Minimize Shipping Errors

When you’re short on staff, use IDEA Volumetrics data as a quality check for shipments. By comparing the complete, accurate data from IDEA Volumetrics to the shipment weight, you can ensure the distribution center picked the right products in the right quantities.


Enhance Warehouse Efficiency and Automation

After dimensioning inventory, you know exactly how much space each product occupies in your warehouse. You can slot items faster, plan for future warehouse capacity, and design automation systems accordingly.

Access Continuously Updated, Manufacturer-authorized Data

IDEA Volumetrics is assembling and refreshing the weights and dimensions catalog regularly in IDEA Connector to feed distributor and manufacturer e-commerce platforms as well as PIM, ERP, and warehouse management systems. In addition to gathering existing weights and dimensions information from manufacturers, IDEA is sourcing unavailable data from a network of distributor customers through inventory dimensioning services.


A Data Collection Process you can Trust

IDEA is partnering with Avalon CSC, an experienced supply chain and logistics company, to collect weights and dimensions information. When gathered onsite, the primary source of the data is collected through a Cubiscan 325. The IDEA Volumetrics team provides resources for product scanning, performs quality assurance, uploads product files, and regularly refreshes the catalog for customer access.
