ProGlove, the leader in ergonomic wearables for industry, partners with Ivanti Wavelink, a global leader 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 leading 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. The 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. The company’s solutions have been mission-critical in helping companies leverage modern technology on rugged mobile scanners that run on Android, iOS and Windows 10 Operating Systems.
ProGlove’s wearable barcode scanners are the lightest and fastest in the market. In combination with ProGlove’s recently released Insight platform they provide valuable insights that secure critical benefits for operational leaders while supplying frontline workers not only with the tools they need, but the tools they love.
Bundle To Deliver Everywhere Workplace With Focus On Human Worker
“ProGlove’s MARK Display is a giant leap forward in barcode scanning,” said Simon Storey, Global VP of Strategic Alliances, Ivanti Wavelink. “Their devices come with a unique formfactor that is tailored to meet the needs of warehouse shopfloor workers superbly. The cost, risk and time associated with writing new mobile applications to keep up with modern mobile operating systems just isn’t feasible. We make it easy for their customers to deploy next-generation mobility, minimising the risks and dependence on IT resources.”
“Ivanti’s Velocity set of solutions is a mission critical engine to boost the digitisation of the shop floor,” emphasised Charlie Grieco, Chief Revenue Officer at ProGlove. “While many organisations recognise the need for more flexibility and adaptability, they cannot just shake off the legacy systems they have in place. Ivanti resolves this issue so that businesses can change gears and accelerate to warp speed in no time. Our combined solution delivers immediate benefits by allowing for a decentralised approach to data handling. This results in more efficiency, better quality while putting a focus on the human worker.”
