Guest Post: Latitude with QubeVu for Accurate Dimensioning

September 1, 2016 Rebecca Tonks

 

Hi everyone. My name is Kim Karvonen. I’m a sales manager at Postea, one of PathGuide’s technology partners. I had the opportunity to speak with many of you back in May at the PathGuide Latitude User Conference where we demonstrated our QubeVu Dimensioning Solution, working together and integrated to Latitude’s Manifest and Shipping System. PathGuide was kind enough to let us introduce ourselves here and explain what we do and how it might be helpful to your business.

What’s QubeVu?

QubeVu offers the most advanced technology in the dimensioning market. Our solution provides certified dimensions of any object – regardless of shape – in under a second.

Scanning is automatic with no button presses or special alignment required.

Our workstations are available in several small-footprint configurations to fit into any warehouse or distribution center. All are built for rugged industrial use, with no moving parts. In addition, QubeVu takes a picture of every object it scans – indispensable for verification and claim protection. See more details about our products here.

QubeVu is fully compatible with the Latitude WMS and the Latitude Manifest & Shipping System to record dimensions and print accurate shipping materials on the spot. PathGuide and QubeVu engineers can provide a custom solution if you have specific needs.

Why is accurate dimensioning important?

Many major carriers have switched to a dimension-based pricing model, so companies without the ability to automatically measure package dimensions – or those who regularly ship oddly shaped items – will struggle to quote shipping costs to their customers at the time of purchase. Knowing the exact dimensions of SKUs also lets them cut costs by using the correct sized packaging to eliminate void space.

Many of our customers also use QubeVu to verify that their shippers are billing them correctly. In one case, a customer discovered they were being overcharged and used the data from QubeVu and Latitude to negotiate a substantial refund from the carrier. That company realized ROI for the implementation in just a couple of months!

Other benefits of more accurate dimensioning include the ability to:

  • Store dimension data and pictures for each SKU in Latitude WMS master files to check insurance claims
  • Reorganize the warehouse more efficiently by dimensioning all incoming items
  • Use size data for better-informed negotiations with carriers
  • Cut picking and packing times by picking directly into the correct size box
