How logistics operations work with Skylight

1

Information about the item to pick such as the location, quantity, and picture are displayed within the user's line-of-sight on the smart glasses display.
2

Highlighted fields show the next required action (ex. scan the barcode on the tote). Team members can scan items with the built-in camera or a Bluetooth accessory.
3

Voice commands can be utilized for inputting quantities and resolving exceptions.

Get Real-time Insights

Skylight has powerful integration hooks for work process insights and role-based views.

For warehouse operators, your teams can visualize where picks are happening in the store, see trending pick rates, and where inventory is out of stock.

And like every application in Skylight, these views can run in glasses, or on your iOS or Android phones.
