The contract logistics pioneer Fiege is also setting new standards in the field of pick-byvision: The company, which already uses the Picavi solution, has now ordered 40 more pairs of smart glasses for its site in Worms. In addition, the Fiege branch in Großbeeren will now also be equipped with the smart glasses. Fiege has purchased more than a dozen from Picavi for its logistics center near Berlin. Picavi sees these projects as milestones in the company’s development.
Picavi’s Chief Sales Officer Carsten Funke puts spotlight on the latest developments:
“The new order for the warehouse in Großbeeren and the tripling of the number of glasses for the branch in Worms represent a huge step for our company,” he says. “There’s nothing better than when a satisfied customer backs up or expands the pick-byvision solution to other locations. It is a clear signal that our product is working well in everyday life because it optimizes logistics processes.”
Fiege began to pick products such as power or garden tools with smart glasses for local customers in Worms almost a year and a half ago. Twenty pairs of Picavi smart glasses were recently in use there.
“The efficiency gains achieved with the pick-by-vision solution have convinced us. For this reason, we are now equipping even more warehouse workers with smart glasses,” Michael Suden, Managing Director of Fiege Industry Logistics in Worms commented on the purchase of 40 more glasses.
The hands-free approach for order picking is also used in the Fiege branch in Großbeeren. “By using smart glasses, we want to reduce picking times and error rates through the visual guidance of warehouse staff,” says Martin Schacht, Branch Manager at Fiege in Großbeeren. “After the good experiences our colleagues in Worms had, we consider these goals to be realistic. We are pleased that smart glasses are becoming the second location in the Fiege world.”
“Because of the turnkey solution that we can offer, the integration phases are shortlived and so our customers can replace their old systems quickly. The training period needed for the workers is also very short due to the clear and always comprehensible display,” emphasizes Johanna Bellenberg, Director of Marketing and Communications at Picavi, who now has more than 50 successful pick-by-vision projects to her credit.
About Picavi GmbH Picavi GmbH is an award-winning and well-recognised full-service provider with a 100 percent dedication of its intralogistics and wearable expertise to Pick-by-Vision solutions. By wearing smart glasses, a strict visual guidance through the complete picking process enables workers to maximize their productivity and minimize errors while working hands-free. Picavi is already being used by numerous logistics experts from a variety of sectors.
The German company is deeply rooted in the IT industry and in intralogistics. Picavi is an official Glass Partner, a Vuzix VIP Partner and connected to many other wearable providers, so the system works independently from the smart glass hardware. Clients worldwide can rely on a network of technology and sales partners such as DSA Systems in Northern America and WRH Global Australia for the Oceania region.
CEO Dirk Franke has over two decades of experience in the development and sale of software systems for paperless order picking. Alexander Voss, professor of applied informatics in Aachen, supports strategic product development and software quality assurance at Picavi as a consulting shareholder. A wide network of service, integration, technology and sales partners provides additional expertise.
Thanks to its practicality, the pick-by-vision solution was also awarded the IT Innovation Prize in the industry & logistics category by the Initiative Mittelstand association in 2016. In the same year, the IT and logistics specialist was one of three companies to be awarded the “Hidden Champion” prize in the “Vision” category by German news broadcaster n-tv.
