<p>FARMINGDALE, N.Y. and MARKHAM, Ontario, <span class="xn-chron">Aug. 11</span> /CNW/ -- Robocom Systems International, a provider of Supply Chain Execution Software announced today that BRR Logistics Inc., a third party logistics provider, has successfully implemented voice picking using Robocom's R-Voice system.  BRR is utilizing R-Voice in its deep frozen products warehouse located in North York, Ontario for ice cream distribution.</p>
<p/>
<p>Sandy Norval, VP Sales and Operations of BRR Logistics Inc. said, "We were very thorough in our review of potential business partners for this important project.  Because of the uniqueness of working in a deep freeze environment we had to be certain that our partner would deliver a voice-picking solution that would meet our functional requirements as well as stand up to the harsh working conditions.  Robocom's experience with voice-based technology in similar environments and their performance for BRR has demonstrated to us that we selected the right partner."</p>
<p/>
<p>Sandy explained: "BRR operates an in-house developed WMS and it was essential that we implemented a voice solution that would not force us to displace our current system.  Robocom demonstrated their ability to interface with a non-Robocom WMS as well the robustness of R-Voice to operate in a harsh environment.  Having our warehouse personnel being able to operate 'hands-free and heads-up' in the freezer is a huge win for us in terms of both productivity and safety."</p>
<p/>
<p>"Robocom's R-Voice solution was implemented utilizing BRR's existing wireless network," said Robocom's Vice <span class="xn-person">President Rich Adamo</span>.  Additional benefits that will be achieved by BRR include simplified and expedited training for new warehouse personnel as well as a reduction in overtime.</p>
<p/>
<p>BRR's Norval went on to say, "Following the successful implementation of voice-picking, we are really looking forward to implementing Robocom's labor management solution, R-Labor.  We are confident that we will realize additional productivity gains."</p>
<p/>
<p>"Robocom continues to be keenly focused on the needs of the business leaders responsible for the day-to-day results in warehousing and distribution center operations," said <span class="xn-person">Fred Radcliffe</span>, Robocom President.  "R-Voice is another tool that the operating managers can use to deliver the cost savings that are being demanded of them.  We are excited about bringing this capability to our customers and we continue to believe that we have one of the best development teams in the supply chain execution software industry."</p>
<p/>
