Labor expenses can be more than half of the costs to operate a distribution center, especially labor costs for picking processes. Order fulfillment operations such as B to B, and B to C internet fulfillment centers process a large number of mixed SKU orders, requiring workers to pick from various lots and bins. Improving worker productivity in picking and replenishment operations reaps big rewards to the bottom line in any distribution process.
Voice picking technology provides hands free barcode scanning, improving worker productivity by up to 50%. With clear voice commands, employees are directed to the next picking location and led through the most optimized pick path to pick order fulfillment items. Voice picking technology is proven highly effective in a multitude of operations, including frozen food distribution centers where employees are exposed to a cold environment. By improving productivity, efficiency and accuracy, workers are more satisfied with their job and more engaged.
