Improvements in Picking
With voice tasks to control all warehouse operations from goods receiving through put away, picking and replenishment to dispatch and stock management; a voice-controlled WMS can transform your warehouse into a real-time, paper-free environment.

Some of the biggest benefits with voice come from improvements in picking if you equip your pickers with headphones to take voice commands from the WMS. Your pickers will work faster and more accurately.
With voice assistance to your pickers and ability of the WMS’s voice engine to reply to their queries, productivity will go up while error rates will decrease. Picking rates typically improve by fifteen percent or more. At the same time, a voice-enabled WMS slashes error rates to 10th of the percentage or less. Accuracy levels of 99.97% to 99.99% are typical in our voice-directed WMS.

Voice freeze workers hands and eyes and make picking-lists birthing of the past. Pickers just talk and listen as they work with their headphones connected to the warehouse management system, which make the whole job of picking easier, natural, and efficient.

Workers like the headset, which allows them to work yet hear any noises around them. Thus, resolving any health and safety issues.
