[Audio] Alternative part picking for more than 80% of the orders is norm due high mix of software variant but the same hardware model. Every time in order to trigger the warehouse to pick the available model with inventory, O M need to check warehouse inventory and manual amend each and every order line to the finalized model with inventory in the Together with global I T, the team test and developed a new function in Atlas, by triggering system to perform an alternative part checking and auto amend the part number in the Sales Orders before releasing a pick-list to warehouse. This has greatly reduced the time spend performing inventory checking and alternate part number matching, and most importantly eliminate all risk of wrong model picking due to human error..

Scene 13 (5m 57s)

[Audio] U Parcel is a new domestic local forwarding service provider engaged to support the local delivery services. Due to the new setup, no API was established, resulting no tracking information available for real-time tracking. Daily, the team will have to provide email tracking details for every sales order to the customer and they will manually update the information into their web portal for publication to their end-customer.

[Audio] During normal return, RMA return units will still have the proper part number and serial number labels to allow the team do a system matching prior system receiving. But there are many times, the team will receive RMA returned units with missing part number labels, defect serial number labels that might resulted the team to spend time trying to match or retrieve serial number from past record assuming its correct.
