Rufus Labs launched Proximity Alerts via its suite of warehouse wearables, including The Rufus Cuff, ScanGlove, PalmScan and Rufus RingScan.
“Now is the perfect time to launch Rufus Proximity Alerts across our wearables as warehouses scale up in the face of this year’s unique peak season,” said Gabe Grifoni, founder and chief executive officer of Rufus Labs. “Each worker equipped with a wearable provides increased visibility providing a much-needed sense for where every worker is within the warehouse, which leads to increased safety and efficiency within warehouses at a time when they need it most.”
Rufus Labs integrated Proximity Alerts across all devices with haptics built in to notify users when they are within 6 feet of one another. Unlike typical handheld scanners, a warehouse wearable provides accurate alerts of when a person is too close to another worker, rather than alerting based on the position of the tool, which can be laid down, or left behind, which decreases its accuracy. The full Rufus Labs product line is comprised of the Rufus Cuff Pro, ScanGlove2, PalmScan2 and Rufus RingScan2, a rugged, lightweight ring-barcode scanner (1D, 2D, UPC, QR) built to be worn comfortably on one finger. All products are part of the Rufus WorkHero subscription, which combines Rufus industrial wearables with Rufus WorkHero visibility software. All Rufus Labs customers always receive the latest software and hardware as a part of the subscription offering, including this latest Proximity Alerts launch. This ensures that Rufus customers are equipped with the latest technology that increases warehouse productivity, safety, and accuracy, all while reducing labor costs and providing unprecedented labor visibility.
The WorkHero subscription is also scalable so customers adjust based on seasonal need, and because the technology is designed for ease-of-use and integrates seamlessly into the WMS, customers can start using Rufus technology on day one.
