Hands-Free Picking

Using hand free arm scanners enables the picking operators to be able to use both hands when picking items, but while still being able to view on screen the picking instructions. The arm scanner unit fits to the operator’s arms in a secure way allowing to the use of both hands for picking items for the order that is being picked.


The responses back to the system can be keyed into the scanner and sent to the server. This allows the updates of stock and order to be carried out. This is then checked if the number entered is correct with the amount and item on the order.
