Voice Assist Partners with Jabra to Provide Complete Hands-Free Solutions

Voice Assist and Jabra have joined forces to deliver complete end-to-end, hands-free solutions for consumers and enterprise users alike.

With the combination of the Voice Assist cloud-based speech platform and services with Jabra Bluetooth headsets and in-car speakerphones, users can increase productivity using any mobile phone or IP-connected device (such as the iPhone, Blackberry, Android phones, the iPad and other tablets) at work, at home, on the road, and on the roam. Additionally, when paired with Jabra's speakerphones, like the upcoming Jabra FREEWAY, the combination provides a hands-free driving solution, enabling the user to make calls, send or respond to text messages and emails, or post to social networks such as Facebook and Twitter, all by voice. Users simply press one button on the Jabra headset or speakerphone, and then speak as they normally would, and say what they would like to do.

Through this partnership, both companies will be marketing each other's products either separately or as a bundled solution. Bundled products will be offered through multiple direct and indirect sales channels. The partnership between Voice Assist and Jabra already has proven success with joint offerings from both companies designed specifically for salespeople and mobile workers using Salesforce.com's Chatter.

"Jabra is a global leader in the headset industry, and we are pleased to be the speech services company of choice," said Michael Metcalf, CEO of Voice Assist. "Jabra devices start the conversation with one-button access, providing high-quality noise and echo cancellation technology, and Voice Assist empowers consumers and enterprise users to use simple voice commands to be more productive yet safer while driving. This is a great solution for everyone with a mobile lifestyle, enabling hands-free communications, including texting, emailing and social networking with coworkers, family, and friends."

"Hands-free communication is no longer a thing of the future; it's here and we are excited to be at the forefront of the industry," said Jonas Forsberg, North American general manager at GN Netcom. "By combining our wireless headsets and speakerphone options with Voice Assist's technology, we are offering customers a simple, convenient way to truly go hands-free."
