Aculab and Pronexus Announce Partnership

SINGAPORE, MILTON KEYNES, UK and OTTAWA, Canada - Pronexus, a supplier in computer telephony (CT) software solutions and Aculab, a provider of enabling technology for the communications market, announced a strategic alliance and joint marketing agreement.

This partnership culminates a joint research and development project between both companies. Developers will now be able to use Aculab's Prosody digital signal processing (DSP) resource platform and the Pronexus VBVoiceä application generator together. VBVoice is a Windows-based Rapid Application Development (RAD) environment for building highly scalable and robust CT applications in Visual Basicä. As one of the most comprehensive application generators on the market, the award-winning VBVoice allows corporate developers and integrators to rapidly deploy sophisticated TTS, voice and speech solutions for a variety of markets.

"The Aculab and Pronexus partnership will bring mutual benefits to both companies," says Chris Gravett, sales and marketing director at Aculab. "I' m excited that we can now satisfy the needs of developers worldwide who wish to take advantage of Aculab's technology and to use a proven application generator."

Aculab's wide range of protocols and approvals allow the development of a single application for global deployment, opening up new channels and markets for Pronexus customers.

Prosody also presents choice in terms of the range of speech processing and data algorithms available, including support for Aculab's TTS and automatic speech recognition and speech partners' products.

For developers looking to deploy Aculab technology, this partnership will also afford them with a faster application development time for trial systems, with the end result being reduced time to market. Chris Biber, director of marketing of Pronexus commented: "I am delighted about this partnership. Pronexus and Aculab are both focused on providing developers with the best resources for the creation of sophisticated telephony and speech applications. This alliance creates a win-win situation for Aculab, Pronexus and our joint customers around the world that are now able to combine the offerings of two industry leaders in their development efforts."
