Vocollect Introduces Behind-the-Head Headset for Voice System Workers

    Adds important ergonomic benefits for end users

    PITTSBURGH, Feb. 25 /CNW/ -- Vocollect, Inc., provider of the most widely
used voice systems for improving supply chain performance, today announced the
availability of its newest headset for voice system workers, the SR-15, which
provides significant end-user ergonomic benefits that increase productivity
and worker satisfaction.

    The SR-15 is ideal for employees performing fast-paced mobile tasks that
cannot wear typical over-the-head headset models due to hair style, religious
headwear or comfort issues. In addition to its use in the distribution
center/warehouse industrial environment, its less obtrusive form makes the new
Vocollect headset suitable for environments where voice-enabled workers are
visible to, or interacting with, the public.

    While all Vocollect headsets are designed to effectively balance user
comfort with full-shift industrial durability, comfort is a uniquely
individual preference. As the market leader in voice, Vocollect has invested
heavily in research and development activity to fully understand the impact of
human factors in the development of voice equipment. The new SR-15 is the
latest culmination of that ongoing research, featuring a unique earpiece that
allows workers to operate comfortably through a full eight-hour shift. Unlike
over-the-head models which require a strong clamping force, the SR-15's
innovative design gently positions itself on the ears with very little force.
The headset is adjustable for either right or left ear, providing enhanced

    Offering the same high-quality voice recognition performance and features
as other Vocollect SR Series headsets, the SR-15 offers an ideal balance
between a rugged industrial headset and lightweight headset. It is designed to
operate with Vocollect-manufactured voice devices and handheld mobile
computing devices from certain Vocollect-affiliated device manufacturers.

    "Our strategic objective is to offer our customers and channel partners
continuous improvement in everything we do. The SR-15 is yet another example
of how we have listened to our marketplace to create a headset option that
provides maximum flexibility, comfort and performance," said Tom Upshur, vice
president of product management and marketing, Vocollect, Inc.
