The Galaxy XCover Pro, which is android based, is a stylish, sleek and lightweight smartphone built for harsh environments, and can effectively perform multiple tasks at once. Furthermore, it provides a big and bright screen of 6.3”, providing top-quality display while looking at presentations, charts and schematics.

Samsung Knox platform users could also increase data security along with improving the guidance for workers.

Barcode scanning is a crucial function when it comes to documenting process steps as well as establishing traceability. The partnership with Samsung, offers ProGlove an example of technology that is built around humans, facilitating next-gen scanning solution, which is reliable, easy to deploy, reduces scanning time and also reduces picking errors through feedback from worker.

The worker feedback of ProGlove offers a combination of visual, audio and haptic signals so that correct picks and wrong picks are identified during the scanning. ProGlove’s MARK product family is used in few of the renowned brands like Lufthansa Technik, Bosch and BMW.
