Lydia Voice vs. Vocollect Voice

Not so long ago, researching voice solution providers was a difficult task due to the limited voice technology options for distribution center and warehouse processes and workflows. Two viable global voice solutions for the warehouse and distribution market emerged - Vocollect voice and Lydia Voice. Now, after years of daring customers to compare, Lydia Voice is the #1 voice solution on Android devices globally for past two years. More than 100,000 voice users have made the move to Lydia Voice. Customers moving from Vocollect voice to Lydia Voice have experienced on average an 8% to 12% worker productivity increase and 30% less in total cost of ownership. If you’re are using template training, please be aware of the recent successful class action suits based on the infringement of Biometric Privacy Rights law: whole-foods-pay-300k-recording-warehouse-employees-voices-2023.

For customers that want to make the move to Lydia Voice easily, EPG offers the Lydia Voice Co-Exist solution, which enables existing voice customers to operate a two-vendor voice strategy without having to undertake any major additional voice integration efforts.
