FKI Logistex EASYpick Voice Incorporates Voxware's Speech Recognition Engine
(Cincinnati, OH: August 19, 2005) FKI Logistex®, a global leader in integrated material handling solutions, announces that it has incorporated the Voxware Integrated Speech Recognition Engine (VISE™) into its EASYpick® Voice order fulfillment system. EASYpick Voice complements the full line of EASYpick pick-to-light and EASYput® put-to-light technologies from FKI Logistex, a product suite of integrated order fulfillment solutions.

The integration of VISE with EASYpick allows FKI Logistex to offer customers a wider range of order fulfillment solutions designed to work in different operational situations. Implementation of EASYpick Voice significantly reduces costs and increases accuracy by enabling workers to utilize audible commands and voice responses to perform a variety of order fulfillment tasks.

The VISE engine is considered the most powerful speech recognition engine on the market, proven in head-to-head competitions to deliver the best recognition rates and greatest ease-of-use in the industry. VISE operates without difficulty in even the most noisy, problematic environments. The advanced technology automatically ignores "out-of-vocabulary" words, allowing workers to communicate seamlessly with the system and their co-workers.

"The EASYpick brand is well-known in the logistics market for its efficiency and value," notes Thomas Drury, CEO, Voxware. "We are pleased that FKI Logistex has added our industry-leading voice recognition engine to its already strong product line."

"Adding VISE to EASYpick Voice makes it the most powerful voice-directed order fulfillment system available in the warehouse and distribution center environment," says John Westendorf, president, FKI Logistex Warehouse and Distribution North America. "With this new technology, FKI Logistex now offers the broadest selection of order fulfillment technologies for our customer applications."
