Scandit Report Explores AR And Computer Vision Benefits For Post And Parcel Providers
Mobile computer vision-enabled smart devices will help increase efficiency within the busy work environment.
One of the leading developers of next-generation data capture technology enabled by mobile computer vision, augmented reality (AR) and machine learning, Scandit, have released a point-of-view white paper titled Mobile Computer Vision in the Post and Parcel Industry. This paper reveals how Post and Parcel providers can scan barcodes and text with smart devices to keep up with increased parcel volume, demand and customer expectations in a busy work environment.
The white paper provides an in-depth insight into how Post and Parcel organisations can leverage mobile computer vision-enabled data capture and AR solutions running on smart devices to increase the capabilities of existing barcodes in ways dedicated scanners cannot. The benefits that comes from these solutions include reduced costs, increased efficiency and few human errors, the ability to meet growing end-user demands, and the protection of customer investments by ensuring a reliable and efficient service. The white paper includes a number of different examples as well as to how the technology can be used in distribution centres, at the point of delivery, and at pickup and dropoff (PUDO) locations.
By using mobile computer vision and AR, Post and Parcel providers can dynamically improve their workflow and business efficiency by reading multiple barcodes in a single scan and then have a specific package or packages with special real-time instructions highlighted on the screen. Traditional dedicated scanners are currently unable to provide this level of efficiency and the advancements in AR technology mean the solution will continue to offer additional benefits.
“Post and Parcel enterprises can’t expect to use the same old technology and workflows and be successful in this explosive age of e-commerce,” said Samuel Mueller, CEO of Scandit. “The powerful thing about mobile computer vision-enabled smart devices is that they empower Post and Parcel providers to take the barcode that’s already on every package and turn it into a tool that saves them money and supercharges their performance and efficiency. Our new point-of-view white paper explains how to make this happen.”
