SpinVox: SpinVox Enables Skydeck's Voicemail-to-Text Conversion on "your cell phone, online"

London, Jan 23, 2009 (M2 PRESSWIRE via COMTEX) --
SpinVox, a global leader in voice to content messaging, announced today that the company's voicemail-to-text conversion service is being used by Skydeck as it launches an enhanced service that allows users to manage mobile phone conversations in the same way that email is managed online.


Called Skydeck -"your cell phone, online" - one of the new key features is the storing of all voicemails including both the audio file and a converted version sent to the user by email and SMS text. SpinVox is powering the conversion through its reseller relationship with uReach.

Now Skydeck customers will be able to see their voicemail, text messages, calls, contacts and the last time they talked to a contact, right from their desktop. Users can also make notes about conversations or the voicemail messages they receive.

"As Skydeck makes messaging and communications more functional, efficient and manageable, a partnership with SpinVox is very natural," said Christina Domecq, CEO of SpinVox. "This is a great example of how, by converting voice messages to digital content, people can store, forward and prioritise their messages easily and quickly as they would an email or text message"

Skydeck was launched in beta last July to help people manage their mobile phones online. The new version, launched on this week , includes a number of enhancements in addition to the integration of SpinVox voice-to-text. Combining SpinVox with Skydeck provides a very powerful aggregation tool for a subscriber's complete call and messaging activity and grows the reach of voice to text services .
