This speaks directly to the metrics that ShipHero can move for our clients. One way to increase warehouse efficiency is to increase picking efficiency. One way to lower the number of mis-picks is to increase picking efficiency.

UoM inventory helps you understand how you should count and track your stock. It informs your team of how a product type shall be coming in or out in quantities, such as boxes or pallets, and ensures that the quantities sold for customers are correct, such as a piece of T-shirts instead of boxes. Different stages of products will require different UoM inventory to purchase, track, and sell items. Therefore, it’s important to understand the types of UoM, how it benefits your inventory management, and how you can digitalize the UoM.

Based on rules defined in the system, the act of “shipping” the order may also result in an invoice being printed (that could accompany the shipment), and even posted. Once the order has been shipped, MetaShip maintains a history of the shipment, the number of boxes shipped, and the items assigned to each box.
