LogistiVIEW’s award-winning and patent-pending software platform is enabling a new collaboration between worker and technology across Industry 4.0. The platform caught the attention of leading analyst firm Gartner, who recently mentioned LogistiVIEW in two notable reports.
These reports illustrate how LogistiVIEW’s software connects people, process, and data to optimize the way work is performed for enhanced productivity and efficiency across the supply chain industry.
In “Predicts 2019: Future of Supply Chain Operations” (Nov 2018) Gartner looks into core technology trends affecting supply chain and distribution leaders, and investments needed to stay competitive. Gartner emphasizes the critical role that Augmented Reality (AR) will play in unlocking new productivity gains over the next few years, and names LogistiVIEW as a player in this market. The report goes on to discuss how LogistiVIEW’s virtual pick-to-cart solutions are delivering tangible savings and ROI by removing the need for expensive installations and replacing inefficient processes across the industry.
“Historically, in pick to cart, there was the physical cart and then paper, a separate mobile device like a tablet or lights installed on the cart would highlight what needed to be picked and put where on the cart. Indeed this worked, but paper was inefficient, the tablets were often inconvenient to reference, and the lights were expensive to install and maintain. Now, a virtual rendering of the cart can be displayed in the user’s field of vision with where to put items highlighted visually. This enhances productivity, reduces maintenance costs and allows for more flexibility, such as being able to dynamically define the cart at the point of use. This will take AR down a more valuable path, which will drive growth in adoption.”
Gartner also named LogistiVIEW one of three “Cool Vendors in Mobile and Wireless” (May 2018). The report evaluates interesting, new, and innovative vendors in the mobile and wireless market, and focuses on how companies are investing in their frontline workforces to fuel productivity.
The article notes the importance of image processing and recognition technologies - a core component of LogistiVIEW’s software - in delivering productivity improvements. The article also emphasizes how companies are increasingly looking to equip their frontline workforce with information and data through wearable devices - a key capability delivered by the LogistiVIEW platform.
Gartner recommends that infrastructure and operations leaders responsible for mobile, endpoint and wearable strategies:
“The pace of innovation in devices and use cases for knowledge workers has declined, and is now at best incremental. Thus, organizations and vendors are addressing new groups of employees, including frontline workers, who have previously been underserved by technology initiatives. Technologies such as wearable devices can drive a more direct impact on the day-to-day duties of these workers, making up for the potential higher cost of the solutions. Many innovations are fueled by image recognition/processing, typically taking place locally on a mobile device, using the input from a smartphone camera or from the camera of a wearable device such as smartglasses.
The process improvement lies in then overlaying relevant, actionable, information for the frontline worker, documenting what's happening, reducing transaction time and decreasing errors in the process.”
