Share Article

Online seminar offers expert advice for replacing legacy voice mail systems with leading edge communications products that can be built out over time.

Applied Voice & Speech Technologies, Inc. (AVST) and Ziff Davis Media will present a live Web-based eSeminar titled "Future-Proof Your Enterprise Communications Infrastructure." The eSeminar is scheduled for Thursday, November 17, 2005 at 12:30 p.m. Eastern / 9:30 a.m. Pacific.

Communications technology is rapidly changing with the integration of voice and data applications, the workforce becoming more mobile and the rapid acceptance of Voice over IP (VoIP). According to AVST, it is more important than ever for companies to make sure they implement strategies to embrace these changes without having to completely rip out and replace their communications infrastructure.

“The communications network is the backbone of nearly every organization and can be costly and disruptive to replace,” said Denny Michael, AVST’s Vice President of Marketing. “This eSeminar provides a venue for business leaders to learn how to build a communications infrastructure using a road map that allows them to build out the right communications system over time instead of investing a great deal of time and money over a short timeframe.”

Continuing the effort to educate enterprise executives on the benefits of evolving from legacy voice mail systems to robust next generation solutions, the 30-minute eSeminar is targeted to enterprise-level CTO’s, CIO’s and IT managers. Its goal is to provide an open forum for dialogue that enables industry leaders to gain a deeper understanding of the need to replace outdated voice mail systems and the options available to them as they explore next generation communications strategies.

The eSeminar begins with a 20-minute presentation followed by a 10-minute Q&A session. Speakers include:

  • Pat Howard, Industry Visionary & Business Leader
  • Hardy Myers, President and CEO of AVST
  • Frank Derfler, VP Market Experts Group - Ziff Davis Media

Those who attend this eSeminar will learn:

  • Seven steps you should take to develop an enterprise communications strategy
  • How to migrate to IP telephony with virtually no disruption to employees and the organization, and no need for employee retraining
  • How a unified communications solution can improve employee productivity and extend your competitive advantage
  • How leverage your existing investment in communications infrastructure and still take advantage of technological advances

Attendees will also receive a Ziff Davis produced white paper titled "Building an Enterprise Communications Strategy Beyond Voice Mail." To register for this free, online seminar, please visit: http://www.eSeminarslive.com.
