Bellevue, Wash., May 17, 2010 – Applied Voice & Speech Technologies, Inc. (AVST) is demonstrating its CallXpress® 8 Unified Communications (UC) solution at the annual NEC Users Group Conference this week at the Hyatt Regency in Bellevue, Wash.  AVST is spotlighting its CallXpress platform emphasizing its powerful features and support for NEC’s products.
