According to Stigen, the new system will work with the warehouse's existing hand-held scanner system, which will re- sult in a much lower implementation cost for the project than if new scanners had to be purchased. In addition to the conve- nience factor of voice-picking, the new system is expected to improve production as well. "We expect this new system to greatly improve our ability to ship and receive orders, and it could help us be up to more than 10% more effi cient than we are today," Stigen says.
