Voxware - Leading Provider of Voice Software for the Supply Chain

Voice In The Warehouse: The Hidden Decision The business value of voice technology is now well-established. Warehouses that rely on manual handling of products, such as case- and each-picking operations, and those with demanding physical environments such as chilled and frozen areas, can realise significant savings in cost through the implementation of voice-directed logistics. But in a rush to cash in on these benefits, many organisations have implemented voice systems that carry with them the seeds of downstream trouble. This only becomes evident when changes to the operation or the supporting infrastructure are needed. Executives who evaluate voice solutions may not realise it, but when they select a voice system they are also making a major "hidden" decision. It is a decision that strongly affects future flexibility and cost. It is the decision between an open versus a proprietary voice solution.

And while the payback track record of voice solutions has indeed been impressive, what is often obscured is the high cost of these systems.

The argument seems to be: "Who cares how much it costs or how complicated it is if the payback is so strong?" People should be asking: "How much more could we save with a reasonably priced voice solution?" Let's take a look at the underlying causes of the high cost of voice in the supply chain, and why open SOA-based software – specifically Voxware 3 – is the key to reducing that cost and unlocking additional benefits from voice technology.
