(OTC: VOXW), a provider of integrated voice-based solutions for logistics, announced that Argos Ltd. has implemented a pilot of its VoiceLogistics technology in one of its distribution centers in Basildon, United Kingdom. "Our distribution is a major component of our business strategy. Delivering accurate and effective service, and maintaining cost competitiveness is the key. Optimizing operational performance is very important to us," said an Argos spokesperson. "Therefore, we looked at different possible technology alternatives and it was clear that with voice applications, given the right focus and approach, it is very likely that we will achieve our objectives.
