Honeywell integrates AI into its guided work solutions to improve retail performance

Honeywell Guided Work Solutions’ AI-driven speech technology enables in-store associates to perform tasks like click-and-collect order fulfillment

Honeywell has announced an update to incorporate artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning into its Guided Work Solutions to help bring greater operational efficiency and better shopper experiences to retailers in today’s competitive landscape.

Honeywell Guided Work Solutions’ AI-driven speech technology enables in-store associates to perform tasks like click-and-collect order fulfillment, shelf restocking and returns processing with speed and efficiency. The development of an AI-enhanced solution to streamline retail operations also supports Honeywell’s portfolio alignment to three compelling megatrends: automation, the future of aviation, and energy transition.

By combining headset-enabled speech direction with software that offers insights and analytics built on Honeywell Forge architecture, the updated solution walks retail associates through workflows in real-time. Associates simply talk into a hands-free headset and then receive specific directions and confirmation they are selecting the right items. With the integration of AI, the solution can understand employees’ speech in more than 48 different languages, despite variations in tone, dialect, and pronunciation.

“The retail landscape has undergone a significant transformation, particularly with trends like buy online, pick up in-store, and the advent of highly personalized shopping experiences,” said David Barker, president of Honeywell Productivity Solutions and Services. “As retailers seek ways to improve their operational performance and enhance the customer experience, Guided Work Solutions is the ideal tool to accomplish these goals. It harnesses the strengths of AI technology to empower retail associates to serve in-store customers in a more efficient manner.”
