Lyrix Inc., a leading provider of cloud based enterprise communications solutions to SMBs and Fortune 50 Companies worldwide announced today that Telovations has licensed Lyrix’s Mobiso Speech Enabled Auto Attendant solution to power its new Speech Assist service, bringing a new service that allows users to access a company’s directory through voice prompts from their office or cellular phone. Powered by Mobiso, Telovations' Speech Assist business customers will be able to utilize a best-in-class speech enabled auto attendant (SEAA) solution that utilizes Lyrix’s patent-winning PeopleFind technology to fundamentally change the way their business communicates.
With Speech Assist, users can: dial by voice from office or cell to co-workers instantly -- by simply pressing a preprogrammed button on their desk or mobile phone and speaking the name of the person they are trying to reach. Since the directory is hosted in the 'cloud', users no longer have to continuously sync their mobile phones and other directories when the directory is updated. Access Voicemail -- by simply saying, 'Voicemail,' and the system prompts for user credentials. Connect with the press of a button -- by adding the Speech Assist company directory access number as a one-click soft-key, mobile phone favorite or desk phone direct extension. Create shortcuts to connect -- like 'Operator,' 'IT Helpdesk' or 'Technical Support' to reach company departments without knowing a specific party's name. Ensure safety while driving -- by eliminating the need to fumble through their mobile phone's directory. With Speech Assist saved as a shortcut, users can access their entire directory with the push of one button.
“Our customers are always looking for ways to improve their customers’ experience. Lyrix enabled Telovations to add speech recognition capability to our powerful cloud-based auto attendant using our Broadsoft platform and make it even easier for callers to reach the right contact,” said Mark Swanson, Telovations’
CEO. “Callers using mobile phones or Bluetooth devices now have a simpler way to interact with Auto Attendants which creates a better caller experience.”
Stewart Hampton, Marketing Director at Lyrix, said: "Telovations' Speech Assist is one of the most useful voice services to be offered to the hosted VoIP market to date, enabling Telovations' customers to gain a competitive advantage in the ways they service their customers. This service offering should permit companies to create a "numberless enterprise,"
allowing employees to be increasingly mobile and still reachable all while maintaining personal phone number privacy. Even with employee churn, that would negatively impact recognition performance with some SEAA solutions, PeopleFind Day2 Linguistics - available only from Lyrix - ensures continuous speech recognition improvement over time.”
