AVST to Host Educational Webinar Series to Highlight Innovative Solutions

AVST Teams with Technology Partners to Educate Customers on Voicemail Archiving, Fax over IP and Enterprise-Wide Single Point of Administration

Foothill Ranch, Calif., August 17, 2009 – Continuing its mission to educate end users on increasing productivity across the enterprise, Applied Voice & Speech Technologies, Inc. (AVST) has teamed with three of its technology partners to launch a series of educational webinars.  The webinar series, titled “Extend the Power of the CallXpress® Platform,” will include presentations from Open Text Corporation, Unimax Systems Corporation and Vault Solutions LLC.

Organizations are looking to consolidate voice, fax, and data resources to cut costs and simplify their communications infrastructure. VoIP and FoIP have become critical to enterprises as they create a unified strategy for voice and data communications, allowing companies to reduce their total cost of ownership by eliminating telephony hardware and consolidating the management of voice, data, and fax communications.  The first webinar, titled “Top Reasons to Implement a Fax over IP (FoIP) Solution” will be presented by Open Text Corporation this Tuesday, August 18 at 8:30 a.m. Pacific Time.  While most customers are already familiar with the tight integration between CallXpress and RightFax®, the leading fax server product on the market today, this webinar will specifically address the benefits of implementing a FoIP solution.

A growing requirement for users in the enterprise communications marketplace is enterprise-wide single point of administration to help large scale organizations centralize and consolidate administration functions.  The next webinar will demonstrate how to administer multi-vendor PBX’s along with CallXpress and other business systems.  Presented by Unimax Systems Corporation, the “Unify and Simplify the Administration of Your Telephony and Business Systems” webinar is scheduled for Wednesday, August 19 at 11 a.m. Pacific Time.

E-mail archiving has been available for years now, and more and more companies, large and small, are implementing solutions  to be prepared for the inevitable discovery requests. Now voicemail messages have started to become an essential component of these discovery requests.   In the last webinar of the series, “Don't Put your Corporate Data at Risk!  Archive, Retain and Discover Your CallXpress Voicemail Messages,” AVST and Vault Solutions present how to archive, retain, and discover voicemail messages by leveraging Vault Solutions’ Archive Accelerator to store CallXpress voicemail messages.  This webinar will take place on Wednesday, September 9 at 11 a.m. Pacific Time.

Each webinar consists of a 30 to 45 minute presentation followed by a 15-minute Q&A session.  To register to attend one of these free educational webinars, please visit http://www.avst.com/r/cxug.asp.
