Vocollect has introduced its Vehicle Mount Talkman voice-enabled solution. The new offering, which enables vehicle-mounted employees to receive work directions via voice, eliminates the need for paper, screens, and keyboards. It is designed to help companies accelerate productivity and accuracy, improve ergonomics, and reduce operating costs for vehicle-based workflows in the warehouse or DC.
With traditional scanner- and paper-based vehicle-mount terminal solutions, workers must take time to look at and touch a keyboard, or read a display or paper list, which is both inefficient and distracting. And handheld devices used in a vehicle-based workflow can be lost or damaged, as workers transition from driving the vehicle to performing a task. As a voice-centric solution, Vocollect's Vehicle Mount Talkman eliminates the need for workers to look away from their vehicles' paths to receive assignments, send data, or manage a handheld. As a result, it boosts overall productivity and accuracy. Vehicle-based workflows that may benefit from this voice-centric solution include put-away, replenishment, loading, and selection.
Vocollect's Vehicle Mount Talkman solution is based on the company's Vocollect Voice software, a Talkman T5 voice appliance, vehicle-mounting hardware, power adapters, and an SRX wireless headset. With the Talkman mounted to (and powered from) the vehicle, users can move freely within a 20- to 30-foot radius of the vehicle to perform their tasks, communicating with the Talkman via the wireless SRX headset.
