AVST Addresses Changing UC Landscape at ACUTA Annual Conference

Spotlights Benefits of Highly Interoperable UC Platform That Integrates Existing Technology with New

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Mar 20, 2017) - Booth #301 -- With the continued adoption of the cloud, as well as the rapid pace of consolidations and the emergence of new vendors, the Unified Communications (UC) landscape is ever-changing. To keep pace with these changes, it's vital for educational institutions to stay up-to-date on current trends and their options for deploying new, secure UC applications. With that in mind, this week at the ACUTA Annual Conference & Exhibition, Applied Voice & Speech Technologies, Inc. (AVST) is on hand to help educational institutions future-proof today and tomorrow's UC investments.

AVST's solutions offer the broadest interoperability of any UC platform on the market, enabling organizations to deploy advanced enterprise-class voice, mobility, business process, and team communications applications while leveraging existing and future IT investments. With a long-standing history in higher education, AVST's solutions have been adopted by many of the largest public and private universities in the United States and Canada.

"Whether it's emerging vendors, fresh acquisitions or new technology, the one constant in the UC space is change," said Denny Michael, AVST Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "Organizations must be able to adapt, but that doesn't mean tossing away all the old and replacing with new -- a middle ground can be achieved. AVST is well-positioned to help in this transition. Our highly interoperable UC platform enables educational institutions and others to add productivity-enhancing applications on top of their mixed UC infrastructure -- from Avaya to Cisco, Google, Microsoft and others -- whether on premise or in the cloud."

AVST is a corporate affiliate of ACUTA and has been acknowledged for its support of the organization's regional and national events.
