San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) February 1, 2006
Voxeo Corporation, the leading provider of standards-based Interactive Voice Response (IVR) and Voice-over-IP (VoIP) platforms and hosting, and Vicorp, the market leader for end-to-end VoiceXML service creation and application delivery tools, today announced a partnership that will bundle Voxeo’s Prophecy voice platform with Vicorp’s xMP service creation software.
Vicorp’s xMP enables enterprises to quickly and easily build and deploy voice-driven telephony applications using an easy, comprehensive suite of service creation tools, leveraging a flow-chart like drag-and-drop development model. xMP includes the most advanced, standards-based VoiceXML application and service creation tools available today.
Voxeo's Prophecy voice platform delivers the most feature-filled - yet simple and cost-effective - VoiceXML telephony application platform available. Prophecy includes the worlds first 100% certified compliant VoiceXML browser, the worlds most widely used CCXML browser, high-quality speech recognition and speech synthesis, call conferencing, call recording, and comprehensive SIP-based VOIP telephony support, in a single 350 megabyte download with zero configuration requirements.
In combination, these solutions give customers access to both a powerful standards-based voice platform and best-of-breed tools to create voice applications on that platform. The solutions will be sold by both Voxeo and Vicorp, and will also be available for free trials in Voxeo's Evolution developer portal, located at http://evolution.voxeo.com. As part of the relationship, Voxeo and Vicorp will also jointly develop solutions to extend xMP software with enhanced Call Control XML (CCXML) and Computer Telephony Integration (CTI) capabilities.
“After extensively evaluating all VoiceXML service creation solutions on the market, Vicorp was clearly the perfect development-tool partner for Voxeo," said Jonathan Taylor, President and CEO of Voxeo. “Vicorp and Voxeo share an important goal: to make it extremely easy for our customers to create, deploy, and manage the widest variety of voice applications.
