Warehouses in multiple locations require fast and accurate workers as these workers perform thousands of picks every hour. Pick by voice software eliminates the need for workers to constantly look at documents or use both hands during picking operations.
The warehouse operator uses a voice picking software system to communicate with the Warehouse Management System (WMS) when performing picking operations. Speech recognition and speech synthesis are two important elements of a speech capture software system.
Voice instructions are sent to the warehouse operator via headset. The warehouse operator verbally confirms the action via a microphone which is sent back to the system. The warehouse operator reads back the last two or three digits of the items picked to ensure that the system verifies that the correct items have been selected. WMS will give the operator the next instruction based on the WMS system algorithm.
Voice capture software improves productivity, accuracy and security. Industries that use this software are wholesale, food and beverage, retail, consumer goods, and other distribution operations. Voice vote replaces paper-based or mobile computer-based systems that require workers to read instructions, scan barcodes, or enter information to confirm daily tasks are performed.
Voice systems include voice servers for communicating with inventory, order management, or WMS systems and with voice-enabled RF terminals used by workers on the warehouse floor. Voice servers complement WMS functionality by including order, task, and process management capabilities.
Vote by voice software benefits warehouse operations in many ways. Warehouse managers can measure the time cost of various warehouse activities including the time it takes to unload trucks or pack containers. Managers use this software to list the tasks performed by each warehouse worker. Sound capture software assists workers in a variety of warehouse tasks including picking, storing, replenishing and shipping. The preferred software with voice runs on a multitude of hardware devices including iPads, desk PCs and smart phones increasing the popularity of these mobile systems among warehouse managers and floor workers.
The evolution of sound capture software provides warehouse managers with increased levels of productivity and return on investment. Accuracy increases while the incidence of errors decreases. The new pick by voice technology reduces the time it takes to train new workers. Greater customer satisfaction is achieved because the hands-and-eye-free voting system allows operators to concentrate on activities with greater accuracy and timeliness.
Sound technology available in all In accordance warehouse management software modules, including Order Taking, Goods Receiving, Stock Taking, Face Filling Picking and Workforce Management. It is suitable for standard and bonded warehouse operations.
