Many of our clients are now taking advantage of our automatic allocation of container items. These improved options calculate and include container items in your quotation depending on the inventory the customer requires. For example: Select a quotation with lengths of 3m scaffold and for every 75 pieces, either a “Scaffold Rack – 0.78m x 1.1m / 31in x 42in”, “Scaffold Pallet” or “Kwikstage Stillage” will be included in the quotation and yard reports.
To implement this function, the first step is to allocate the number of items in each container item. This is configured per code in the stock item configuration menu.
Set the Full Pallet Quantity for each item and the Pallet Full Threshold for each item. This allows you to ship a full container of items rather than ship a container of items which is almost full causing the yard employees to waste time removing items.
Here are the technical details for those who have the iScaf 6.5 release and are ready to configure these options:.
Within the iScaf configuration menu, use the miscellaneous option to allocate the following items.
Spacer Item – This allows you to separate wire bin palette or stillage at the bottom of your inventory list. Select an item number that you would like to be a spacer item.
Spacer Item “-1” means do not include a spacer item at all
Pallet_item – specify the item number for your Pallet item code
Wirebin_item – specify the item number for your wire bin item code
For Example item codes:
CSR “Scaffold Rack – 0.78m x 1.1m / 31in x 42in” (container item to be added automatically)
PALL “Scaffold Pallet” (container item to be added automatically)
When you have drawn your scaffold and ready to quote, use the following menu option to display the allocation in detail.
