Wearables specialist ProGlove has partnered with Ivanti Wavelink, a leading global company in supply chain mobility solutions, to help organisations turn their warehouse management legacy systems into more modern, state-of-the-art technology.
Through this partnership, businesses can benefit from an effortless transformation process that can be integrated right out of the box and hooks up ProGlove’s wearable MARK Display barcode scanners with warehouse management or backend systems by means of Ivanti’s Velocity solutions. The first organisations to profit from this partnership include Hermes Fulfilment, a member of the Otto Group. Hermes Fulfilment handles the entire shipping process including customer orders, warehousing and returns for Otto Group’s retail companies.
The combined solution allows for easy integration of Telnet and browser-based applications to communicate and deliver crucial information to and from workers’ rugged mobile computers and wearable devices. Ivanti Velocity platform helps companies leverage modern technology in the warehouse and across the supply chain to improve accuracy and efficiency without modifying or replacing legacy backend systems, while maintaining and improving workers’ productivity. This helps reduce picking errors, decrease down-time and increase productivity. The bundle therefore accelerates data capturing while having users benefit from advanced control of device-specific barcode scanning parameters. The frontline workers thus do not need additional training as they continue to work with the tools they are familiar with.
The project at Hermes Fulfilment includes some 150 MARK Display devices and Ivanti Velocity Software at three different locations. It is a picking use case that helps workers lift heavy devices such as refrigerators, which makes a hands-free approach mandatory.
Ivanti Wavelink, the supply chain business unit of Ivanti, combines technologies and mobile devices uniquely suited for today’s high-velocity e-commerce environment – and supports the heightened health and safety needs of essential warehouse workers.
