Labels for finished goods are generated using TransLution™ and applied to pallets at the end of production. With a single scan of these labels all the items required for manufacturing are issued to the job and the finished goods are receipted into SYSPRO. The pallets scans are logged and grouped before posting to SYSPRO to reduce the volume of transactions in SYSPRO.
Pallets are also scanned into transit when leaving the production warehouse and out of transit on reaching their destination. These stock movements are updated to SYSPRO to keep SYSPRO accurate. The system also facilities bin transfers of pallets and stock takes, both of which also update SYSPRO directly.
