Goya Foods Chooses Wavelink for Voice-enabled Warehouse Picking Solution Wavelink's Speakeasy software enables Goya Foods' employees to be safer and more efficient on the job
SALT LAKE CITY, July 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Goya Foods has chosen Wavelink's (http://www.wavelink.com/) Speakeasy voice-enabled emulation as a key element in its new warehouse management system. Speakeasy provides a more flexible, efficient, affordable and safer alternative to traditional warehouse picking.
Goya Foods is the largest Hispanic-owned food company in the U.S. and is a leader in Latin-American foods. The company makes and distributes more than 2,000 products globally and has a total of 13 distribution centers.
Goya needed to redesign its entire site management process. In particular, it needed a way to increase accuracy and reduce errors.
"We needed to be more efficient across the board," said Luis Ramos, general manager at Goya Foods. "Speakeasy's voice enabling technology gives picking greater efficiency, more accuracy and is safer than traditional picking. Speakeasy has a low cost of ownership and was easy to deploy across our enterprise as the software is 100 percent hardware agnostic. We went from 40 – 60 mispicks a night to almost non-existent mispicks a night. It fit our needs perfectly."
Goya Foods implemented Speakeasy at its Prince George, Va. site, a designated trial operation site for all Goya warehouses. The company plans to implement Speakeasy in several additional locations by the end of 2012 and eventually implement it company-wide.
"Our employees embraced the change," said Ramos. "They immediately saw the safety and efficiency benefits of voice-picking and understood that it ultimately gave them more quality time off the job. We are confident Speakeasy will be welcomed with open arms at our other locations."

"Speakeasy's text-to-speech and speech-to-text technology gives companies exactly what they need in voice software with tremendous flexibility. Also, the flexibility of the product doesn't require a user to be assigned to a specific device and can be used across multiple shifts. Any individual can pick up a device, no matter their native language and begin working immediately. This was important for Goya Foods where both English and Spanish are spoken."
