Datalogic announces Voice-Picking Solutions for Mobile Computers

Improving productivity and efficiency of the warehouse picking process

July 23, 2013 - Eugene, OR USA - Datalogic is pleased to announce the availability of voice-picking solutions for their mobile computer lines. The Lynx™ PDA, Elf™ PDA, Memor™ pocket mobile computer, as well as the Skorpio™ X3 mobile computer, all have received certification for the Wavelink Speakeasy™ voice-picking application, and can now be complemented by industrial-grade headsets to achieve higher efficiency in warehouse environments.


Accurate and efficient inventory picking is essential in today's technology driven markets to meet the high expectations of consumers. Real-time inventory counts and order fulfillments are essential to stay competitive in today's vertical sectors. Inventory management through manual counts and printed lists are rapidly being replaced by the use of voice technology resulting in a streamlined process. A 10% - 20% improvement of productivity in warehouse management systems may be realized through the use of voice-picking technology.

The Datalogic headset is specifically designed for voice-picking and speech recognition applications in distribution centers and other high-noise industrial settings. The Wavelink Speakeasy system does not require any additional enterprise hardware or server installation but is able to be implemented on the backbone of pre-existing ecosystems. As opposed to various custom voice systems, the Datalogic picking solution implementing the Wavelink Speakeasy system does not call for specific unit voice training. Instead it allows for the recognition of various voices, accents and dialects.

Datalogic's ability to combine voice technology with bar code scanning is ultimately expected to deliver an intuitive solution for faster pick-rate, fewer errors, and a safer working environment. Usage of the headset offers increased safety for operators by allowing hands-free mobility and ability to keep eyes up instead of looking between stock shelves, pick lists, and mobile device.

"Datalogic is happy to offer this accessory to our mobile computer line, that will offer our customers the benefit of improving the workflow during the picking process," stated Tom Burke, VP of Product Marketing - Mobile Computers. "Datalogic strives to develop products that combine both innovative technology and the recognized needs of our customers."
