2ic Pallets in Action Minimize

Electronic data exchange – 2ic Pallets means you can send electronic transfer files rather than traditional paper dockets. This minimises errors and, most importantly, ensures movements are processed quickly. 

Selective data exchange – When initiating electronic data transfer you can select the pallet movement information that you wish to send eg only send movements off your account.

Electronically import data – 2ic Pallets can automatically import transaction files from your pallet suppliers and regularly specified intervals facilitating constant reconciliation.

Reconciliations – 2ic Pallets can reconcile your pallet supplier invoices either manually or electronically which means that Pallet Coordinators will no longer be faced with the laborious task of checking dockets off against invoices.

Docket Printing – 2ic Pallets will print dockets for all pallet movements thus avoiding the double handling and errors inherent in the use of the hand written alternative.

Comparison of running balances – 2ic Pallets tracks two running pallet balances comparing your physical on hand totals with the balances maintained by your pallet supplier. That is, it compares what you actually have with what you are paying for.

Multiple pallet suppliers – 2ic Pallets will manage pallets from multiple suppliers (Chep, Loscam, CPC, LPR).

Cost Data – 2ic Pallets can provide you with valuable cost information such as the cost of delayed transfers and the average cost per pallet.

Outstanding Pallet Monitoring – For trading partners, with whom you exchange pallets, 2ic Pallets can automatically alert you when any such organization exceeds a pre-set limit of outstanding pallets.

Delayed transfer – 2ic Pallets facilitates the implementation of delayed transfer policies based on trading partner profiles.

Reporting – 2ic Pallets delivers extensive reporting capabilities for both operational and managerial review.

Online help – 2ic Pallets has a comprehensive online help facility that helps staff training and operation.

Networking – 2ic Pallets enables multiple users to access the system simultaneously.

Interfacing – 2ic Pallets comprehensive interfacing capabilities ensure the system can be readily linked to other operational and accounting IT applications.

What do the pallet companies think of us?

2ic Software has good working relationships with the pallet companies and we make every effort to maintain these relationships. There is no "us against them" attitude from either side.

Our focus is making the task of managing pallets more efficient for pallet users and reducing their risk of losing pallets. Both of these things make pallet users worry less about pallets, and this benefits their pallet supplier because happy customers are less inclined to switch.

Pallet users with their accounts under control are also much less demanding on the pallet company for support.

Like any service business, no pallet company tries to make using their services more difficult for their customers. Good pallet control software contributes to making it easy.
