Voice for your HighJump Warehouse

Posted by Tailar Kennedy on Nov 17, 2017 7:00:00 AM

Voice technology helps HighJump WMS users extend their logistics and fulfillment processes. It offers the promise of hands-free, eyes-free, wireless access to the information needed to drive key warehouse processes and has become an important component in the success of many IT strategies.

Like the traditional RF-based scanners, voice solutions center on a small, wireless mobile device. The difference is that voice delivers instructions verbally through a headset and captures responses using a microphone, eliminating the need to stop, look at a screen, and key in a quantity or scan a barcode. Coupled with a wireless headset, voice users can completely remove the need to have the mobile device on their body, offering even more freedom of mobility compared to traditional RF units.
