Kore's Package Contents Tracking (PCT) is an optional module for Kourier Freight Control, which allows your shipping personnel to use supermarket-style scanners to pack outgoing product for shipment. With PCT installed, you get SSCC-128 compliant package "license plate" labels, optional package contents labels, and all necessary data for full package-level detail Advance Ship Notices. Everything you need to satisfy the most demanding e-commerce trading partners.
Package Contents Tracking provides you with all the data required for full, hierarchical Advance Ship Notice e-commerce transactions. Using any off-the-shelf barcode scanners, your shipping and packing personnel can quickly and efficiently collect package-level contents data while they are placing your product in the shipping boxes. SSCC-128 compliant "license plate" labels and optional package contents labels are printed for each shipped package.
PCT is designed to use supermarket-style scanning stations to scan the barcode of each product as it is placed in the box. It also supports shipping of full case-pack product, as well as placing of full case-packs and mixed-product boxes on pallets. Controls are available to allow/disallow/warn for over- or under-shipments, and the user may display a screen showing what is short-shipped. PCT may be configured for separate packing stations and shipping stations, or for integrated "one-step" packing and shipping. You can also customize the SSCC-128 labels for your trading partners.
If you have the capability to send e-mails from within your ERP system (such as that provided by Kourier Messenger), PCT provides data Dictionaries which can embed package-level detail and tracking information in an outbound Advance Ship Notice e-mail. Your customers can receive an e-mail showing them what was shipped and the contents of each box, and they can even click on a link in the e-mail to track their packages at the UPS or FedEx web site. You can realize a very substantial decrease in your Customer Support costs, and an increase in your Customer Satisfaction with this feature.
