Visual Hands Free Logistics
Build fast, with BPMN, workflows for your logistics co-workers
Why Hands-Free ?
Increase Efficiency and Quality
Working with your hands free in a logistics environment will improve efficiency. No more need to carry paper or hand scanners
Visual support enhances the quality with a low learning curve.
Your operators are up to speed in a short time
BPMN Business Flows
Design your optimized workflow
Design and improve the workflow for your logistics co-workers with a WYSIWYG BPMN Editor and implement the business logic in reusable BPMN Business tasks.
Connect to any back-end system (WMS, TMS, ERP...)
Integration with any back-end system
Send and retrieve data from any back-end system and any data source. The Smartpick data connector can even integrate existing Telnet/Putty solutions.
Augmented Reality on hands-free devices
The TILES app runs on any Android device and is the interaction part with the end-user. The Flow Engine is device agnostic. The TILES app visualizes the processed information coming from the Flow Engine, adapted to the properties of the device. We support Projection Systems, Tablets, Wrist Computers, Smart Glasses and Smart Watches.
Designed for Business & IT Fusion
The layered architecture, BPMN based business flows and the clear separation between front-end business logic, back-end data and user interaction is the ideal environment for fast, iterative agile development
Smartpick SDK Benefits
Continuously improve the operational workflows for your logistics co-workers
From Telnet to REST
Reuse your investment.
Integrates data from different existing data sources into one environment. Our unique screen-scraping technology can integrate existing Telnet (screen) based applications without any changes on the back-end
BPMN Based Flows
Most business flows in back-end systems are not optimized for the work on the floor. The Flow Engine is designed for the execution of optimized co-worker workflows.
The Flow Engine is 'device agnostics' and sends commands to the TILES App installed on a device
Optimized for your devices
The TILES App is 'device aware'. Commands from the Flow Engine are presented to the co-worker depending on the characteristics of the device.
It is possible to switch from one device type to another at any moment, without impact on the business flow.

Agile Development & Iterative Deployment of Logistics Processes
Flexible Business Flow Engine
Agile build & deploy
It all starts with the design of a business flow with a BPMN/DMN Designer. The business flows are loaded into the Flow Engine and linked to Java Business Objects.
The Business Flow Engine supports BPMN 2.0 notation. Changes can be done on the fly, without the need to redevelop business logic.
Server Side Screen Scraping
Unleash your legacy applications
You can leverage existing (legacy) systems with our unique screen scraping technology. Integrate your Putty/Telnet screens in new business flows and deploy them on Android devices, without any change on the back-end systems
Customized Data Connectors
Exchange data from any system
Most of the WMS/ERP system offers standard API's for integration and we will release more and more standard Data Connectors. But very often, WMS/ERP systems are tailored for your needs. Therefore we can implement customized Data Connector.
Interact with any Android Device
The Flow Engine handles all the front-end business logic and sends/receives information from the Operators/End Users. The Flow Engine is 'device agnostic', it just sends commands to registered devices without knowing what type of device it is. The TILES app on the Android device is device aware. It runs on any Android device and adapts the UIX (User Interface and Experience) for the different types of devices.
For the user on the work floor
The TILES app contains a complete set of pre-build UIX elements, optimized to support the operator during the execution of logistics processes. It has special 'Scan tiles' to use the camera facility of the Android Device or 'Input tiles' that supports hands-free scanners. An 'Augmented Reality Tile' can enhance the User Experience even more.
Scalable & Mission Critical
From 1 to 10.000 users
The layered architecture of SmartPick based on Industry standards is highly scalable and support highly availablity. It can run on a single, small server and you can scale it to multiple servers with redundancy & failover.
TILES: The app on your Android devices
TILES app is the interaction between the business flows and the operator
Android 6.0 and higher
Runs on any Android device, Android 6.0 and higher.
Supports: Smart Glasses (Vuzix, Iristick, Google Glass, ...), Tablets, Rugged Phones, Android Things devices (for Projectors or Large Displays) etc...
Adapts itself to the device specific characteristics
TILES app is aware of the characteristics of each device. Hands-free devices do not have a keyboard. Some devices have special Barcode readers embedded, other devices uses special designed voice engines.
Business Flow agnostic
TILES app works in slave mode
The TILES app receives commands from the Business Flow Engine and executes those commands within the possibilities & boundaries of the device. It also returns the results of an interaction with the operator.
The same app can handle different logistics business flows on demand.
Designed for Logistics Processes
Designed for performance
Speed & simplicity is key in the execution of logistics processes. The UIX is therefore very simple and clear. TILES app supports multiple languages, uses visual signs and has speech support (the operator can hear and see what he has to do).
Pre-defined and configurable TILES
Basic building blocks
A TILE is an UIX element and a screen of a device is build with a combination of TILES. The Business Flow engine decides what type of TILES is needed. The TILES App knows how to present the TILES. The TILES app has a predefined set of different TILES, like: Tabbed Text Tile, Camera Scan Tile, Scanner Scan Tile, Augmented Reality Tile, Error Tile, Action Tile, Text Tile, HTML tile, Rows Tile etc...
The look & feel of those tiles are configurable in device specific Templates
