REDPRAIRIE Corporation and Voxware Inc. have signed a global value added reseller agreement.
Voxware is a supplier of voice-driven logistics solutions. Under the terms of the agreement, RedPrairie will embed Voxware's voice technology in their Warehouse Management product suite using Voxware's VoiceLogistics Pro development toolkit coupled with VoxBrowser client software, an open, browser-based, VoiceXML solution certified to run on a wide range of mobile computing devices.
RedPrairie says the agreement with Voxware supports RedPrairie's goal of ensuring that their customers achieve the measurable results they expect from their supply chain technology investments.
RedPrairie will expand their use of Voxware's voice technology as a powerful tool for warehouse optimisation.
With VoiceLogistics Pro, Voxware provides RedPrairie with software tools to create a RedPrairie-branded voice solution.
VoiceLogistics Pro enables RedPrairie to incorporate voice applications within their full range of warehouse management system products in ways that are easily adapted to individual customer requirements.
Voxware says that with the power of their VoiceLogistics Pro, RedPrairie will be able to create their own voice solutions and deliver them on the growing number of mobile computers from major manufacturers supported by VoxBrowser client software and Voxware's certification program.
This gives RedPrairie customers freedom of choice and flexibility for the future, and enables voice to reach more points in the warehouse and it can be integrated with other technologies (such as scanning, RFID, etc) and future applications in cost-effective ways.
Voxware's strategy is to expand the value that voice can bring. They believe that voice solutions will deliver even greater value when they are open - based upon a modern technology stack that meets enterprise IT standards today and in the future - and go beyond closed solutions centred on proprietary mobile computing devices.
Voxware also claim that voice will support more widespread and varied logistics applications when many logistics solutions providers provide a wide range of mobile computer alternatives.
