Voice-Intelligent Middleware Provider Offers BW900 Bluetooth Wireless Headset, Featuring Improved Mobility and Adaptive Noise Cancellation, for Voice-Directed Data Collection Applications

RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA, CA--(Marketwire - January 28, 2008) - Vangard Voice Systems Inc. announced an agreement with Sennheiser Electronic Corporation to distribute the Bluetooth BW900 headset with its voice-intelligent middleware solutions. Sennheiser Bluetooth microphone technology provides Vangard Voice customers with greater mobility and noise cancellation capabilities for mobile workers using applications "voice-enabled" by Vangard's technology in harsh-noise environments.

Vangard Voice Systems is the provider of AccuSpeech™ technology, the only solution to quickly and easily add voice-directed data capture capabilities to new and existing mobile data collection applications.

"Mobile voice-directed data collection is becoming as common as barcode scanning," said Bob Bova, president and chief executive officer of Vangard Voice Systems. "The advanced Bluetooth headset solution offered by Sennheiser extends the hands-free, eyes-free capability, convenience, comfort and safety for mobile workers. Our AccuSpeech technology, which brings voice as a data-capture method to mobile applications, paired with Sennheiser's extended wireless mobility solution, significantly enhances the mobile worker experience."
