Warehouse Management - Using barcode FROM supplier

David Antonacci

We are starting to use the warehouse management module and will soon need to integrate barcode scanners to receive and ship products.  We don't want to assign a unique barcode of our own, we want to use the barcode that is on the packaging supplied by the manufacturer.

We receive their inventory manifests three weeks ahead of the shipment and would like to have the data in the system so that when we scan their barcode, it receives it in to our system and then can be used when shipping the items.

Is there a way to do this?  What info do I need to have and where do I add it?

Hi David,

In standard, the field EAN is used as the barcode field. If you only have one supplier per product, you may fill the field with the supplier barcode there. Otherwise, you can just enter the code in the field "Supplier Product Code" and may have to change the system to search for the barcode in that field.

Good Luck
