    New software suite offers ease-of-use in creation of end-to-end voice

    Voice applications extended to more WMS, ERP and similar resource
management environments

    Provides partners with access to Vocollect's best practices

    PITTSBURGH and NICE, France, May 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Vocollect, Inc., the
world leader in voice solutions for mobile workers, has today announced
VoiceWorld Suite, a fully configurable suite of software products and tools
that allow for easier development of voice applications suitable for multiple
market segments. Businesses increasingly look to voice to help them achieve
greater accuracy, increased productivity and efficiency gains. Vocollect's
VoiceWorld Suite will make it easier for more partners and customers to tap
into Vocollect's best practices for deploying voice applications.

    VoiceWorld Suite will allow Vocollect's network of resellers and
customers across the globe to rapidly create new and modify existing voice
applications that enable the creation of scalable, reliable and industrial
strength voice systems. The Suite comprises existing and new applications and
will continue to be developed to ensure users always have access to the
best-in-breed voice solutions.

    Joe Pajer, president of Vocollect, Inc.'s supply chain business, said,
"The opportunities for voice are vast and we've only just begun to penetrate
this market worldwide. Now, with a single source for voice implementation,
VoiceWorld Suite empowers our reseller partners and customers to extend the
use of voice, based on Vocollect's best practices, throughout the global
distribution center (DC)/warehouse environment and across the extended supply

    VoiceWorld Suite is composed of four key elements:

    --  Enterprise Voice Connectors - Provide direct-oriented (VoiceDirect)
        middleware (VoiceLink) interfaces to map work assignments from WMS,
        ERP, SCM, IM and TMS systems to the mobile computing device.
        VoiceWeaver provides a native interface to the SAP Netweaver WM and
    --  Vocollect VoiceConsole - Centralizes management activities for
        voice-enabled workforces and their devices.
    --  Vocollect VoiceClient - Currently supporting 26 languages, it provides
        market-leading accuracy through noise-tolerant voice recognition and
        speech output for end-user mobile devices.

    --  Development Tools - Including TaskBuilder and VoiceArtisan - provide a
        robust and consistent environment for the development of voice
        applications, enabling resellers and customers to create new or modify
        existing voice applications without needing voice-specific expertise
        proprietary development programmers.

    A wide range of Industrial Mobile Devices run applications from
VoiceWorld Suite including: the Vocollect Talkman Series (T5, T5m and T2x), as
well as devices from other manufacturers including the Psion Teklogix
Workabout Pro Speech, Intermec CK3, LXE MX7 and HX2, and the Motorola MC9090
and WT4000 series.

    Vocollect has deployed its offerings to 5,000 customer sites with more
than 250,000 end users in over two decades of operation. "There are benefits
of Vocollect Voice the whole way down the supply chain," said Jim McCafferty,
distribution general manager for major United Kingdom retailer WHSmith. "In
addition to accuracy and productivity increases, there have been significant
improvements in quality control, replenishment and store shrink rates. But it
is the productivity increases that I have been most impressed with - and the
almost immediate return on investment," he said.
