When you think of “voice technology”, you probably think of all the ways voice has impacted your personal life. You can ask your smartphone a question and get an answer in seconds. You can call your bank or airline and complete an entire transaction without ever talking to a person. You can ask your home assistant to dim the lights, change the channel, or turn up the thermostat in your house. Many of us also rely on voice directions in the form of GPS to get us from point A to point B.
While all these are great examples of voice technology, voice is being used for much more than personal use. Most notably, voice is being used to improve the supply chain, improving picking speeds, warehouse safety, and much more.
When considering voice for the warehouse, it is easy to draw comparisons to voice technology like Siri, Alexa, and Cortana. While these personal assistants also use voice technology to make your life easier, there are a few key ways they differ from a warehouse voice solution, like Vocollect Voice.
