Zetes 3i Voice Solution is enhanced with a SAP Adaptor in its Java-based 3iV Connector
Zetes has announced that the Zetes 3i Competence Centre has enhanced its market-leading 3i Voice Solution in view of a rising interest for logistics' voice applications within the SAP community. The Zetes 3i Voice Solution has addressed this growing demand by adding a direct integration possibility between its mobile voice applications running on the proven Talkman platform and SAP's LES/WM modules.
Direct integration, no middleware, no extra servers
Through this Zetes development, the SAP system can directly send, amongst others, picking-assignments to its users that are equipped with voice recognition terminals that run the Zetes 3iV mobile applications and this without the need for extra middleware or adding extra server-stations in its architecture. These 'voice-users' can be tracked through all the standard reporting and screens via the RF monitor available in SAP.
The 3iV SAP Adaptor, a latest addition to the 3iV Connector - a communication service-tool developed in Java to allow it being installed on any host system to facilitate direct integration between the ERP/WMS and the mobile 3i Voice applications - comes with a customisable set of ABAP Add-On code. Both are installed on the SAP application server. It makes use of the standard SAP process logic and respects the business rules set up in the SAP environment.
"We see an important increase in the use of SAP LES and SAP WM in various markets. In addition to that, we also see the rising interest of SAP customers to make use of our voice solutions to further improve their logistics' productivity and accuracy," says Marcel Kars, VP 3i Competence Centres, Zetes. "That is why we made a considerable effort to enable our 3i Voice Solution in the SAP environment following the direct integration principles that have made us the clear market leader in Europe when it comes to implementing voice recognition solutions in logistics. The combination of our 3iV Connector with the SAP Adaptor and the set of customisable ABAP Add-On, opens up the use of our 3iV Application Suite to the SAP user community."
Aside from Order-picking, other applications are available in the Zetes 3iV Application Suite. Cross-Docking, Pick-by-line, Put Away, Replenishment, Cycle Counting, etc. are only few of the possibilities.
