From manual to voice-directed
Previously Lactalis’ Australian distribution centres (DCs) in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth had worked with Icon Integration and Honeywell to implement SAP WM and voice-directed picking processes to gain greater operational visibility, control and improve worker productivity.
By implementing a paperless voice picking process, warehouse operators were engaged in a hands-free warehouse picking process. The natural voice system also made it easier for workers to be ‘on-boarded’ and trained up, especially casuals. This meant workers were able to be productive on the warehouse floor sooner.
