Intermec’s CV41 and CV61 mobile computers featuring Vocollect Voice to increase productivity for forklift workers across Australia and New Zealand

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA, February 8, 2012 – Intermec, Inc. (NYSE: IN) today announced its newest vehicle-mount computers, the CV41 and CV61, designed to integrate with any forklift.  These new offerings represent the first vehicle-mount computers certified to offer the proven productivity, accuracy, safety and reduced training time benefits of Vocollect voice-directed work.  

Additionally, both the CV41 and CV61 vehicle-mount computers include a CANBUS interface to support forklift fleet management applications.

“Intermec’s new vehicle-mount computers are built to withstand our customers’ most challenging environments – delivering fast, reliable and secure connection to warehouses, retail operations, factories, T&L and other supply chain operations,” said Tony Repaci, Managing Director for Australia and New Zealand for Intermec. “The CV41 and CV61 strengthen Intermec’s position as a technology leader across the Australian and New Zealand supply chains, offering one of the industry’s broadest suites of advanced data collection solutions.”

"When combined with Crown's InfoLink® fleet management solution, the CV41 and CV61 enable a significantly enhanced Windows interface for the operator at a fraction of the hardware implementation cost," said Jim Gaskell, Director Global Insite Products, Crown Equipment Corporation.

CV41CV41: Perfectly-sized to improve forklift operator performance
The CV41 vehicle-mount computer improves forklift operator performance by providing a balance of operator usability, application performance, and ease of deployment and maintenance. Additionally, the CV41 exclusive device health reporting capability provides dynamic updates to allow mobile workers and IT administrators to monitor and prevent issues related to scanning, communications and a wide range of other critical device health functions before they impact operations.

The optional Vocollect Voice capability, complete with client and wireless headset, provides additional productivity, accuracy and training benefits associated with voice-directed work.

CV61CV61: Smart design makes it easy to migrate from legacy vehicle-mount computers
In a larger display model, the CV61 is a touch screen vehicle-mount computer and is the successor to the successful CV60. The 30.7 cm (12.1 in) LED backlit touchscreen display is easy to read in dimly-lit or outdoor environments. Its IP66 rating ensures dust-tight operation and pressure-wash water sealing, while its user-swappable solid state disk storage preserves data integrity even in harsh, high vibration environments. Like the CV41, the CV61 features the same optional Vocollect Voice capability and its associated benefits.   

“Intermec’s CV41 and CV61 represent significant enhancements to their vehicle-mount computer and distribution center solutions portfolio. These computers address end users’ form factor, functionality and management requirements,” said David Krebs, VP Mobile & Wireless Practice, VDC Research.
