AVST Selected as 2004 Entrepreneurial Award winner from Frost & Sullivan

Foothill Ranch, Calif. - AVST has been presented with the Frost and Sullivan 2004 Entrepreneurial Award

for demonstrating entrepreneurial ability through its accomplishments and

leadership in the speech solutions market.  In selecting AVST for the award,

Frost and Sullivan named AVST's flagship product, CallXpressR, one of the top

speech-enabled unified messaging (UM) products in the North American market.


According to Frost and Sullivan, the relatively untapped unified messaging

market is expected to grow rapidly over the next five to six years.  "Given

its existing customer and partner relationships and substantial brand name

recognition, AVST is well positioned to take advantage of the growing demand

for unified messaging solutions," said Elka Popova, a Frost and Sullivan



Frost and Sullivan also reports that one of the biggest drivers in the growing

UM market is the development of speech-enabled unified messaging solutions

that allow mobile users to access their voice, email and fax messages over

the telephone anywhere, any time.  AVST's CallXpress has a speech module

that lets customers use voice-activated commands to manage phone calls,

e-mail and fax messages.


Studies have shown that in-office staff can manage their messages twice more

efficiently by using CallXpress instead of traditional messaging solutions.

Remote and traveling employees can improve their efficiency by more than

three times when using unified messaging via a graphical user interface.

Telephone access to messages provides remote and traveling employees with an

even greater degree of convenience and further increases their efficiency

and productivity.
