Zebra Technologies has said its workflow software and wearables can increase worker productivity by up to 24%.

The firm’s HD4000 head-mounted display and single-finger RS5100 wireless ring scanner, in tandem with the Zebra FulfillmentEdge software integrated with existing warehouse systems, provide real-time dynamic workflows and routing for mobile workers.

Zebra said workers using these wearables were able to simultaneously pick multiple orders, dramatically increasing fulfilment times and boosting worker productivity.

“Zebra’s FulfillmentEdge software and optional HD4000 head-mounted display provide mobile workers with step-by-step instructions that reduce training time by 90% to allow near-instant onboarding, while decision-makers benefit from real-time insights and analytics that enable better data-driven decisions,”​ said Joe White, senior vice president of enterprise mobile computing.

Zebra’s research also found 62% of firms planned to add or upgrade to wearable computers.
