Honeywell expands portfolio in ANZ

Honeywell has announced that two popular voice solutions are now available in Australian and New Zealand warehouses. According to the company, these solutions will increase productivity and reduce errors for local distribution centres.

Honeywell will now offers its Guided Work Solutions software and Vocollect A700x Series of mobile devices to the continent, to help businesses improve efficiency through hands-free, eyes-up solutions.

“For more than 20 years, distribution centers globally have achieved significant productivity and accuracy gains by empowering their workers with Honeywell Vocollect voice solutions. As we expand throughout the Australian market, we expect to see the same productivity and accuracy results in warehouses and distribution centers using these solutions,” David Hudson, APAC general manager of voice solutions for Honeywell Safety and Productivity Solutions said.

Guided Work Solutions
Designed for the small-to medium-sized warehouse and distribution centre, Honeywell’s Guided Work Solutions is a software application that runs on the AndroidTM operating system and is based on the company’s industry-leading Vocollect voice technology.

The worker-focused software is currently integrated with the Microsoft Dynamics 365 and SAP Business One enterprise resource planning platforms and can connect to other backend systems.

Easily configured and quickly deployed, this solution guides workers through a variety of warehouse tasks, from picking to receiving, replenishment and put-away. Results have shown up to 35% productivity gains, 50% error reductions and 20% fewer safety incidents – all while cutting training time in half.

“With Guided Work Solutions, we can help small- and medium-sized enterprises smoothly and quickly deploy the same voice-directed technology used by the world’s largest and most complex fulfilment operations,” David said.

The software runs on a wide range of compatible hardware, including Honeywell’s mobile computers, as well as other Android mobile devices. The Android platform provides support for multiple interfaces including voice, scanning and keypad.

Vocollect A700x Series
Built on more than 20 years of distribution center technology for voice-directed work, Honeywell’s popular Vocollect A700x Series empowers mobile workers in distribution centers to operate hands-free with voice technology. The technology benefits both the worker, with intuitive and ergonomic wearable technology, and the DC operation, with outstanding productivity and business value.
