Bringing voice-directed warehousing to Android devices

By Brian Lang, Director Real Time Logistics, Dematic.

Honeywell has integrated its Guided Work Solution with Microsoft Dynamics 365. This means that distribution centres (DCs) can now take advantage of voice-directed work if they use Microsoft Dynamics 365 as their ERP solution.

The integration of Honeywell Voice with Microsoft Dynamics 365 is the next step in allowing businesses of all shapes and sizes to maximise their investments in hardware, to achieve a huge boost in efficiency, accuracy, and productivity, which helps to streamline DC operations.

Businesses who have invested in Microsoft Dynamics 365 can now deploy voice headsets alongside any Android mobile device with the Honeywell Guided Work Solutions application downloaded.

Streamline your warehouse operations

Today, many small and medium businesses use paper-based methods to carry out the majority of tasks within the warehouse or DC, as well as scanners and other warehouse technologies, which are not centrally connected and are extremely time consuming. By integrating Honeywell Guided Work Solutions into Microsoft Dynamics 365 ERP, users are able to boost their productivity and accuracy by having simple access to advanced voice technology and all of its benefits at their fingertips.

Honeywell Voice is a seamless, paperless, and hands-free system, that can now provide workers direct access to Microsoft Dynamics 365 for both receiving and entering data. When Microsoft Dynamics 365 needs work done in the DC, the work is pushed down to the voice-enabled Android mobile application. Workers are then guided through their workflow using a mobile device and voice headset, with the inputs from voice and scanning then sent back to Microsoft Dynamics 365 automatically. This includes data gathered through anything from order picking, to replenishment, cycle counting and receiving.

Honeywell Guided Work Solutions is an out of the box system that is easily integrated into the Microsoft Dynamics 365 environment. After only a small amount of configuration and training, which Honeywell will provide as part of the product, it can be deployed in just 4-6 weeks, allowing customers to begin using the solution and experiencing its benefits immediately.
