PSI’s Rapid Sort-N-Pack system with PSI’s FICs control software identifies single and multi-item orders in the totes and aggregates them with related documents utilizing a unique algorithm specifically designed to reduce order sorting and packing at the post pick stage of the order fulfillment process.  This patented process applies to many products however it is particularly beneficial for order fulfillment in the apparel industry.  
“Typically the picked orders are delivered unsorted and are manually sorted and packaged with a packing slip, return label and marketing collateral.”  Explains John Panunto, President of PSI Engineering.   “The Rapid Sort-N-Pack system automatically sorts the orders and prints on-demand the packing slip and/or return label; delivers it to the operator with marketing collateral for packaging in bags or cartons and conveyed directly to shipping.”
“By eliminating several steps during order sorting…” States Tom Napier, Senior Account Manager, Automation Division, “…the order cycle time is reduced significantly and more orders can be processed and shipped daily.”
Rapid Sort-N-Pak provides mid-sized to large e-Commerce companies a cost effective solution to significantly improve goods-to-person order fulfillment and increase profit per order.
