Community FoodBank of New Jersey Implements Voxware
The Community FoodBank of New Jersey, a charity serving 17 of New Jersey's 21 counties, has implemented Voxware's Cloud Voice Management Suite (VMS), in its two warehouses.
In less than three months, Voxware has already reduced the length of picking shifts by 30 percent for the organization's item selectors.
"We're excited about our early results with Voxware, especially with respect to the positive impact the software has had on our staff," said Michael Jordan, director of operations at the Community FoodBank of New Jersey, in a statement. "Not only have we been able to reduce the time spent picking but our team members have adapted to the software quickly and enthusiastically. Our top pickers are looking forward to picking with Voxware during our upcoming busy season."
From two facilities with a combined footprint of 315,000 square feet, the Community FoodBank of New Jersey distributed more than 44 million pounds of food in the past year. Demand is expected to rise this year, especially during the last three months of the year.
Voxware offers its Cloud VMS for voice-directed picking through a subscription-based pricing model.
"We are proud to partner with the Community FoodBank of New Jersey, enabling them to serve more families in need across the Garden State," said Keith Phillips, president and CEO of Voxware, which is also based in New Jersey. "The Community FoodBank of New Jersey, like other food banks we partner with, provides a valuable and necessary service. Voxware Cloud VMS allows food banks to reduce distribution and IT infrastructure cost enabling them to focus more resources on their core mission, serving those in need. We look forward to continuing our strong partnership with the Community FoodBank of New Jersey, as well as other food banks around the country."
