04-01-2008

SpinVox announced it has been selected by Avaya for membership in the Avaya DevConnect program.

LONDON and ATLANTA, Ga. – SpinVox, the founder and a global leader in Voice-to-Screen messaging, today announced it has been selected by Avaya Inc., a leading global provider of business communications applications, systems and services, for membership in the Avaya DevConnect program.

 

SpinVox is the developer of a voicemail-to-text service, an application that captures the content of a spoken message, converts it to text and sends to any PC, mobile phone or PDA as either an email or text message. As a result, companies can receive their voice messages in text form – they can see what was said and determine how, if and when they want to respond.

 

The Avaya DevConnect program promotes the development, compliance-testing and co-marketing of innovative third-party products that are compatible with standards-based Avaya solutions. Member organizations have expertise in a broad range of technologies – including IP telephony, contact centers and mobility applications – helping companies extend the value of multivendor networks and transform voice into an intelligent business application that delivers true value to the bottom line. 

 

"Membership in Avaya's developer community will help us build our business by expanding the availability and application of our voice-to-text services," said Christina Domecq, CEO of SpinVox. "Building on Avaya resources and working more closely with the company, we will be able to extend our voice-to-text product suite to a previously untapped market of enterprise users, enabling true unified communications by bridging the gap between the voice and data worlds."

 

The Avaya DevConnect program currently includes thousands of software and hardware developer companies, integrators, service providers and customers. Members have created a broad array of innovative solutions tested for Avaya compliance, including natural language speech recognition applications, wireless services, specialized computer telephony integration and reporting capabilities, and applications tailored for specific vertical industries.

 

Through the DevConnect program, Avaya provides a number of tools and capabilities to member companies. One example is Application Enablement Services (AES) - a set of application programming interfaces, protocols and Web services that makes it easier for developers to create Avaya-compatible networks, devices and applications.

 

"With the involvement of companies like SpinVox, our Avaya developer community has become a catalyst for rapid innovation - creating multivendor applications that help enterprises around the world unleash powerful new possibilities for operating more efficiently and effectively," said Eric Rossman, vice president, developer relations and technical alliances, Avaya. "We help businesses embed secure, reliable Intelligent Communications into the very fabric of their organization so employees and customers have ready access to information regardless of where they are and how they prefer to communicate."

 

As a member of the DevConnect program, companies have access to a wide range of support from Avaya, including technical resources and training. There are three levels of membership – Registered, Gold and Platinum – each entailing progressive levels of marketing and sales involvement. Free Registered membership is available to anyone interested in designing Avaya-compatible solutions. Gold-level members and Platinum members must meet rigorous Avaya criteria for customer satisfaction, product support, business operations, marketing and sales. SpinVox is a Platinum member of the Avaya DevConnect program.

 

Membership information and a listing of solutions developed and tested under the DevConnect program are available at www.avaya.com/devconnect.
