Supermarket Order Generation

In this manual we explain how to create and manage a Supermarket order in your Unosof application.

Create New Supermarket order:

The Supermarket module is designed to assemble boxes from the packing station without a color recipe assigned. That means no sales- or packing swap takes place. The bunches being scanned need to match certain given parameters, such as a stem-count x bunch, package type, etc, it's also necessary to set how many bunches per box are allowed to pack and how many boxes in total are needed.

The goal is to minimize the workload on the sales department to manage these types of orders and these type of orders are mostly used for large-, specific SKU- mix box orders.

To create a new Supermarket order please go to Customers / Sales / Supermarket Order Generation

Please select the following parameters to create the new Supermarket order:

These orders give full control to the S3 packers, once the following parameters are established inside the module.

1.Select the Warehouse where the bunches will come from (All Warehouses is recommended for consolidated warehouses).

2. In the filter Length, are needed to select the length or lengths that you will like to create the boxes with.

3. Please select the number of Stems per bunch in this filter.

4. In this last multi-select filter, please choose the desire Package types needed for this new PO.

5. In the Max Bunches/Box is where you input the maximum amount of bunches per box.

If the packers in the S3 don't pack all of the 10 bunches that we inputted in this example, the box will not close.

Also if the packers want to pack more bunches, the system will not let them. In this case, the box will automatically close once they finish scanning the last 10 bunch.

6. If you wish to enter a message in all the boxes, the Box Label field is the indicated place to input that message.

7. BOX CAP is the last and probably the most important filter inside this module.

Please input the total amount of boxes you will like to send to your customer in this new supermarket order.

After all the filters are being correctly set up and verified, please hit the Generate Supermarket Order button to proceed with the creation of the new purchase order.
