The automated fulfillment process starts with the inline system delivering a pre-opened SidePouch® mailbag to the operator workstation. This machine holds the bag open in a box-like position for easy loading. At the same time, the shipping label is automatically printed, applied and verified. An optional, programmable collator/inserter is designed to deliver catalogs, literature or other promotional items to the operator for hand inserting into the bag, while an optional inline printer produces the packing slip or invoice, and automatically inserts it into the bag.
The operator then cycles the bagger by scanning the next product to be loaded, triggering automatic sealing of the previously loaded and labeled bag. As that bag passes through the sealing area, the system closes out the order, while the next bag is presented for loading.
The ergonomic design and small footprint of the Autofulfillment SPrint easily integrates into existing packing and shipping areas. Each field-proven, the modular component is designed into the system for easy serviceability. The touch-screen control panel includes comprehensive reporting and monitoring functions, including productivity per hour, per shift, and per product line. This system is supported by technical phone support to keep it running at peak performance and features remote diagnostic capabilities, all while backed by the industry’s largest field service organization.
