Voxware, Inc., a supplier of software for voice-driven warehousing operations, has announced the launch of its Voice Picking Blog, a resource sharing the latest developments in voice picking technology and trends. The blog is dedicated to chronicling the market forces and software innovations ushering in a new generation of voice picking technology and fueling a wave of adoption. It will feature regular posts on emerging technology for voice directed picking; trends and insights regarding voice picking system selection, implementation, and integration; and commentary on timely topics and industry news. Regular blog contributors reflect a cross section of voice picking implementation, technology and marketing experience.

“Voice picking technology has evolved tremendously in recent years, with a profound shift away from custom, proprietary technology in favor of open voice solutions that maximize flexibility and control,” said Scott Yetter, Voxware president and CEO. “Voxware’s Voice Picking Blog serves as an important vehicle for communicating timely insights as voice technology enters the mainstream and continues to evolve at a rapid pace.”

The blog seeks to be an industry resource for the latest developments in voice picking technology and trends.  It is currently being populated by submissions from Voxware contributors, but comments and guest submissions are encouraged.  The most recent blog posts address the differences between voice recognition technology for warehouses and call centers, the financial impact of picking accuracy, and the benefits of combining voice picking with worker incentives.
