Orlando, FL (PRWEB) September 13, 2005
Voxeo Corporation, the leading provider of standards-based Interactive Voice Response (IVR) platforms and hosting, announced today that it has been included in the 2005 Pulver 100. The Pulver 100 list features private companies in the communications sector that have substantial real-world deployments and enjoy significant growth rates.
Voxeo's 2005 Pulver 100 inclusion follows another year of continued growth, customer wins, and innovation for the company. Voxeo recently recorded its sixth consecutive quarter of profitable operations, with revenues and profits up over 100% from the previous year. To date, new customers in 2005 include The U.S. Department of Homeland Security, two of the world's largest international media companies, and one of the world's largest IVR service providers.
Voxeo's success in 2005 also shows solid proof of an industry-wide move towards standards-based VoIP technologies. Jeff Pulver, CEO of pulver.com, explained: "VoIP crossed the chasm in 2005, but companies like Voxeo have been working with VoIP since the beginning. Voxeo was one of the earliest champions of VoIP, so they were an obvious choice for this year's Pulver 100."
"Voxeo is honored to be included in the 2005 Pulver 100," said Jonathan Taylor, Voxeo's President and CEO. "Voxeo has helped lead the IP communications-based IVR and telephony application space since 1999, and we look forward to working with our customers and partners to deliver many more years of telephony innovation, open standards support, and profitable operations."
In 2005 Voxeo introduced two major, new, VoIP-centric products: the turnkey VoiceCenter Fusion VoIP gateway and telephony applications server (recently given Communications Solutions Magazine's prestigious "Product of the Year" award) and VoiceCenter 6.0, the latest version of its open, VoIP- and Web-standards-based telephony application platform software.
VoiceCenter 6 enables enterprises to reduce costs, increase revenues, and delight callers by automating their existing calls - or by launching entirely new services - with the world's most flexible, reliable, and proven standards-based IVR platform. Voxeo's VoiceCenter 6.0 release delivers over 50 enhancements to the VoiceCenter platform, including: flexible media server support, Voxeo's time-proven Call Control XML (CCXML) SIP proxy server, certified compliant VoiceXML 2.0 IVR support with VoiceXML 2.1 extensions, and a software-based telephony-card-to-SIP VOIP gateway module.
In combination, these features further enable the open interface, decoupled service, and decoupled hardware/software models that are driving new growth in the IP communications industry.
