IRVINE, Calif., Nov. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- DecisionPoint™ Systems, Inc. (OTCBB: DPSI, DPSIP), a leading provider and integrator of Enterprise Mobility and Wireless Applications, announced today that ABC Stores selected DecisionPoint to automate their Hawaiian warehouse operation using Wavelink's Speakeasy voice picking technology.
As a retailer devoted to convenience for the visiting traveler with a variety of merchandise from drugs and cosmetics to souvenirs and grocery items, picking small items accounts for a large percentage of the inventory movement. Employing voice technology to their picking needs helped reduce picking errors and increased picking efficiency by 40%. The increased efficiency enabled warehouse operations to provide a higher level of service to the stores, reducing labor costs in both the warehouse and the stores. With the success of this implementation, Mark Flores the ABC Stores warehouse manager, is now looking to deploy Wavelink Speakeasy technology to their remote distribution centers.
"We were very happy and pleased with the response and support provided by the Wavelink and DecisionPoint Systems teams during the Speakeasy implementation process," said Louise Yim, ABC Stores, Business Technology Project Manager.
DecisionPoint SVP Software Services, Greg Henry said one of the key goals of our work for ABC Stores was to increase worker productivity and eliminate paperwork while modernizing the operations.
"It's important for an organization like ABC Stores, as it is for most businesses, to increase the efficiency and accuracy of their operations while improving the performance of its workforce," Henry said. "Our goal was to install a voice picking solution for ABC Stores that was easy to learn and use, and helped the entire organization to be more successful. Working with our partner, Wavelink, we accomplished this goal. We are excited and honored to work with such an outstanding and successful retailer."
