AVST Demonstrates CallXpress at VoiceCon Amsterdam 2008

Highlights International Case Studies with European Audience Looking to Replace Legacy Voicemail Solutions with Unified Communications

AMSTERDAM, The Netherlands, October 14, 2008 - Applied Voice & Speech Technologies, Inc. (AVST) will exhibit its flagship Unified Communications solution, CallXpress®, this week at VoiceCon® Amsterdam 2008.   Demonstrations of CallXpress will take place at AVST’s stand #41 in the Demo Pavilion Lounge Forum at the Amsterdam RAI from October 14-16, 2008.  AVST will highlight international user case studies to display the flexibility and ease with which the product can be deployed. 

VoiceCon Amsterdam addresses two fundamental concerns for every enterprise: How to select and build the right IP telephony platform and how to leverage that system to improve how an organization does business.  The conference brings together enterprise IT and communications executives, along with equipment vendors, service providers network operators, consultants and analysts to focus on the issues central to enterprise voice networks and the migration to IP telephony and convergence.

VoiceCon Amsterdam is committed to one goal: To help attendees make the best decisions possible about IP telephony, converged networks and Unified Communications.  As one of the world’s leading experts in the industry, AVST will be on hand to further its goal of educating end users about how to select and deploy a Unified Communications solution.

“Legacy voicemail systems are reaching end of life and decision makers are faced with making critical choices that will ultimately determine the future of their communications infrastructure,” said AVST’s Vice President of Marketing, Denny Michael. “There are many options available and we maintain our commitment to educating the market on how to transition from legacy systems to next generation communications solutions.”

With the ability to support multiple PBXs simultaneously and the experience of more than 40,000 deployments worldwide, AVST has the technical capability and experience to provide a secure migration path to next-generation Unified Communications.   As announced last week, U.S.-based industry analyst firm COMMfusion ranked AVST as the leading provider of unified messaging (UM) in terms of “completeness of solution.” COMMfusion evaluated 16 vendors and CallXpress was identified as having the most complete UM solution of those evaluated.

CallXpress delivers world-class call processing, voicemail, unified messaging, fax, notification and speech-enabled personal assistant and automated attendant capabilities to help organisations become more productive.  The platform is the ideal solution to replace legacy voicemail 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. 

AVST has an extensive list of partners that sell and support its Unified Communications solutions throughout the world.  For sales information, visit the company website at www.avst.com.
