SKULabs

Cloud-based inventory management and order fulfillment

About SKULabs

SKULabs is a web-based multi-channel inventory and order management system, which offers tools for order picking, barcoding, multi-carrier shipping, purchasing, receiving, and more. Native mobile apps for Android and iOS devices enable users to manage and pick orders, scan barcodes, print shipping labels, and track performance on-the-go.

SKULabs offers users a unified, multi-channel order list, removing the need to manage orders from different channels in different places. Orders can be searched for by customer or by product, and organized using custom color-coded fulfillment statuses and tags. Summaries for open orders can be viewed and used to create pick lists or verify that sufficient stock is available. Orders can then be picked using printed pick lists, or barcode scanning to reduce errors. Multiple orders can also be picked, packed, and shipped in batches, with automatic sorting of like orders into batches. SKULabs guides users between items based on their physical locations, selecting the nearest neighbour for the next pick, to reduce time spent walking back and forth between locations.

SKULabs supports order shipping through multiple providers, with users able to print shipping labels for FedEx, USPS, and more. Addresses can be validated before shipping using the same validation service as each shipping carrier. Users can also set up defaults for common shipping methods, insurance preferences, and package types.


Key benefits of SKULabs

  • Stock levels for all products can be viewed at once, across multiple channels, with the ability to track inventory across warehouses, and sync changes to all sales channels.

  • Barcode-based picking enables users to check picking accuracy as they fulfil orders, paper picking lists can be printed, or mobile devices can be used.

  • Batches of orders can be picked, packed, and shipped at the same time, with automatic grouping of new orders into batches and simultaneous printing of all shipping labels.

  • Multiple shipment providers can be used, with memorized settings and automation rules for each provider.

  • Purchase orders can be created and sent to all distributors, with the ability to scan incoming goods for addition into inventory.

    Pays for its self

    Reviewed on 2019/11/26

    Pros

    No more staff picking errors. The amount of $ this software saves is amazing. No more having to pay for customer return postage for incorrect item sent. Customers are happier. We are happier. The software pays for its self if you consider its zero error tollarance and what would otherwise have to be spent on returns.

    Cons

    It doesn't connect to vend the pos software we use or tower systems pos software. We would like it to have better functionaluty and connectivity here for inventory control.

    I use Skulabs daily and it's a pleasure to use. We all wish for more features but what skulabs does it does well. From inventory management, to order processing and purchasing, it gets me to where I need to be and it does it well.
    I cannot imagine not using it now.
    I can't speak highly enough of the team who support me, they are fabulous and go out of their way to help me, I feel like we're all part of the same team.
    They're a fabulous company to work with and I am delighted to recommend them.

    Pros

    Amazing, friendly support who go out of their way to help me and my individual needs. They really care.
    Tight integration with Bigcommerce that never fails.
    Reliable platform and uptime.
    Easy order processing.
    Great inventory management.
    A pleasure to use.

    Cons

    While it mostly works, I continue to have printing issues sometimes.

    Purchase orders could do with some attention.

    The order page could be nicer on the eye.
    It could also contain a lot more useful data that I need when fulfilling orders such as customer history which you have to go searching for in menus. There's plenty of room for it on the actual order page. Be nice if you could customise the UI, lots of things on the order screen and product pages that I never need to see or don't use.

    Reports could be better, for example, there's no info on best-selling kits, only the individual parts.

    I'd like to see the profit and margin data on the product page.

    There's good data in the customer history so I'd like to see more options to use that for marketing.

    Amazon acquired Veeqo and changed their pricing model forcing me out of their platform. Absolutely stupidity but that's Amazon for you. I liked Veeqo and it has a few features I miss but I wouldn't go back, I prefer Skulabs now.

    Do not use this product

    Reviewed on 2017/07/11

    Pros

    The team behind SKULabs are nice (and always willing to take phone calls or chat via email), but unfortunately the product is too buggy and half built to serve any purpose. This product talks way more game than it delivers.

    Cons

    The landing page makes it seem like they have a full suite of functionality. In reality, they *some* functionality related to what they promise, but it's often half baked and buggy. The docs offer no guidance on how to use some features. It'd be worth its price if it actually did what they say they do on their website.

    SKULabs gives you the ERP features you need to grow, at a fraction of the cost

    SKULabs from the pre-planning to onboarding to ongoing support is out of this world, couldn't have asked for a better partner!

    Pros

    Overall ease of use - we came from StitchLabs when it was killed-off; SKULabs was just outside of our desired budget, but it delivers ERP grade software at a fraction of the cost.
    We have utilised SKULabs features to grow our business by over 45% in a single year!
    Before, I was probably say I was "flying blind" - now we use Insights and Sales Velocity daily and totally changed how we operate our business.

    Cons

    Nothing yet. It is extremely intuitive, easy to use and if you get stuck the support team are super quick to respond.

    Skulabs solved the problem of me paying too much for my previous inventory control program. It, for the most part, does what I wanted it to do.

    Pros

    It connects to lots of marketplaces. Once you understand how the software works, it works pretty well about 90-95 percent of the time. I have found it was a software written by software engineers (of course) that probably have never run a store before. But over, it is okay. Have not found a better alternative yet

    Cons

    The product search is horrible. It is an exact word search. If you don't put it in exactly, you won't find your product. I only have a few hundred products. I can't imagine what it would be like if you had thousands. There are lots of little things about this software that if you don't get right then it won't work at all. It is a must to pay them to set it up since it is most certainly not a plug and play type situation. So I compared this one to my last one like this: My last inventory control solution was like a teenager. You have to keep you eye on them since stupid things can happen, but for the most part they do okay just leaving them alone and letting them do their thing. Skulabs is like an infant child: You have to watch it constantly as problems will popup consistently and you have to solve them or else bad things can happen.

    Response from SKULabs

    Thanks for your candid feedback. Every solution has its pain points, but we'll continue working to reduce ours as much as humanly possible.
