ROSSMANN / Czech Republic Success Story

ProGlove´s Solution for Retail and eCommerce

With the paramount shift in fulfillment operations in the past two years, keeping up with demand is essential. Goods are being consumed at higher rates and manual workflow processes do not work as well as they used to. These shifts bring forth the need to put more ergonomic, efficient processes in place, which is something that ROSSMANN recognized early on. These rejuvenated processes also bring to light that data analytics from scans that can identify gaps and help boost productivity in the distribution center, as well as uncover other insights.

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.

In order to be able to perform your tasks well, it is necessary to have high-quality, ergonomic equipment.

ROSSMANN / Czech Republic Success Story

ROSSMANN was seeking an ergonomical solution that provided insights on the productivity within their distribution center. They are challenged to bring their customers the widest range of products to make life more beautiful. This requires consistent on-time delivery that is not held up due to manual workflow processes and inefficiencies.

ProGlove Solution

By looking at the data provided with ProGlove Insight Platform, ROSSMANN was able to identify gaps in their processes and fill those gaps in more efficient ways. Not only did ROSSMANN benefit from the data insights, the ROSSMANN employees gained a newfound freedom – two free hands. This allowed the employees to have increased comfort while working and also helped them boost their productivity.

The ProGlove Effect @scale

In early 2021, ROSSMANN began to utilize ProGlove scanners in their goods receipt processes and successfully managed to solve process flaws through ProGlove Insight.
