Barcode inventory control & scan pack quality control system

About GroovePacker

GroovePacker is a barcode inventory and scan pack quality control system designed to prevent picking and shipping packing errors, and update warehouse inventory in real-time

After importing orders from an order manager (BigCommerce, Magento, Amazon, etc.), GroovePacker helps warehouse packers ensure perfect accuracy by guiding fulfillment staff through the packing process, allowing them to verify each item by scanning it's UPC / barcode. GroovePacker catches pick / pack errors before items are shipped, helping to minimize losses to inventory, and decrease instances of customer dissatisfaction and negative feedback.

GroovePacker supports multiple barcodes per product and can scan multiple items at once with case or pack barcodes. A record of all scans is kept and packer performance statistics allow warehouse managers to see how their team is doing.

Key benefits of GroovePacker

  • GroovePacker's intuitive interface enables same day setup and instant user adoption with minimal training.

  • Items can be scanned on mobile devices as they are picked and packed, with the GroovePacker mobile app for iOS.

  • Every item ordered can be scanned and verified as it's packed; multiples are counted, kit items are scanned, and every scan is logged.

  • GroovePacker pulls shipment details from Shopify (or other order managers) via API or .csv import.

  • GroovePacker supports multiple barcodes and SKUs for each product and with 'case' or 'pack' barcodes, can scan multiple products at once.

  • Reminders and special notes (e.g. "ensure cap is on securely") can be displayed whenever a specific product is packed for shipping.

    GroovePacker allows my company to ship out many orders for many different company without worrying about duplicates or mistakes in inventory. If you have already scanned an order, it will tell you that it has already been scanned and you can not proceed with shipping anything. If you grab the wrong product for an order and try to scan it in, a buzzer will sound to let you know you are trying to enter in a wrong product, and it will not proceed from there.

    Pros

    GroovePacker is very easy to use. It shows you all the orders that you have, as well as the ones that have shipped. It is an awesome safeguard against sending out multiple orders, so it saves time and money from mistakes.

    Cons

    Sometimes the software is a little glichy, but once it is fixed, it works like a charm.

    Highly recommend setup in my opinion was very simple anyone with excel spreadsheets of there product will have this up and running in no time. I dont know where this app has been hiding but they need more exposure because this beats the socks off any other quality control I've seen. Tech support was always prompt with knowledgeable and clear cut responses to my questions and were more than helpful when setting up some more advanced features after becoming comfortable with the software. Dont let the initial charge scare you away you will more than make up the initial investment when your shipping errors go down. On top of that you dont risk any unhappy customers

    Pros

    This is by far the easiest bar code scanning software I have used to date. I can now have my inventory controlled by a 3rd party software, my shipping done with ship station, and now order quality control done with style utilizing Groove packer. Has a very nice bar coding feature which allowed me to dump the clunky outdated inventory system I was on and utilize this for bar coding and Quality control. Favorite part was being able to split order in ship station prior to groove packer uploading the order so I didn't have to deal with dropship items mixed in with my locally housed items. This was my biggest complaint with skuvault which we were on before this app came along.

    Cons

    I would love to see a little more integration with the ship station chrome plugin so it would automatically pop back in forth between orders but this app works wonderful with my favorite shipping app ship station. IT was lacking a scanning software and this works wonderfully. I actually love the fact that I have more control over my orders because I or my management will approve the orders via ship station before tagging them to be uploaded to Groovepacker.

    Overall, the barcode scan validator was a gamechanger for my order fulfillment team. It decreased misships and helped improve inventory accuracy. This also meant we had less frustrated customers contacting us because they were shipped the wrong order. So a win for customer service as well. Would recommend to anyone looking to solve inventory accuracy issues within their warehouse.

    Pros

    Barcode validator! Helped increase our packing accuracy significantly. And it worked well in conjunction with ShipStation.

    Cons

    Not much visibility in the dashboard, and it took a while to test and set up.

    GP served us well. It took us from shipping the wrong item to 30% of our customers to shipping the right item to 100% of our customers. For years! We have grown to the point where a 3PL is needed now. Dan and GP supported and accommodated us during our ups and downs faithfully during our growth.

    Pros

    The scan and pack feature is critical to successful shipping. It has the ability to auto import products and barcodes from orders (ShipStation for us) and rapidly allowing us to start scanning and packing. GP does not allow for failure-if an order is not scanned correctly for the items in the order, GP will not close the order. Highly customizable with in depth and versatile features yet intuitively easy to understand and use. Their key ability to create an alias for a sku/barcode saved us on multiple occasions. Support for GP is by email with rapid response. In the midst of shipping 2000 orders, GP support was emailed, responded and resolved our issue immediately. (It was us and not GP!)

    Cons

    Virtually nothing.I know it's hard to believe, but I did not find one aspect of the software not likable.

    Best Software for Order Checking

    Reviewed on 2020/06/08

    Pros

    This is one of the most well thought out software products I have ever implemented. Feature set, speed and stability are all excellent. Implementation was fast and the product support team is fantastic. The "video game" style interface is quickly adopted by new employees.

    Cons

    There is no native interface with our eCommerce / shipping software solution (Nexternal), so we have to jump through more hoops than we would like to get data into GroovePacker.
