ProGlove´s Solution for Retail and eCommerce

Rewe Group selected ProGlove’s smart wearables for its picking process to increase quality, efficiency and ergonomics. ProGlove’s unique barcode scanning technology enabled the company to not only capture product information, but also the product location, and synchronize all data with with the picking list.

Retail has undergone a massive shift, accentuated by the Covid-19 pandemic, towards e-commerce. Managing this shift in demand and the consumer expectations around delivery timelines means every second counts when picking, packing, and fulfilling orders. Static workstations and legacy hardware impede productivity and result in processes that can’t keep up to the rapid fluctuations in consumer demand.

SUBSTANTIAL RESULT: By upgrading to a mobile-first strategy and enabling workers with untethered wearable solutions from ProGlove, retailers are realizing efficiency gains and error reduction across their operations. By making their existing workforce more efficient, they can spend less time hiring more personnel and more time enabling the staff they already have.

ProGlove’s unique wearable solution with its flexible integration into a wide variety of hardware and software solutions make for an ideal scanner to meet the challenges of the new retail landscape. From picking, packing, to order fulfillment and managing bulky goods, the right tools can make all the difference for your workers, and for your retail business. These newly enabled workers are better prepared to manage fluctuations in demand and have the tools they need to be successful in a challenging work environment.

The challenge is to always process orders correctly, quickly and carefully. ProGlove ensures this.
