Germantown, WI – April 14, 2008: Lightning Pick Technologies, a leading provider of light-directed order fulfillment execution solutions, today announced their partnership with Voxware, Inc., a leading supplier of software for voice-driven warehousing operations.
The Lightning Pick Product Suite will now leverage the Voxware 3 platform to provide distributors with a proven Voice-Directed picking application as a standalone solution, or as a fully integrated system with Pick-to-Light, Put-to-Light or other advanced order fulfillment execution technologies. Now distribution operations can optimize their order selection processes with both the leading best-of breed Pick to Light and the best-of-breed Voice Picking products in the marketplace.
The partnership with Voxware is the latest development in Lightning Pick’s continued focus on providing multi-modal order selection systems. Lightning Pick users can manage a single order download throughout multiple pick areas and methodologies in their facility with one robust software toolset and with just one interface with their WMS or ERP host system.
“The marketplace is calling for hybrid picking solutions that can optimize myriad order fulfillment processes, instead of opting for a one-size-fits-all approach. Our new partnership with Voxware is part of our response to answer that need”, said Bernie McCabe, Business Development Manager for Lightning Pick Technologies. “Distributors can now leverage the best-of-breed Pick to Light and/or Voice picking products, on one powerful execution software platform, to effectively manage paperless picking throughout their supply chain.”
The new partnership expands Voxware’s strategy of developing channel relationships with top solution providers who can successfully deliver a complete voice solution.
“The benefits of voice picking are well documented, but for a long time rigid hardware and software platforms have been a barrier to widespread adoption,” said Scott J. Yetter, President of Voxware. “With our open, standards-based approach, our goal is to enable the seamless conversion and execution of voice regardless of what platform distribution centers are operating with. We’re thrilled Lightning Pick Technologies has recognized the value of open, standards-based voice software and we welcome this new partnership to help deploy voice to an ever widening base of customers across industries.”
