Offering a user experience that leverages Zebra’s Android-based mobile computers and optional acces-sories like the new enterprise-class HD4000 head-mounted display, Zebra FulfillmentEdge trans-forms existing warehouse management systems (WMS) by enabling real-time dynamic workflows and routing mobile workers for picking, packing and put-away without costly and risky upgrades or backend changes.
Zebra also introduced the new single-finger RS5100 wireless ring scanner, providing mobile workers with an ultra-light hands-free scanning option.
FulfillmentEdge integrates existing real-time WMS data with real-time location information, providing visibility into the location of workers, inventory and material handling assets. Now, one worker can sim-ultaneously pick multiple orders, enabling businesses to dramatically increase order fulfillment times and boost worker productivity up to 24%.
“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, SVP of enter-prise mobile computing, Zebra Technologies. “Zebra’s intuitive FulfillmentEdge software and optional HD4000 head-mounted display provide mobile workers with clear, step-by-step instructions that re-duce training time by 90% to allow near-instant onboarding while decision-makers benefit from the re-al-time insights and analytics that enable better data-driven decisions.”
Zebra’s 2024 Warehousing Vision Study also found that 62 percent of companies say they plan to add or upgrade to wearable computers, such as smartwatches, smart glasses or hip-mounted devices. Zeb-ra’s first enterprise-class, head-mounted display is lightweight for hands-free and heads-up, directed-action workflows.
