Voice Directed Warehouse OperationsRequest More Info
In a voice-directed system, the operator wears a voice terminal and headset, and is guided step-by-step through their business process. Confirmations of information such as location, product and quantity are spoken by the operator and then passed back as data to the warehouse systems.
Unlike paper lists or mobile devices with screens and keyboards, voice systems free the operator’s hands and eyes, allowing them to focus on their work and interact with the system at the same time as handling the product. By providing a more streamlined and ergonomic process that guides and validates operator activity, voice systems enjoy high user acceptance while also delivering quality gains and productivity improvements.
The benefits of hands-free, eyes-free, real-time work direction and data capture that are made possible by Voice are applicable to a wide range of warehouse business processes. Most customers choose to start by implementing Voice Picking, however, many have now expanded their use of Voice to other areas in the warehouse.
