One of the biggest changes that has occurred to the voice market has been the growth of SAP and their successful eWM offering. The latest industry reports show SAP as the leading supplier of Supply Chain software solutions with almost 30% market share. This strong market position has helped breakdown barriers to voice adoption because eWM includes a seamless interface for voice solutions.
Lydia® Voice is different to other voice suppliers because our solution integrates with SAP 100%. The Lydia® Voice Connector for SAP allows native integration of Lydia® Voice solutions into SAP. Our entire application logic resides within SAP, enabling the customer to use all standard SAP functions and eliminates the need for a complex engagement process requiring two different partners. The advantage? You can carry out all adaptations and extensions to your Lydia® Voice application with your own SAP team.
The Lydia® Connector for SAP results in faster and more efficient data capture, a smoother workflow process and a significant increase in worker productivity. Warehouse operators receive their work instructions via voice on a mobile device enabling users confirm step by step their work orders via speech. Quite simply, Lydia® Voice works like a microphone on SAP. The Lydia® Connector works seamlessly with barcode scanning, RFID scanning and manual keyboard entry.
The Lydia® Voice Connector is the best solution for SAP customers wanting to add voice capabilities to their workflow processes and want voice done right for their SAP technology environment.
While SAP may have made it easier to integrate voice solutions, most voice suppliers have not used this opportunity to leverage the architectural benefits SAP provides. Unfortunately for the SAP customer, most voice suppliers continue to either use a middleware solution or they have overly complicated the interface work, which requires both an SAP partner and a voice partner. Neither option is desirable - businesses know managing a project with a single partner is hard enough, it becomes too complex when two partners have to be engaged. This is probably the main reason why other voice suppliers struggle to penetrate the SAP market opportunity successfully.
