We have a peculiar problem and want to see if ERP can be customized to handle this requirement. We print QR code labels through Tuhund because printing with printer software is not practical for such a high number of records. For the bins containing single item, there is no problem and ERP is printing correctly with big and bold font for the part number. But for the bins where we have multiple items in the same bin, ERP is printing only the first product’s part number. We would really appreciate if ERP could print up to 5 part numbers in one label and adjust font size also accordingly. That is, if there is a single item in the bin, then we need big font so that part number covers entire label which is left after QR code. If there are five items, ERP should fit all five in the same space. We have multiple label sizes but for these bins that have compartments, we use a fixed label size 100 mm * 40 mm.
We need ERP customized as soon as possible as we want to do a stock audit in a week and half of our bins to not even have QR code labels because of this reason. If this customization can be done, how long will this ERP customization take?
Tuhund is a very smart and dynamic ERP system and it can handle a lot of your requirements without customization. This requirement can be handled with ease in just a few minutes and we will do it for you. We have placed a request on your behalf and our support team will take care of this. Nevertheless, I would still provide the explanation here for those who like to play around themselves.
QR Code labels, in Tuhund, are created as label size PDF documents and it is those documents that are printed through label printer, barcode printer, or even an ordinary laser printer. Therefore, to design a QR label you will need to design it in PDF templates. To configure any PDF template in Tuhund or to create new templates, you will need to have the security access ADM004 (Manage PDF Templates.) The template is designed with simple HTML. From basic tags of HTML to advanced tags of HTML5 and CSS, you can use anything as long as you are getting your intended design. It is recommended to use graphics with a resolution higher than 300 PDI.
To meet your requirement without customization, you can create three templates instead of one.
- Single product
- Three products
- Five products
Please use names and labels that are understood very easily. For example :
- Location QR 100 x 40 - 1 Item
- Location QR 100 x 40 - 3 Items
- Location QR 100 x 40 - 5 Items
Next, you will need to use appropriate dynamic filed names. For instance, the field name for the product model is MODEL, and the field name for multiple models is MODELS. You can use whatever fields are required in your label. The system will seamlessly take care of the rest.
Particularly for the stock location barcode or QR code, if you use the field name MODEL, the system will print the model of the product for which the location is reserved. However, if the field name is MODELS, the system will print the model of the product for which the location is reserved on top irrespective of whether there is stock or not, and under that, it will print all models that are there in the location.
