How Companies Use Technology to Tackle the Challenges of Standard and Variable Weight

When the weight of a product that’s been procured, sold, or shipped can’t be neatly categorized into traditional buckets like ounces, pounds, blocks, or cases—and when trading partners rely on different measures of quantifying those amounts—catch weight helps even out those differences.

Most enterprise resource planning (ERP) platforms lack catch-weight functionality, which makes management of this important process cumbersome, error-prone, and manually intensive. It can also throw inventory counts out of whack and lead to inaccurate invoicing, financial loss, and sales tax issues.

This white paper highlights the challenges companies face in this area and reveal how an integrated catch weight application bundle transforms NetSuite ERP into an even more versatile enterprise application for companies that use catch weight in their day-to-day operations.
