This past year, Gap Inc. distribution centers managed some 400,000 store deliveries, and they shipped more than 100 million parcels. With much of that volume concentrated in a three-month peak season that runs from October to December, the stress on production systems and people can be intense.
Two key measures of the success of the pilot project was the ease of adoption and minimization of disruption. Currently GAP is operational with some 600 ProGlove scanners in the Gallatin campus. With the pandemic, there was no time for extensive trainings but the intuitive interface enable new associates to be productive sooner. By minimizing focus on the tool, ProGlove scanners allow operators to concentrate more fully on their operational tasks. At the apparel's company scale, saved minutes quickly become hours with a significant return.
