Voxware, a leading provider of voice solutions, and LogFire, a leading multi-tenant cloud-based supply chain execution and warehouse management solution (WMS) provider, have announced a strategic partnership aimed at streamlining organizations’ operational efficiencies. Companies looking to rapidly deploy an integrated voice solution into a distribution center or in-store operation can leverage this new offering in a more accelerated, cost-effective manner. Voxware and LogFire unveiled the integrated solution at ProMat 2013.

“Our relationship with Voxware furthers our automation capabilities in the cloud and is consistent with our mission to help companies of all sizes realize the full potential of their supply chain operations,” stated Diego Pantoja-Navajas, LogFire Founder and CEO. “The LogFire-Voxware partnership makes it easy for our customers to leverage voice along with our leading cloud-based extended warehouse management solutions. Voice offers a robust, cost-effective alternative to traditional RF, user interface-based system interaction, and paper-based options that can help take our customers to the next generation of operational excellence.”

By leveraging the LogFire-Voxware integrated cloud-based solution, manufacturers, wholesalers, logistics services providers (3PLs) and retailers can:

• Cost-effectively execute distribution center and in-store operations including: receiving, quality control, putaway, replenishment, picking, packing, shipping, store receiving, shelf replenishment, and cycle/physical inventory counting.
• More effectively receive, act on, and communicate information critical to their business without requiring significant internal IT costs.
• Bypass the traditional up-front cost, time, and resource commitments associated with on-premise solutions for a more rapid, seamless deployment.

“LogFire has exceptional WMS solutions and was looking for additional improvements to deliver to its customers in order to boost their operations. The company turned to Voxware because we provide a high quality cloud-based voice solution that empowers customers to achieve their warehouse and supply chain initiatives,” said Keith Phillips, Voxware President and CEO. “This unique partnership enables us to provide more organizations with the cloud-based technology they need to improve operational efficiencies and enhance their brand reputation.”

The combination of LogFire’s WMS and Voxware’s voice software in the cloud gives organizations the opportunity to leverage the latest technologies for enhancing warehouse and in-store operations. Smaller and mid-size users who traditionally could not afford to deploy such Tier 1 solutions can now receive the benefits of voice and omni-channel warehouse management capabilities. As a result, all companies, regardless of size, are able to realize robust capabilities at a cost-effective price point.
