4 Ways to Apply Voice Technology to Your Warehouse

Posted by Advanced Mobile Group on Aug 30, 2021 1:12:39 PM

Many of us are just getting used to asking our smartphones for directions or coming to terms with Alexa being a fixture in the home. Voice recognition technology has been around for several decades and is making people’s lives easier and more enjoyable. But, what about in the workplace? And, particularly, in the warehouse environment? 

Believe it or not, voice technology has been a fixture in some warehouses for about two decades. But, similar to those flip phones, what was considered high-tech voice technology in the 90s looks much different today. Here are some of the ways voice technology can benefit your warehouse and a list of the ways you can apply it to your operations.

New Tricks Learned for 2020’s Ecommerce Boom

Posted by Advanced Mobile Group on Nov 16, 2020 11:27:19 PM

2020, for all its faults, is the year that almost every company and business “decided” to finally jump into Ecommerce. This includes not only selling online directly to end users, but the various means of getting the product into their hands including in-store fulfillment. While Retailers’ online sites in 2018 totaled sales over $400 billion, they will far exceed that in 2020 and are expected to grow to over $700 billion in 2020, with some of the fastest growth coming in food and beverage (23.4% - 58.5%) and health and beauty increasing from 16.6% to 32.4%. (source: eMarketer.com). That pace along with the expected drop in total brick-and-mortar sales means Ecommerce will make up over 14% of total retail sales in 2020.

Mastering In-Store Fulfillment With Voice Technology

Posted by Advanced Mobile Group on May 19, 2020 8:51:29 AM

When the states start their respective lockdowns back in March of this year, one recurring theme we discussed internally was that businesses that had not previously developed any competency in direct online sales would have to get good at it very quickly or suffer from possibly losing all access to their customers. With almost three months under our belts in learning how to navigate this new reality, it’s clear that the concept of turning a retail space into a fulfillment center is here to stay. Whether you call it “E-Commerce”, “Click-and-Collect”, “Ship-From-Store” or “Curbside Pickup” or something else, 2020 has shown that there is both a LOT more that can be managed from your store-front AND the demand to justify it as well. According to some very recent data from VISA International, the pandemic has accelerated a growing reluctance to use cash, and in turn creating huge increases in use of online ordering previously unseen. Their data reflects this trend worldwide – with E-Commerce sales rising in the US by 49% in April (versus the baseline in March prior to most states shutting down) and in other regions like Latin America where 13 million users tried online ordering for the first time already this year.

The Utility of Voice Collection in Extreme Environments

Posted by Advanced Mobile Group on May 31, 2018 7:00:00 AM

On a recent visit to a global metalworks facility on the East Coast, our team discovered something that forgers and steel operations, which are known for a work environment dealing with extreme heat, have in common with cold storage and frozen operations. 

At first glance, you would assume that there is nothing these two environments have in common. After all, no one packs a bag the same way for a ski vacation and a beach vacation. And if challenged to identify a common solution between an ice cream storage facility and a rolled steel mill, we’d probably be hard-pressed to think of one. But there is a big one.

What they have in common is Gloves.
