Bavaria will optimize DC’s with Inther Group’s Voice Picking

Bavaria N.V. will optimize the logistic process in the horeca DC’s in Lieshout and De Meern (the Netherlands). They asked Inther Logistics Engineering B.V. to implement a Voice Picking system. This will guarantee an improvement of the quality and productivity and this will give a better perspective for the daily process.

One of the things that is missing in the current (paper) picking operation is online registration of accomplished actions, which leads to a minimal understanding of the overall progress of the logistic process. With the Voice Picking system, data will be registered and processed in the logistic dashboard of the Inther LC software. The essential tools which will grant you an overview and which will enable you to guide the workplace are located here.

Operators have both of their hands free and that is one the strengths of Voice Picking. During the picking of heavy articles such as beverage cases and barrels, this is a big advantage. Furthermore, this enables the operators at Bavaria to simultaneously process the products and record the confirmations in the system. This form of multi-tasking results in the necessary time saving which improves productivity. Inther uses the speaker independent voice recognition of Audora. This means that everyone in the warehouse can wear a headset and start working immediately, without having to record a voice profile. This is also called Speaker Independent Recognition (SIR).
