Voice has a proven two-decade track record in dramatically improving operational efficiency, productivity, safety and job satisfaction for employees performing mobile tasks.

Via a Wi-Fi network, employees receive assignments through a lightweight, battery-powered computer device worn or held by the employee, heard through a headset, which direct the employee to perform a specific task. The employee engages in an ongoing dialogue with the information system to perform work assignments, with words recognized by voice recognition software running on the device.
