Voice solutions take the lead
Published: 16 January 2012 - Heather Ramsden
Ireland based Glanbia, headquartered in Kilkenny, is successfully using Vocollect’s voice-centric solutions for mobile workers at its local facility. Joe Pajer, president of Vocollect says: “Last May, Vocollect heralded a bold new vision for the warehouse and distribution center market: that companies would be expanding their use of voice-directed solutions beyond picking – to workflows such as cycle-counting, receiving, loading, put-away, replenishment, put-to-store and more – realising even greater performance improvements and cost savings. This number is growing, as executives continue to recognise the impact voice can bring to their logistics operations.”
Today more than 80 customers are using Vocollect Voice in warehouse operations for distribution tasks beyond picking including.
Among these is Glanbia, a €2.6 billion international nutritional solutions and cheese group headquartered in Ireland. The solution has been implemented by Vocollect Total Solutions Provider Heavey RF and is currently being used for picking, transfers, receiving, loading, stock-counting and forklift applications.
