A voice picking system is automated technology that gives simple voice commands to employees through a speaker in a headset or vest for warehouse picking applications. Voice directed picking allows for hands-free scanning, which is a huge productivity booster when employees can move freely and efficiently through the warehouse without carrying a paper list or a scanner in one hand. Voice commands direct employees throughout the warehouse to the next picking area most optimized for efficiency based on your warehouse control system, and smart scanning of serial numbers and SKUs.
Voice picking technology is also used for replenishment operations, improving put away as well as pick functions. With picking labor making up approximately 55% of the total labor cost for distribution centers, implementing the leanest process available with the right technology drastically reduces costs by eliminating wasted touches, improving productivity and profitability.
