Voice picking innovator EPG has underlined its further global growth with two significant new European hires. Sascha Egener is Sales Director Voice Solutions, based out of the group’s Aachen, Germany office, while Russell Holland joins the supply chain software specialist’s increasingly impressive UK operation as Strategic Alliance Manager, Voice Solutions.

“We are delighted to welcome Sascha and Russell to the EPG family,” enthuses Tim Just, CEO Voice Solutions. “We are a true technology leader enjoying phenomenal global growth – we are the number one voice solution on Android, and in the last 15 months alone, more than 25,000 voice users have made the switch from other voice solutions to LYDIA Voice. The calibre and expertise in voice and logistics technology that Sascha and Russell bring will help take us to even greater heights.”

Faster, more accurate picking with LYDIA Voice

EPG’s LYDIA Voice picking solution has been at the heart of the automation revolution in global warehouse logistics over the past decade, with customer numbers showing consistent upward growth and reporting productivity increases of 7-15% after switching from other voice systems to LYDIA Voice. The world’s number one pick-by-voice solution on Android devices, LYDIA Voice speeds up and optimizes picking processes while slashing picking error numbers. It is easy to use, recognizes over 50 languages (including dialects) and requires no voice template training.

Consistently ahead of the pack, the latest LYDIA Voice 9 release is now capable of recognising multiple languages in parallel – a unique first in the voice market and a real game changer for multinational teams.

Completely hands-free and eyes-free, it gives manual pickers more freedom to pick quickly and accurately without the constant interruption, and potential distraction, of a hand scanner. Customers include some of the world’s biggest and best-known names in retail, warehouse logistics and parcel delivery.

Proven technology and innovation expertise

With a Masters in Information Technology supported by 20 years at the cutting edge of logistics software optimization, Sascha Egener is ideally placed to lead the next stage of the EPG Voice Solutions sales journey. “I have a strong background in innovation, for instance in the fast-developing field of drone logistics,” he reveals. “I recognize in EPG’s voice packages that same appetite for innovation closely matched to precise customer needs and I’m very much looking forward to playing my part in taking it further with both existing and new clients.”

A sales and marketing veteran in the supply chain sector, Russ Holland joins EPG after several years covering 24 European countries as Regional Sales Manager for Honeywell Voice Solutions, working with retailers and 3PLs in the delivery, implementation and management of voice picking systems. “It’s exciting that EPG have continued to invest in LYDIA Voice to make it the best it can be as customer preferences and habits change,” he comments. “I am thrilled to have this chance to work with everyone on the team towards even more future success.”

IWLEX Exhibitors say :

IWLEX Exhibitors say :

  • "We’ve never seen a show like it! Within six minutes of the inaugural IWLEX (Inside Warehouse & Logistics Exhibition) opening, we had our first inquiry in the bag. The two days in May at the Telford International Centre went on to be the most successful trade show we have attended in terms of deals created at the event itself and immediately afterward."
    Hi-Level Mezzanines Ltd
  • “We thoroughly enjoyed our time at IWLEX. It is a valuable exhibition for companies looking for the highest quality visitors. Visitor numbers may be lower than at other exhibitions, simply because the organisers have done a fantastic job in screening out time-wasters! Everyone who came onto our stand was a motivated buyer and we have had several high-quality leads since the exhibition. We recommend IWLEX to anyone looking for relevant leads within the world of warehousing and logistics. Thank you, Justin and Nairn!”
