-- With their new voice data collection solution, Gateway Distribution will be able to eliminate paper based processes, streamline order picking and maintain real-time inventory accuracy.
According to Brian Chapman, Gateway Distribution’
s IT Manager, "RFgen’s voice data collection capabilities were the best solution to address all of our major challenges. Our warehouse personnel will soon be guided by voice prompts to pick orders which will reduce order fulfillment time significantly. Our cycle counts will no longer be delayed with written counts followed by manual data entry into our Oracle® JD Edwards EnterpriseOne ERP system. Within a few short months of implementation, I’m confident we will see reduced errors, faster pick times and real-time inventory visibility."
