PackControl packaging registration: set it up within an hour

PackControl packaging registration: set it up within an hour

Converting your packaging registration from Excel to PackControl means fewer errors and faster delivery. But getting started with new software is tricky, right? Wrong. You can get started within an hour. How it works? We'll explain below.

Once you've opened a PackControl account, you can be up and running in no time. Step away from manually entering transactions in Excel right away in 3 small steps:

1. Create customers and/or suppliers

If you don’t have the time (or the need) to fill in or import all data for customers, suppliers, and carriers? Then you only fill in the essentials. A company name, client or supplier number, or, for example, the search term you use in your CRM. All you need to do is fill in the necessary information to get started in PackControl.

Do you want to add more data per customer, supplier, carrier, or other counterparties later? No problem, you can still do that. PackControl is here to make your work easier. So you don't have to know in advance exactly what you want to do with it – now or in the future. You can enrich all data later. Let's get started first.

PackControl is here to make your work easier. You don't have to know exactly what you want from right now. Just get started.

2. Add Packaging Items

Which items are you going to register? Maybe you want to start with only euro pallets. Only add those items to your packaging registration. The rest can be done later.

Nice to know about PackControl: the most common pooling items are already in it! You can copy it into your own administration and can get started right away. Easy.

3. Just start, the rest can be done later

You probably have ongoing balances with your customers and suppliers and agreements with carriers about responsibilities. All these data can be imported in advance, but if you don't have time for it right now, you can still just start working in PackControl.

Your packaging registration will continue as usual and at a later moment – and if necessary per counterparty – you can enter or import the current balances. There’s no need to do it all at once.

You may even want to start with only your largest customers or suppliers so that you can easily send them e.g. daily overviews. This way you can get used to your new system and expand slowly.

It’s easier than you think

We understand that starting a new packaging registration system sounds daunting. PackControl makes it easy for you. We have developed it with you in mind. The software is easy to understand and your work will be done faster as a result. Just start with the data that should always be in there. Only the bare necessities. After all, you don't want more work. If it is needed later, you can easily scale up.

So if your Finance Manager wants to make complicated calculations later on, he can do so. Even if you hadn't thought beforehand that they wanted it. And even if you later want to apply exceptions or deviations yourself, wish to automatically import daily balance statements, or link the entire packaging registration to your ERP, CRM, WMS, or TMS, you can always do so.

Quickly get started

As you can start without having to fill in an infinite amount of data first, you can get to work quickly. Maybe this will continue to be a replacement for your spreadsheets. Or maybe you will set up your ideal packaging registration system step by step, at your own pace. Completely automated, with all thinkable bells and whistles, or very simple, error-free, and (always) fast. You decide.

Packaging software is not an end in itself

At PackControl, we are convinced that software should help you move forward, not hold you back. It should benefit your work: how quickly you finish, how few mistakes you make, and even how much grip you get on financial settlement.

Maybe things go wrong in your spreadsheets too often. Or you just want to ensure proper registration of reusable packaging for your department.

Just get started

In PackControl, you only use the functionalities you need. And if you want to add more later, you can easily do so. You don't need to know and decide all that yet.
