AVST to Deliver Keynote Address at SCITDA Conference.

Company's CEO to Focus on Communications Trends in Government and Higher Education Markets

FOOTHILL RANCH, Calif. -- Applied Voice & Speech Technologies, Inc. (AVST), a leading provider of unified communications solutions, today announced its participation at the SCITDA Fall Conference at the Ocean Dunes Resort in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. The company's President and CEO, Hardy Myers, will deliver a presentation titled, "A Look at Communications - Today and Tomorrow," on Wednesday, September 12, 2007 from 8:45 to 10:45 a.m. EDT in the Atlantic Meeting Room.

The South Carolina Information Technology Directors Association (SCITDA) provides a medium for the exchange of information pertinent to the management of state information technology facilities. The organization includes most of South Carolina's state agencies, colleges and universities. Over the past twenty years, SCITDA's bi-annual conferences have provided the state with premier venues for uniting key information technology professionals and vendors.

"As more organizations such as government agencies and higher education facilities are moving from traditional communications platforms to VoIP and unified communications, it's imperative for their IT professionals to be prepared for the road ahead," said Myers. "As one of the world's leading providers of UC technology with more than 38,000 customers worldwide, we are excited to offer our insight and expertise to the SCITDA audience, helping them to understand how unified communications can positively affect revenues, costs and user satisfaction."

The keynote session will be a business discussion on today's emerging communication trends, including a brief history on how communications platforms have evolved and where the industry is headed in the next three to five years. Myers will explore the pitfalls that decision makers should be aware of before switching out their communications platform and how confidentiality and compliance issues play a role in the deployment of a next generation messaging platform. Attendees will take away tips and best practices for implementing unified communications with VoIP in an organization.

AVST's flagship unified communications (UC) solution, CallXpress([R]), delivers world-class call processing, voice messaging, unified messaging and advanced speech applications. CallXpress is the only UC solution that gives IT managers a choice of four unified messaging (UM) architectures based on the needs of their business. IT managers can choose between server-based, client-based, secure and simplified architectures or mix and match architectures based on individual departmental requirements. This unprecedented flexibility makes it the ideal UC solution for organizations of all sizes.

CallXpress also offers a complete set of migration options from early generation products that are approaching end-of-life. This enables customers to easily integrate CallXpress with most PBX and IP communications technologies from other vendors, reducing the need to invest in costly infrastructure replacement and user training programs. As a result, CallXpress is an optimal choice for decision makers because it increases user productivity and effectiveness at a minimal investment.
