Wavelink releases next gen Velocity solution

By

Supply chain solutions vendor Wavelink has released the next generation of its Velocity mobile application platform which it says transforms warehouse productivity by increasing efficiency through reducing training and improving accuracy.

According to Wavelink the user-friendly application modernises traditional “green screen” applications by automatically building modern HTML graphic user interface (GUI), without the high cost of requiring a backend migration or customisation of host applications.

“Velocity is reinventing the industry by simplifying the incorporation of tailored user interfaces, allowing management to better focus on the business and not software development,” said Steve Bemis, vice president, mobile productivity at Wavelink.

“The supply chain has lived on green screen technology for more than 30 years. It powers everything delivered to your doorstep or stocked on store shelves and with this new platform, warehouses will see reduced training times and improved productivity and accuracy.”

Building on Wavelink’s existing VelocityCE, a fast-rendering browser for Microsoft’s mobile operating systems, Bemis says this latest release of Velocity accelerates productivity by taking full advantage of the latest touch-enabled mobile operating systems.  “By converting data fields that previously required multiple key presses into single touch or swipe navigation, task menus and yes/no questions are transformed into buttons on the display – offering a simple, more intuitive experience for the user.”

Bemis says Velocity, as well as automatically building a modern GUI by pulling from existing green screens, enables businesses to mitigate the costs and risks associated with updating and migrating mobile applications, all while improving productivity.

He cites some of the ways Velocity is changing warehouse operations including:

•    Modern experience. Velocity’s intuitive user interface leverages existing mobile touch screen technology and is more familiar to users, improving productivity and accuracy, while reducing training time

•    Reducing risk. Velocity automatically transforms existing green screens to a touch enabled modern HTML GUI, without forcing a risky migration project or making changes in the host system

•    Diminished cost. The platform eliminates the need for in-house mobile application development or migrations for modernisation, which can cost anywhere from $1 million to more than $10 million per application, depending on scope and scale. One retail vendor recently quoted $500 million in anticipated application migration costs

•    Customisable and configurable. Velocity’s administration console creates custom on-screen keypads and task screens to optimise workflow – offering the option to configure backgrounds, fonts and more.

“With Velocity, we’ve made it a priority to improve workflow while cutting down on unnecessary costs. Whether you’re debating a migration, or just looking for a way to boost output, we’re ready when you are,” Bemis concludes.  

Wavelink says Velocity is now available for companies looking to upgrade their green screen technology to customised, mobile-friendly GUIs on today’s leading mobile operating systems and devices. To learn more, click her.
