Vitronic is the first manufacturer of camera-based parcel identification
technology to offer an ‘App’ for system operators wishing to check their
hub’s performance and efficiency. Compatible with Apple’s touch-screen
iPad, it allows users to run remote diagnostics immediately from any
location in network range.
System operators are usually very busy, constantly moving around hubs to
perform a wide range of tasks. They need to be aware of current read rates
and other statistics to optimise facilities for efficient running, but
often complain it is easy to lose track of things when they leave their
Vitronic’s new App solves this problem. A quick glance at the compact,
portable iPad is enough to check a hub’s performance figures completely
The App is extremely user-friendly. With just a couple of finger swipes it
can display the status and read-rate of each individual parcel
identification unit, plus all current and archived read results.
Many intralogistics companies already use web-based software to monitor
the performance and efficiency of their automated sorting systems. Up
until now, this has only been possible at fixed workstations. Vitronic’s
iPad App collects the necessary information and displays it to the user,
wherever in the hub they may be – a truly innovative product!
