How does Pick by Voice work?
Operators must use headphones and terminals specially designed to perform the tasks assigned to them.

The worker uses the microphone to respond to the requests or give orders, and the voice recognition system is the one that analyzes the answers and establishes whether the work has been done correctly in the warehouse. For example, Pick by Voice from Honeywell, also known as Honeywell Voice, can be combined with many storage technologies and devices and easily connects to the WMS or ERP system.
