Audium 3 Now Available in Australia and New Zealand
NEW YORK, NY and SYDNEY, NSW - Audium, the VoiceXML applications developer, announced the availability of Audium 3 for customers in Australia and New Zealand through a software distribution agreement with VRT Communications Ltd. Under the terms of the agreement VRT will distribute and support the Audium 3 VoiceXML applications platform throughout the region. Audium 3, a VoiceXML application development and runtime platform, delivers dynamic speech-enabled applications that can replace proprietary IVR systems. "We are excited to bring Audium software and solutions to this new market and help companies better serve their customers in Australia and New Zealand," said Audium COO J. Cory Wright. "This is the first step in our distribution strategy to make Audium 3 available worldwide. We believe this region holds great potential for next generation IVR systems due to the accelerated acceptance rate of speech recognition technology in the South Pacific and Asia and the rising cost of customer service." The Audium 3 platform is available as both installable software and a complete turnkey package with service, support, regional E1-compatibility, and a choice of speech recognition and text to speech technologies including Nuance, Speechworks, and Rhetorical.
