AVST CEO Discusses Unified Communications Market Landscape at UC Summit

Emphasizes the Role of a Growing Mobile Workforce on the Evolution of Business Communications

LA JOLLA, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/28/14 -- Applied Voice & Speech Technologies, Inc. (AVST) this week at the 2014 UC Summit in La Jolla, Calif. is demonstrating the industry's most interoperable Unified Communications (UC) software platform, CX-E. At the event, AVST President & CEO Hardy Myers will provide insight into business strategies, product solutions and key market drivers impacting the UC sector.

Aligning customers with current and future UC trends and providing corresponding solutions is a primary focus for AVST. One key trend is mobility. At UC Summit, Myers will conduct two 40-minute sessions focusing on how mobile workforces are changing the way businesses communicate. Titled 'The Evolution of the Personal Assistant,' the sessions will explore how the surge of smart mobile devices coupled with a growing Millennials workforce is projected to accelerate the adoption of personal assistants for business users.

In addition, on Tuesday, April 29 at 11:15 a.m., Myers will present a UC Summit Success Story pointing to real case study examples that share successes achieved and obstacles faced when deploying UC solutions.

"With the workforce becoming more and more mobile every year, it follows that enterprises must keep pace with technology that provides the ability to stay connected anytime, anywhere," Myers said. "At UC Summit, we're shining a spotlight on this trend and offering best practices as to how UC technology can make the workforce more productive and efficient in a mobile world."

The typical business communications landscape is made up of a collection of technologies from multiple vendors, acquired over time and never intended to work together. AVST connects existing systems with new technologies for improved productivity across the entire business landscape.

"AVST's UC platform enables choice and flexibility in today's dynamic business environment, which is what customers are seeking," said Jim Burton, Co-Founder of UCStrategies.com and Producer of UC Summit 2014. "UC companies such as AVST offer our attendees extensive educational and networking opportunities aimed at accelerating worldwide adoption of UC."

Presented by UC Strategies, UC Summit is the only channel- and consultant-focused event for the UC industry. Covering UC applications, technologies, trends and challenges, UC Summit offers attendees the opportunity to learn actionable best practices, strategies and tactics from leading vendors, UC pioneers and thought leaders. Keynotes, workshops, private focus sessions, and panel and roundtable discussions offer attendees countless options to learn, with plenty of networking opportunities.
