Humans get tired. Warehouse personnel more so, because of all the picking and scanning and walking around the facility. Hence, if a warehouse is striving to increase its efficiency, it becomes imperative to ensure that the warehouse personnel is either i) expending less effort, or ii) getting more work done. 

One of the most important and time-consuming activities performed by a warehouse agent is scanning. Agents must scan bins, parcels, destination tables, packing tables, packaging material, among multiple other locations and items, to ensure that the correct item reaches the intended location. ProGlove is one of the biggest companies in the warehouse automation space that is working towards making scanning as intuitive and efficient as possible.

ProGlove’s MARK line-up of handsfree warehouse wearable scanners empowers personnel to perform scanning operations without using their hands. With its innovative back-of-the-hand placement, ProGlove scanners allow warehouse personnel to perform activities with a high level of dexterity and accuracy. 

Hopstack’s integrated solution for ProGlove wearable devices offers warehouse managers the option to integrate their scanners and warehouse systems into one cohesive and automated system. This helps in unlocking efficiencies, streamlining processes, and reducing worker fatigue and injuries.

Coherent Integration with Platform

The ProGlove companion app integrates seamlessly with the Hopstack platform through the WebSockets API, which means that all the data collected by the scanner is securely transferred to the ProGlove servers and then handed over to the Hopstack platform. This ensures that all scanned data is transferred securely and seamlessly to the Hopstack platform. Additionally, the integration also allows warehouse managers to track the device status, health, battery life, and analyze workflows. Finally, the ProGlove integration makes it possible for warehouse managers to track efficiency metrics like average scanning time, fulfillment time, average picking time, and so on, ensuring that every last bit of efficiency that can be achieved, is achieved.
