Mobile Bale Scan is an eCotton product from EWR, Inc.
Using a mobile device (smartphone or tablet) and a bluetooth-enabled handheld laser barcode scanner, cotton warehouses can perform these functions:
- Record bale locations
- Verify shipping orders
- Collect received bales
- Paperless picking list
- Picking list verification
- Reception Window
*** IMPORTANT RESTRICTIONS (read before installing):
*** Your warehouse must be subscribed to IsMyLoadReady.com (an eCotton service) in order for you to send or receive data with this app.
We have tested with the Symbol LS3578-ER handheld scanner. Any scanner that supports the "HID" bluetooth profile should work with this app. Please contact us before purchasing a scanner to ensure compatibility.
- Identify a location and then scan bales as they are stacked. When complete, data is uploaded to your eCotton Warehouse System wirelessly, so there's no need to dock the device or scanner in the office.
Shipping Order Verification:
- Select a shipping order to work with by scanning the shipping order or marks barcode, or select manually from a list.
- Select an inbound mark to work with (from a list or scanned from a barcode), then match up PBI numbers with warehouse bale numbers. Even record damaged bales if you like, which can send an email with attached photo of the damaged bale. When complete, data is uploaded to your eCotton Warehouse System wirelessly...no docking of the device or scanner in the office, and no chance of losing a day's worth of work.
Paperless picking list:
- Accesses picking list data that is prepared by the eCotton Warehouse System. A list of bales to pick is presented, and bale numbers are verified as they are pulled from stock and scanned. Picking lists can be divided and assigned to any number of workers or by equipment (forklift) ID.
Picking list verification:
