Agilysys, Inc. is partnering with Vangard Voice Systems, Inc. to bring voice technology to Agilysys's products. Vangard sells the AccuSpeech Mobile Voice Platform (MVP) for voice-enabling mobile systems. The technology will now be offered in NextVision, Web-based mobile and wireless retail software from Agilysys. Users of NextVision can select optional voice-powered capabilities for data entry, application function commands and navigation. Agilysys said it chose Vangard's MVP for its ability to quickly and non-invasively add voice capabilities to the company's own applications. NextVision mobile and wireless products can now deliver compete device-resident voice capabilities on a wide variety of mobile devices, the partners said. The first NextVision voice-enabled applications to be made available to customers include mobile shelf-price verification, inventory management and instant alert notification, offered in the NextCollection and NextManager products.
