Mobility Among Top Trends Addressed by AVST at EDUCAUSE

ANAHEIM, Calif., Booth #1358, October 25, 2016 – Today's increasingly mobile workplace has extended to the higher education sector – with an ever-growing number of faculty and staff needing access to their institution's network and resources while away from their offices and classrooms. This week at the EDUCAUSE 2016 Annual Conference, Applied Voice & Speech Technologies, Inc. (AVST) is showcasing its newest release of CX-E, which now provides a secure mobile client to all users. AVST's secure mobile client helps faculty and staff manage inbound and outbound calls, messages, contacts, availability, and personal preferences.

AVST Leadership in EducationWith more than 1,200 educational institutions worldwide utilizing its technology for campus-wide communications, AVST knows what it takes to bring secure mobile communications to higher education. The largest public and private universities in the U.S. – as well as the largest university in Canada – use AVST solutions.

As faculty have gone mobile, voice remains the communications channel of choice. Picking up the phone is the top option when information needs to be exchanged and decisions need to be made. AVST increases first time call completion so the most critical inbound calls have the best chance to reach faculty and staff no matter where they are located. Through context-based call routing, information is collected from a variety of sources including location, calendar and presence. When a call cannot be answered by a recipient, AVST can deliver a message that explains why. This message can include return date/time information so that callers are able to make an informed decision as to whether they should leave a message or try another person.

"We continuously strive to provide higher education institutions with the applications they need to be efficient and responsive in their interactions," said AVST Senior Vice President of Sales & Marketing Denny Michael. "We are pleased to once again attend EDUCAUSE and impart our knowledge of UC best practices."

A nonprofit association, EDUCAUSE is the foremost community of IT leaders and professionals committed to advancing higher education. With over 7,000 attendees, the EDUCAUSE Annual Conference presents a robust, community-generated program that explores the toughest IT issues facing higher education.
