Google Glass

First use in warehouse

7 May, 2014

Active Ants, an e-fulfillment company from the Netherlands, gives Google Glass to its stock pickers with custom applications to aid them in their jobs. This reduces their error rate by 12% and increases their stocking speed by 15%. Jereon Dekker, a managing partner for the company, explains how using Glass is preferable to using paper to document inventory:

The first benefit here is that the picker’s both hands are now free to access products in the shelves. The second benefit is the step towards a paperless world: lists no longer need to be printed, signed and bound. The third and probably the biggest advantage is the time saved by sending orders directly to the Google Glass, without first printing, signing and binding them. The fourth benefit is error reduction.
