Move Your Business Forward
In demanding warehouse and distribution center (DC) environments, your operations and workforce are constantly on the move — and under pressure. From the unrelenting fulfillment expectations of ever-expanding inventories and faster, accurate deliveries to the challenges of finding, training and retaining an increasingly scarce and diverse workforce, you need flexible solutions to help you keep pace and deliver ongoing productivity improvements.
Honeywell Voice does just that, giving you best-in-class, voice-directed workflow processes designed to streamline your mobile workforce. Simply put, we move people — safely and efficiently. As a result, you achieve higher levels of productivity and accuracy in your operations — helping you to run a smarter, better business.
Driving profitable growth and streamlining existing processes while reducing costs and implementing new technologies is a balancing act. With our deep supply chain industry and process expertise, the Honeywell Voice team can help you identify ways to reduce your operating costs — while supporting workforce performance improvements. To date, we’ve successfully onboarded Honeywell Voice to almost one million mobile workers around the world.
Empower Your Mobile Workforce
Built to guide mobile workers throughout facilities, Honeywell Voice gets them where they need to be, when they need to be there. The solution is based on an ergonomic headset, wearable mobile device and advanced software that utilizes “text-to-speech” and “speech-to-text” technology (currently available in 41 languages). By converting warehouse management system information to speech, Honeywell Voice provides audible instructions to warehouse operators — directing them to the next location and guiding them through the required tasks or steps to complete processes, such as picking, inventory replenishment, maintenance and repairs.
Honeywell Voice safely directs your associates — allowing them to work both hands-free and eyes-free — through mobile workflows to minimize steps and maximize operational efficiencies. As each step is completed, the worker speaks a verbal confirmation into the microphone. The Honeywell Voice software converts this spoken information into data and communicates it back to your host system to provide real-time productivity (and inventory) updates
Integrate With Your Host System
Completely flexible for operations large and small, Honeywell Voice software can integrate with host systems of all types — from legacy enterprise resource planning (ERP) software, major warehouse execution systems (WES) and warehouse management software (WMS) platforms to customized systems, SAP or Microsoft 360. This seamless integration allows Honeywell Voice to assume management of existing processes and introduce new, optimized workflows — all of which are captured into your preferred data management platform.
Make Informed Decisions
Data related to worker performance, throughput targets and inventory is collected and analyzed in real time. The software leverages this data to deliver insights about workplace efficiency improvements and provide predictive analytics recommendations about workload distribution — all of which you can use to make informed decisions and meet anticipated demands.
Drive Operational Improvements
Whether picking products, repairing equipment, or learning a new job, associates often have their hands full of scanners, devices, checklists, procedures and other impediments that compete for their attention — instead of focusing on the task at hand. With Honeywell Voice, their hands and eyes are freed, letting them work more safely, efficiently and accurately. The results? Up to a 30% increase in productivity, accuracy rates up to 99.99%, and a safer, more satisfied workforce with higher retention rates.
Streamline Equipment Maintenance and Inspections
Uptime is imperative. Every minute that a technician spends on fixing a critical piece of equipment is another minute of downtime and lost productivity for your operations. What’s more, many companies and industries must meet precise regulatory and/or process compliance standards. With Honeywell Voice-directed workflows guiding associates step-by-step through maintenance, inspection or repair procedures, planned and unplanned disruptions are minimized — and compliance is assured. Honeywell Voice streamlines repair and inspection processes while documenting every step to ensure strict compliance with regulations or standard operating procedures (SOPs).
