A seamless warehouse operation has already been achieved with the implementation of Logistics Vision Suite by Mantis.
Argosy saw an increase of business and therefore needed faster order fulfilment processes.
Having recognized the value of Logistics Vision Suite Argosy has decided to further invest in Mantis' Automations for Logistics Vision Suite. Pick by Voice was implemented to accommodate hands-free and eyes free picking to increase picking speed and maximize picking accuracy. The solution is based on Honewell Vocollect hardware and middleware software integrated with Logistics Vision Suite.
Logistics Vision Suite and Pick to Voice project was implemented by Mantis Cyprus.
