Neovia has been working with Picavi smart glasses since 2019, and now uses 85 pairs for order picking. The company has also purchased another 100 smart glasses and a worldwide location license for future global rollouts. According to the company, it is now the world’s largest user of smart glasses in intralogistics. Workers wearing the solution handle the processing of motorcycle components and retail merchandise for an internationally renowned motorcycle client at the Greenwood facility.
A new smart application within the smart glasses’ ecosystem is helping Neovia achieve further efficiency gains. The new business intelligence solution has features to generate data and provide administration and maintenance of the pick-by-vision glasses. Among other things, the integrated mobile device management simplifies training for new employees.
Larry Olson, director of global business technology solutions at Neovia shared, “With the pick-by-vision solution, we have seen significant productivity improvements in our warehouse picking processes. The simplified visual guidance for users also saves us up to 60% of our training time and has helped improve our overall outbound order accuracy.”
