NBG Home deployed voice for picking and many other workflows in the distribution center. Learn more about the benefits that voice enabled workflows (text-to-speech and speech-to-text) provided for this leading home décor products company.
Coastal Pet Products Inc. is a manufacturer and distributor of pet restraints and products in North America. After the company recently transitioned to e-commerce, they needed a way to ensure picking accuracy and productivity, whether shipping direct to a consumer, store or distributor. When use of traditional paper-based picking methods in their DC became increasingly unreliable, operations managers switched to Honeywell Voice to better optimize the company’s DC picking. Voice-directed workflows drastically reduced training times, enabled productivity improvements, and increased picking accuracy to 99.8% — all while giving workers the safety and performance advantages of hands-free, eyes-free workflows.
Patterson Logistics has 14 legacy fulfillment centers that fulfill orders for dental and veterinary clinics, handling a daily average of 25,000 on-demand orders. They needed a solution that could grow with their needs and be implemented in all of their facilities, which required direct integration with an SAP extended warehouse management (EWM) system. As a certified SAP solution, Honeywell Voice met Patterson’s diverse requirements without the need for middleware. After the seamless migration to the SAP EWM system, Honeywell Voice replaced Patterson’s previous cumbersome training and picking processes. Watch now to see how their training process went from weeks to just hours — while delivering improvement accuracy and productivity rates.
Raleigh Bicycles is Britain’s leading distributor of bicycles and accessories, distributing to retail outlets throughout the U.K. After years of running their warehouse using a paper-based system, they knew it was time to make a change. Honeywell Voice delivered accuracy improvements up to 99.9% while driving productivity, enabling real-time stock control, and reducing training times. Hear from their operations director, IT leader and distribution manager about how Honeywell Voice solutions have transformed their operations.
Located in upstate New York, Saratoga Eagle is primarily an Anheuser-Busch wholesaler that serves over 200 partners. With rising diesel fuel and labor costs cutting into their profit margins, they were looking for ways to run their operations more efficiently and decrease costs. Moving into a new facility provided an opportunity to implement Honeywell Voice and create consistency among their picking processes. Even though the implementation took place during their busiest time of the year, they were able to increase accuracy, reduce training times, and grow their bottom line.
Supermercados Covirán, the second-largest food distributor in Spain, has been a cooperative of food retailers servicing Spain, Portugal and surrounding areas since 1961. The cooperative needed a solution to help them make the successful transition from primarily a cash-and-carry operating model to distribution. With a logistics partner, the co-op explored more efficient picking support technologies and chose Honeywell Voice and its rugged and ergonomic headsets, microphones and intelligent voice synthesizers. The move enabled its DC workers to enjoy hands-free, eyes-free picking while providing the technology infrastructure to support the company’s new business model.
As the first company in the European aviation sector, Lufthansa Technik AG has optimized the maintenance process of auxiliary power units (APUs) using the Honeywell Voice maintenance and inspection solution. Their process requires technicians to assess the external conditions of transport containers and components, and then record their findings in the primary diagnostics. The same process applies to the entire disassembly of each part of the APU, including part numbers. Before installing Honeywell Voice, the process required two mechanics to share the duty of manually checking diagnosis and inputting data into a computer. See how mechanics can now experience the hands-free, eyes-free efficiencies of Honeywell Voice, allowing them to concentrate fully on the task at hand and document activities in real time.
The aerospace industry relies on meticulous maintenance and inspection processes to ensure flight safety and meet regulatory compliance. Take an inside look at how Honeywell Voice enables voice-directed efficiencies with step-by-step instructions to help technicians maintain process rigor and automate record keeping in the aerospace industry.
