IBCS Poland Sp. z o.o. [Ltd], in cooperation with HIT-Kody Kreskowe, delivered devices and licensed administration license for voice system implemented in Raben Logistic warehouse in Błonie. Implementation of the system, with support of IBCS Poland experts, was performed by a company from Poznań that integrates automatic identification systems, HIT-Kody Kreskowe. Voice system has significantly improved and optimized functioning of Raben warehouse.
Raben Logistics Poland warehouse that operates supply processes for one of cash and carry chains has the area of 15 000m2.
Voice system, whose task was to simplify picking processes and increase their effectiveness, was implemented in cooperation with HIT-Kody Kreskowe, who had implemented JDA WMS solution in this location before. The implementation of voice system took place in the first quarter of 2015, and start up of the system was performed immediately after the implementation finished.
Talkman A700 series terminals with necessary accessories were used to operate voice picking system. The system is managed by a WMS module, configured by experts from HIT-Kody Kreskowe. As Raben employs foreign workers in their warehouse, the system works in bilingual mode – in Polish and in Russian. Multi-picking model (grid-picking mode) is used, which means that picking process is multi-staged and it is possible to pick shipments to many stores simultaneously by one operator.
Vocollect voice system has significantly contributed to productivity and picking accuracy increase.
