Dec 22, 2004 | Conteúdos Em Ingles

Edify Corporation has announced that the Edify Voice Interaction Platform (EVIP) 9.0, has achieved VoiceXML 2.0 Certification through the VoiceXML Forum’s Platform Certification Program. VoiceXML 2.0 Certification verifies that an application can be deployed in a way that is compatible with the VoiceXML standard, eliminating the need for proprietary markups.

Edify customers also have the benefit of operating both VoiceXML compliant solutions and native Edify voice solutions on the same platform.

‘The VoiceXML Forum’s Platform Certification Program is a key component of our strategy to accelerate worldwide market adoption for speech-enabled applications,‘ said Ken Rehor, Vice Chair of the VoiceXML Forum and Chair of the Forum’s Conformance Committee. ‘VoiceXML platform certification will promote interoperability of VoiceXML platforms, tools, service providers, and applications. As VoiceXML adoption continues to grow in enterprises and carriers, certification assists customers in choosing from a wide variety of vendors and deployment options to solve their particular business needs .’

Edify explains that EVIP 9.0 is a comprehensive voice system that enables enterprises to build, execute and manage voice applications across the enterprise. EVIP 9.0 integrates powerful automation software with a new distributed architecture that supports emerging standards and technologies such as VoiceXML 2.0. The Edify Voice Browser, a primary component of EVIP 9.0, allows the Edify platform to execute VoiceXML 2.0 compliant code as stand-alone VoiceXML applications or in conjunction with any Edify application builder code.

‘Enterprises need technology that provides the opportunity to leverage existing platforms, tools and applications to increase process efficiency and decrease operational costs,‘ said Mitch Mandich, president and CEO at Edify Corporation. ‘As the first company to successfully complete the VoiceXML Forum’s formal certification process since its formal release in September 2004, Edify is a leader in setting higher interoperability standards for the speech applications industry. In turn, our customers benefit from the interoperability that our open standards-based architecture provides.
