AVST Facilitates a Mobile First Workplace with New Version of CX-E

Powerful New Mobility Features Satisfy the Need to Stay Connected Anytime, Anywhere

FOOTHILL RANCH, Calif., September 12, 2016Applied Voice & Speech Technologies, Inc. (AVST) today announced the newest version of its CX-E Unified Communications (UC) platform. With a focus on mobility features that bring greater levels of connectivity to the workplace, the new release accelerates a mobile first mindset for businesses of all sizes.

To facilitate the rapidly developing mobile workplace of its customers, AVST's latest version of CX-E makes available to all users, as part of the base licensing, its secure mobile client. The mobile client separates business and personal communications effortlessly from an iPhone® or Android™. This version also includes a number of built-in security enhancements to ensure all data is protected from the ever-changing threats facing mobile devices. In addition, the new release of CX-E offers SMS notification through popular public cloud provider Twilio.

It's a fact – instant access, always-connected, 24/7 availability is now the rule and not the exception. The mobile lifestyle we've become accustomed to in our personal lives has transitioned into the workplace where the same levels of access and connectivity are expected. This is particularly true for Millennials, who are the largest generation in the U.S. workforce as of 2015, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The result is that most businesses today are embracing a greater level of mobility to enhance productivity and create a positive and more personalized user experience for their workforce. Organizations that adopt this mobile first strategy will have a competitive advantage to attract and retain Millennials.

Employees are bringing the technologies they already use at home into the workplace. The digital workplace delivers a more social, mobile, accessible, and data-driven work environment that is better able to exploit changing business conditions to improve productivity. According to Gartner, "Make no mistake, social, cloud and information are also important ingredients for a successful digital workplace strategy, but the most visible, as well as the most impactful, element is mobile."1

"AVST continuously enhances CX-E to feature the latest in mobile technology," said Tom Minifie, AVST Chief Technology Officer. "Whether our customers use CX-E from the cloud or deploy it within their own IT infrastructure, we offer a number of powerful mobile features – from secure message management to sophisticated context-aware and speech-enabled personal assistant capabilities – to keep workers connected and productive while on the go."

Additional new features available in the latest release of CX-E are:

  • XMediusFAX® FoIP offering
  • Support for VMware® vSphere 6.0
  • Support for Neverfail with Microsoft Hyper-V®
  • TeamQ® team collaboration tool enhancements

The latest version of CX-E is now available through AVST's reseller channels worldwide. For more information about AVST's products, visit the company website at www.avst.com.
