ASN (Advanced Ship Notice) Overview
ASN is a notification of pending deliveries, similar to a packing slip, sent in an electronic format to MMS once the vendor ships the product.
ASN (Advance Ship Notice) is the process which automates steps of the receiving process. A Serial Shipping Container code (SSCC) is included on each carton for all ASN certified vendors to facilitate the receiving and invoice payment process.
When the ASN vendor shipment arrives, in MMS Inventory Management:
- Scan or type each SSCC bar code label.
- Click Accept Carton.
- Repeat scanning and Accept Carton process until all boxes in the ASN shipment(s) is processed.
- Finalize the session.
Once the session is finalized, all merchandise in the cartons is added to your inventory on-hand. Then complete all receiving steps outside of MMS and move the merchandise onto the sales floor.
See the Receive ASN Shipment topic for additional details.
See ASN Vendors for a current listing.
