AS Watson completes UK implementation Zetes 3i Voice

Zetes has completed implementation of its voice logistics system “3i Voice” for the distribution warehouse of Superdrug and Savers stores, both UK subsidiaries of AS Watson.
AS Watson has already equipped 270 order pickers in Netherlands, Poland and UK with Zetes 3i Voice working simultaneously.

Covering more than 750,000 sq ft, AS Watson’s warehouse in Dunstable is the main distribution centre for all items sold in Superdrug and Savers stores. Zetes’ 3i Voice enables the company to streamline its picking and logistics operations through the integration of wireless voice recognition technologies with its existing warehouse management system.

About three years ago, AS Watson engaged Zetes to develop and implement a “Retail Store Inventory Management System” in all of its European shops. Zetes developed a system based on a wireless handheld terminal enabling work in 16 different countries, including some of its retail-chains in Asia Pacific. Store employees use the terminal for all sorts of logistics in-store activity, like receiving or sending of goods, checking stocks or label printing.
