Since 1999, Voxeo’s mission has been to simplify telephony application design and delivery
Orlando, FL (PRWEB) July 20, 2006
Voxeo Corporation, the only provider of hosted IVR services with a 100% uptime guarantee, today announced the acquisition of VoiceReady, a privately held company whose web-based graphical design and reporting solutions enable the rapid delivery and management of VoiceXML and VoIP-based telephony applications. VoiceReady will be re-launched on August 30th as Evolution Designer and will become part of Voxeo’s widely used Evolution customer and developer portal.
Evolution Designer enables rapid “Do it Yourself” or “Customer Self Service” delivery of speech, VoIP, and IVR applications while providing a significant reduction in costs. In a side-by-side comparison with industry-standard development cycles, Designer reduced the time and cost required to create telephony applications by more than 60%. Designer’s simple, non-technical interface makes it easy for anyone to quickly build, deploy, and manage telephony applications. Small businesses -- or even groups within large enterprises -- can use Designer to deliver voice applications without writing a single line of code or requiring specialized IT or developer resources.
Designer will be available at no charge to members of Voxeo’s Evolution Community developer program. Evolution Community is one of the largest and most active voice application developer programs in the world, with over 21,000 registered members who have created more than 38,000 applications. The addition of Designer to the Evolution program will give Voxeo's existing telephony developers, customers, and partners a powerful new tool to create, debug, and deploy voice applications faster than ever before.
“Since 1999, Voxeo’s mission has been to simplify telephony application design and delivery,” said Jonathan Taylor, President and CEO of Voxeo. “As we looked to further reduce the cost and complexity of building speech applications, we found an ideal solution and acquisition opportunity with the VoiceReady technology and team.”
John Amein, VoiceReady’s CEO, added: “The VoiceReady team is delighted to be joining Voxeo. The VoiceReady platform incorporates extensive speech application best practices, learned by our team over the course of five years of voice application development. Evolution Designer brings this experience to Voxeo’s existing developer base and to new users who have never built a speech application before.”
In addition to Evolution Designer’s simple, targeted self-service application deployment capabilities, Voxeo will continue to promote more comprehensive application development solutions from partners such as VoiceObjects and Vicorp.
