ORLANDO, Fla., February 25, 2008 – Applied Voice & Speech Technologies, Inc. (AVST) will exhibit its innovations in Unified Communications technology this week at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) '08 Annual Conference and Convention in Orlando, Fla.  Leveraging its experience in deploying CallXpress to over 500 healthcare organizations, AVST will spotlight real-life examples to demonstrate the benefits of Unified Communications.  Product demonstrations will take place at the AVST booth, #2411, on the show floor at the Orlando Convention Center from February 25-28, 2008.

The annual HIMSS conference is recognized as one of the world’s largest and most respected healthcare IT exhibitions in the country.  The theme for this year's HIMSS '08 conference is, “Innovation with Shared Vision."   More than 25,000 healthcare professionals and decision-makers are expected to attend this internationally recognized event.

Healthcare facilities continue to learn that Unified Communications brings added benefits that positively affect revenues, costs and customer satisfaction,” said AVST’s Vice President of Marketing, Denny Michael.  “HIMSS '08 provides a perfect venue for us to share with the healthcare industry the power and flexibility of our CallXpress solution to interoperate with an existing TDM and/or IP telephony infrastructure. We currently have more than 500 deployments in the healthcare industry today, and IT managers are rapidly beginning to understand the ROI that our flexible and highly integrated UC solution can bring to their organization," he added.

CallXpress delivers world-class call processing, voice mail, unified messaging, fax, notification and speech-enabled personal assistant capabilities to help healthcare organizations become more productive.  Staff can manage voice, fax and e-mail messages from any location at any time—via laptop, telephone, cell phone or the Internet.  In addition, the platform is the ideal solution to replace legacy voice mail systems as well as support the latest IP-PBX integrations.  CallXpress was developed to offer quick and painless conversions to next generation technology through speedy implementation, simple administration and maintenance, and telephone user interface emulations that are already familiar to users resulting in minimal training.
