Application Blog Technology

Want to announce something exciting, the Unvired WorkFlow application for SAP is now also available with Apple Watch integration.  The new iOS 8 Interactive Notifications are also leveraged for this (https://www.apple.com/in/ios/whats-new/design/). What this means is, for a typical decision maker app like Unvired WF, you can take decisions without having to open the app. In the Unvired Workflow application the users can take decisions on workflow documents like Travel Approval, Purchase Order Approval etc. directly from the notification.

Further, if you are wearing an Apple Watch, then things become super easy. You can take these decisions directly from your Apple Watch as well.

Plus, you get a confirmation of your action from the backend system such as SAP right on your Apple Watch or iPhone, so you can be absolutely sure that the workflow was in-fact successfully executed.

Let’s cut to the chase and see how this works:

Whenever a new Workflow Document is created in the backend SAP system, your iPhone or iPad is notified by a push notification which typically looks like this.

If you have holstered you phone and wearing an Apple Watch, the notification directly gets delivered and shows up like this.

Now, you can do one of two things.
1. Tap on one of the decision buttons and thats it. The decision is made and sent to backend server for processing. Real simple.
2. Want to have a closer, more detailed look at the workflow, just tap on the notification. The app starts automatically on your iPhone or iPad with the corresponding workflow document and you can take decision after reviewing the document.
Key take away is the speed of decision making which is very critical for any successful enterprise.

Life is about doing, not just viewing right? The Android Wear Watch integration allows you to take actions on SAP right from your Watch.  And you get a confirmation of your action from SAP right on your Watch, so you can rest assured that the purchase order that you just approved was successful.

Whenever a new Workflow Document is created in the SAP system, your Android phone/tablet is notified by a push notification which typically looks like this.

Warehouse operators require real-time information in order to execute their tasks efficiently. Real-time information for operators mean real-time updates to SAP too. Most often warehouse operators are expected to use a PC or a kiosk to access SAP. In warehouses expecting operators to use PCs or kiosks for all their work is counter productive. Operators either have to keep visiting the PC after every task or for every piece of information or takes note on paper (to later enter in SAP). Visiting the PC or kiosk often is a waste of time. Translating paper work into SAP later is error prone and makes real-time visibility impossible.

Warehouse operators have to be enabled to access SAP processes from mobile devices. Unvired is releasing Unvired Inventory Manager for SAP, a mobile application that brings warehouse processes to the operators. Unvired Inventory Manager for SAP helps warehouse workers to get the stock overview, move goods, issue & return materials, count physical inventory, receive goods, create purchase requisitions and deliver goods efficiently from mobile devices real-time.

Unvired Inventory Manager for SAP is available on iPad, Android Smart Phones & Tablets, Windows and Google Glass.

Yes! Google Glass. Unvired Inventory Manager for SAP on Google Glass goes one step ahead of smart phones and tablets enabling warehouse operators work hands free with Glass.

Unvired Inventory Manager App Brings SAP on Google Glass

Application Mobile Use Case Technology

An operator in a warehouse is driving a forklift and has to check a particular material’s stock level for delivery. The operator has an iPad where he can get the stock levels from SAP. To do that he has to free his hands and use the iPad. Instead the operator talks to his Google Glass, scans the barcode on the material pallet and gets the stock levels for that material across all storage locations and batches by categories (quantity that can be shipped, quantity in quality inspection, etc.) on the Google Glass. He quickly glances at his Glass and knows exactly which storage locations he needs to visit in order to prepare for his delivery.

Then the operator has to move some materials to a different storage location to make space for his delivery. Driving the forklift he moves the materials. Once he moves the materials he scans the barcodes of the material, quantity and batch on his Glass. He dictates the from and to storage locations and moves the goods in SAP using his Glass!

Yes this is the new way of working in a warehouse! All this is possible because of Google Glass and Unvired Inventory Manager (based on SAP ERP) on Google Glass.

Yes! Unvired Inventory Manager is now on Google Glass!

Google Glass is an enterprise device that can be used in multiple industries – manufacturing, oil & gas, chemicals, utilities, etc. Inventory management on Google Glass is a classic case across these industries to manage the warehouses. Operators in the warehouses are very busy carrying goods and driving forklifts desiring hands free access to data and business processes. While smart phones and tablets provide instant information, Google Glass can provides the same information in a more convenient manner. Operators in the warehouse can now use the Unvired Glass application to manage inventory more conveniently (apart from using the app on tablets). Unvired Inventory Manager on Google Glass glassifies 2 processes – checking stock and moving goods across locations.
