BioBased – Lot Tracking Concept
We’re lot-based, so you go in and do your assemblies, pull your raw materials and it gives you a selection of all the lots and how much is available for you to draw from and it immediately updates all your inventory. It’s doing the manufacturing so we can get all the costs rolled into the cost per pound or cost per set.
Tina Miles, Controller, BioBased Technologies
Grande Cosmetics – Lot Tracking Concept
I like Acctivate’s lot control. It helps us keep track of what lots of a product are older and what lots are newer. We can make sure we are getting the older stuff out faster because we have a lot of products with multiple lots that we are constantly getting in because they are fast-moving products.
Marc Tull, Warehouse Manager, Grande Cosmetics
Channel Seafood – Lot Tracking Concept
The lot number control function in Acctivate is helpful because with so many SKUs, it’s just not enough that we have an item code. For each item, we might have the same item code with about five different lots because we received it in five consecutive shipments. Acctivate keeps track of the lot numbers.
Mike Shooshani, Owner, Channel Seafoods International
Durum USA – Lot Tracking Concept
Lot numbers are assigned to our wire and powder products mainly so we can track defective products and quality issues, as needed. In Acctivate, we can go back and pull a lot number out, track it down to where it came from, who it came from, who it went to and pull that lot if we have to.
Ben West, Controller, Durum USA
Eclipse Aesthetics – Lot Tracking Concept
If there was a problem with a certain lot we’re able to run a report and identify every customer we sold a specific lot to. That’s a very important aspect of the software that we utilize.
Paul O’Brien, CFO, Eclipse Aesthetics
Swiftly Address & Handle Issues, i.e., Product Defects & Recalls for Raw & Finished Products
Know and track finished goods and each component via lot/batch numbers to handle arising situations with ease. Lot numbered products can be tracked from origination to production to fulfillment instantly.
Multi-level bill of materials (BOM) allow for unlimited components to be specified for the production of a finished good assembly or kit along with the the lot number and actual cost value.
Also, gain full workflow visibility of products during manufacturing to easily locate products and perform cost analysis.
Capture True Cost of Goods Sold at the Lot Number Level
Acctivate offers an actual cost method to tie multiple costs to a group of products by lot number by figuring the weighted average of all purchases for the specific lot.
Any additional costs, beyond the purchase price of a product such as duties, taxes, VAT, government fees, customs, freight, insurance and other charges are figured into the per unit cost with easy allocation using Acctivate's Landed Cost feature.
Optimize Warehouse Operations With the Ability to Generate & Scan Lot Number Encoded Barcodes
When product arrives at your warehouse, items are picked off warehouse shelves, inventory counts for a multitude of products are performed, product needs to be transferred from one warehouse to another—Acctivate Mobile Warehouse Management functioning on a mobile barcode device injects precision & speed into these operations.
With a single scan of the lot numbered barcode the processes are initiated and completed on the mobile device, which can be critical for compliance with regulatory requirements in some industries.
