Voice Assist Forms Strategic Alliance with HarQen
Voice Assist and HarQen today announced a strategic alliance designed to deliver a carrier-grade conference calling solution, which promises to redefine standard bridge call capabilities. The combined solution, which takes advantage of Voice Assist's Voice Mode application, allows participants to initiate calls with spoken commands, take notes with their voices, and then have calls organized so that they can be searched, reviewed, analyzed, and shared afterward.
The combined solution eliminates the logging of call details into popular customer relationship management applications and organizes all of the team's notes, PowerPoint presentations, images, and original voice contributions automatically.
"Voice Assist is pleased to be chosen by HarQen to provide hands-free, voice-enabled commands to better enable the conference call experience safely while driving," said Michael Metcalf, chairman and CEO of Voice Assist. "This agreement demonstrates our commitment to expanding the capabilities of Voice Assist's unique voice services platform."
According to a survey published by the Annenberg School of Communications at UCLA and the University of Minnesota's Training & Development Research Center, executives spend upwards of 50% of their time in meetings. "Up until now, we have not had an easy way to initiate a conference call nor a meaningful way to organize, access, or share these meetings later," said E. Kelly Fitzsimmons, CEO of HarQen. "Voice Assist is made up of true industry pioneers and experts. We believe that the combination of our team's talents and award-winning products will forever change the way people think of voice communications."
