Zebra Technologies Corporation recently announced new warehouse offerings designed to optimize workflows, maximize productivity in the warehouse and improve employee onboarding. Offering a modern user experience that leverages Zebra’s Android-based mobile computers, Zebra FulFillmentEdge transforms existing warehouse management systems by enabling real-time dynamic workflows and routing mobile workers for picking, packing and put-away. Zebra also introduced the new single-finger RS5100 wireless ring scanner, providing mobile workers with a hands-free scanning option for industrial environments.
FulfillmentEdge integrates existing real-time WMS data with real-time location information, providing visibility into the location of workers, inventory and material handling assets. The solution analyzes the information and creates real-time workflows delivered as electronic tasks that can contain visual directions to the next pick location and photos of the item to ensure picking accuracy.
“The on-demand economy is placing pressure on warehouse operations to quickly fulfill more orders than ever before, requiring a highly productive and efficient workforce,” said Joe White, Senior Vice President of Enterprise Mobile Computing at Zebra Technologies. “Zebra’s intuitive FulfillmentEdge software and optional HD4000 head-mounted display provide mobile workers with clear, step-by-step instructions that reduce training time by 90 percent to allow near-instant onboarding while decision makers benefit from the real-time insights and analytics that enable better data-driven decisions.”
Zebra also announced the rugged, single-finger RS5100 Bluetooth ring scanner to help free up workers’ hands for inventory management, picking, packing and sorting applications in industrial environments. Zebra’s ring scanner offers a long battery life and features a single-sided or double-trigger to enable workers to use gloves or bare hands. It also supports NFC tap-to-pair with most Zebra enterprise-class Bluetooth-enabled mobile devices and offers high-performance 1D/2D omnidirectional scanning to maximize worker productivity.
