Fact is, today’s warehouses and logistic centers desperately need speed and efficiency to perform and compete at a competitive level.
So, what can negatively impact speed in the era of pick/pack/ship lightning turnarounds? Many factors can dramatically influence (and often degrade) the human and technological components of your operation.
Moreover, a worker doesn’t need an injury to become a drag on operations. Current scanning systems can often slow performance and negatively impact the workforce due to ongoing and nagging usage and ergonomic difficulties.
One outcome is abundantly clear when viewed through warehouse performance at all levels: the need for better, faster, accurate, safe scanning of warehouse inventory. That day has arrived …
Fast, Accurate, and Safe Wearable Scanning is Job One (As well as Jobs, Two, Three, and Four)
Better technology is essential for efficient operation, order fulfillment, and inventory management.
Warehouse operations and logistic centers have three key problem areas when it comes to their current scanning needs:
- Difficulty scanning: current wearables are not up for the job; scanners often break, causing downtime and being out of service when they are needed most.
- Scanning distance: challenges often exist when reading racks, product labels, and pick tickets from the vantage point of fork trucks.
- Barcode reading issues: low quality, damaged barcode readings require extra time a warehouse worker simply doesn’t have (and a warehouse operation can’t afford.)
Fortunately, the solution is literally right at your fingertips …
The Honeywell 8675i Wearable Scanner is the Answer
Workers will appreciate the superior ergonomics and smaller footprint. Warehouse management will understand how that translates into productivity. After all, Honeywell is no stranger to wearable scanner technology. There’s a 15-year foundation of proven wearable tech at work here.
Advanced Technology Leads The Way. Again.
The Honeywell 8675i Wearable Scanner is outfitted with two significant technology advances. Here’s a quick overview of each:
In the past, handheld and some ring scanners did a decent job reading codes of near and mid-range items. But faraway inventory, especially those in stacked bins and shelves, was problematic.
Now, with FlexRange™ technology, items near and far can be scanned quickly and precisely. Smooth, fast reading from near to far (30 ft. in the air) is now not only possible but everyday doable. The 8675i enables wearable scanning in applications and environments that would have previously required a handheld device.
In short, this equips the scanner to perform in demanding conditions. How demanding? Let us count the ways: harsh, cold environments. Explosive conditions. And more.
The Perfect Fit in More Ways Than One.
Naturally, the 8675i Wearable Scanner fits the needs of warehouse operations today and tomorrow. The fit also extends to the workforce, leading to faster and more thorough adoption across the enterprise.
The scanner has a flexible wearing configuration with a fast, toolless changeover from ring to glove. The strap glove secures 8675i on the back of the hand for optimal dexterity, ergonomics, and user comfort.
Its durable material/design yields a long lifespan and it consists of non-absorbent materials for easy cleaning.
Both left and right-hand versions are compatible with bar hand or conventional glove for comfort and user safety. The unit is available in one size and is highly adjustable at index finger and wrist so each worker can perform at their best.
