When considering voice for the warehouse, it can be hard to find answers to your questions. Is voice a good fit for my operation? How would voice work in my warehouse? What do I have to gain from a voice implementation? With the help of the Vitech guide to voice, you can find all the answers to your voice questions in one place.
Voice directed work is about empowering team members to deliver flawless performance in your DC. Why does it work? Voice removes the handheld devices. The paper. The distractions. From receiving, to put-away, to picking, to shipping, Voice directed work creates a direct dialogue between your mission critical systems and team members through the simplest means possible: a conversation in plain language they use every day.

Voice directed work allows users to concentrate on the task they are performing, freeing them from having to focus on the tool that they are using. This simplifies the function and streamlines physical movements by eliminating the necessity of picking up and putting down a device or instruction sheet, or shifting the gaze from the material being collected. This not only translates into more efficient physical movement, but greatly reduces the opportunities for error.
Because focus is never removed from the task at hand, instances of product damage or worker injuries are greatly reduced. There is no need for a worker to take eyes off the box cutter or off the racking as the worker places a pallet in a tight spot. As a result, there are fewer injuries, fewer dropped products, and fewer punctured cartons, providing direct savings to the bottom line.
Because each task that a worker performs is driven by voice, there is no need to train workers on reading printouts, knowing when/where to apply labels, or how to confirm information through a keyboard. Once a worker attends a one-time training session and creates a voice template (which takes as little as 15 minutes), the entire work process is driven step-by-step through voice commands. Workers are typically up and running in hours, not days. In addition to getting new team members up to speed quickly, our customers consistently report a much higher degree of worker satisfaction than that typically found with handheld devices or paper.
