Warehouse operators require real-time information in order to execute their tasks efficiently. Real-time information for operators means 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 paperwork 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 for iPad, Android Smart Phones & Tablets, Windows and Google Glass.

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 the 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!

While smartphones and tablets provide instant information, Google Glass can provide 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).
