“When our pick-by-voice solution was at end of life, we were looking for an innovative concept to help drive productivity and quality over what we had with voice. The Picavi solution fit that need. Not only did we realize productivity improvements of 15%, but we saw a 60% reduction in the training time, from both the trainee and the trainer. And we have maintained these gains now for over two years.”
Kyle Cridlin, NEOVIA Innovation Manager
Remote installation proved to be the perfect solution, not only during the travel restrictions during the Pandemic: This allowed Picavi to deliver smart glasses to the various sites in Europe and the USA. The hardware was prepared in the HQ to enable key users in Neovia’s logistics centers to install everything independently. This involved setting up the customer software with a customized menu guide and connecting it to the warehouse management system on site.
The hardware was connected before delivery, reducing the on-site installation requirements to a minimum. The glasses were connected to the respective site using the business intelligence software Picavi Cockpit, which features integrated mobile device management. After some brief training, the pickers on site were ready to start working with the intuitive system.
Shortly after the implementation phase, Neovia Logistics was able to boost efficiency by 15%. The simple visual guidance reduces the training time by up to 60%. There have also been significant improvements in both the precision of the dispatched orders and the training time for new employees.
Today, Neovia Logistics has global site licenses for Picavi pick-by-vision and the largest inventory of smart glasses in the global intralogistics industry.
