SAP, today announced that it will showcase two forthcoming augmented reality (AR) apps, the SAP® AR Warehouse Picker mobile app and SAP AR Service Technician mobile app. The planned apps are envisioned to help simplify and improve user experience and work processes by offering a hands-free working experience. This announcement was made in advance of Super Mobility Week powered by CTIA, taking place September 9-11 in Las Vegas.
"The new augmented reality mobile apps from SAP are intended to simplify and enhance user experience by providing access to enterprise information from anywhere while helping users stay focused on their work and environment," said Rick Costanzo, executive vice president and general manager of Global Mobility Solutions, SAP. "The envisioned potential and use cases expand far beyond consumer applications. These planned augmented reality apps from SAP are aimed at creating efficiencies for organizations across various lines of businesses by enabling real-time access to data for field workers and service technicians."
SAP AR Warehouse Picker:
-Is envisioned to allow warehouse workers to do all required tasks using smart glasses, which is expected to improve situation awareness, efficiency and workplace security.
-Is aimed at enabling hands-free experience using visualization and voice recognition to receive instructions via smart glasses, as well as allowing data entry to be handled through scanning or voice recognition.
-Is intended to help warehouse workers by providing inventory location, alerts and instructions for maintenance handling, and the delivery of safety messages to prevent accidents.
-With planned simplified authentication, the user experience is envisioned to be enhanced by eliminating the need to enter a username, password or other information required on the smart glasses.
