Increased efficiency in warehouse operations
Pick-to-light systems aid in minimizing travel by employees in a warehouse or distribution center to pick up products, which, in turn helps in enhancing the efficiency of warehouse operations. A pick-to-light system guides employees to pick up the selected products through its digital light display. Also, a pick-to-light system provides the employee with an optimized path, and thus, it aids in increasing the throughput rates.
Emergence of pick-to-voice systems
In a high-intensity and complex warehouse, there can be multiple picking locations where the employee needs to be fast and accurate. In such places, a pick-to-voice system or voice-directed system can be used to improve the accuracy of picking and enhance the speed of picking by employees. Thus, the emergence of pick-to-voice systems will impact the demand for pick-to-light systems, hindering the growth of the market in focus during the forecast period.
