Voice Warehouse Execution System

Work Smarter, Not Harder

For me, the report customization aspect was huge. Some of the functionality we get with our voice pick technology we were unable to get within our WMS. Having the real time visibility into the pick process was critical.” – 3PL Engineering Director

How it Works

The Smart Labor system provides users insight into historical labor and task data to enable you to optimize your operation.  Data includes time spent retrieving work, time spent walking from one location to another, time spent picking a particular item, as well as the quantity picked, etc.  Any specific activity type that a picker performs can be tracked; from delivering totes/pallets to taking breaks.  A web-based dashboard and reporting toolset allows you to visualize the new data being collected. Analysis can then be performed on this data in many ways to produce charts and reports for comparative analysis.

The ‘smart’ side of the Smart Labor system comes from the ability to take information from thousands of data points and analyze from any angle. 

Get Real Time Analytics, Like:

Pick rates by picker/zone/shift, etc.

  •         Top 10 most frequently shorted locations
  •         Top 10 most frequently picked locations
  •         Percent of time spent retrieving work vs. travel time vs. picking time
  •         Time spent on breaks by picker
  •         And much more

Using the Data for Your Business

The travel time and pick rate information can be used to determine picking goal rates that are based on real information instead of guesses.  

With the data at your fingertips, Smart Labor can be the vehicle to continuous improvement within your operation. Wouldn’t you want to know that re-adjusting the locations of your fast movers more often would provide a significant increase to efficiency? Smart Labor allows you to break down not only how many items are picked but how much time it takes per item. Seeing outliers can help identify hidden issues- for instance, some items are better picked from higher locations than others. The possibilities are endless with the ways you can leverage the data. 

The Smart Labor system, combined with a premier warehouse voice picking solution by Mountain Leverage, provides the tools for your operation to excel.

RF Scanner Compatible

Smart Labor can also work with voice implementations which integrate through existing RF scanner-based systems. As the voice functionality is developed for your operation, the key facts are identified and sent to the Smart Labor system in the background, without affecting the performance of the voice picking system.
