Voice-directed warehouse technology is widely proven in the warehouse and distribution centre. Businesses operating within a diverse range of industries have reaped the benefits of improved productivity and pick accuracy in their warehouses along with reduced training times, reduced paper/label consumption and freeing employees to work ‘hands and eyes free’ from paperwork or RF terminals.
There is no question that voice-directed picking can produce an impressive return on investment in the correct application. If you have a fast moving picking environment, a broad warehouse SKU list and more than 10 warehouse pickers, then voice-directed technology is capable of producing ‘game changing’ results for your business.
Our eSmart® Voice-directed warehouse system has the capability to communicate in real time with the business host system, and therefore with the other warehouse functions. This means that activities such as real-time replenishment triggered by ‘shorted’ orders are now a reality.
BEC’s eSmart® Voice solution links directly to your ERP system and ensures maximum visibility of transaction data. For example, through our web-based dashboard tools, telesales staff can see precisely where their customer’s order is in the pick schedule, right down to individual pick lines.
Quick to learn, eSmart® Voice dramatically reduces training requirements and is ideal for warehouses or distribution centres with strong seasonal trends where temporary staff may be required to cover peak activity periods. eSmart® Voice can be used for a range of applications including picking, receiving, put-away, replenishment, packing, despatch and quality control.
