Here at StayLinked, we're thrilled to announce our partnership with Rufus Labs, makers of intelligent wearable warehouse technology and workforce analytics software. Our partnership aims to improve scan efficiency and warehouse visibility with Rufus Labs' suite of warehouse wearables including the Rufus Cuff Pro, the Rufus Scan2 & Scan2 Pro Wearable Ring/Glove Barcode scanners, and the Rufus RADD Tab vehicle/cart Android tablet.

This year's peak season is projected to be the busiest yet for ecommerce companies. eMarketer forecasts retail ecommerce sales to make up 18.8% of US retail holiday sales and grow 35.8% year-over-year. Warehouses, therefore, will be full of workers picking and packing to accommodate the shift driven by the COVID economy, and safety will continue to be a crucial issue for warehouse management.

Through this partnership, Rufus Labs mobile devices will be supported by StayLinked's SmartTE software and will allow StayLinked.IO connectivity to Rufus Labs customers. StayLinked's SmartTE provides a way to take advantage of today's modern touchscreen devices, like the Rufus Cuff Pro, with terminal emulation by transforming "green screen" application screens into easy-to-use, graphical screens with no changes to the underlying enterprise applications. This integration allows for:

  • Existing "green screen" applications to be transformed to look and act like native applications on the Rufus Cuff Pro
  • Speed and reliability of traditional terminal emulation with the intuitive, modern user experience of web-based applications
  • Robust reliability, virtually eliminating drop sessions between the mobile device and host application

StayLinked.IO is a technology-adoption and integration platform for the supply chain that empowers workers with intelligent automation and IIoT solutions. It allows the customer to take advantage of cutting-edge devices, such as the Rufus Cuff Pro and the Rufus Scan2 & Scan2 Pro, to increase productivity; configure and connect new technology, products, and solutions into legacy workflows; and connect with location-based awareness endpoints, such as Bluetooth beacon technologies, to inform your workers of where they need to be and where they need to go next.

"We're excited to offer StayLinked's SmartTE and StayLinked.IO connectivity to our customers," said Gabe Grifoni, founder and chief executive officer of Rufus Labs. "With ecommerce in high demand due to the COVID economy, our goal at Rufus Labs is to offer our customers quick, efficient software to do their jobs better. This partnership aids in just that."

"At StayLinked, we look to partner with companies that are committed to innovation," said Justin Griffith, CTO of StayLinked. "Rufus Labs' productivity-as-a-service platform is a perfect match for what we're focused on at StayLinked: extending the capabilities of host applications, optimizing workflows, and increasing warehouse productivity. We look forward to expanding our offerings to their customer base."
