AVST Previews Atom - New Total Office Manager - at Enterprise Connect

User Productivity Redefined: Atom Brings Total Office and Mobile Management Capabilities

ORLANDO, Fla., March 18, 2013 Get ready for the next generation of user productivity. Applied Voice & Speech Technologies, Inc. (AVST), a leading provider of best-of- breed Unified Communications (UC) software, is previewing what analyst Michael Finneran of dBrn Associates, Inc. calls, "a first in enterprise mobility" Atom, the next generation 'AVST Total Office Manager.' Say hello to Atom at Booth #519 at the Enterprise Connect Show from March 18-21 at the Gaylord Palms in Orlando.

Acting as a dedicated, 24/7 office manager, Atom brings new location-based services, federated presence and a multi-lingual speech interface to the workplace ramping up productivity and keeping you connected wherever you go.

"We're excited to preview Atom to our customers the capabilities it brings make it a true game-changer for the mobile worker," said Tom Minifie, AVST's Chief Technology Officer.  "Atom redefines user productivity, keeps callers informed of your status, and enables people to work smarter. Through personal assistant applications like Apple's Siri or Google Search for Android, consumers are already familiar with this type of automated assistance. We've taken our 15+ years of experience in delivering speech-enabled personal assistant applications and added location, context and presence, which has led to Atom, the latest personal productivity offering from AVST."

On the move? Atom's location-based services know when you've arrived at the office, reached home or are anywhere in-between and will deliver your calls to the optimal device. Atom is built with the most sought after mobile features including: unified messaging, hands-free speech access, single number reach, mobile number protection, location-based services and a native mobile client for iPhone and Android. Atom lets you manage your business calls, messages, contacts and presence status.

Simply speak up, Atom hears you.  Atom is built with the world's leading speech recognition engine from Nuance, which uses your voice to manage your business activities, such as "Call John Smith," "Get new messages" and "Get my calendar for today."  Plus, Atom is multi-lingual and speaks and understands your language.

Need to let others know when you are away from your desk? Atom is in sync with your calendar, and notifies callers you are "in a meeting and will be back at 10 a.m."  Atom also keeps an eye on your instant messaging presence and will not send calls to your device when set to 'Do not disturb.'

Atom connects to the cloud, delivering unified messaging to multiple email systems (premise-based and public cloud) including Microsoft Exchange and Office 365, Lotus Notes, Google Gmail, Novell GroupWise and any IMAP4 compliant e-mail system.   Atom also connects to your contacts and calendar to maximize your productivity.

Additionally, this week at Enterprise Connect, Tom Minifie, AVST's Chief Technology Officer, will be speaking on the 'Top Three Strategic Trends for UC: Cloud, Mobility and Interoperability' on Tuesday, March 19, from 2:30-3:15 p.m.  While at the show, attendees should stop by AVST's Booth #519 to learn about Atom and be entered into a  drawing for a chance to win one of three iPad minis.

Atom will be available in CX-E/S 8.5, which will be released in the next quarter through AVST's established reseller channels worldwide.
