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:
- Create a new sorting wall from either the Skublox Controller or Skublox Hub. You will be prompted to select a sorting workflow.
- 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.
