As warehouse operations become more dynamic, the risk for inaccurate shipments has increased, costing businesses approximately $15 per returned package. That translates into nearly $1,500 spent for 100 mis-shipped orders. Inaccurate shipments also impact customer satisfaction, loyalty, brand reputation, and employee morale. While there are many efficient methods to improve order accuracy and warehouse management, utilizing technology to improve shipping best practices is a smart place to start. One cloud-based technology approach to consider is using Salesforce barcode scanner technology provided by Ascent Solutions and Zebra Technologies. Read on to learn more about the benefits of leveraging three best-in-class technologies to achieve a complete view, or as we call it, Operations 360 on Salesforce.

Where Teamwork and Dreamwork meet
Benefits of a Salesforce Barcode Scanner Approach with Ascent Solutions and Zebra Technologies
Much like a team, every part of your supply chain counts; therefore, no detail is too small to be overlooked. Combining intelligent cloud-based software and durable hardware, Ascent Solutions maximizes warehouse operations with better order accuracy from scan to scan. Consider:
- Adaptability is key. Nowadays, warehouses and distribution centers produce many types of labels for a variety of functions. Since one label doesn’t “fit all” application requirements, labeling software must be versatile enough to create different label types. Applications such as Ascent’s Label Anything works easily with your Zebra printer to meet several unique applications ranging from compliance labeling to inventory control.
- Durability or nothing. Delicate labels have no place in the warehouse. The more delicate the label the easier they can tear, smear, or fade, erasing crucial inventory information. Moreover, labels must also survive storage and transportation environments. To secure label lifespan, Ascent recommends Zebra Certified Consumables, which are engineered to endure thermal heat, freezing temperatures, and abrasive materials without losing legibility.
- Simplicity means accuracy. Keeping operations simple helps minimize distractions; however, devices such as Zebra’s ultra-rugged handheld scanners take simplicity one step further. Integrating remote configuration and multi-code data capture, ultra-rugged scanners reduce time spent managing and processing pick lists, allowing you to complete over 100,000 scans per charge.
Enhance your warehouse operations and labeling system with the leaders in efficient order fulfillment.
