BEC (Systems Integration) Ltd., the UK-based supplier of data capture solutions for supply chain logistics and manufacturing, has recently launched its new eSmart Voice WMS Solution.
Created with fast-paced, customer-centric enterprises in mind, the solution enables everything within the warehouse to be controlled by voice technology, helping warehouses to be managed more efficiently and effectively.
Combining BEC's proven industry-leading eSmart® Warehouse software platform with Honeywell Vocollect Voice technology, eSmart Voice WMS delivers a powerful, scalable, flexible and dynamic voice solution designed to eliminate inefficiencies within the warehouse.
Philip Jarrett, Director of Sales & Marketing at BEC, comments "Our eSmart Voice WMS solution is built entirely around voice technology and has been designed to streamline mission-critical applications, maximise throughput and provide real-time, accurate information on all warehouse processes. With the ability to seamlessly integrate with any host business system, it allows users to experience the benefits of Voice within every aspect of their warehouse, including receiving, picking, cross-docking, put-away, stock movements and dispatch."
Offering a host of advantages over traditional RF scanning and paper-based picking, Voice-directed technology is becoming increasingly popular within warehouses due to its proven ability to enhance the complete spectrum of warehousing processes.
As well as producing an impressive return on investment (ROI) within fast-moving warehousing environments with broad SKU lists, Voice-directed technology can also help businesses increase worker productivity by up to 35 per cent, whilst reducing errors by up to 50 percent.
In terms of functionality, operators use a wireless wearable computer with a headset and microphone, through which prompts are delivered and responses are provided verbally. This allows them to communicate directly with the warehouse management system (WMS) whilst working 'hands-and-eyes-free' unlike paper-based systems or RF terminals.
With a proven and trusted track record in supplying and implementing voice technology within a range of warehousing and distribution centre applications, BEC is a specialist provider of Voice and WMS solutions designed to integrate seamlessly into any host ERP system to fulfil business and commercial requirements.
Having achieved 'Gold Total Solution Provider' status with Honeywell Vocollect, the Voice-enabled technology provider, BEC's solution has been designed with best-of-breed Honeywell Vocollect Voice at its core, rather than as an add-on.
This means that users can enjoy a fully-optimised Voice experience throughout their warehousing facility, helping them to enhance and improve upon their mission-critical processes and applications.
