Voxware and Intek Maximize PETCO Warehouse Performance
PRINCETON, NJ & BELLEVUE, WA - Intek Integration Technologies Inc. and Voxware Inc. (OTC: VOXW) announced that PETCO Animal Supplies Inc. (NASDAQ: PETC) is enhancing productivity and accuracy from their distribution center management solution which integrates Voxware's VoiceLogistics technology with Intek's Warehouse Librarian Warehouse Management and Control System. The real-time integration at PETCO's Mira Loma, Calif., facility allows VoiceLogistics to provide a hands-free/eyes-free means for workers to pick products for shipment while Warehouse Librarian directs warehouse operations and gives management extensive decision-making power. "Our management team is extremely pleased with the integration, said Andrew Ross, IS project manager at PETCO. "We were already achieving a high level of performance, but the Intek/Voxware solution boosted our performance further." "Our Peer System Interface integrates Warehouse Librarian with VoiceLogistics in real-time," said Stan McLean, Intek's president and COO. "This allows Warehouse Librarian to communicate directly with workers on the floor using voice technology. PETCO's selectors are now able to 'hands-free' verify locations while picking large or non-standard size/shape items. The integration of VoiceLogistics with Warehouse Librarian produces superior productivity improvements over other types of picking automation in this environment." "Intek's ability to connect with other logistics systems allowed us to complete the integration work in record time," said Bathsheba J. Malsheen, CEO of Voxware. "We are very pleased to partner with a company that has such a passion for customer service and providing advanced technology solutions for the warehouse."
