Forbes Business Council Member Carsten Funke of Picavi Shares How HR Professionals are Innovating Hiring by Using Technology To Recruit Warehouse Workers

Carsten Funke, CEO at Picavi USA, the leader in pick-by-vision technology, recently discussed enticing warehouse workers with innovative technology in Forbes. Read the full article here.

According to Funke, a new technology influencer at the table is human resources (HR). Until now, HR mostly only held the responsibility of onboarding new employees and sometimes training existing staff on how various warehouses, distribution centers and manufacturing technologies were to be used.

Funke shared, “Recently, a type of question I have heard over and over again is whether a new technology like wearable technology will attract more employees or dissuade those who have to learn a new system. I personally believe exciting tools that entice a workforce to apply for a position are golden these days. But when it comes to predicting what will work, the person who is first interacting with potential employees is the HR manager. The person coping with any rapidly exiting employees is also the HR manager. No wonder their input is rising to the top for technology decision-makers.”

Funke is a proud member of the Forbes Business Council, an invitation-only organization for successful business leaders and executives who are selected for the council based on the depth and diversity of experience in the business development space.

Current vs. Future State of Warehouse Picking

Whether warehouse or distribution center, the current state of picking remains problematic. These challenges grow more serious as picking migrates to e-retail fulfillment. The metrics and justification of Google Glasses, as a picking methodology, must include a constant, iterative, and continuous process improvement system. This requirement defines the future state of warehouse picking; only Picavi is ready to meet the future state today. 

About Picavi USA

Picavi USA Pick-by-Vision solution makes it possible to visually manage the picking process for goods in intralogistics in a consistent manner. Picavi’s Cockpit uses artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), and digital twin technology as a breakthrough innovation, maximizing productivity at warehouses and minimizing error rates. Only with this Smart Data technology are e-fulfillment solutions possible, transcending the initial value proposition of Google Glasses.

When wearing the smart glasses, warehouse workers have both hands free for primary tasks, including picking and packing goods. Augmented reality (AR) with context-based information makes work much more precise, predictable, and fun. Google Glasses have become an indispensable part of warehouse life.
