Pick-by-Voice

Intelligent order management with Voice Picking: The paperless way to maximize order-picking productivity, efficiency, and accuracy

Pick-by-Voice offers you numerous advantages over conventional order picking methods such as paper lists or wireless terminals. Rather than communicating visually via paper or computer monitors, Pick-by-Voice relies on voice instructions through headphones and a microphone.

 

By freeing the operator’s hands to handle the stock items, Pick-by-Voice ensures an ergonomic and efficient pick sequence. With the need to handle wireless data terminals and paper lists eliminated, the order picker can focus entirely on retrieving the required items.

 

No more manual keying of data or time-consuming scanning of stock locations. Instead, the instructions to and responses from the picker are entirely by voice. Delays caused by the picker having to stop retrieving items in order to enter data into a device are a thing of the past. The operation is streamlined – and productivity increases.

Benefits of Dematic Pick-by-Voice and Voice Director

Customized configurations: Pick-by-Voice from Dematic can be easily tailored to the most diverse individual project requirements. Configurable task sequences, menus and displays mean that the software can be easily customized to meet individual demands. As a result, all process steps can be carried out in the optimum sequence, ensuring maximum efficiency.

 

Efficient reporting: An integrated reporting tool enables you to have all process-critical parameters at your fingertips at all times. Pick order sequences, status information, time remaining until order completion and productivity data of individual picking zones can be analyzed at any time. The system generates the relevant statistics and reports from stored, real-time data. This enables you to assess the utilization and efficiency of the system in real time, a huge advantage over the time-consuming conventional processes.

 

Intelligent warehouse management: In addition to the actual order picking, the system also performs important tasks at the warehouse management level, particularly in configuring and optimizing pick sequences. At this level, the system provides many options that can be set according to the needs of the individual customer. These include criteria such as mapping warehousing structures or taking time standards or shift changes into consideration as well as supply line control, inventory support and personnel management.
