AVST Offers Resellers High Impact Product and Sales Training During Tour of Nine American Cities

Third Installment of CallXpress® Success Seminar Series Provides Strategic Sales Tools and Techniques for Unified Communications Solution Providers

Foothill Ranch, Calif., August 8, 2007Building on a rich tradition of educating the market about and promoting awareness of unified communications, Applied Voice & Speech Technologies, Inc. (AVST), today announced plans for its third series of high-impact sales training seminars for resellers throughout the United States.  The CallXpress Success Seminars are offered to qualified AVST resellers and will take place throughout the month of August 2007 in nine cities across the country.

AVST, a leading provider of unified communications solutions, originally designed the CallXpress Success Seminar to help resellers accelerate revenue growth by making their sales teams proficient in selling its products.  The Success Seminar tour has become an important staple in the education and training of AVST’s reseller partners, as participants learn valuable tips on how to prospect and qualify sales opportunities, improve and maintain customer satisfaction, increase the closing ratio, improve time efficiency, create more compelling product presentations and negotiate the best deals.

“These seminars have been a huge hit in the past because they have enabled participating resellers to maximize their sales potential by leveraging the leadership and respect of our CallXpress solution,” said AVST’s Vice President of Marketing, Denny Michael.  “It’s an exciting time for channel partners as UC solutions are more popular than ever and we have armed them with the most flexible solution in the market.”

This series of seminars will focus on the innovative features, capabilities and benefits of the new version of CallXpress 7.9, which is the only unified communications solution that gives IT managers a choice of four unified messaging architectures based on the needs of their business.  In addition, participants will receive an introduction to NotifyXpress™, the popular CallXpress feature that provides cost-effective outbound notification.
