Technology Resource2018 Top 20 supply chain software suppliers While the top of the list remains stable, up-and-comers are mixing up the software landscape with Cloud capabilities that traditional vendors are working to replicate.
AR users wear smart glasses equipped with cameras, microphones and screens that add task information to their field of vision. Rather than typing data or operating a handheld device, AR users simply give a voice command to scan a bar code or capture an image they are seeing. This makes tasks easier and faster, with 99.9%+ accuracy.
“Pick errors are not always the fault of the picker, like when the wrong item was replenished,” said Keith Phillips, president of Voxware. “That’s why many companies have auditors downstream. But when unemployment is 4%, that’s not going to work. The technologies in our AR solution are intended to give the worker the ‘right technology combination for the job,’ making the human worker more efficient and taking costs out of the supply chain.”
The SaaS model means customers can implement AR technology, scale as needed, and quickly take advantage of product enhancements as they become available.
