South Africa, Johannesburg, 11 July 2018 -
Toshiba today announces the arrival of its latest enhanced dynaEdge DE-100 and AR100 Viewer Assisted Reality smart glass solution, xPick.
The new "pick-by-vision" order picking capability is designed to provide industry-leading workflow efficiencies within the logistics sector.
These new enhanced capabilities have been delivered through Toshiba’s strategic partnership with Ubimax
, a global market leader for enterprise wearable computing solutions, which boasts long-standing experience in developing dedicated solutions to improve the workflows of customers across many industries. xPick follows xMake, xInspect, and xAssist as the most recent addition to the dynaEdge’s suite of assisted reality workflow modules, optimising productivity for businesses operating in the industrial sector.
The solution is designed to improve productivity levels throughout workflows, assisting from the manual order picking, sorting, and inventory management stages, right through to goods receipt and removal processes. Efficiencies are delivered through a hands-free, assisted reality display with instructions transmitted directly through the data glasses into the employees' field of vision. Barcode-scanning, weight-checking and localisation modules can be included to increase accuracy levels and further streamline workflows.
“Intelligent assisted reality solutions have really captured the market’s attention over the past 12 months. Indeed, our latest study found that 77 per cent of all IT decision-makers surveyed in Germany plan to introduce this innovative technology to their businesses over the course of the next three years1
,” said Maki Yamashita, Senior Vice President, PC & Solutions EMEA, Toshiba Europe GmbH. “We’ve found that the opportunity to maximise productivity whilst expanding an organisation’s suite of connected devices is a winning combination – particularly when it comes to manufacturing and logistics-based enterprises.”
“The reception from our customers and partners following the launch of our first suite of modules was overwhelming,” said Jan Junker, Chief Commercial Officer, Ubimax. “We’ve really responded to market demand by further enhancing industrial workflows with the expanded level of smart glass solutions we’re running on the Windows platform. Working alongside Toshiba to drive transformational change across a variety of sectors has been a real highlight of our partnership. xPick, running on Toshiba’s dynaEdge platform, will work seamlessly alongside our existing modules to create efficiencies on an entirely new level.”
The new solution will be available from July 2018 in South Africa.
