SimpleScribe will free SMBs from the voicemail blackhole so they can focus on growing their businesses.
Dana Point, CA (PRWEB) September 16, 2008
SimpleSignal Inc., a leader in hosted telephone systems for businesses, announces a new voicemail-to-text service called SimpleScribe that allows small and medium businesses (SMBs) to more easily manage their voicemail messages by reading them. Built on GotVoice technology, a white label version of the SimpleScribe voicemail-to-text service is immediately available for channel partners.
"Let's be honest: Voicemail sucks. It's just faster to read your voicemails," said Dave Gilbert, president of SimpleSignal. "SimpleScribe -- combined with the single number that rings multiple phones capabilities of our hosted VoIP solution -- is ideal for fast companies and mobile workers who want to avoid the time sinkhole of listening to long messages and having to jot down notes."
The new SimpleScribe service converts voice messages into text and delivers them via email. SMBs can quickly review their voicemail at a glance, saving time from having to listen to lengthy voice messages. The service also sends voicemails to a user's email inbox as MP3 or WAV file attachments.
SimpleScribe scales to thousands of users and requires no hardware upgrades or resource commitment from IT departments. SimpleScribe allows users to:
- Receive voicemail as text and digital audio in their email inbox
- Forward messages to coworkers via email
- Archive all voicemail text and audio files for easy retrieval
- Use the service for both mobile and landline phones
SimpleSignal partnered with GotVoice to create SimpleScribe. GotVoice's voicemail-to-text technology works with nearly all major mobile and home phone carriers. "Partnering with SimpleSignal exposes our technology to people who can benefit from it the most -- small and medium businesses," said GotVoice CEO Curt Blake. "SimpleScribe will free SMBs from the voicemail blackhole so they can focus on growing their businesses."
