Voice Directed Systems: Selection & Implementation

With over two decades of unique business, engineering, and supply chain experience, our team has the experience and knowledge to assess your operations, develop a payback analysis, and successfully lead you through the selection and implementation of a Voice Directed Technology solution.

Operations Assessment  Payback Analysis  Selection and Implementation

THE PROCESS:

Viability Assessment

  • Assess all aspects of a Voice Directed Technology solution to determine overall viability
  • Perform comprehensive review of operations from Receiving through Shipping
  • Determine applicable implementation solutions where Voice Technology would provide benefit to the operations and produce requirements definition for system
  • Generate payback analysis to validate project including all costs associated with the implementation and integration of the voice system

Bid Specifications & Requirements

  • Develop bid specifications around requirements definition

Vendor Evaluation & Selection

  • Evaluate vendor responses and make selection based on cost, closeness of fit, company experience, system architecture, modification requirements, integration with WMS, etc.

Implementation

  • Develop implementation plan with the appropriate selected vendor
  • Lead systems implementation process including System Configuration, User and Integration Testing, Super-User and End-User Training, and Start-Up Support
  • Post-implementation review of expected results within 6 months of start-up

THE RESULTS:

Customized processes implemented to support voice picking including batch, cluster and train concepts producing optimal returns from system investment.
