Ivanti Wavelink has teamed with Procensis, a leading mobility and network design solutions provider, to bring to market a new bundled solution for modernizing warehouse picking. The new solution, called the Wearable Picking Bundle, combines Ivanti Velocity, powered by Wavelink, with ProGlove’s MARK display wearable scanner and the Samsung Galaxy XCover Pro, a sleek and durable enterprise-ready smartphone, to increase productivity, accuracy and efficiency in modern warehouses.
“The healthcare and economic crisis brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic is driving many warehousing and distribution facilities to re-think their processes as they work to align with state and federal mandates concerning worker health and safety,” said Brandon Black, vice president and general manager, Ivanti Supply Chain Business Unit. “Worker performance and accuracy still remain top priorities as well. We are pleased to be teaming with Procensis, ProGlove and Samsung, to bring a solution to market which will enable these organizations to arm their workers with the best technology for protecting their health and safety, while ensuring optimal productivity.”
Ed Kennedy, President, Procensis added, “Workers will be able to reduce trips to and from pallets or carts, which will result in improved productivity, safety and improved accuracy. In partnering with Ivanti, ProGlove and Samsung, we are able to get it into the hands of workers more rapidly as the solution can be deployed remotely in as little as five days.”
Modern technologies align to support essential workers during COVID-19
The new Wearable Picking Bundle includes the following solutions:
- Ivanti Velocity. Designed to speed modernization, Ivanti Velocity enables warehousing and supply chain organizations to rapidly optimize the user experience when moving existing telnet and web apps to Android.
- ProGlove MARK Display wearable scanner. The MARK Display is the most compact wearable scanner that also delivers essential information directly to the worker. Its intuitive high contrast, non-reflective display brings process details to the back of workers’ hands for a real-time, hands-free, data-first approach; providing flexibility and independence for picking, sorting, and sequencing processes.
- Samsung Galaxy XCover Pro. Samsung Galaxy XCover Pro re-imagines the enterprise-ready smartphone, delivering a rugged, yet stylish device that frontline workers can use to perform multiple tasks on a single device. Built for the future of work, it includes features like programmable Push-to-Talk buttons for team collaboration, mPOS readiness for payment processing, and a touchscreen that is optimized to work in most conditions—even with gloves. Samsung Knox delivers device security from hardware to software layers, while also providing ability to customize and configure for enterprise needs.
“The Galaxy XCover Pro was born out of Samsung’s ongoing commitment to the B2B market,” said Taher Behbehani, general manager and head of mobile B2B, Samsung Electronics America. “The current public health pandemic has dramatically accelerated digital transformation around the globe, making it imperative that we empower our digitally-enabled workforces with innovative solutions that balance personal safety with productivity goals. We are excited to be a part of this bundled solution that will give workers the freedom to maintain peak performance while protecting their health and safety.”
