This holiday season, the rapid growth between Thanksgiving Day and Cyber Monday will help e-commerce merchants attain the $150 billion sales level two weeks earlier this season than just two years ago, in 2017. Every day from November 1 through December 21 will exceed $1.5 billion in e-commerce sales. It is June 2019; there is still time for managers of warehouses, distribution centers (DCs), and 3PLs (third party logistics) firms to ensure this season workers will be faster, safer, and more accurate thanks to workforce Augmented Reality (AR).

WMS (Warehouse Management Systems) solutions are good at managing information, but not truly intuitive for the floor worker. This is primarily because lines of text are not the best way to tell someone how to do work; humans respond best to visual instructions. For that reason, most companies discuss on-boarding and training in terms of days, or worse yet, weeks.

Warehouse workers can be faster, safer, and more accurate this holiday season. LogistiVIEW’s “Visual Input Enabled Wearable” (VIEW) technology improves workforce productivity and job satisfaction by making processes hands free and eyes focused. Intuitive voice and visual instructions make work easy and training rapid. These benefits can all be accomplished in time for the 2019 holiday season thanks to LogistiVIEW’s Connected Worker Platform.
3PL will experiment with supply chain tech like mobile robots, autonomous vehicles, smart glasses, WMS software. Third party logistics provider (3PL) Kenco Logistics will expand its innovation lab into a dedicated warehouse facility where researchers can test novel fulfillment approaches ranging from drones and robots to augmented reality and the internet of things (IoT), the firm said Tuesday.
Collaboration reinvents warehouse automation, delivering complex human-robotic interaction through Augmented Reality (AR), Artificial Intelligence (AI), and Computer Vision. LogistiVIEW, a leader in AR connected workforce technology, today announced its partnership with Fetch Robotics.
