Voice: Barcoding and Lucas Systems create partnership

Strategic partnership will enable current and future customers to increase productivity and efficiency within the four walls

By ·

Barcoding, Inc., a leader in enterprise-wide mobility solutions, announced today that it has entered into a strategic alliance with Lucas Systems, Inc., to offer Jennifer VoicePlus voice picking solutions for the warehouse. With the addition of this application, Barcoding is able to offer its warehouse management customers a next-generation voice picking solution that will increase productivity and efficiency while reducing distribution center costs. 

Under this partnership, Barcoding and Lucas Systems will jointly sell and market Jennifer VoicePlus, the first voice directed warehouse application built to run on open, industry-standard mobile computers rather than single-purpose, voice-only hardware.  Jennifer VoicePlus is optimized for standard mobile computers, allowing customers to run Jennifer applications on the same terminals they already use for non-voice radio frequency (RF) applications. This provides additional cost savings and flexibility compared to traditional voice-only solutions. For warehouse managers, Jennifer includes a complete suite of process reporting, productivity and other management tools –the Engage Management Services Console – that complements and extends existing warehouse management, labor management and other back-end systems.

Chris Sweeney, senior vice president of Lucas Systems, said, “Together, Barcoding and Lucas deliver voice directed warehouse solutions that provide greater operational improvements than any other option on the market. Jennifer provides comprehensive voice-plus capabilities that allow users to use voice or scan bar codes interchangeably, ensuring they can work accurately and productively.”

Shane Snyder, vice president of sales for Barcoding, said, “Jennifer VoicePlus is the perfect extension to our mobility offerings for warehouse operations. Through this partnership, new and existing Barcoding customers will receive the full advantage of Jennifer’s next-generation voice-plus capabilities that drive higher ROI and lower total cost of ownership than older voice-only systems.”
