ATLANTA — March 15, 2016 — LogFire, the leading multi-tenant cloud-based supply chain solutions provider, and Wavelink, a leading provider of mission critical mobility management solutions, today announced a strategic partnership designed to streamline warehouse operations and increase work productivity.
LogFire will now offer Wavelink Speakeasy to companies needing a cost-effective way to enable mobile warehouse workers with voice picking technology. The combined solution pairs LogFire’s Warehouse Management Cloud with Wavelink Speakeasy. Wavelink complements LogFire’s data collection via barcode scanning, RFID and keyboard entry by facilitating voice-based data entry (speech-to-text) as well as voice direction from an application (text-to-speech).
Wavelink’s Speakeasy solution uses speech recognition to allow warehouse workers to communicate with LogFire’s Warehouse Management Cloud Solution. Warehouse employees interact with the system via a wireless, wearable computer with a headset and microphone to receive picking directives by voice, and verbally confirm their actions back to the system. The wearable computer, or voice terminal, communicates with the LogFire Warehouse Management Cloud to manage the picking and fulfillment of items throughout the distribution center.
“LogFire’s customers benefit from a solution that assists warehouses to reach faster pick times with greater order accuracy, which results in customer satisfaction and brand loyalty,” said Arun Murugan, chief technology officer at LogFire. “Wavelink can voice-enable any RF operation on the LogFire Warehouse Management Cloud, and it supports a wide range of mobile devices, eliminating a dependency on specific voice hardware that other solutions may require.”
Murugan continued, “We wanted a voice solution that was flexible and adaptable to the cloud without requiring complex integration. LogFire’s customers also demand a high level of security that Wavelink offers. The LogFire and Wavelink solutions implement at a fraction of the time compared to other industry WMS and voice-picking solutions giving our joint customers a faster speed to market.”
“The combination of Wavelink’s voice enablement technology with Logfire’s Warehouse Management Cloud Solution will provide customers with a powerful, flexible warehouse solution,” said Steve Bemis, vice president of worldwide sales at Wavelink. “Customers will benefit from streamlined warehouse operations, increased workforce productivity and greater ease of use, all without sacrificing order accuracy.”
Speakeasy redefines voice enablement and erases the complexities associated with legacy voice applications such as voice middleware, dedicated voice servers and proprietary voice hardware. Enterprises that choose Speakeasy benefit from a full-featured voice-enablement solution without extended deployment projects. Many Speakeasy deployments are completed in 30 days or less.
