    Voice systems have long been proven to dramatically improve productivity
and accuracy levels of distribution center and warehouse employees. With the
addition of the wireless headset option for the WORKABOUT PRO Speech and thus
no cables to connect or clips to attach, workers have more freedom of
movement, resulting in increased convenience, comfort and safety.
    "The addition of the Vocollect SRX wireless headset option, along with
Vocollect Voice integrated within the WORKABOUT PRO Speech, uniquely
complements the Psion Teklogix product suite. This new offering further
extends Vocollect's position as offering the broadest choice, the highest
performance, and the strongest global reach of any voice supplier in the
supply chain distribution market," said Tom Upshur, vice president of product
management and marketing at Vocollect. "This latest offering through Psion
Teklogix strengthens Vocollect's ability to meet the needs of customers for
multi-functionality on handheld computers in today's economically challenging
    "Psion Teklogix is excited to be the first Vocollect device manufacturer
partner to offer a wireless headset capability with Vocollect Voice on a
handheld mobile computer," said Bart Riviere, director of speech solutions for
Psion Teklogix. "We believe this new offering will open up exciting new
opportunities for growth in our global marketplace, as customers seek
additional ways to leverage their voice investment. We are looking forward to
combining this wireless headset with our multi-modal speech offering based on
Vocollect Voice. Operators can now easily combine voice with the screen,
keyboard and barcode reader."
    The WORKABOUT PRO Speech supports a variety of field-installable
expansion modules including scanners, imagers, RFID modules, wireless LAN,
GPS, Wireless WAN radios, and more. It functions as both data capture device
and cellular phone, allowing mobile workers to call customers, upload route
