Zebra Technologies Corporation recently announced intuitive warehouse offerings designed to optimize workflows, maximize productivity in the warehouse and improve employee onboarding. Offering a modern user experience that leverages Zebra’s Android-based mobile computers and accessories like the new enterprise-class HD4000 head-mounted display, Zebra FulfillmentEdge transforms existing warehouse management systems (WMS) by enabling real-time dynamic workflows and routing mobile workers for picking, packing and put-away without costly and risky upgrades or backend changes, according to Zebra. 

The corporation also recently introduced its single-finger RS5100 wireless ring scanner, providing mobile workers with an ultra-light hands-free scanning option for increased productivity in industrial environments.

According to Zebra’s recent Warehousing Vision Study, IT and operational decision makers are already taking steps to upgrade their facilities and WMS platforms. Findings show that 54% of surveyed organizations plan to implement full-featured WMS and mobile worker execution systems by 2024. 

“The on-demand economy is placing pressure on warehouse operations to quickly fulfill more orders than ever before, requiring a highly productive and efficient workforce,” said Joe White, SVP of enterprise mobile computing with Zebra Technologies. “Zebra’s intuitive FulfillmentEdge software and optional HD4000 head-mounted display provide mobile workers with clear, step-by-step instructions that reduce training time by 90% to allow near-instant onboarding while decision makers benefit from the real-time insights and analytics that enable better data-driven decisions.”
