AVST Spotlights CallXpress® Unified Communications at VoiceCon® Spring 2006 in Orlando

Enterprise Communications Provider Demonstrates its Unified Messaging and Advanced Speech Solutions; CEO Discusses Messaging in an IP World

FOOTHILL RANCH, Calif., March 6, 2006 – Applied Voice & Speech Technologies, Inc. (AVST), a leading provider of unified communications solutions for businesses of all sizes, is showcasing its flagship platform, CallXpress, at VoiceCon Spring 2006 this week in Orlando, Fla.  AVST is emphasizing unified messaging and speech enabled call management for the enterprise as it demonstrates the capabilities of the CallXpress product line at Island Booth #535 in the exhibit hall at Gaylord Palms Hotel.

During the conference, AVST’s President and CEO, Hardy Myers, will deliver a product briefing titled “Messaging in an IP World” on Tuesday, March 7 at 6:30 p.m. in Briefing Room 2.  “Communications technology is rapidly changing due to the integration of voice and data applications, the workforce is becoming more mobile and is rapidly demonstrating acceptance of IP telephony,” said Myers.  “This product briefing will demonstrate how companies can implement strategies to embrace these changes without having to completely replace their existing communications infrastructure.”

VoiceCon, now in its 16th year, is the leading conference and exhibition for enterprise voice, IP telephony and convergence in North America. VoiceCon brings decision makers together with the industry's pioneering end users, vendors and consultants to focus on the issues central to enterprise voice networks and the migration to IP telephony and convergence.  “We are leveraging this forum to emphasize the trend to replace outdated voice mail systems with robust unified messaging and advanced speech enabled call management solutions,” added AVST’s Vice President of Marketing Denny Michael.

AVST’s flagship product, CallXpress, delivers advanced unified messaging and speech-enabled capabilities that are designed for companies of all sizes.  The solution combines voice, fax and email messages in one inbox and makes them accessible via telephone, wireless device or computer.  CallXpress allows employees to communicate and collaborate more productively and effectively because users can receive and respond to messages anywhere, anytime.  That means customers aren't left waiting, mobile workers are accessible and urgent messages are available right away. CallXpress greatly increases service levels and also provides a consistent corporate interface to the customers.

Always striving to provide the most convenient and cost effective solutions in the market to better serve its customers and reseller channel, AVST recently announced a new line of telephony servers that offer a bundled, all-in-one voice and data communications platform for convenience, high performance and scalability.  The telephony server product line, which gives users a single point of contact for all of their messaging needs, features three versions: the CallXpress T-2000 telephony server offers a cost-effective communications solution for small-to-medium businesses; the CallXpress I-4000 and the CallXpress I-6000 telephony servers are powerful, high performance servers ideal for medium to large enterprises.
