You've hit the CONFIRM button to place an order - so what happens now?
The order is entered in our website and within minutes is transferred over to our warehouse management system which sits on a different piece of software.
All of our products have barcodes which record their location in the warehouse.
The warehouse management system automatically checks the items' availability and location in the warehouse and loads the order into the scanners ready for picking by one of the warehouse team.
The order is printed out and the main barcode on the invoice is scanned by the JAS picker.
The order can now be picked. All the items are shown on the scanning device telling the JAS picker where to go in the warehouse to pick them and how many to pick and put in the picking crate.
The crate containing the order items is then taken to the packing area.
The JAS packer scans the barcodes of each item, just like in a supermarket, which checks that each item is in the order. We also video each pack scan so we can be sure that nothing has been overlooked.
Once all the items have been packed, the scanner will tell the JAS packer that the order is finished.
The items are packed in the box and sealed. Once tap of the mouse and the correct courier label is printed out and ready to applied to the box.
Done - just ready for it to be collected by the courier later on in the day.
