Giant Eagle Installs Vocollect Voice System at Meats Facility

PITTSBURGH - Vocollect, provider of voice powered solutions for business, announced that it has successfully completed a Talkman T2 system installation at Giant Eagle's Butler Refrigerated Meats facility in Butler, Pa.

Vocollect's Talkman products are wireless, wearable voice-powered computers designed to help warehouse and factory workers increase picking accuracy, productivity and speed, while allowing hands-free and eyes-free operation. The Talkman features speech recognition technology that allows users to talk to the terminal, and in turn to the host warehouse management system, as freely and easily as they talk to each other.

Giant Eagle reported that after one week of using Vocollect's Talkman products, total errors were reduced by 73%.

"This (the Talkman T2 system) is a home run for us -- not just a single, a home run," said Larry Baldauf, Giant Eagle's senior vice president of distribution and logistics. "This system is making a huge impact on the way we do business." Giant Eagle is currently planning Talkman T2 systems at several other sites.
