Rapidly replacing wired or wireless handheld and ring scanners
The ProGlove MARK family of products feature the world’s smallest and lightest set of barcodes scanners. These wearable devices come with a unique formfactor and remove the need for superfluous process steps. Organizations can save up to 50 percent of their total scanning time. In addition, MARK can cut typical picking errors by up to 33 percent. MARK’s rugged design is built for demanding environments in production and logistics. Operators remain hands free and with full dexterity to manage other tasks. Therefore, MARK rapidly replaces wired or wireless handheld and ring scanners all over the world. The MARK family of products is a perfect fit for static, semi-static, and dynamic workstations. Use cases include assembly, material handling, quality control, inbound and outbound, picking and material transport.
“We are eager to help organizations streamline processes from the warehouse to the customer’s door,” said Mike Smola, VP of Sales and Strategic Mobility Team at Panasonic. “This integrated solution supports businesses in their quest to achieve greater efficiency of their entire logistics operations. Intelligent parcel tracking, enhanced security, superior customer service and better business-wide communications – they’re all achievable with this technology.”
