  • Improved worker efficiency:

    • Large input controls to quickly dial in quantities.
    • The most important information made easiest to see and set in a large font.
    • Saved worker preferences and device-specific settings that can be managed centrally.
  • Improved ergonomics:

    • Large touch targets and other features that make the app easy to use with gloves.
    • A high-contrast design that provides clear text on dirty screens.
    • Custom button locations to match each worker's grip, device, and handedness.
  • Faster ramp-up of new workers:

    • Clear titles and illustrations for each step.
    • Full-screen photos to verify product selections.
  • Alignment with Fluent Design System guidelines for visual style and interaction.
