RDS Voice™ Process Automation Module

Lowers labor costs, increases productivity, accuracy, and profitability!

Real-time Distribution System, RDS™ Voice is superior technology for implementing lean, highly productive voice directed automated operations for manufacturingvoice directed picking numina group and distribution. It is built with the world’s leading speaker independent voice engine that requires zero operator voice training regardless of background noise! Operators are productive in minutes compared to several hours using obsolete speaker-dependent legacy voice platforms. It’s 7th generation speaker independent voice is proven to work in the noisy work environments!


RDS™ Voice improves accuracy to 99.99% in picking, kitting, receiving and replenishment applications. Simpler to use, faster to deploy, RDS™ Voice frequently provides ROI in less than a year. RDS™ Voice increases productivity rates by 30 to 50% or better in picking, receiving, and inspection applications.

RDS™ Voice includes our labor tracking and reporting module. The reporting toolset measures worker productivity across different tasks, and tracks labor to settable work standards. The software provides the tools to measure and report operation and worker productivity.

More than Just Voice- It’ a Complete Automation Solution!
