Our recently awarded contract for the supply and support of Vocollect Voice at one of Africa’s largest retailers bears testimony to the benefits that voice-directed work solutions bring to the workplace.”

Vocollect Voice Solutions operate using voice prompts and worker responses, where the worker wears a headset and the data is seamlessly integrated with existing WMS and ERP IT investments. “Vocollect solutions minimise the need for screens or keyboards because voice is able to more efficiently confirm steps in a workflow process, allowing workers to operate with both hands-free and seamlessly integrate with scanning equipment,” said Kessels.
