The Retail Unity packing station solution differentiates between:
- Single-order batches (batches with single item orders)
- multi-order batches (batches with multi-item orders)
- (so called) combi-order batches.
Combi-order batches are a unique feature with the ability to combine picking-lists from different stock locations at the packing station. Through this feature, Retailers are able to fulfil orders from a combination of dedicated E-Commerce stock and the stock that is reserved for inventory replenishment. This means there is no need to physically combine stock or alter the traditional Retail workflows to adopt an omnichannel strategy.
Compatibility with ERP and WMS systems.
Supports a wide range in hardware from all price classes
The solution can be completely self sufficient but is also built to be compatible with existing WMS and ERP systems. The APIs and wide range of import and export capabilities makes it possible to exchange picking routes and statusses. Also any type of laser or label printer, and any type of barcode scanner is supported. At the distribution centre the solution is also compatible with industry standard handheld terminals.
