Voice Picking

Voice Directed Order Picking Operations

Voice picking systems are a paperless order picking solution designed for environments in which a large number of product SKUs exist and require a low number of reaches per unit. Voice picking is an effective tool for picking operations because it allows the operator’s hands and eyes to be free for the task at hand. It’s fast integration and low training time makes it a cost-effective option that can generate +99.5% accuracy rates.

Whether you are looking to alleviate operation pain points or create efficiencies that support future growth, Bastian Solutions experts leverage their resources and capabilities to solve the problems of today and support growth tomorrow.

How Voice Picking Works

Each operator is equipped with a mobile device or voice dedicated terminal, and a headset with microphone. A wired or wireless barcode scanner can be added to increase accuracy and productivity. Easy-to-understand voice prompts direct operators to locations and instruct them as to what task needs to be performed. Multi-modal feedback adds operational flexibility, either via an operator's voice, a barcode scan or direct text entry.


To help achieve greater efficiency, Bastian Solutions’ Exacta intralogistics software integrates directly into your existing host systems through Exacta WES or WCS software solutions for important order information.  As orders are processed, Exacta sends updates back either in real-time as each pick is completed or in batches as individual orders are completed. Detailed operator metrics are displayed through reporting tools in Exacta.
