ProGlove, a provider of ergonomic wearable technology for industry, has announced the addition of new process analytics capabilities to its ProGlove Insight platform. ProGlove Insight collects a unique set of data by using its MARK barcode scanner family of products. The Insight ecosystem contextualizes the data and allows users to consume it according to their needs.
The platform draws on the capabilities of ProGlove's MARK barcode scanners to capture barcode data and seize metadata and information collected via the numerous sensors the devices feature. This data contextualizes barcode symbols, device configurations, time stamps, temperature readings, battery health and other raw data to provide the user with actionable insights. This allows for an overview of a business's entire warehouse process and thus supports data-driven decision making.
