Understanding Bin Cycle Count
You may want to compare quantities in warehouse bins against what Sellercloud has recorded. Skustack’s Bin Cycle Count feature helps you to scan bins and then run audit reports to determine count discrepancies.
This can be done by having one employee do the inventory audits in the warehouse, which will create a report of what you used to have versus what you are resetting the inventory to, and the discrepancy(called the Delta). Another employee would go through the audit report, either in Sellercloud or in Skustack, and commit the changes to the database.
Bin inventory can be automatically adjusted based on scanned counts.
Accessing Bin Cycle Count
- Log into Skustack in a bin-enabled warehouse.
- Navigate to the Bin Tab and then scroll to the Bin Cycle Count card.
- Click the magnifying glass to display the Cycle Count page.
- The Bin Cycle Count page has four options explained below.
Understanding cycle count modes
|Start new bin count
Purpose: Allows the counting of a warehouse bin to reconcile differences between what is actually in the bin versus what Sellercloud shows as total bin quantity.
Bin Cycle Count should be completed to Generate Audit Report to ensure the saving of count information.
Purpose: Displays the Product ID, the Seller System value, the Scanned value, and the Delta (+/- between system and scanned) for a selected audit.
|Open Existing Audit
Purpose: Displays Audits for generated audits.
|Suggest bin to count
Purpose: Displays which warehouse bin(s) to count.
Skustack’s Suggest bin to count first displays bin names based on bins with more than 1000 movements, followed by bin names counted furthest from the date the query is run.
Example: Bins counted 6 months ago would be displayed above bins counted 3 months ago, etc.
