FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Wavelink Enters Strategic Alliance with Best-in-class Voice Solutions Provider Vangard Voice Systems
Partnership Extends Wavelink Voice Solutions Across the Enterprise.
MIDVALE, UTAH Wavelink® Corporation today announced a strategic partnership with Vangard Voice Systems, a leader in mobile voice technology. The agreement enables Wavelink to extend its voice offering beyond the four walls of warehouse and distribution centers and into cross-industry data collection applications such as mobile field services, sales and mobile inspections.
Wavelink will utilize Vangard Voice Systems AccuSpeech Mobile technology to enhance the Wavelink Speakeasy™ product family. Initially, the technology will deliver text-to-speech and speech-to-text functionality to existing client-resident mobile applications.
Currently, Speakeasy enables Wavelink Terminal Emulation™ and Wavelink Industrial Browser™ customers to add voice capabilities in a 100 percent client-side, speaker-independent and hardware-independent manner. With the integration of AccuSpeechMobile technology, Wavelink Speakeasy will offer the benefits of voice technology to an array of device-resident mobile applications. Wavelink will also be offering Speakeasy for Wavelink Studio , its widely adopted mobile application development platform at the end of 2008.
"Our partnership with Vangard Voice Systems enables Wavelink enterprise customers to extend the power of voice beyond the warehouse to other mobile applications across the enterprise, said Wavelink President Lamar Van Wagenen. "The introduction of voice-powered, enterprise-wide mobile applications represents the next technology catalyst in Automatic Identification and Data Collection (AIDC), fueling dramatic gains in enterprise-wide productivity.
Bob Bova, president and chief executive officer of Vangard Voice Systems, added, "Together with Wavelink, we look forward to advancing the rapid adoption of voice technology across commercial enterprises and government operations. By bringing together Vangard's expertise in voice technology with Wavelink's reputation for industry-leading wireless solutions, the widespread deployment of voice will become even more accessible across a diverse range of industries and vertical markets.
