For many warehouse operators, paper-based systems prevail in their workflows. But even with the most efficient staff these systems introduce human error impairing processes including goods-in receiving, inventory management and picking and packing efficiency.
Technology costs, such as for voice, are constantly reducing with the once high adoption expense now on a par with other technologies. RF scanning and voice-directed technologies reduce errors and significantly increase efficiency resulting in optimised processes, reduced OpEx and increased revenue.
Not necessarily. In enterprises in which speech recognition has replaced paper-based solutions ROI is achieved in under 12 months.1 Voice-directed technology integrating with a WMS Warehouse Management Software solution delivers a 40-50% productivity gain over paper-based or barcoded data collection methods.2

Results vary depending on the workflows that the voice-enabled and current technology is that’s being replaced (paper, scanning, lights, etc.) but the list of potential benefits is significant.
