Summary of Innovation

Optimal Picking has all the capabilities of proven voice picking systems while also addressing the needs of the entire picking process. It generates ideal pallet designs with unmatched flexibility. And it ensures that those ideal designs are properly communicated to the picker by leveraging the use of 3D images for the picker at each step of the picking process.

With Optimal Picking, pickers no longer have to design and keep redesigning a pallet as they add cases to it. No time is wasted rearranging cases on the pallet when using Optimal Picking. The ideal design has already been calculated by the system. This graphical guidance ensures that the picker only touches cases one time: when the case is picked.

When compared to voice picking systems that don’t offer 3D images:
• Pallets are built 5 to 10 percent faster
• Pallet height is reduced by 5 to 15 percent
• Pallet stability is improved, reducing product damage and safety risks
• Touching cases more than once is eliminated.

Innovation Statement

Optimal Picking is the first solution that merges all the features needed to truly optimize picking operations: pallet/cart design, voice picking, and 3D images to guide pickers. With Optimal Picking, even novice pickers can build perfect pallets in record time.


Optimal Picking generates ideal pallet designs that can take multiple criteria into account to address the needs of the entire supply chain and gives pickers the tools to build these pallets with maximum efficiency.
