AVST to Host Migrating Your Legacy Voicemail Solution to Unified Communications Webinar

FOOTHILL RANCH, CA--(Marketwire - June 22, 2009) - Applied Voice & Speech Technologies, Inc. (AVST) today announced that it will host an educational Webinar titled, "Migrating Your Legacy Voicemail Solution to Unified Communications." The Webinar will take place Wednesday, June 24th, 2009 at 2:00 p.m. EDT / 11:00 a.m. PDT.

This educational Webinar will explore benefits and risk associated when transitioning from your legacy voicemail system to Unified Communications. CallXpress® from AVST has been purposely built to remove the uncertainties that have been associated with this transition. The CallXpress platform is one of the industry's most popular and respected replacement strategies for legacy voicemail replacement for systems such as Octel® Aria® and Serenade® (VMX), Mitel® NuPoint with Centigram interface, Avaya® INTUITY™ AUDIX®, and Nortel® Meridian Mail.

CallXpress integrates with over 250 PBXs from circuit-switched to packet-switched IP environments, offering advanced call processing and voicemail functionality while also providing next generation communication capabilities for future growth. An appealing advantage of CallXpress is its ability to emulate various legacy telephone user interfaces within the same system. This capability is valuable in minimizing training time and thus enhances user productivity. With 26 years building communications applications, AVST delivers call processing, voicemail, unified messaging, personal assistant, fax, speech and notification.

"Unified Communications can bring substantial benefits that positively impact costs, revenues and customer satisfaction," said Denny Michael, AVST's Vice President of Marketing. "Our Webinars are a key element in our commitment to educate end users on how to unify communications, especially in enterprise environments where flexible solutions are key."

Dick Ready, AVST Senior Sales Engineer, will be the featured speaker. Ready has over 20 years in the telecommunications industry in positions ranging from operations management to sales engineering, supporting a wide range of products and technologies, including PBX, call center, IVR, VoIP and messaging.

The hour-long session will be interactive in nature, with audience polls and ample time allotted for Q&A from the audience. Attendees will leave the session with an understanding of what is driving businesses to adopt Unified Communications, and how these same drivers may be at work in their own enterprise.
