Picking the Right Items Every Time

Order picking is a significant warehouse operating cost with direct impact on customer satisfaction. Our Voice Picking solution can increase the speed and accuracy of your order fulfillment processes, getting the right orders to your customers faster and at lower costs. It’s another smart answer to one of your toughest problems.

Smart Warehouse Voice Pick Technology

Every new order is another chance to enhance customer satisfaction, cement loyalty, and grow your business. In the journey from manufacturer to customer, picking is a critical-but labor intensive-step. Enter warehouse voice pick technology, the new standard for worker productivity and operational efficiency. With voice picking, workers can begin using the system with limited training so new employees get up to speed quickly. And with manual data input eliminated, you can see up to 25% productivity gains and up to 99.9% order accuracy.

What is Voice Picking in a Warehouse?

With voice picking, workers use headsets and microphones with a speech recognition system and a Warehouse Management System (WMS) or Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution. The WMS or ERP points employees to the pick items required via the headset. Once picks are made, workers send voice confirmation back to the system.

Real Results with Our Voice Picking Systems

Faster and more accurate order picking

Faster than traditional paper pick lists and radio frequency picking, Voice Picking simplifies processes by reducing steps, keeping pickers’ hands free and their views of shelving uninterrupted. You can expect to see 10% to 15% faster picking than with paper-based processes and 15% to 25% faster than with radio frequency picking.

Less and simpler employee training

Voice Picking is familiar and intuitive for most workers. Whether you’re hiring new employees to meet warehouse growth or covering seasonal spikes, you can scale up your team to meet your productivity goals.

Cost-effective across the warehouse

Increased productivity means getting more done with the same number of workers. Labor costs are spread further across a greater number of customer orders. Voice Picking also reduces product breakage costs from dropped items since worker hands and eyes are focused on the task, not the technology.

Improved customer satisfaction

This is where the rubber hits the road. Faster, more accurate order fulfillment goes a long way to making customers happy. Orders are correct, ready to ship sooner and with less potential damage.

Flexibility to integrate with multiple vendor systems

Using Panasonic’s Rapid Application Development, Voice Picking can be integrated easily with Warehouse Management Systems (WMS) or Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) giving your workers the data they need to workers quickly locate items the first time.
