Order picking is by far the most costly operation in the warehouse. With voice picking, operators communicate through a voice terminal and headset with the host system, to receive and confirm picking instructions in real-time. It yields benefits such as productivity increases of 20% and more, and accuracy levels up to 99,9%.

Attaining an accuracy rate of 99.9% with voice picking is not exceptional. Voice picking reduces errors dramatically, because it:
Minimises opportunities to make picking errors
Intercepts errors at the exact moment when they make them
Allows operators to report anomalies in real time and get instant help or instructions on the situation at hand

Voice picking is faster than paper-based picking (+/- 10-15%) and Radio Frequency (RF) picking (+/- 15%-25%). It requires less training time and with its natural user-interface and hands-free operation operators work more efficiently. With online data integration, back-office administration becomes significantly eased.
