VoiceObjects Receives INTERNET TELEPHONY® Magazine's 2006 Product of the Year Award

VoiceObjects 6 Phone Application Server Recognized for Outstanding Innovation

SAN MATEO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 9, 2007 -- VoiceObjects, the phone application server company, announced today that Technology Marketing Corporation (TMC®)'s INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine (www.itmag.com) has named VoiceObjects 6 as a recipient of a 2006 Product of the Year Award. INTERNET TELEPHONY has been the VoIP Authority Since 1998™.

"We are honored to win this prestigious award," said Beatriz Infante, president and chief executive officer, VoiceObjects. "Internet telephony has radically transformed the communications marketplace, driven by customer demand for operational efficiency. Likewise, customer demand for Web-like mobile access to customer service will radically transform the delivery of self-service applications over both VoIP and traditional telecommunications networks, replacing touch-tone-based IVR applications. The technology that can make this possible is VoiceObjects 6, a phone application server which enables carrier grade deployment and management of powerful over-the-phone self-service applications."

VoiceObjects 6, like all phone application servers, has the following four capabilities:

-- The ability to dynamically generate VoiceXML to create personalized dialogs with each caller at call-time, using information in an organization's CRM or other databases. The resulting caller-specific conversations provide opportunities to up-sell and cross-sell and higher rates of customer satisfaction and service adoption.

-- An application execution environment that supports remote management and monitoring of multimodal applications, online application maintenance for instant changes or rollbacks, and guaranteed high availability.

-- Web services support for easy integration between an organization's IVR and voice software and its CRM, ERP, and other IT assets in service-oriented architecture (SOA) environments, drastically reducing development time and cost.

-- Support for multimodal phone applications that may include voice, video, graphics and text interfaces, allowing user-friendly interactive applications that are unmatched in the phone-based self-service industry.

"INTERNET TELEPHONY is proud to bestow VoiceObjects with a 2006 Product of the Year Award. Each year, INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine recognizes companies that have demonstrated excellence in technological advancement and application refinements," said Rich Tehrani, TMC president and editor-in-chief of INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine. "VoiceObjects has proven they are committed to quality and excellence while addressing real needs in the marketplace. We're proud to honor their hard work and accomplishments and look forward to more innovative solutions from them in the future."

A full list of Product of the Year winners will be published in the February 2007 issue of INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine (www.itmag.com). For more information about TMC and INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine, please visit www.tmcnet.com.
