Vocollect, a business unit of Intermec, Inc. has announced a partnership with Dexion to advance the company's sales further into the Australian and New Zealand markets. This partnership is the latest move by Vocollect to expand and develop new channels in the Asia Pacific region for retail, grocery, food & beverage, apparel, third party logistics, automotive and pharmaceuticals.
"Currently, Vocollect and our channel partners enable over 350,000 workers worldwide to distribute more than US$3.5 billion worth of goods every day,” said Vance Lau, vice president and managing director of Vocollect Asia Pacific.
“Dexion's established network in the region is a welcomed addition, as we see the undeniable synergy between Vocollect's voice technologies and Dexion’s expertise, in particular its industrial division that is renowned for designing smart distribution solutions and integrating them into a customer's business."
"Dexion is excited about adding Vocollect Voice to our portfolio of paperless technologies and MHE solutions currently being offered. We know that Vocollect Voice delivers stronger bottom-line results by improving an organisation's throughput and productivity, accuracy and customer service, and most importantly, reducing overall operating costs,” said Peter Farmakis, chief executive officer of Dexion said.
“This partnership, therefore, allows us to provide voice as part of an integrated solution that includes pallet storage, materials handling solutions and paperless inventory management systems, availing our customers with the best technologies in the market today."
Vocollect Voice seamlessly integrates with all major existing WMS or ERP systems including SAP, enabling companies to leverage existing technology investment, and it supports most languages, dialects and accents.
Its speech recognition technology and built-for-purpose Talkman mobile computing appliances are enhanced with the ability to differentiate ambient noises, such as forklift beeps, pallet drops, fan and freezer noises and miscellaneous conversations.
With voice-centric distribution evolving into a key advantage for businesses in an increasingly competitive arena, these benefits and more are what Vocollect and Dexion will be delivering to warehousing and distribution customers in Australia and New Zealand.
