamline your business so you’re not wasting time switching between programs nor will you have to learn a different program to track labor.
With Epicor Mobile Warehouse, employees can clock in, see their work queue, and more. They can do all of that without leaving the program, giving productivity a boost when employees are able to jump right into their workday.
Another essential thing you need to track as a business owner is your inventory. If things start going missing or aren’t arriving, that’s money lost and could quickly lead to lost customers and revenue.
There are easy and difficult methods for tracking inventory. If you want an easy method that will keep everything organized, Epicor Mobile Warehouse is a great option.
With just a few clicks, you can easily make adjustments to your inventory, note where it’s been moved to, and see exactly what you have on hand.
You can also set up alerts so you know when you’re getting low on certain items so you can order more. This helps you provide better customer service and avoids downtime because of a lack of materials.
Shipping and Receiving Assistance
Along with what you have on hand, you also need to know what’s coming in and what’s going out. After all, the foundation of your business is ensuring that your customers are receiving orders from you.
Epicor Mobile Warehouse helps streamline both of these processes. Let’s take a closer look at some of the features it offers for each of these aspects of your business.
When shipping items out, there are a few features that will assist you. These include:
- Confirm customer shipping
- Custom shipment creation
- Creation of pick lists
- Transfer order (TFO) shipments
You can also use the Master Pack tool to group shipment packs together to save on shipping and provide better customer service.
As you receive items, you also need to be sure each shipment is being recorded and that your inventory ends up where it should.
Here are some features that assist with receiving:
- Receipt of containers
- Transfer order receipts
- Job receipts
Epicor Mobile Warehouse also creates a paper trail so you can follow your inventory and makes it less likely for materials to disappear. And, when there are discrepancies, it’s easier to locate them and resolve the issue.
