RedPrairie Corp. (Milwaukee, Wisc.) and Voxware, Inc. (Lawrenceville, N.J.), are integrating Voxware’s voice software with RedPrairie’s Warehouse Management System (WMS). RedPrairie will resell Voxware’s open voice software product for the supply chain, which is built on recognized standards such as service-oriented architecture and VoiceXML.
Gary Morgan, v.p., configuration services at RedPrairie, said, “Our customers are demanding platform independent systems that offer them more choices and influence over system configuration. Integrating to Voxware’s voice solution allows us to take advantage of a true, end-to-end open system architecture. This enables our customers to deploy the hardware of their choice, independent of the voice software, which lowers total cost of ownership. And, most importantly, RedPrairie has far more control than ever before in customizing voice workflows to meet specific customer requirements. Finally, we will be able to quickly and easily integrate voice into subsequent releases of our WMS.”
Scott Yetter, president of Voxware, said, “The strategic integration of Voxware’s open, platform-independent and scalable voice software with RedPrairie, a leader in supply chain excellence, opens a new era for voice in the warehouse. RedPrairie’s global presence will allow more companies than ever to realize the benefits of Voxware’s open, standards-based approach to voice software. RedPrairie users now have an unprecedented level of on-site adaptability from Voxware, which will enable them to further optimize their supply chain operations.”
Voxware’s voice solution is certified on mobile devices from a variety of manufacturers, including devices with multi-modal functionality. This allows companies to leverage existing hardware vendor relationships and obtain greater value from their hardware investments. Voxware is the first and only vendor to use non-proprietary, open standards in its voice solution, including service-oriented architecture, Java, voiceXML and web technology.
