Wearable Computers for mobility

As smart watches, fitness trackers and other wearable technologies become more common in our daily lives, warehousing & distribution center workers are beginning to expect the same seamless usability and performance from the technology that they use on the job. Just as we no longer need to hold a device in our hand to receive a phone call, track steps or monitor social media, distribution center employees are looking for ways to free up their hands to be more productive and efficient in their daily tasks. And with companies losing on average more than $400,000 every year in picking errors, business owners are interested in new “connected worker” solutions that help improve accuracy and efficiency.

mobility edge from Honeywell

Today, many distribution centers are still using handheld scanners, paper-based picking methods and mobile computers to move and track goods in very hands-on, repetitive workflows like each picking for e-commerce. Early iterations of handheld scanners had wires, which at the time were an improvement, but restricted motion and became a nuisance when the wires got in the way. The industry has since moved to wireless handheld scanners, which eliminate that problem, but still don’t enable workers to work “hands-free”. Also, the use of paper- or even mobile-based picking methods requires the use of one’s hands. But hands-free and wearable technology is rapidly becoming the de-facto choice for modern distribution centers. From software that offers workers a voice-based connection to the warehouse management system (WMS), to wearable barcode scanners connected via wireless communication standards like Bluetooth®, technologies that help free up workers’ hands and connect them to data more fluidly are helping to move the industry toward the next era of efficiency in data capture and order fulfillment.

wearable mobile devices

For example, the industry has seen an increase in the adoption of voice-based solutions that instruct distribution center workers through their picking methods in real time, and enable them to input data verbally, eliminating the need for physical picking lists or labels that must be carried around and updated manually. In fact, in a survey 1 conducted by Honeywell and YouGov, 87 percent of U.S. respondents said that they anticipate transitioning to voice solutions by 2020.

Creating a custom barcode label in 5 steps!

custom made barcode labels in 5 stepsDesigning a label for your product or customer using their company logo is easier than you think. You can easily categorize building a label in 5 steps. Understanding the difference between Thermal Transfer and Direct Thermal labels would be determined before we start the process. This can be easily done by the labels application and environment. Once, this has been established we can then move forward to the first step in creating our own custom label even with the company logo added. These labels are not limited to any certain quantities and can be priced out by volume and annual usage.

First, by selecting your label width and length to meet your application needs. Second, choosing the color of your label whether it be plain white or a specific color it doesn’t matter it can be up to 6 PMS colors or a four-color process for any image. Third, choosing the material type of your label from multiple substrates like paper, all types of synthetics or even a reflective coating. Fourth, does your label require an adhesive backing or would it be removed from it’s location? You can choose from a multitude of adhesives from temp to permanent. Lastly, would the label need a liner? Backing materials come in standard silicone coated paper in various thicknesses or select a clear polyester liner that offers less mass, weight and is recyclable.

 

The entire process can be done cheaper than you think. There are a ton of businesses online capable of simplifying the process but, one stands out among all the rest with over 25 years in the business. The Barcodfactory has been in the barcode and labeling business for some time now and creating custom labels among other things is their specialty.
