AVST Previews Atom
Applied Voice & Speech Technologies (AVST), a provider of unified communications software and services, has previewed Atom, the next generation AVST Total Office Manager.
Acting as a dedicated, 24/7 office manager, Atom brings new location-based services, federated presence and a multilingual speech interface to the workplace.
Atom is built with mobile features that include unified messaging, hands-free speech access, single number reach, mobile number protection, location-based services, and a native mobile client for iPhone and Android.
Atom connects to the cloud, delivering unified messaging to multiple email systems, including Microsoft Exchange and Office 365, Lotus Notes, Google Gmail, Novell GroupWise and any IMAP4 compliant email system. Atom also connects to contacts and calendars.
"Atom redefines user productivity, keeps callers informed of your status, and enables people to work smarter,” said Tom Minifie, AVST's chief technology officer, in a statement. “Through personal assistant applications like Apple's Siri or Google Search for Android, consumers are already familiar with this type of automated assistance. We've taken our 15-plus years of experience in delivering speech-enabled personal assistant applications and added location, context, and presence, which has led to Atom.”
