Posted on Fri, Jul 25, 2014 @ 03:01 PM

Join speakers Caroline Walsh, Eric Alexander, Dane DeSantis, Bill Gaustad, and Cody Smith from V-Technologies, Website Pipeline, Scanco, SPS Commerce, and MAPADOC during the BUS-506 session at Sage Summit 2014. This session will explore the benefits of fully automating the supply chain and how you can get there with our combined offering!

Learn how Website Pipeline, SPS Commerce, Scanco, StarShip, and MAPADOC work together to bring you an integrated streamlined supply chain and customer service automation solution for Sage 100 ERP. During this breakout session learn how Sage 100 ERP customers can automate the entire warehouse and customer service process by allowing your website visitors and customers to place and track orders 24/7. Use a scanner to reduce time in picking orders and get a real-time view of inventory levels inside Sage 100 ERP eliminating mispicks. The EDI integration lets you print ASN labels from the handheld with real-time validation of data.  The combined solution then automates parcel and freight shipping from the scanned information and sends email shipment notifications complete with item to package detail. Other benefits include reducing carrier address correction fees using the embedded address validation features; using third-party insurance to save up to 85%; and reports on late deliveries to obtain refunds. Using Website Pipeline, Scanco, SPS Commerce, MAPADOC and V-Technologies together will optimize the entire pick, pack, and ship process and reduce duplicate data entry and associated errors!
