Heavey RF in €250k voice tech deal with beverage firm Gleeson Group

Mobile tech provider Heavey RF has won a €250,000 contract to provide advanced voice warehouse technologies to beverage business Gleeson Group, which makes and distributes Finches, Blossom Hill, Faustino, Bavaria lager and Tipperary Water.

Heavey RF replaced Gleeson Group’s manual system with voice-directed work technology from its long-time partner, Vocollect.

More than 80 end users across various workflows are now able to perform their duties both eyes-free and hands-free, streamlining their tasks and creating a less stressful working environment.

Since going live with the first wave of implementations, Gleeson is already realising a 25pc productivity gain in both its bonded and non-bonded distribution facilities.

Processes have now been standardised throughout the organisation that tackle stringent customs requirements and maintain the necessary restricted access to particular products.

Patrick Tynan, Gleeson Group project manager, said the deployment has resulted in 11.3pc error reduction.
