Order Sorting Methods

Overview

When starting the sorting process in Skublox, you have the freedom to choose the best sorting method for your fulfillment team. Sorting orders is typically done with the help of a mobile scanner or a smartphone equipped with a scanner ring. In addition to that, sorting multiple units at once and keying in product barcodes are also supported methods.

You can:

  • Sort orders via a mobile scanner
  • Sort orders via phone camera
  • Sort orders via smartphone and scanner ring
  • Sort multiple units
  • Key in product barcodes
You must be logged in, select a sorting wall, and choose to sort either with a picklist or without a picklist.

Sort products via mobile scanner

Before using mobile scanners for order sorting, you must configure your devices properly. Follow the instructions for the Skublox Sorter App.

The following workflow is recommended as the most efficient:

  1. Scan the product barcode with your mobile scanner. The assigned slot will light up with your unique color.
  2. Place the product into the assigned slot.
  3. Scan the barcode of the slot.

Sort products via phone camera

If you download the Skublox Sorter App on a smartphone, running either Android or iOS, you can use the device camera to scan barcodes. Supported barcode formats for this feature are UPC-A, EAN, ITF, QR, PDF417, and Aztec.

If you do not see this option, update your Sorter App to the latest version.


Sort products via smartphone and scanner ring

Certain scanner rings do not read QR codes (2D codes), so be sure that your scanner rings support this function!
You must connect your smartphone and scanner ring via Bluetooth. Follow the instructions provided by the scanner ring manufacturer.
  1. Scan the product barcode with your scanner ring. The assigned slot will light up with your unique color.
  2. Place the product into the assigned slot.
  3. Scan the barcode of the slot.

Sort multiple products

To enable this feature, configure your Preferences in the Skublox Controller app.

Some orders will have multiple units of a product. To sort multiple units of the same product with a single scan, follow these steps:

  1. Scan the product. Skublox will display the total number of units required for this product.
  2. Tap the number of units to sort all of them. Alternatively, use + and to adjust the quantity to sort.
  3. Scan the barcode of the slot.

Key in product barcodes

  1. Select a Skublox Wall.
  2. Choose to sort with or without a picklist.
  3. Select one of the available options:
    1. Tap the pencil icon to key in a specific product barcode directly. When using a smartphone and scanner ring, tap the Barcode field.
    2. Tap the 🗲 icon to receive product suggestions and choose the product you want to sort. Select Key in and manually enter the barcode of the product.

  4. (Optional) Enter your PIN code.
    A PIN code may be required if pre-configured. Learn more about PIN codes here.
  5. The assigned slot will light up with your unique color.
  6. Place the product into the assigned slot and scan the slot’s barcode to confirm the sort.
