Voice picking is a paperless order picking solution designed for environments in which a large number of SKUs exist and require a low number of reaches per unit. Voice picking is an effective tool for picking operations, and above all, is easy to learn.
Voice picking is designed to keep an operator's hand and eyes free, allowing them to focus more on the task at hand. Each operator is equipped with a mobile device or voice dedicated terminal and a headset with microphone. A barcode scanner (wired or wireless) 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 via an operator's voice, a barcode scan or direct text entry provides additional operational flexibility.
