A key objective in implementing Voice was enhancing productivity. There was a widespread labour shortage at the time. Finding and keeping people was a challenge. The Vocollect Voice picking system, supplied and integrated by Dematic Real Time Logistics, has delivered productivity and accuracy improvements, enhanced workplace safety and helped reduce distribution costs.
Additionally, with Voice being a more intuitive and ergonomically comfortable way of picking then their traditional RF picking, job satisfaction and workplace safety at Foodstuffs’ Voice-enabled DCs has improved.
