Demand Increasing for Voice
and Mobile Applications

Warehouses are realizing that voice and mobile technologies are helping to improve productivity and
efficiency and simplify tasks for warehouse staff personnel. The original
programs which were used for voice recognition were limited to picking. With
the advent of enhanced computer technologies, voice technologies are being used
in multiple worker activities including picking, putaway, replenishment and
shipping.

 With the usage growth of iPad’s, PC tablets and smartphones, the popularity of mobile systems is rapidly
accelerating with both warehouse managers and floor workers. More and more
systems are being designed with applications built to thrive in a mobile world.
Mobile alerting is an example of a feature that has changed how productivity is
monitored in a warehouse. Example: If a picker is taking longer to complete a
task he can get a mobile alert on his iPad, PC tablet or smartphone.

Voice and mobile applications are also resulting in warehouse staff being more proactive and less reactive.
Mobile software is helping to increase the visibility of warehouse operations
among workers and making it easier to achieve overall warehouse efficiency
standards.
