Robert Bova President and CEO of AccuSpeechMobile, recently discussed new voice automation architecture based on mobile devices, rather than relying on a server. Bova’s article is published in Automation Media magazine.
Bova explained, “The landscape has changed. New modern voice architecture allows for seamless automation of existing business processes and system customization. Existing assets can now be leveraged very cost-effectively without million-dollar installations and expensive service maintenance contracts.”
The new voice automation architecture is based on the mobile device, rather than the server. This is a revolution in additive technology; meaning it supports multi-modal inputs. A server is not required, nor are WMS integration modules, integration engineering, nor proprietary software. This new voice automation technology can enhance multiple WMS applications.
The clear majority of manufacturing and distribution teams have analyzed every aspect of the applications and processes. The result of this rigor has optimized the operation for the best workflows and technology installations. By adding voice, automating the application's capability simultaneously exploits the powerful functionality of today's hardware; this continuous process improvement paradigm gets a much-needed technological jolt.
AccuSpeechMobile’s unique, completely device-based solution voice enables and automates Supply Chain operations, including warehouse (WMS, ERP), distribution and field service applications (mobile inspection, maintenance and repair). AccuSpeechMobile extends the useful life of existing investments and connects to any warehouse management system (WMS, ERP), allowing clients to rapidly achieve double-digit improvements in workforce productivity, increased accuracy, workforce safety and operational efficiency.
Supply chain, distribution, field services, logistics, retail and transportation operations benefit from AccuSpeechMobile’s device-based approach, often deploying the voice interface within weeks and demonstrating productivity gains immediately.
