Voxeo Achieves VoiceXML 2.0 Platform Certification
ORLANDO, Florida — April 25, 2005 – Voxeo Corporation, the leading provider of standards-based VoiceXML and CCXML IVR platforms, announced today that its Voxeo VoiceCenter v6.0 IVR platform has been awarded VoiceXML Forum Platform Certification.
The Voxeo VoiceCenter platform passed more than 600 independently tested assertions in the VoiceXML Forum’s VoiceXML 2.0 test suite, making it one of only five available VoiceXML certified platforms. Voxeo is the first company to offer the same VoiceXML certified platform for both hosted and customer-premise deployments, and the only company to have both a VoiceXML certified platform and a VoiceXML Application Developer certified support staff.
As a result of the Platform Certification, Voxeo customers can be assured that VoiceXML 2.0 applications will be easily portable to and from the Voxeo VoiceCenter platform. New customers can move their applications onto the VoiceCenter platform without the pain and cost of rewriting or retooling the code. And, once their applications are deployed, Voxeo customers need not worry about the legacy trap of vendor lock-in that comes with other proprietary platforms. The formal test report, detailing the required and optional features tested, is publicly available on the VoiceXML Forum’s website at http://www.voicexml.org/platform_certification/.
“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 promotes 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.”
The Voxeo VoiceCenter IVR platform incorporates Motorola’s industry-leading VoiceXML 2.0/2.1 browser technology. Voxeo has worked closely with Motorola to create an IVR platform that is built on open standards, providing customers more power and flexibility than proprietary platforms.
“Motorola is very pleased that the Voxeo VoiceCenter IVR platform and the Motorola VoxGateway VoiceXML voice browser have passed the VoiceXML Forum’s stringent certification process. We strongly support VoiceXML and the other related open standards from the W3C’s Voice Browser and Multimodal Interaction working groups,” said Jim O’Connor, Vice President, Motorola Technology Incubation and Commercialization. “We are proud to be a part of the VoiceCenter IVR platform now and in the future.”
