Galipo Foods, one of the largest food distribution companies in South Australia, teamed up with VoiceID and Honeywell Sensing and Productivity Solutions to upgrade its warehouse technology and increase productivity by 80 percent.

As part of the upgrade project, Galipo Foods updated its existing voice technology system with the latest advancements in Honeywell’s voice solutions, including the VocollectTM A730 device with an integrated hands-free scanner, Vocollect SRX2 wireless Headset and VoiceLink software to connect with Galipo’s system in real time.

“The priority for Galipo Foods was upgrading its picking process without having to undergo a complete system replacement, as this meant a lower initial investment and therefore a quicker return on investment,” said Rizan Mawzoon, director of sales for VoiceID.  

“Galipo had already made an initial investment in Honeywell’s Vocollect voice solutions. By introducing the VoiceID connector solution and Honeywell A730 devices, we were able to complete a straightforward upgrade of the voice technology they were using, with great results in terms of productivity increases.”

“We are very excited that our upgrade to the latest Honeywell voice technology has delivered such dramatic results, with our throughput increasing from 50 million to 65 million units processed each year. With more areas to be brought in under this technology, we will be able to move 90 million units by January 2016,” said Nathan Narayanan, general manager at Galipo Foods. “And the best part is that our productivity growth has been achieved without adding additional workers, which has saved us money.”

Voted as best distributor of the year in Australia in 2014 and South Australian distributor of the year in 2014 and 2015, Galipo Foods offers its customers biscuits, soups and gravies, sauces and dressings, condiments, oil, pasta, dairy, jams, meat, cereals, bread, seafood, pastries, herbs and spices, grains, drinks, eggs, syrups and more. Operating in the competitive food service space, it is vital that Galipo Foods’ warehouse operates at an optimum level in order to deliver the right product, at the right time and in the right condition.

“We are very pleased to see that Galipo Foods’ voice technology upgrade is already helping them increase productivity and the accuracy of their order fulfilment,” said Paul Phillips, ANZ regional manager, Honeywell Sensing and Productivity Solutions. “With increased productivity and accuracy, Galipo Foods can now be confident they are offering the highest level of customer service at all times.”
