Order Sorting workflows

Overview

Skublox’s Put-to-Light and Bin-to-Light workflows are two different order sorting methods that can be used in your day-to-day sorting operations. While both processes are designed to help improve order sorting efficiency, they have distinct characteristics and applications. 


Choose a Sorting workflow

To ensure proper order sorting, you must select a sorting workflow for each new wall. To choose a workflow:

  1. Create a new sorting wall from either the Skublox Controller or Skublox Hub. You will be prompted to select a sorting workflow.
  2. Click on one of the sorting workflows as shown below:
    • Put-to-Light is the primary method used in order sorting processes, where items are brought to a specific location after being picked and sorted into individual customer orders on a stationary Skublox wall. Learn more about Skublox’s Put-to-Light feature here.
    • Bin-to-Light, on the other hand, is used during the order-picking process and is performed through the Skustack application. It enables warehouse workers to pick items for orders while simultaneously sorting them onto a mobile cart. Note that to use this feature, your warehouse has to be bin-enabled.
