PEAK Technologies, a Platinum Equity company, has launched a new voice-enabled logistics solution, MCL-Voice, to provide a more flexible and robust data collection platform solution to its customers.
The MCL-Voice solution provides a true multimodal approach to deploy a range of applications from voice-centric applications to multi-modal applications combining voice, barcode scanning, RFID and keyboard data capture methods -- all in the same application.
"Since MCL-Voice is already integrated into the MCL-Collection platform, it allows us to provide customers with a solution that utilizes whichever data capture method is most efficient and convenient to perform the task at hand -- the right technology at the right time; whether it be voice, barcode scanning or other data collection inputs," said Tim Wills, vice president of marketing, PEAK Technologies.
A second generation product, MCL-Voice is a mature technology that includes the following benefits:
-- Multimodal approach - combine voice, barcode, keyboard, touch screen and
RFID technologies for better ergonomics and efficiency
-- Multi-manufacturer - extensive testing and product development with
Motorola, LXE and other leading industry manufacturer devices
-- Multi-application support - increase return on investment by running
multiple applications for multiple users on the same device
-- Centralized management and reporting - gain objective and accurate voice
data based on logging and statistical analysis
-- Flexible voice options - speaker dependent and/or speaker independent
recognition options and supervised speaker adaptation to improve
accuracy for non-native speakers, accents or special voice
"MCL selected PEAK Technologies as our North American integration partner for MCL-Voice due to PEAK's extensive experience in delivering integrated warehouse, supply chain, and distribution data collection solutions and their ability to integrate MCL-Voice into SAP supply chain applications," said Jean-Francois Jacques, managing director, MCL Technologies. "The flexibility of the MCL-Voice solution has been extremely well received by customers in Europe and we are now looking to extend the success of this solution to customers throughout North America."
