Pittsburgh Steelers Huddle with AVST for Unified Communications

AVST Selected to Enhance Mobility, Improve Productivity for Steelers Personnel

FOOTHILL RANCH, Calif., July 8, 2014Applied Voice & Speech Technologies, Inc. (AVST), a leading provider of best-of-breed Unified Communications (UC) applications, today announced that it has been selected by the National Football League’s Pittsburgh Steelers.

AVST is delivering unified messaging, voicemail, Atom™ personal assistant, mobile client, speech-enabled automated attendant, and more for the Steelers at the team’s corporate offices as well as its training facility, the UPMC Sports Performance Complex. An IP PBX shelf, located at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, services both locations. Pittsburgh-based Dagostino Electronic Services Inc. delivered the installation as the Steelers’ preferred technology provider and a trusted AVST reseller.

“The selection of AVST was an easy decision based on its 30-year history, track record of success and strong recommendation by Dagostino Electronic Services,” said Ryan Huzjak, Director of Partnerships and Sales for the Pittsburgh Steelers. “Having access to AVST’s mobility enhancements was a big plus. In the future, we plan to roll out unified messaging, personal assistant to manage business communications while on-the-go, and secure access to messages on a mobile client.”

According to Dagostino Vice President Chuck Roberts, “The NFL franchise sought a next-generation Unified Communications solution that could be deployed into its existing IT landscape. AVST is an industry leader in interoperability with proven solutions that we knew would meet the Steelers’ stringent requirements.”

Denny Michael, AVST’s Vice President of Marketing, said the company’s platform offers several off-the-field wins for the Steelers. “They are a first-rate franchise, and we are thrilled to be working with them. The team has a winning reputation – with eight Super Bowl appearances in the books. We look forward to helping the organization by delivering even greater staff productivity and fan experience through our solutions.”
