What is voice picking?
Voice picking helps you improve the processes in your warehouse. It is also known as pick by voice or voice-directed picking . This speeds up the picking process and reduces errors which helps you generate cost savings and improve customer satisfaction . Whilst it’s usually used in the warehouse, voice can also be used in other environments and processes, such as cross-docking, pick and pack, receiving, put-away and cycle counting. See voice picking at work in this video.
What equipment should I use for voice picking?
Order pickers are equipped with a mobile terminal and headset. You can use either a voice dedicated terminal, which has voice as the only interface, or you can use a general purpose mobile terminal.

I have many temporary workers, does a pick by voice system require a lot of training?
Voice picking is ideal for environments with many seasonal workers. The system guides the operators through tasks, with simple and easy to understand voice dialogues. This means the need for training is dramatically reduced . As it’s powered by the MCL Voice speech engine, it copes particularly well with different dialects. See how voice picking works in this short video.
