Iptor announces voice-activated order management solution

Logistics software provider Iptor Supply Chain Systems has announced a new voice-activated order management system for their SCM platform DC1 Version 10.

The Stockholm-based company developed the solution as part of an ongoing collaboration with electronics company HARMAN, and is powered by their voice-assisted BOT framework based on the Microsoft stack.

The collaboration represents Iptor’s first steps in exposing processes within Iptor software to cognitive applications and voice recognition technologies. The result of a two-month global hackathon between the two companies, the voice recognition software is being showcased at Iptor’s series of “Connect” events.
