UCStrategies Taps AVST Thought Leadership at UC Summit

AVST Presents Multiple Sessions at Industry Event; Addresses Skype for Business Transition and UC Trends

LA JOLLA Calif., November 16, 2015 – With more than 30 years of innovation in Unified Communications (UC), Applied Voice & Speech Technologies, Inc. (AVST) has built a global following of more than 20 million users in the education, government, healthcare enterprise, and hospitality markets. This week at UC Summit in La Jolla, California, AVST will leverage this experience to share insights, tips and case studies that address the major trends affecting the UC landscape – most notably the transition to Skype for Business.

At UC Summit, AVST President & CEO Hardy Myers will aid enterprise decision makers as they begin their journey toward the transition to Skype for Business. On Monday, November 16 at 3 p.m., Myers will lead a consultant focused session titled, "Skype for Business: Success Story and Adoption Trends." On Tuesday, November 17 at 1 p.m., Myers will present a UC Summit Success Story that explores the challenges faced by a London government agency when transitioning from a traditional PBX to Skype for Business. The case study details how AVST helped to facilitate a smooth transition to this agency's digital future.

"Among many trends in the UC space, Skype for Business is one of the most important topics we'll cover this year at UC Summit," said Jim Burton, Co-Founder of UCStrategies and Producer of UC Summit 2015. "As a longtime Microsoft Partner and technology innovator, AVST's CX-E industry-leading interoperability with all major PBXs enables businesses to deploy Skype for Business as a full or partial PBX replacement."

Presented by UCStrategies, UC Summit is a unique, invitation-only event serving four constituencies: UC vendors, solutions integrators, consultants and enterprise customers. Covering UC applications, technologies, trends and challenges, UC Summit offers attendees the opportunity to learn actionable best practices, strategies and tactics from leading vendors, UC pioneers and thought leaders.  Keynotes, workshops, private focus sessions, and panel and roundtable discussions offer attendees countless options to learn, with plenty of networking opportunities.
