Harnessing License Plating for Acumatica with Scanco

License plating is a valuable feature that Scanco’s Warehouse Management Systems (WMS) offers that transforms automated warehouse management for Acumatica. It provides a unique identification method for marking pallets or groupings of products and materials, eliminating the need to individually scan each item — and enabling rapid movement between locations.

Data optimization through License Plating significantly reduces the challenges faced in warehouse operations. Businesses can effortlessly track and access critical information by scanning barcodes, streamlining processes, and improving efficiency.

What is License Plating?

Inventory License Plating is a process that allows for seamless movement of items throughout the warehouse. But what exactly does it entail? It involves grouping and managing inventory using a unique identifier, typically an LPN (License Plate Number) label, which contains crucial information related to the materials, such as item details, quantities, serial numbers, lot numbers, locations, inventory status, manufacture dates, and expiration dates.

By assigning an LPN to a pallet, truck, or product set, you can easily track and manage it using Barcode or RFID technology. With a quick and easy scan of the LPN label, all information stored within it is instantly accessible, eliminating outdated manual inventory processes which consume valuable time and come with an inherent risk of human error, which can be costly for your business. Say goodbye to time-consuming inventory management and embrace the power of inventory License Plating to optimize your warehouse operations!

Here are some clear signs that indicate the need for License Plating and how it can significantly improve your efficiency and accuracy:

  6. Slow and Inefficient Warehouse Operations: If your overall warehouse operations are slow, inefficient, or outdated, implementing inventory License Plating can be a game-changer. It minimizes manual data entry, optimizes workflows, and accelerates processes, improving productivity and reducing errors.
