Wearable Mobile Computers: A Hands-Free Advantage

Posted May 21, 2018

wearables-blogWarehouses and Distribution centers 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 around 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.

A Honeywell survey stated that on average companies lose over $400,000 every year in picking errors. 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.

There are a variety of options when it comes to wearable mobile computers. Two of the industries leaders, Honeywell and Zebra, have options that could help turn around warehouse and distribution centers.

Honeywell’s rugged Dolphin 75-e 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.

Zebra’s WT6000 Wearable Computer fits comfortably on any size arm and with a large touchscreen that provides more real estate to display intuitive graphical Android applications. Pair it with the RS6000 Bluetooth ring scanner and users will have the technology to take their productivity level up a notch.
