The CallXpress platform is one of the industry's most popular and respected replacement strategies for legacy voicemail replacement for systems such as Octel® Aria® and Serenade® (VMX), Mitel® NuPoint with Centigram interface, Avaya® INTUITY™ AUDIX®, and Nortel® Meridian Mail.

CallXpress integrates with over 250 PBX's from circuit-switched to packet-switched IP environments, offering advanced call processing and voicemail functionality while also providing next generation communication capabilities for future growth.  An appealing advantage of CallXpress is its ability to emulate various legacy telephone user interfaces within the same system.  This capability is valuable in minimizing training time and thus enhances user productivity. With 26 years building communications applications, AVST delivers call processing, voicemail, unified messaging, personal assistant, fax, speech and notification.

“Unified Communications can bring substantial benefits that positively impact costs, revenues and customer satisfaction,” said Denny Michael, AVST’s Vice President of Marketing.  “Our Webinars are a key element in our commitment to educate end users on how to unify communications, especially in enterprise environments where flexible solutions are key.”

Dick Ready, AVST Senior Sales Engineer, will be the featured speaker.  Ready  has over 20 years in the telecommunications industry in positions ranging from operations management to sales engineering, supporting a wide range of products and technologies, including PBX, call center, IVR, VoIP and messaging.

The hour-long session will be interactive in nature, with audience polls and ample time allotted for Q&A from the audience.  Attendees will leave the session with an understanding of what is driving businesses to adopt Unified Communications, and how these same drivers may be at work in their own enterprise.
