As part of its ongoing software development for Dynamics 365 Business Central and additions to Microsoft AppSource, Insight Works has announced the availability of License Plating as a Business Central add-on and complement to Warehouse Insight. The License Plating add-on enables users to combine multiple warehouse items – including serial numbers and lot numbers – into one license plate number (LPN/master barcode) for simplified transaction management.
Insight Works’ powerful WMS mobile warehouse data collection app has now been made even more intuitive by allowing warehouse managers the opportunity to easily track entire pallets, boxes or containers of mixed items including mixed/lot serial numbers.
“License Plating from Insight Works was designed to be used alongside the Warehouse Insight WMS solution to manage warehouse processes in manufacturing, distribution and retail company operations,” states Brian Neufeld, Insight Works’ Director of Marketing. “Now, users can overcome supply chain challenges, speed up warehouse and shop floor transactions, reduce errors, distinguish each product carton or item with a unique license plate number in a warehouse setting, identify goods in transactions such as receiving and moving, reduce the number of scans necessary to enter a transaction and more.”
“Put simply, License Plating allows for efficient transactions which increase overall warehouse operation efficiency, providing the item, lot, quantity and location and ultimately eliminating the worry of incorrect data being scanned.”
Through this license plate management application, products and transactions can be sent to “staging areas” within distribution systems in one action, with reduced barcode scans equating to increased worker productivity, improved inventory accuracy due to less opportunity for errors and faster transactions.
“Moving product through a warehouse requires a plethora of scanning, but through the magic of License Plating from Insight Works, the product can be moved through with less scanning while helping to address errors related to manual input and data integrity,” adds Neufeld.
Supported editions and countries for Insight Works’ License Plating add-on include Microsoft Dynamics 365 Essential and Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Germany, Finland, France, Iceland, Italy, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom and the United States, respectively.
Warehouse Insight is itself an add-on for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central that provides warehouse and production employees with full access to Dynamics 365 Business Central via barcode scanners and handheld computers
