Southern California Distributor Achieves Platinum Status as an Active Voice Channel Partner

Seattle, Washington, USA—June 20, 2006— Active Voice, LLC, a global provider of voice messaging, unified communications and speech-activated solutions, has joined forces with Digital Telecommunications Corporation of Van Nuys, California to distribute Active Voice’s Seven speech-enabled auto attendant system to customers nationwide. Digital Telecommunications, a full service systems integrator, has recently achieved Platinum status as an Active Voice channel partner.

“High-performing resellers like Digital Telecommunications help us provide communications solutions that can meet the requirements of customers’ unique organizations,” said Mike Ridgeway, Director of Marketing for Active Voice. “We look forward to working more closely with Digital as they introduce our innovative Seven product to their customers across the country.”

“We have been distributing Active Voice products for over 20 years,” said Ray Maccani, Vice President of Sales for Digital Telecommunications Corporation. “The company has always had a strong reputation for building quality solutions that work in a variety of business environments. Having access to cutting-edge products like Seven allows us to offer our customers an excellent solution to fit their business communications needs. The Seven system is so popular today because it provides technology that can help organizations streamline their communications, increase productivity and generate enhanced returns on telephony infrastructure investments.”

Active Voice’s Seven product is an Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) system designed for organizations of all sizes in virtually every industry, including healthcare, hospitality, government, education, and financial services. As a personalized frontline call management system, Seven can help organizations better manage their internal and external call volume. Seven asks callers to say the name of the person or department they wish to reach, retrieves the name from a database, and then connects them to the appropriate extension. Seven can help reduce call-waiting times by allowing callers to reach their destination without the assistance of an operator or company directory. The Seven system enables organizations to provide constant access to important ‘information on request,’ such as hours of operation and directions without utilizing a live operator. Seven allows mobile workers to stay in touch by using the system to access the company directory and their own Microsoft® Outlook® contacts, so they can reach their customers and colleagues by just saying their name.
