Foothill Ranch, CA (PRWEB) June 20, 2005
Applied Voice & Speech Technologies, Inc. (AVST), today announced a new business communications solution that delivers AVST's world class technology to smaller companies and enterprise branch offices. The CallXpressÂ® Server Bundle is designed to provide smaller businesses with the same powerful communications features and functionality that larger enterprises enjoy. The platform also supports the enterprise trend towards standardization of communications infrastructure across all geographic locations.
Aiming to help employees communicate and collaborate more productively and effectively regardless of physical location, the CallXpress Server Bundle is the ideal solution for small businesses of all types. AVST has packaged this edition of CallXpress as a bundled solution that offers the same robust features of its flagship product Â CallXpress 7.7 Â to support enterprise-like, application-rich communications on a smaller scale and at a lower price point.
"Extending our leadership in the enterprise communications space, AVST continues to deliver solutions that appeal to the broadest segment of the market," said AVST's President and CEO, Hardy Myers. "This CallXpress offering is exactly what our customers and resellers have been requesting. It meets the requirements of the SMB market and also supports larger enterprises that have branch or remote locations."
According to the United States Census Bureau, there are over five million small to medium businesses in the United States. Most of these companies continue to use obsolete first generation voice mail systems today. "Small to medium businesses have traditionally been early adopters of cutting-edge technologies," added Myers. "But until now, the pricing of second generation solutions like CallXpress 7.7 for the SMB market has generally been prohibitive. AVST is excited to offer a business communication solution bundle that is both appealing and affordable to companies in the SMB market that view their communications capabilities as a critical part of their business competitive advantage."
To offer the CallXpress Server Bundle, AVST partnered with IntelÂ® and Alliance Systems, an original design manufacturer (ODM) of high reliability servers and an authorized Intel distributor. The solution includes both hardware and software in a single, easy to install bundle and is immediately available in 4 and 8 port configurations through AVST's established reseller channels.
AVST has an extensive list of partners that sell and support its unified communications solutions throughout the world.
