NA 2010, slated for April 26-29, will showcase more than 500 exhibits and include a comprehensive educational conference. The event, held at the I-X Center in Cleveland, will offer an array of products to help improve productivity at your company.

Equipped with voice-directed picking and labor management modules, the RDS 6.0 warehouse control system supports voice-over IP technology. The application for voice-directed picking integrates with hands-free SKU, lot or location bar code capture, providing pick-and-pack validation in a single process. The function combines operator message displays and pick to light modules to automate the pick-and-pack process. Usable on a variety of devices, the operator wireless terminal is deployed as a thin client on CE or Windows Mobile to run the voice engine. The integrated labor management module tracks worker productivity, providing order picking labor data and order auditing reports.
