October 29, 2009

Orange County, California-based communications solutions provider Applied Voice & Speech Technologies, Inc., or “AVST,” is demonstrating the latest version of its Unified Communications platform, CallXpress 8, at an upcoming industry seminar.

According to AVST, CallXpress 8 is a unified messaging system incorporating a suite of unified communications, or “UC,” applications such as advanced call processing, voicemail, unified messaging, personal assistant, fax, speech and notification. Offering unprecedented interoperability, CallXpress helps an organization to protect as well as extend its existing data and telephony infrastructure investment.
Nowadays many universities are constantly looking to increase the productivity as well as overall communications of its faculty, staff and students in a cost effective way. CallXpress 8’s UC capabilities help colleges as well as universities to become more mobile and productive.
Apart from showcasing CallXpress 8, AVST is educating college and university administrators on the benefits of UC at the upcoming seminar. The company will also be discussing the benefits of using CallXpress 8 at the seminar, company officials said.
Denny Michael, vice president of marketing, AVST, said that the company has seen great success in the higher education marketplace and looks forward to participating in all of the ACUTA regional seminars.
“Each year we help more higher education campuses replace their outdated voicemail systems, providing them with a next-generation communications-enabled platform that supports their Unified Communications needs,” Michael said.
Additionally, the company’s system is a natural fit for the ACUTA audience, making this the perfect place to co-strategize, while providing attendees with a forum to share information and actively participate in the development of AVST's future offerings, Michael added.
At the seminar, AVST will be educating the market on how to effectively migrate from a legacy voicemail environment to UC.
According to Hardy Myers, president and CEO of AVST, phased migration from legacy voicemail systems to UC will result in a strong return on UC investment.
ACUTA’s main purpose is to support higher education institutions in achieving optimal use of communications technologies. The association incorporates more than 1,700 individuals at nearly 800 institutions of higher education, with members ranging from small schools and community colleges to the 50 largest U.S. institutions.
