Vocollect, Icon Integration and Dematic team up to take out 2013 Mercury Award in Australia

MELBOURNE (October 10, 2013) – Vocollect by Honeywell is honored to be recognized alongside Icon Integration and Dematic for its contribution to the 2013 Logistics & Materials Handling’s Mercury Award winning voice-directed solution project developed for workplace safety identification solutions provider, Brady.

Utilising an innovative application that works in conjunction with the new technological framework within Brady’s new DC, Brady adopted an advanced Voice solutions that guided workers through their tasks using spoken instructions.

With their hands- and eyes-free, Brady’s workers were better able to concentrate on the task at hand, and work quicker and with increased precision. This was the first application in Australia of VoiceDirect® ERP for SAP® (VDERP) from Vocollect, the manufacturer of the DC’s voice-directed picking system.

“We have been using voice picking technology for over seven years, however, it has required the use of middleware to enable SAP® WM to communicate with the Vocollect system,” said Simon Harris, Brady’s Operations Manager.

“When it came time to relocate to our new DC we faced the dilemma of significantly upgrading the middleware, or finding an alternative way of making our voice picking system communicate directly with SAP WM,” explained Mr. Harris.

“Dematic’s Real Time Logistics division and our SAP partner Icon researched the options available and recommended Vocollect’s recently developed VDERP interface, which facilitates the direct integration of voice picking to SAP WM,” he said.

“Vocollect’s VoiceDirect ERP for SAP system allows small to medium businesses in Australia to integrate Vocollect voice-directed picking solutions with ease and minimum hassle,” said Paul Roddis, Managing Director of Icon Integration.

“We were surprised and delighted to receive this award which really does reflect a team effort in delivering this outcome for Brady Australia. The support we received from our partners Vocollect and Dematic was excellent and the team at Brady was a real pleasure to work alongside,” said Paul.
