CEO at Voice Objects, Karl-Heinz Land explained “The UK market is especially important for us because it represents one of the largest European adopters of automated voice communications. Our management platform enables companies to manage multiple applications from different vendors and to deliver personalised, interactive and intelligent
voice-based dialogues to customers and employees.”
He added, “Whether it’s to reduce staffing costs or improve customer service, there is huge demand for easily accessible voice based contact whether it’s via the web, call centre or other mediums. The next challenge for companies is to successfully manage these types of services so that quality and customer satisfaction remains high. Using a server based applications management system like Voice Objects X5 can help achieve these goals. ”
Markus Mueller, Managing Director of VoiceObjects Ltd., which was founded at the end of 2004, will be responsible for setting up the VoiceObjects partner network in the UK and Ireland. Potential partners are expected to include specialist voice resellers, systems integrators and OEM partners.
Markus Mueller commented: “We are already negotiating with several leading system integrators and already have substantial end-user interest especially from the banking community. As indicated by our customers, many companies that offer automated telephone services have really been waiting for this kind of voice application management system. Finally, they can now administer their voice applications as easily as their other IT
applications and integrate them with their existing back-office systems.”
Compared to rival vendors that use packaged solutions without carrier-grade server technology, VoiceObjects X5 claims to cut costs by over 50%.
