V-ENABLE Receives Frost & Sullivan Award for Technology Leadership
ORLANDO, Fla. - Global growth consulting company Frost & Sullivan has awarded V-ENABLE, a provider of voice-based mobile search solutions, the 2006 Technology Leadership Award for the North American Directory Assistance (DA) market.
Each year, Frost & Sullivan bestows the award upon the company that has demonstrated excellence in technology leadership within their industry. Analyst teams hold interviews, track all emerging technology, and conduct research and comparisons. Technologies are rated on a variety of factors, including feasibility of product launch, customer acceptance, and significance of technology and innovation.
"A host of free and paid services are vying for customers' 411 calls, and V-ENABLE's market-changing technology stands out as a low-cost, high-revenue-generating alternative for carriers currently seeking to reduce their cost or add value to their existing DA solutions," said Abhishek Murali, research analyst at Frost & Sullivan. "V-ENABLE's patented voice- and text-search solutions will allow carriers to compete using advertising-based revenue models that give them a competitive edge over other local search offerings. We recognize V-ENABLE's technology and solutions as the best in the DA market, and we believe the organization is poised to leverage its services across carrier networks for continued success."
V-ENABLE's Mobile411 is an enhanced directory assistance solution. An automated solution, it allows voice-access to business and residential listings, driving directions, maps, and more. Directory requests are retrieved and shown on a user's screen. This solution can also be paired with existing operator-supported DA calls, allowing 411 callers to access basic listing information from an operator while also receiving enhanced services (maps, directions and other features) after the call.
