AVST Details Framework of UC Evolution at STC Fall 2013 Conference

Mobility, Hybrid Cloud Trends Redefining Future of Enterprise Communications

FOOTHILL RANCH, Calif., Oct. 1, 2013 – What lies at the intersection between Unified Communications (UC) and the new mobile and cloud initiatives that enterprises are undertaking? Applied Voice & Speech Technologies, Inc. (AVST) knows the answer: a complex set of new IT decisions need to be made. Organizations are increasingly being faced with the challenges that come with transitioning their legacy communications landscape to the future. Security, compliance, interoperability and ROI are all things that need to be considered. From October 1-4 at The Society of Telecommunications Consultants’ Annual Conference in Snowbird, Utah at the Snowbird Ski & Summer Resort, AVST will be on hand to give real-life examples of enterprises that have successfully architected their UC landscape for future success built around trends such as hybrid cloud and mobility.

On Thursday, October 3 from 2:20-2:40 p.m., Hardy Myers, President & CEO for AVST, will take consultants through a presentation titled, ‘From Fortune 500 Companies to the Nation’s Largest Universities: Framework for UC Evolution.’ Myers will provide insight into the UC initiatives happening at some of the country’s largest institutions - to aid attendees in their understanding of what the future holds for the UC market.

For more than five years now, AVST has been attending and speaking at the STC conference, viewing it as an ideal forum for connecting with telecommunications consultants. AVST’s focus at this year’s event will be on its recently released UC platform – CX-Series 8.5, which includes the enterprise class CX-E solution and the CX-S solution, which is designed for small-to-medium sized businesses. CX-Series 8.5 features AVST’s new individual UC productivity tool, Atom™. Directly answering the call for greater mobility, faster communications and support for cloud-based applications, Atom acts as a 24/7 personal assistant that understands the context of any given individual’s business situation. Atom learns a user’s context - including location - through geo-awareness within the mobile client or by sensing which Wi-Fi network is near, and syncs with a user’s calendar and instant messaging presence status.

“AVST has an extremely active consultant community, and we are committed to helping them build, expand and improve their UC expertise and services, allowing them to confidently recommend AVST solutions when and where they best meet client needs,” noted Denny Michael, Vice President of Marketing for AVST. “We believe they will find our CX 8.5 series to be a true game changer.”
