Radio Terminal Systems and Intermec will jointly sponsor and exhibit at RWTA’s “Boom, Crash, Opera” Annual conference next week.

The theme of this year’s event to be held in Brisbane is to reflect on the boom times and difficult times, but focus efforts on the opportunities of the future.

RTS will be demonstrating how voice picking can optimally operate in a warehouse environment utilising the Intermec CK3.

RTS selected the Intermec voice solution as it is extremely flexible and scalable, allowing the RTS support team to customise their software to suit specific client application quickly.

RTS have built software and services for the CK3 product that extend on how voice technology is utilised, by adapting it to drive further efficiencies from the product. For example, at one site, the RTS software has reduced the amount of voice commands that an operator needs to confirm by using alternative methods for confirmation such as scanning.

Reducing the time that the operator needs to engage with the device through the voice commands dramatically increases efficiency when picking products, as there is no time required for the operator to confirm each step.

Using the Intermec device also doubles as a regular data terminal and the voice can be easily disabled. Other products in the market were only built for voice application.

Adam Barnier, Systems Engineering Manager from Intermec will present on the technology next Tuesday at the RWTA conference. He will show how it differentiates from other products in the market and is easily integrated within existing environments with a low cost of entry.

RTS has become renowned for building and integrating robust and ruggedised radio terminals and barcode scanners, for warehousing and materials handling applications.

RTS have been developing custom solutions for many clients including Amcor, Murray Goulburn, Versacold, Oxford Cold Storage, Montague Cold Storage, Watson Cold Storage, Peerless Foods, PFD Food Services, P Pullar & Co and Secon Freight Logistics.
