CHICAGO and MUNICH – ProGlove has received Frost & Sullivans renowned Best Practice New Product Innovation Award. This recognition acknowledges ProGlove’s latest contributions to the industrial wearable technology market. The report emphasizes that ProGlove earned Frost & Sullivan’s 2022 European New Product Innovation Award for its strong overall performance in the wearable barcode scanner industry. This assessment reflects Frost & Sullivan’s analysts’ independent evaluation.


In 2022, ProGlove introduced three new wearable barcode scanners: LEO, MARK 3, and MARK Display Standard Range (SR). Additionally, ProGlove launched, the Hand Strap, a one size fits all consumable, and Narrative Insights for its Business Analytics Platform Insight.


  • The uniqueness of the LEO wearable scanner is its price-performance value. The scanner’s list pricing is at least 30% less than its closest competitor.
  • MARK 3 is a multi-range barcode scanner for ranges from 10 centimeters to 6 meters. The device adds additional flexibility and helps reduce scan time by some 5 seconds per scan.
  • The MARK Display SR explicitly targets manufacturing applications with a scan range of 6 inches to 3 feet. Thanks to its 1.5-inch display that relays instructions it can help save 6 seconds per scan.
  • The Hand Strap is a one size fits all wearable that significantly reduces the total cost of ownership and facilitates the need to address fluctuating staffing levels on sites.
  • Narrative Insights is an extension of ProGlove’s industry analytics platform Insight. Narrative Insight delivers its findings on key performance indicators in a news stream so that no manual intervention is necessary.


In the award report Frost & Sullivan highlights that ProGlove scanners weigh less than 50 grams and have a form factor similar to a matchbox, making them the market’s thinnest, smallest, and lightest scanners. The report also emphasizes that ProGlove’s scanners stand out in the market for their long battery life and rapid charging capability. While competing scanners in the market require a longer time to charge, ProGlove scanners can be fully charged in less than 2 hours using the ProGlove charging station.


“ProGlove uses a unique modular platform-based approach to deliver innovations addressing market needs faster than the competition,” said Ram Ravi, Industry Principal at Frost & Sullivan. “Its portfolio offers features and functionality that enhance operational efficiency and worker productivity.”
