Voice Assist has completed the purchase of the assets of SpeechPhone and its related entities, which provide Voice Assist with the ability to host a speech technology platform currently serving more than 8,000 subscribers.

The company completes approximately 60,000 calls per day. The technology empowers mobile staff members and especially drivers to use speech commands to access data and send email or text messages by voice instead of typing.

Under terms of the agreement, SpeechPhone founder Michael Metcalf becomes a director and the new CEO of Voice Assist.

“We are excited to take the important step of becoming a public company as we provide new ways to access information through speech technology," Metcalf said. "As a public company, we are now well-positioned to access the capital markets and create public awareness of our many technologies and service offerings, including the life-saving hands-free safe driving solution now available at www.voiceassist.com.
