AVST Demonstrates Unprecedented Flexiblity In Unified Communications at VoiceCon Spring In Orlando

Company Executive to Speak About Migrating to Next-Generation Messaging Systems at the Event

Foothill Ranch, Calif., March 6, 2007 – Applied Voice & Speech Technologies, Inc. (AVST) is exhibiting new innovations in unified messaging as it announces the next version of its flagship platform, CallXpress®, at VoiceCon® Spring in Orlando, Fla. on March 5, 2007.  A product showcase as well as demonstrations of CallXpress 7.9 will take place at AVST’s booth (#535) on the show floor at the Gaylord Palms Resort & Conference Center from March 5-7, 2007.  In addition, the company’s Vice President of Product Management, Tom Minifie, will participate in a panel discussion titled, “Migrating Your Messaging System,” on Thursday, March 8 from 8:00 to 8:45 a.m. EST.

Now in its 17th year, VoiceCon is the leading conference and exhibition for enterprise voice, IP telephony and convergence in North America. The conference, produced by CMP Media, Business Technology Group, 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. AVST will be on hand to further its goal of educating end users about how to unify communications, specifically in environments that require the most flexible solutions. 

“As legacy communications systems are reaching end-of-life and the workforce becomes more mobile, enterprise decision makers are looking for unified communications solutions that fulfill the unique needs and requirements of their business,” said AVST’s Vice President of Marketing, Denny Michael.  VoiceCon is a perfect venue for us to highlight the benefits of the four ‘flavors’ of unified messaging offered by CallXpress 7.9.

AVST’s new CallXpress 7.9 unified communications solution, which delivers world-class call processing, voice messaging, unified messaging and advanced speech applications, is the only UC solution that gives IT managers a choice of four UM architectures based on the needs of their business.  IT managers can choose between server-based, client-based, secure and simplified architectures or mix and match architectures based on individual departmental requirements.  This unprecedented flexibility makes it the ideal UC solution for businesses of all sizes. 

CallXpress also offers a complete set of migration options from early generation products that are approaching end-of-life.  This enables customers to easily integrate CallXpress with communications technologies from other vendors, reducing the need for customers to invest in costly infrastructure replacement and user training programs.  As a result, CallXpress is an optimal choice for enterprise decision makers because it increases employee productivity and effectiveness at a minimal investment.

Continuing to demonstrate its leadership and commitment to innovation in the unified communications space, AVST has teamed up with Business Communications Review to deliver a series of educational programs, including webinars, a print ad campaign and an electronic banner campaign.  The latest webinar, titled “A VoiceCon Webinar: A Practical Approach to Unified Communications,” was developed in conjunction with VoiceCon Spring.  It can be viewed online at:
