Dematic, a supplier of systems for the factory, warehouse and distribution center, has announced the expansion and strengthening of its relationship with Vocollect, a world leader in voice solutions for mobile workers and a business unit of Intermec, through a new global partnership. This collaboration provides an improved customer experience that delivers a comprehensive view of the warehouse inclusive of equipment, processes and workforce in real-time, enabling insightful decision-making for improved operations.
Vocollect solutions integrate with Dematic’s software platform for seamless, consistent application throughout the entire warehouse operations. Collaborating in this way at the global level helps ensure reliable support and repeatable results regardless of location while greatly improving the ability to make real-time decisions, leading to increased distribution and fulfillment capability while lowering costs.
“Leveraging knowledge captured from the warehouse or DC is important to the supply chain,” stated Robert Nilsson, Dematic Vice President and General Manager of Software and Supply Chain Intelligence. “Partnerships such as this will help Dematic to advance the capability of its solutions and strengthen the effectiveness of the supply chain.”
