Dolphin 75e Wearable: Honeywell’s Hands-Free Solution

Posted June 27, 2018

75e-wearableHoneywell survey stated that on average companies lose over $400,000 every year in picking errors. In order to combat these errors and help improve accuracy and efficiency companies are looking more towards wearable technology.

Select warehouses and distribution centers are the perfect example to look at as they are seeing wearable mobile computers revolutionize the industry. Providing increased flexibility, operational improvement, improved productivity, and significant cost savings. With wearable computers users will be free from the constraints of using one hand to carry a scanner or mobile computer; instead users will have the flexibility to work hands-free while still accessing the data they need to complete the tasks at hand. A hands-free user will be able to accelerate picking, packing, and shipping operations.

Honeywell’s rugged Dolphin 75e Wearable has a large display with flexible touchscreen keypads. The accessories provide increased comfort and improved hygiene over conventional wearables. Combine it with the 8620 Ring scanner to get a truly hands-free experience that is guaranteed to help improve productivity in the workplace. With these lightweight and compact computers, users will have a wide range of motion. This allows users to complete tasks in less time without losing the valuable accuracy that is needed.

Dolphin 75e Wearable Features:

  • Multi OS: Flexible support and migration of Windows Embedded 8.1 Handheld or Android 4.4 KitKat, seamlessly upgrade later as business needs grow to Windows 10 or Android 5.0L
  • 4.3 in large clear display with capacitive touchscreen provides outstanding readability and plenty of space for data and keypads.
  • Increase productivity and throughput with an ergonomic ring scanner based on an industry-grade imager that provides high-performance scanning of linear and 2D barcodes.
  • The watchband style armband improves comfort and eliminates hygiene concerns.
  • The rubber watchband straps are comfortable, reduce sliding or rotating on the arm and don’t absorb perspiration.

Automating Transportation and Logistics

Posted July 14, 2015

Modern_warehouse_with_pallet_rack_storage_systemLogistics accuracy and timing is critical to customers. If you’re a business and deliver the wrong item or fail to deliver it on-time then you have likely lost that customer’s business. To achieve a right first-time delivery we recommend automating your collection and delivery processes to incorporate mobile computers, wearable computers and other barcode equipment, along with our software solutions. Check out some logistics areas that can be automated to provide a more accurate and quicker process that ensures a better customer experience.

  • Sortation and Vehicle Loading – Sorting and loading the right packages is critical for delivery accuracy. Any failed delivery or return results in a cost to the business. With our wearable mobile computers and voice-based software, you can more quickly and easily sort and load packages for first-time accurate delivery. This technology is an evolution from the traditional conveyor system.
  • Dispatch – Hundreds of thousands of dollars are lost each year on fuel costs that are a result of ineffective routes and delivery scheduling. Our route planning solution can provide your business with continuously optimal reliable routes while using fewer trucks, miles and drivers. It also enables real-time appointment scheduling in order to keep fleet operations productive and profitable while increasing customer satisfaction.
  • Delivery and Collection – Confirmation and proof of delivery is the final element of item tracking. However, many times package deliveries cannot be confirmed due to lost paperwork. Using a mobile computer and point of delivery software allows a driver to capture a signature and confirm the proof of delivery. Additionally, many mobile computers come equipped with GPS to where drivers are at all times and if they arrived at said location.
  • Driver De-brief and Vehicle Checks – Missing paperwork, illegible handwriting and sorting through dozens of paperwork can make collecting manual data from drivers a nightmare. With our technology, we have the ability to transform paper documents into an automated form that is accessible through a mobile computer. Additionally, having a telematics system in each vehicle allows for vehicle information to be digitally synched and tracked. Not only does it reduce the need for somebody to transfer manual data into a computer but it also dramatically reduces the amount of time a driver needs at the end of his day for his de-brief.
