Intermec CK3 Introduces Vocollect Voice on the SRX Wireless Headset
PITTSBURGH (3 March 2010) – Vocollect, Inc., the world leader in voice-centric solutions for mobile workers, today announced the market availability of Vocollect’s wireless headset, the SRX, on the Intermec CK3 rugged mobile computer. The solution helps mobile workers in warehouses and distribution centers (DCs) achieve all of the proven productivity and accuracy benefits of voice with even greater freedom of mobility.
The combination of the Vocollect SRX headset, Vocollect Voice software, and Intermec CK3 is ideal for tough and demanding DC/warehouse environments. Offering unmatched ruggedness and flexibility, the CK3 easily delivers the productivity and accuracy improvements of voice, advanced imaging, mobile printing, and RFID applications for mission-critical distribution applications. With no cables to connect or clips to attach, the SRX and CK3 combination gives workers greater range of movement, resulting in increased productivity, convenience and safety.
The Odom Corporation, a leading beverage distributor which sells 1.7 million cases of varied products each month, has utilized Vocollect Voice with the CK3 to:
Improve perfect order fulfillment rates from 76 percent to 99 percent
Increase the amount of bottles processed per hour from 360 to 500
Improve case pick rates per hour from 95 to 156
Vocollect Voice on the CK3 leverages Vocollect’s client software, device management software, and process logic software with a host of client-based tools and a wide variety of applications to support mobile workers performing tasks including picking, replenishment, put-away and cycle-counting.
“Combining the CK3 and SRX wireless headset adds another level of flexibility and performance for our customers,” said Tim Eusterman, senior director of Industry Marketing at Intermec. “Whether you wear the CK3 or mount it on a forklift or pallet jack, going wireless for voice applications changes the game for productivity, ergonomics and safety. And realizing all these benefits from a single mobile computing infrastructure improves efficiency and reduces operating costs.”
Tom Murray, vice president, Product Management and Marketing at Vocollect, Inc., noted, “Our ability to offer the Intermec CK3 device with both wireless and wired headsets provides a variety of options for companies seeking to heighten business performance through voice.
