Call Genie Signs Deal for Voice-Enabled Searches
Call Genie signed a deal with R.H. Donnelley, a major phone directory and online search company, to supply its EVD product and services for Donnelley's 1-800 voice-enabled local search system.
Toronto-based Call Genie's EVD services will allow consumers in 1-800-CallDex markets to refine their searches with references to landmarks, neighborhoods and intersections.
Donnelley began a four-market trial of the new service in the United States, in Denver; Phoenix; Spokane, Wash.; and Tucson, Ariz., Sept. 5.
"Call Genie brings extensive knowledge of voice search technology and caller habits, as well as proven expertise in managing yellow pages and other directory listings, to R.H. Donnelley," said Michael Durance, CEO for Call Genie. "We are excited to work with R.H. Donnelley and look forward to supporting their initiatives related to the 1-800-CallDex local business category service."
