Racing to Success with Vocollect Voice

Challenge: The manufacturer of the most recognized and best-selling brand of motocross apparel in the world today needed to accelerate distribution center performance to support company growth and expansion.

Solution: After setting up a test comparing voice to paper on picking to totes and cart-picking that took less than one hour to sell management on the Vocollect Voice solution; initially in picking, and then deployed to replenishment, cycle-counting, slotting, receiving, and packing.

Results: 20-25 percent increase in productivity, 90 percent of the cycle-count is performed using voice, and nearly half of it is performed in-line with picking, and interleaved replenishment process was a 20-25 percent increase in productivity, as Fox increased the rate from 25-27 lines per hour using RF to over 35 lines per hour with voice.
