Vocollect, Inc., the world leader in Voice-Directed Work, has announced successful collaboration with two leading handheld and wearable device suppliers aimed at delivering on its strategy to make its highly successful Vocollect Voice applications available on multiple devices and platforms.
"Companies continue to experience significant improvements in speed, accuracy and worker satisfaction with Vocollect Voice applications throughout the global supply chain," said Roger Byford, Vocollect chief executive officer. "Expanding the number of devices that port Vocollect Voice will help us bring those benefits to an even broader group of end users," he said.
Recently the company joined forces with LXE, the leading manufacturer of rugged wireless computers that improve supply chain performance, as a strategic voice collaborator. "Our leading portfolio has been further strengthened with the addition of Vocollect Voice for the LXE MX7 handheld and LXE HX2 wearable devices," said Byford.
Vocollect's collaboration with partner Psion Teklogix (PTX) on the jointly developed WORKABOUT PRO-Voice multi-purpose data collection terminal ported with Vocollect Voice has equipped 630 workers last autumn at the UK retail giant Wilkinson. 2007 also saw the introduction of Vocollect Voice on to two Motorola platforms, the MC9090 rugged mobile computer and the Motorola WT4000 series of wearable computers.
"For the end customer, it's all about high performance, choice and flexibility, and sometimes that means customers want versatile, multi-purpose devices to achieve their operational goals," said Byford. "Such collaborations with Psion Teklogix, Motorola and LXE are ones we will continue to pursue in our mission to expand the penetration of Vocollect Voice around the world. "
