Ehrhardt + Partner Group (EPG) has expanded its product portfolio: With its Lydia Voice Suite, the solution for Voice-controlled processes, the logistics expert continues to expand its position as a comprehensive solutions provider. Together with topsystem, the developer of Lydia Voice Solutions, the aim is to tap deeper into the international market and strengthen the global partnership network. EPG's majority stake in topsystem also involves the further strategic development of topsystem's aviation division.
"Lydia is the leading technological system when it comes to voice-controlled processes," says Marco Ehrhardt, Managing Director of EPG. "Its innovative capabilities tie in perfectly with our international strategy and range of products. It enables us to offer all EPG clients and partners a unique comprehensive solution to optimise their logistics."
In taking over topsystem, EPG is now represented in 14 locations. For clients and partners in the UK this means: local on-site support from EPG teams for all logistics projects, support in the expansion of partner networks, as well as for the certification process to become a Lydia Solution Partner.
Voice solution for international requirements
The Lydia Voice Suite is already used worldwide. With the Business and Enterprise versions, EPG offers a solution tailored to the requirements of individual countries. Lydia is already available for use in a mobile Business version on all Voice-compatible mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets. The Enterprise version comprises a combination of Voxter and Lydia VoiceWear: The conventional headset is replaced by an order-picking vest, which offers improved ergonomics by working to a hands-free principle when order picking. Vision is another field covered by the Lydia Voice Suite: The Lydia SmartWatch and Lydia data glasses have already been successfully put into use by a number of clients. The software is speaker-independent, ensuring that long training periods are not required. In combination with EPG's smart IT logistics solutions, clients therefore receive an innovative comprehensive system to optimise logistics processes.
In addition to its logistics business, topsystem's aviation division is now also a part of EPG. The range of services covers efficient IT systems for the two core areas of its airport business: ground handling and cargo handling.
