Critical Insights to Selecting a Comprehensive Voice-Based Warehousing Solution
Today's business applications are more complex and time-critical than ever. Adaptability and multitasking have become more than just industry buzzwords in recent years, and nowhere are they more necessary than in warehouse operations. The ability to efficiently identify, receive, store, retrieve and ship goods and materials is critical to the overall health of a company. Complicating this task is a shrinking labor pool of skilled workers and an influx of workers for whom English is not their first language.
Increasingly, companies are recognizing that voice-based solutions offer significant benefits for a number of warehouse applications and help warehouse workforces to rapidly become more efficient and productive in their day-to-day operations, regardless of their skill level or language spoken.
Voice solutions recognize spoken words as data entry and provide audio (verbal) directions and confirmations to workers. For the non-technical operator, voice is the easiest and most transparent of all data entry and order picking technologies available. In fact, voice has been called the most natural and intuitive of all data entry methods since it's one of the first skills we learn.
