Goya Foods Chooses Wavelink for Voice-enabled Warehouse Picking Solution

SALT LAKE CITY – July 25, 2012 – Goya Foods has chosen Wavelink's 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 US 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, and 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.”

Wavelink, recently acquired by LANDesk Software is based in Salt Lake City, Utah and has been leading in enterprise mobility management since 1992. It provides industry standard solutions. The company has 15,000 customers, is in 85 countries and Wavelink software runs on more than 7,500,000 devices worldwide.

“Our products provide easy implementation and management and can be deployed within any size enterprise,” said Stephen Bemis, vice president of worldwide sales at Wavelink. “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.”
