Pros and cons of using Vantage generated tags during physical in

We print the tags on a Printronix line printer. The two part form has a carbon center. The form is modified from the Epicor 9.05.701 tag to what we need internally. The tags are printed in bin sort order.

 

The tag has an adhesive strip so the back part can be attached to the part at the bin location and the top copy removed and sent to the counting area where several people enter the counts into the computers there. By doing this we make sure that no tags are lost or not put in the proper locations. The color tag also allows for a visual check that all product was tagged and counted. Each year we use a different color tag.

Subject: [Vantage] Pros and cons of using Vantage generated tags during physical inventory

 

 

We normally in the past have just used tags we have purchased from a vendor to perform our yearly complete physical inventory with.  This year, we were asked about possible letting Vantage generate/print them.   Can anyone give me any pros/cons on doing this?

 

Best regards

For doing a full physical once a year we customized the label print out of Vantage.
Instead of the individual tags, changed them to regular 8-1/2 x 11 paper with 20 "tag" sections per sheet.
The sheets can be sorted by part locations instead of tag, to make it easier to count all the parts in one area.
