AVST Showcases Suite of UC Solutions Complementing Skype for Business at Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - Jul 11, 2016) - This week at the 2016 Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference in Toronto, Canada, Applied Voice & Speech Technologies, Inc. (AVST) is showcasing CX-E, its suite of enterprise-class Unified Communications (UC) solutions for Skype for Business, at booth #522.

AVST provides the only UC platform that connects Skype for Business with all major PBX brands while enabling essential UC features, including:

  • Powerful and highly scalable automated attendants that handle complex corporate call processing flows across multiple PBX brands simultaneously;
  • Intelligent call routing capabilities, including a "locate" feature to facilitate call completion;
  • Unified name directories utilizing speech or dial by name;
  • The only enterprise-class voice messaging solution for Skype for Business;
  • TeamQ®, a cost-effective call center for Skype for Business; and
  • A secure mobile client providing a powerful UC user interface across multiple PBX brands.

AVST recognizes that implementing an enterprise-wide deployment of Skype for Business is a long-term process that can take anywhere from one to three years. With CX-E, AVST delivers critical UC interoperability and UC enterprise-class applications that enable enterprises to deploy Skype for Business as their PBX replacement while transitioning from their existing telephony infrastructure.

"In many cases, it's not practical or economical for enterprises to forklift their existing PBX and go directly to Skype for Business," said AVST CTO Tom Minifie. "With CX-E's extensive interoperability, we're providing Microsoft partners and customers with a logical and cost-effective migration strategy for Skype for Business."

The interoperability of CX-E enables enterprises to connect up to 10 PBX types simultaneously. A range of telephony integrations are available, including 400+ traditional TDM, IP-PBX, Centrex and IP Centrex integrations for PBXs from Alcatel-Lucent, Avaya, Broadsoft, Cisco, GENBAND, Microsoft, Mitel, NEC, ShoreTel, and Unify.

Over the years, AVST has distinguished itself within Microsoft's partner ecosystem by achieving top-tier status, delivering best-of-breed enterprise-class UC solutions that enable and augment Skype for Business. AVST has been awarded Gold Communications Competency for Skype for Business environments.
