Unified Communications Provider Demonstrates Solutions for the Higher Education Market

FOOTHILL RANCH, Calif., July 31, 2007 – This week at Campus Technology 2007, Applied Voice & Speech Technologies, Inc. (AVST) is showcasing its flagship unified communications platform, CallXpress, and its new broadcast notification application, NotifyXpress.  CallXpress and NotifyXpress are available for demonstration at booth #411 on the show floor at the Renaissance Hotel in Washington, DC from July 31-August 1.  In addition, AVST’s Vice President of Product Management, Tom Minifie, will conduct a classroom session on how colleges and universities can benefit from a unified communications solution on August 1 at 2:30 p.m in the Presentation Theater on the exhibition floor.

Campus Technology 2007 is tailored to the needs of administrators, IT professionals, and faculty in higher education. The focus is on technologies of strategic interest to the mission of higher education, whether in the classroom or campus-wide. The 14th annual Campus Technology Higher Education Technology Conference gives participants an opportunity to discover the latest in technology products, services and applications.

Attendees to Campus Technology 2007 can view demonstrations of AVST’s CallXpress, the industry’s most flexible unified communications platform on the market.  In addition, AVST’s recently announced NotifyXpress will be available for demonstration for the first time.  NotifyXpress enables the recording and delivery of messages to audiences small and large, simply and effectively. Now, campus administrators can deliver tens, hundreds or thousands of personalized outbound phone messages per day to alert and notify staff or students of timely, valuable information.  NotifyXpress was designed specifically for the education industry and is ideal for issuing appointment reminders, emergency message notification, closure announcements and status of services notifications.

“This conference is an important opportunity for campus administrators to get in touch and discover the latest and greatest technologies to upgrade their campus’ aging communications platforms,” said Denny Michael, Vice President of Marketing for AVST.  CallXpress is a time-tested solution that helps educational institutions improve the productivity of faculty and staff enabling them to be more responsive to the needs of the student population and their families.  We’re looking forward to sharing the benefits of both CallXpress and NotifyXpress with conference attendees.”
