Efficiency is the goal. The Stone Edge Order Manager gives you the tools to achieve it!

With multiple tools for picking, packing and shipping, the Order Manager will help streamline your operations, eliminate packing errors and reduce labor costs. The program includes its own UPS and Fedex certified shipping systems. It is also integrated with Endicia Dazzle for shipping via USPS. Shipping labels can be printed whenever you are viewing an order or in a batch mode. However, most merchants use the QuickShip or Pack & Ship screens.

Picking Orders

Picking orders is one of the most labor-intensive jobs for the typical ecommerce company. Improving the efficiency of our pickers can increase customer satisfaction and reduce labor costs. But no single picking system will work for all companies. The Order Manager includes several ways of printing pick tickets:

  • Discrete Order Picking (Pick-to-Order)
  • Cluster Picking (Pick-by-SKU)
  • Pick lists can be sorted by SKU or Location

The Enterprise Edition of the Order Manager includes a Warehouse Management System with advanced pick list management features:

  • Create multiple pick lists
    • Use complex selection criteria to select the orders and/or items to appear on each list
    • Organize pick lists by priority for daily use (e.g. single-item orders shipping via express, etc.)
  • Discrete Order Picking (Pick-to-Order)
  • Cluster Picking (Pick-by-SKU)
    • Pick-to-Bin (order allocation at the packing station)
    • Pick-to-Cart (order allocation at the picking cart)
  • Track worker productivity
  • Additional warehouse management features coming soon!

QuickShip

Quick Ship is for merchants who need a quick way to print shipping labels for one or more orders, but do not have to barcode scan or otherwise confirm each item as it is packed. Here are some of the major features of the Quick Ship system:

  • Very fast – get the weight from a scale and/or print a shipping label with just one or two button clicks or barcode scans
  • Uses the Order Manager’s integrated shipping software for UPS and FedEx, as well as Endicia Dazzle for USPS shipping
  • Supports barcode scanners, electronic scales and label printers
  • Can print combined packing slip / shipping labels for UPS and Fedex
  • Build a list of orders to pack, or just enter or barcode scan an order number
  • Can be used efficiently as a separate shipping station if packing is done elsewhere
  • Can automatically set the status of each order after it is shipped

Pack and Ship

The Pack and Ship System lets you scan the barcode of each item as it is packed, which virtually eliminates packing errors. It is ideal for companies with large or complex product lines or who use seasonal labor that might not be as well trained or as familiar with your products.

The typical process for packing and shipping an order is:

  • Scan the order number of an invoice
  • Put an empty box on your scale (optional)
  • Scan each item as you pack it
  • When the last item has been packed, the program will get the weight from your scale, then print a UPS, FedEx or USPS label

Using the Pack and Ship System, you can:

  • Pack by order or by SKU
  • Collect serial numbers for specified items as they are packed
  • Set-aside partially packed orders and retrieve them for completion at a later date
  • Charge credit cards for orders that have not been paid yet
  • Print invoices and packing slips
  • Print shipping labels without going through the packing process
  • Review recent UPS and FedEx shipments
  • Run UPS and Fedex end-of-day processes
