Use of language in warehouse and logistics
The use of voice control in SAP Business One can take place on a wide variety of levels.
Tasks such as picking, receiving, put-away, packing and shipping are expected to be made easier through the use of voice control. For example, when SAP Business One receives a work order, Honeywell's Guided Work Solutions translates that order into a series of optimised interactive voice commands so that employees can use their eyes and hands fully on their tasks.
Android platform for warehouse and logistics
The software is compatible with a wide range of hardware. Not only Honeywell mobile devices are included, but also other Android mobile devices. The Android-platform also supports multiple interfaces such as voice, scanning and keyboard.
When - from which version
Despite a widespread press release and message of greeting from SAP Senior Vice President Luis Murguia at the Honeywell websiteIt is not yet known when and with which version of SAP Business One the solution for warehouse and logistics will be delivered.
It will also be exciting to see how open the solution will be for the various requirements of SAP Business One customers and their logistics. From our experience with Scanner-based solutions for warehouses and logistics, the needs and processes are very different.
