SAP-certified voice directed picking solution delivered by Optiscan Group is an important link in Finnfrost´s unbroken chain of frozen food. This is the world´s first SAP-certified voice solution utilizing the Vocollect VoiceLink system. The implementation of this system is completed and it is currently fully operational.
Finnfrost´s operations are managed by the SAP system tailored for the frozen food business. During spring 2008 the system has been developed further by implementing a warehouse picking system based on voice technology (Vocollect VoiceLink WCS for SAP).
Globally it is the first live VoiceLink for SAP project. Although Finnfrost´s requirements for this system were extremely high, the project itself and its results have met the initial expectations.
Voice technology is used in warehouse operations to increase efficiency and productivity. It simultaneously improves the accuracy of the picking and speeds up the working process. In addition to financial benefits, voice technology has a positive effect on occupational safety and ergonomics as well as end-customer satisfaction.
