ATLANTA, GA - Fast-Talk, creator of audio searching technology, announced that Aspen Systems Corporation, an information management company, joined the Fast-Talk value-added reseller program. Aspen will leverage Fast-Talk solutions for audio mining applications. Additionally, Aspen announced its first customer using Fast-Talk's technology, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), an independent regulatory agency within the Department of Energy. FERC is responsible for regulating the transmission, and sale or resale of a variety of energy resources such as natural gas, oil, electricity and hydroelectric power in interstate commerce, and is using Fast-Talk technology to search audio content in ongoing investigations related to these markets. "Both public and private sector customers are excited to use Fast-Talk's unique technology for a variety of applications like indexing and searching audio deposition transcripts, and real time monitoring of phone calls for code words and specific phrases," said Stan Morgenstein, Aspen's director of legal services. "We anticipate strong sales in the surveillance, homeland security, legal, law enforcement, corrections institution and information management markets." Located in Rockville, MD, Aspen will market and sell Fast-Talk's audio search technology directly, and will integrate it into other COTS systems to provide turnkey solutions. "Aspen has a proven track record as a reseller and systems integrator," said Rich Chaloux, vice president federal sales at Fast-Talk. "I am extremely confident in the company's ability to provide critical solutions for our customers in the Washington, D.C. market."
