Custom Shipping labels

I use Report Builder for all of my shipping labels. Printed via
Zebra label printers. All of the reports are based on the order
table. Have not had a request I could not meet yet.

I am seriously considering the Express Ship feature in 6.0. We use UPS
Worldhship for almost everything. A feature we would like is the ability to
pass third party account numbers directly to the software. Many of our
customers want us to use their UPS account number for all shipments. Out of
the box the software only lets you enter this information as a note on the
picking slip. Customer service reads and enters the account number and
sends it to shipping. Shipping has to read and enter the account number,
kind of defeats the purpose. Regular shipments work fine with the ship-to,
tracking number and cost all done automatically.

Liked the package, didn't like the modification charge to add the third
party feature. Is anybody else looking at his module? Anybody using it?
Want to split the cost?

I WILL!

I agree. I want the module to help speed up the invoicing process. Right now we manually enter ALL shipping charges. It's a real pain, but it's kind of hard to swallow the cost of it!

Is anyone printing custom shipping labels for specific customers. We are
having more and more customers starting up automated receiving processes and
need their shipments bar coded to facilitate that. Each customer that has
asked has their own requirements. Vantage 5.2 doesn't help with that at
all. I would be interested if anyone has standardized the shipping label
with bar codes and are just having their customers deal with that.

Yes. With RB we do. I have them setup on a sub-menu under Shipping reports. Different flavors for various very demanding customers. In fact I am working on a new one right now. I have some samples in a PRL that I'll send off-line. Once you have a basic label the rest are easy to clone from it. These are for 4" X 6" on a Zebra printer but can be adapted to laser.

Todd,
Would you send me a copy of the shipping label report also.
I have not been able to get them to work great in crystal and a sample
would help me also to try in RB. TIA

Hi Todd,



We are also having to label to customer specs.

Would you be willing to share?



Thanks,

This may be more complicated than most of you are looking for, but I
thought I'd take a moment to explain what we are doing for bar-coded
and address labels. We have hundreds of customers with unique and
specific requirements.

When I started in the IT Dept and got involved with the Vantage
implementation my co-workers were already looking into a product
called Jet Form Central. It is software that will take data from a
flat file and send it to a label printer with the appropriate
formatting, based on some data in the flat file.

We design the label formats with a product called Bar-One. It is a
user friendly software for designing label layouts.

The front-end is an Access DB that I created. When a shipping clerk
needs to make a label and clicks the menu item to do so, they are
prompted for the Sales Order Num, Line, and Release that they are
shipping from. After a couple of seconds the screen is populated
with all relevant info about that Order. There is a portion of the
screen that allows them to fill in info manually and a portion that
lists the label types available to that customer that they can choose
with a click.

Once the info is filled in they click another button which exports
the flat file and in a couple of seconds the label is printed.

One reason we went with this kind of system is that we wanted to be
able to print labels prior to making the packing slips. We do a lot
of Kanban and prepack boxes well in advance of the actual ship date.
Another reason was for doing multiple labels. We may have 10 skids
of the same part and need 3 labels per box. The labels are numbered
1 of 10, 2 or 10 etc... and we need 3 copies of each. My program
allows shipping to enter parameters needed to print all 30 labels at
once.

If anyone wants more details let me know.
