qdata and Lucas Systems were awarded gold in the "Best Collaborative Solution" category for their Voice-Directed Warehouse Management System that was recently implemented at Longo Brothers Fruit Market, a Leading Regional Grocery Chain in Ontario.

Having a great service, product or company is never enough on its own; the market has to be aware of it

qdata, an industry leader in bar coding, RFID and wireless solutions, and Lucas Systems Inc., a leading provider of voice-directed warehouse applications, have received the CDN Channel Elite gold award for the Best Collaborative Solution for 2009. CDN (Computer Dealer News), a leading IT industry publication, which is part of ComputerWorld Canada, recognized qdata and Lucas for their innovative solution that was accomplished through successful collaboration and seamlessly delivered to Longo's a major Canadian grocery store chain.

The qdata-Lucas solution provided at Longo's, includes the RF Plus™ warehouse management software solution from qdata, running on Motorola MC9000 and WT4000 RF terminals, coupled with the Jennifer™ VoicePlus system from Lucas. This combined system allows order pickers at Longo's to capture the weight of products being picked, by scanning barcode on product cases. The Jennifer system communicates in real-time to the RF Plus system, delivering efficient, effective RF-based inventory control.

"We are pleased to be recognized by the CDN Channel Elite awards for our innovative warehouse management solutions and strong partnership with Lucas Systems," said Randall Bunka, Vice President and co-owner of qdata. "This honor validates the value proposition of qdata and our growing success in the marketplace."

"Having a great service, product or company is never enough on its own; the market has to be aware of it," said John Charleson, Director, Supply Chain Management and Information Technology - Longo's. "This award brings into sharp focus the efforts that both large and small companies need to achieve their goals in the market. Congratulations to both qdata and Lucas Systems! One of the key benefits that we have continually reaped is the working relationship and having a true partnership between our Longo's DC Operations Team, qdata and Lucas Systems."

"This CDN Award recognizes the unique value-add the Lucas and qdata partnership is delivering to customers like Longo's," says Chris Sweeney, Senior Vice President at Lucas Systems. "Our
companies share a commitment to working closely with customers to deliver applications optimized for their operations and business requirements, rather than selling them undifferentiated, voice-enabled WMS systems (http://qdata.com/software_speech_voice.asp). This award also validates our partnership approach, which is focused on working with complementary warehouse technology vendors that can deliver customer-focused solutions rather than reselling one-size-fits-all applications. This approach only works when both partners bring unique know-how and expertise to the table, which delivers far better customer results."
