LXE's MX7 Handheld and HX2 Wearable Devices Now Run Vocollect Voice
ATLANTA, Jan. 16, 2008 -- LXE, the mobile logistics business of EMS Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq:ELMG), and an industry leader in rugged industrial mobile computers that enable voice-directed warehouse applications, announced today that Vocollect has certified its VoiceClient(TM) VVH 1.0 for use on LXE's flagship MX7 handheld computer and LXE's HX2 wearable device. These certifications solidify LXE's position as the versatile global provider of dedicated (voice-only) and multimodal (voice/scanning) data-collection devices for speech-based applications.
"As a market leader in voice-enabled data collection devices, LXE is proud to align itself with Vocollect," says Kai Figwer, vice president of business development for LXE. "This certification adds to our broad range of voice application partnerships. With this relationship, LXE is now enabled on all of the leading best-of-breed voice systems on a global scale. The alliance of Vocollect with LXE allows both companies to leverage our collective experience in warehouses/distribution centers in thousands of facilities around the globe that require the highest standards in reliability, worldwide service and support, product ruggedness, and performance."
In the past, voice applications could only run on a few proprietary devices. Today, LXE's multipurpose computers combine voice and traditional data capture technologies to substantially improve equipment utilization, productivity and accuracy in warehouses and distribution centers. By using LXE equipment, customers have the added advantage of LXE's global ServicePass program, offering industry-leading technical service and 24x7 support.
"LXE believes voice technologies and hands-free computing will continue to grow as a strong component of inventory tracking and control throughout the supply chain. We have seen voice systems improve productivity, accuracy, safety and worker job satisfaction" Figwer says. "Now that our MX7 and HX2 computers have been Vocollect-certified, we can offer Vocollect users the flexibility and reliability of LXE's multimodal devices today."
