Retailers are opening warehouses at a record pace, but are finding there are not enough workers to staff them. “It’s almost like peak season is never ending,” said Meghan Henson, a human resources officer for IKEA.
Skylight is a hands-free augmented reality platform that accelerates productivity for new and existing workers by displaying work instructions, pick locations and more within workers’ line of sight via smart glasses. By providing your operators with a hands-free wearable solution, they can keep their heads up and focused on the task at hand and more accurately fulfill orders. Skylight can also be taken in-store to support staff in real-time inventory checking and replenishment.
