Bin-to-Light

Overview

The Skublox Integration with Skustack allows you to use the Bin-to-Light order-sorting method and empowers warehouse workers to pick order items while simultaneously sorting them onto a mobile cart, all while validating every action through the Skustack application

The process is simple – select a picklist to work on, find and scan the required product, and the corresponding location on the cart rack will light up guiding you to the right sorting spot. Once all order items are picked and sorted correctly, the slot light turns green and the order is ready to be packed.

This feature also allows multiple users to simultaneously connect to the same wall and work on the same picklist.

To use the Bin-to-Light process, your warehouse has to be bin-enabled
