Sears Holdings to Continue its Work with Speech Interface Design to Expand its Use of Honeywell Vocollect Voice-Directed Picking

PITTSBURGH and HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill., Oct. 13, 2015 /CNW/ -- Speech Interface Design (SID) today announced that it will work with Sears Holdings Corporation to implement Honeywell Vocollect Voice directed picking solutions in two of the integrated retailer's Regional Specialty Distribution Centers (RSCs) and its largest Retail Distribution Center (RDC) in the coming months.

This engagement comes after successful deployments by SID in January 2015 at two of Sears Holdings' Retail Replenishment Centers (RRCs). SID also performed consultative analysis work for Sears Holdings to project the value and ROI for voice picking solutions in its RSCs and RDCs. Additional RRC and RDC sites are currently targeted for implementation in 2016.

"Sears Holdings has recognized the benefits of voice within two of our RRCs through increased picking accuracy and productivity, reduced worker training times and enhanced worker satisfaction," said Steve Rutkowski, senior director of Logistics Systems at Sears Holdings. "Speech Interface Design played a key role by providing expert help implementing voice as well as consultations related to systems/operational issues."  

"We are committed to helping Sears Holdings achieve higher customer service levels while reducing their operating costs by replacing their paper and pick-to-light based systems with Honeywell Vocollect Voice directed work solutions," said Ahmed Reza, president of Speech Interface Design.
