RDS™ and Voice Directed Picking
The Voice Directed Picking module of RDS manages the entire pick, pack and ship functions of the order fulfillment process, with hands-free voice directed pick and pack directions. RDS Voice batch picking begins in the freezer area, and directs picking throughout the operation. Products are validated with a combination of voice and hands-free scanning capturing lot numbers, GS-1, SKUs, and sell by dates. Cartons are then moved and slotted to the cooler and shipping areas, where Print and Apply Labeling Systems automatically apply packing slips and shipping documents. In-line scales and validation scanners slot cartons to either UPS or FedEx load stations for shipping.
Benefits of RDS Voice Picking System
In the case of Neesvig’s, Numina’s RDS Voice Picking System “reduced picking labor in the freezer by 50 percent”. Numina’s Warehouse Control System is guaranteed to provide results, with quick ROI usually within one year. RDS™ easily integrates with any Warehouse Management System (WMS) and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems.
