Warehouse Leaders: Improve The Way Workers Engage With Your Mobile Devices
Updated: Mar 21
As supply chain operations digitise workflows and strive to improve asset visibility, productivity, and efficiency, a greater amount of pressure is being placed on driving greater quality engagement between production workers and enterprise mobile devices.
Throughout this blog, we will explain how business leaders can use technology, like Zebra Technology’s Intelligent Cabinets, alongside device modernisation tools, to migrate mobile devices away from legacy systems, then optimise and manage them in a way that prevents losses, streamlines processes, and generates actionable insights for business leaders.
Optimising Mobile Device Workflows For Warehouse Workers
Zebra Technology’s 2024 Warehouse Vision Study referenced “worker comfort”, “seasonal labour”, and “labour retention” as the top three, of seven, priorities for warehousing labour initiatives by 2024.
MiTEQ is helping warehouse enterprises deploy Ivanti Wavelink’s Velocity platform, to modernise traditional “green screen” layouts, on mobile computers, and make it easier for new workers to get to grips with unfamiliar enterprise systems.
“Why is this so important?” Because half of the battle is choosing the right mobile technologies, and the other half is making it simple and straightforward for workers to click the right buttons, and engage with systems in the right way.” - Annie Wilson
Where existing mobile systems are presenting users with several buttons to click - six of which might be irrelevant to their role, or day-to-day tasks – MiTEQ is enabling businesses to select the right buttons to display, and present them in a way that is easy for workers to engage with. These changes cam dramatically improve productivity, all while preventing task-critical mistakes from occurring.
Intelligent Cabinets For Greater Mobile Device Storage
MiTEQ are also supplying warehouse operations with Zebra Technology's Intelligent Cabinet solution, designed to improve the security of mobile device storage, automate device provisioning, and make is effortless for business leaders to keep track of device usage.
David Degrassi, a specialist in enterprise mobile computing, says that, “if a single worker’s mobile device goes down – or missing – for just a few minutes, productivity can be dramatically reduced and customers impacted. Even short recovery delays can compound and create longer fulfilment delays.”
Zebra Intelligent Cabinets have been developed with over 15 years of experience, and offer a portfolio of both standardised modular and customised storage solutions, to enable optimum business continuity and efficiencies in warehouse, transportation, logistics, and retail operations.
