After 18 months in development the new voice picking system is here!

It has been three years since we started looking for a better, more accurate and ultimately efficient order picking system and 18 months since development began on our custom built voice picking system. We believe it is a first for the florist trade to use such a system, more recently we have been to Holland to demonstrate it and have had visits from our sister company/exporting partners in Holland who see the benefits and they are trialing the system too!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What are the Benefits?

  • Each parcel/variety is referred to by bar code – the order picker must speak check digits to confirm or re-pick if incorrect.
  • Relays orders/information from web shop system.
  • More defined location bays with picker directed to a location before being informed of the item information.
  • Order pickers are now totally hands free, which will help with efficiency but most importantly packing.
  • Automatically prints address labels.
  • Order picking, packing and distribution will be much more streamlined, making it more efficient and accurate.
  • We have been advised the system will achieve 98.9% accuracy rate.

Over the past few weeks Nick our General Manager and Andrew our MD have been working alongside the night shift to test the system and they have been very impressed with the accuracy, the system is so robust they feel it will be almost impossible to pick the wrong item. When the picking system is fully developed we will be incorporating Voice into other functions of warehouse activity.
