Owning a scale to help your business is a very smart choice. However, using the scale “As Is” will slow your business down.
Follow me through this scenario: you suffered from trucking re-weigh charges so you bought a floor scale for your warehouse. Before you have the scale, your shipping department calculates the estimated weights of each pallet then fills in the Bill Of Lading (BOL). When it is done, they hand over the BOL along with the work orders to the warehouse. The warehouse workers make the orders and hand back the documents with PRO numbers so the office can follow up with the clients. Pretty smooth workflow. Only one thing: the weights are estimated. There’s a high risk the shipments will get re-weigh charges.
Now a floor scale comes into play. Your shipping department doesn’t make the BOL in the first place because they don’t have the exact weight information of the orders. So they only hand over the work orders to the warehouse. The workers make the orders and weigh the pallets on the scale. Then they write down the actual weights (or print them on a label). The workers give back the work orders with the correct weight information to the shipping department. The shipping department makes the BOL based on the weight information then hands over the BOLs to the warehouse. When the orders are picked up, the workers give back the BOLs with PRO numbers to the office for follow-up. In this case, the documents travel back and forward twice between the office and the warehouse.
Well, is it still a good thing to use a scale for your warehouse? Absolutely YES – as long as you get the “missing piece” to completely remove the downsides and improve the workflow.
The Prime Station Gateway software is the “missing piece”. It will change the workflow into this:
The shipping department gives the work orders to the workers. When the workers complete the orders, they weigh them. The floor scale will put the weight information on a cloud server. The shipping department makes the BOL based on the weight information on the cloud then gives them to the warehouse. The workers give back the documents with PRO numbers to the office for follow-up.
The data travel between the office and the warehouse so your employees don’t have to.
The Gateway software is super easy to use. The average training time is 4 minutes.
