Smartphones Don’t Disrupt Last Mile Workflows

Last Mile workflows are at the core of your value chain. Any delay, error or downtime within these workflows easily becomes a cost center, while potentially negatively impacting on your customers’ satisfaction.

Here we highlight how smartphones not only don’t disrupt traditional workflows, they can add speed, efficiency and innovation to last mile processes, while still typically being x3 lower cost than dedicated scanners.

Maintain Workflows –
Push to Scan

Some smartphones have customizable buttons for similar usage to dedicated devices.

Just aim, push-to-scan and select the right barcode, more control, no disruption of workflows, and high acceptance with long tenured employees.

Improve Workflows –
Continuous Scan

No need to press a button to trigger scanning for fast and efficient high volume scanning.

Less fatigue compared to hardware scanners, select different symbologies when multiple present and minimal training is required.

Innovate Workflows –
MatrixScan AR

Support employees with real-time feedback on screen enabling high efficiency batch scanning.

Visualize workflows and errors with AR overlays providing instant feedback of task completion or other essential information.
