In the company blog, QC Software’s inventory management application accurately processes advanced shipping notices was explained. As inventory is received, the system already has the product and shipping information. When cartons are scanned, the system quickly receives, validates and directs the orders to the appropriate area for consolidation and shipping. If additional inventory is needed, this application accurately tracks inventory throughout the warehouse and can quickly flag items to be picked.

Consolidation of orders from different suppliers is a targeted approach that provides customers with the inventory and quantities needed in the same shipment. Large and small manufacturers, retailers, distributors and transportation companies are realizing the benefits.
