Voice benefits for the warehouse worker/order picker

Implementing voice picking in your business is a change process. Properly communicating the (major) benefits of voice picking to your employees compared to barcode scanning or paper will facilitate a smooth transition to the new situation of order picking with voice.

What is voice picking?

With voice picking, each warehouse employee has a voice terminal and headset with microphone. The order picker receives humanly spoken instructions on his headset about the pick location. Once on site, he speaks a control number. After confirming the correct location, the system indicates in voice how many units he or she should pick.

Clear benefits of voice picking in practice

  • Error reduction
  • Time Saving & Productivity
  • Two hands free
  • Cost savings

Responsible ergonomics

With a voice picking solution, your order picker can work quickly and comfortably. Less stressful work due to fewer movements such as bending and stretching. No more walking through the warehouse with a terminal, which still weighs quite a bit.

Greater safety

Because hands and eyes are kept free, your employee can fully focus on his main task: order picking. Actions necessary in order picking with barcode or paper are no longer necessary.

Shorter incorporation time

Because voice is a “natural” way of working, your order pickers can learn this without much effort. Induction of new or temporary employees also takes little time.

Cost savings

In our experience, productivity increases by an average of 20% after implementing a voice solution for order picking.


The success of voice hinges on achieving performance in terms of speed and quality of voice recognition and communication between host and user. Maximum performance is achieved through alignment with individual employees.

Voice is a self-learning system that features 40 languages. Employees create a personal voice profile once in the desired language. The system stores his or her language, pronunciation and accent. This personal profile provides faster and better recognition than the generic profile used by speaker-independent systems.
