An enterprise-grade unified speech assistant can lower costs and streamline processes, taking corporate productivity to new heights. It’s even become part of some enterprises' “work smarter” programs. The question is - why aren’t more organizations embracing it more quickly? Siri has certainly made an impact in the consumer world, bringing speech technology to the forefront; however, some have begun to sour on Siri’s performance as referenced in a recent NY Times article.
The situation is not the same with enterprise speech applications like Mobiso. This product grew up in the large enterprise space and continues to successfully support global Fortune 1000 customers, as well as small and mid-size users from the cloud. Our partnerships with Avaya, Mitel, Broadsoft, Metaswitch, Genband, and Cisco continue to grow as Mobiso becomes the unified speech assistant of choice.
With superb accuracy on day 1 as a result of Mobiso’s patented Logical Choice software and unique day 2 Continuous Linguistic Improvements, enterprises appreciate the performance Mobiso delivers year after year. Here are the key reasons why partners choose Mobiso an why Telovations Licenses Lyrix's Mobiso speech-enabled auto-attendant solution.
Historical barriers to adoption of speech technology in the enterprise consist of the sizable capital investment of deploying and maintaining a speech recognition system. Even though it may yield substantial ROI, in these recent tough economic times the upfront costs can often put the project “on-hold”. Traditional on-premise deployments take a bit more time and can sometimes present deployment challenges, and speech technology is tricky to support and maintain. For organizations with limited IT resources or expertise in the right areas, it’s sometimes simply a no go.
A cloud-based speech technology solution overcomes those barriers. It offers all the features and functions of a traditional premises-based speech enabled auto attendant but can be deployed much more rapidly and easily and eliminates the associated costs of a premise-based solution. With a pay-per-user/month model vs. a huge up-front investment, Capex moves to Opex and becomes a more predictable operating expense.
A cloud-based solution reduces overall costs, centralizes management, offers infinite flexibility, and enhances communications continuity and disaster recovery. By putting your speech-enabled auto-attendant applications in the cloud, they benefit from a robust unified speech assistant solution that makes it much easier to deal with the challenges of mobility and multiple devices - including the challenges of BYOD. Mobiso can also uniquely help facilitate and support a BYOD program with software and services with WEM services.

Featured Case Study
John Charles is the CIO of California State University, East Bay (CSUEB) and Rich Avila is Director, Server & Network Operations. In late 2007 they were both looking down the barrel of a gun. The total amount of power being used in the data center was 67KVA. The maximum power from the current plant was 75kVA. PG&E had informed them that no more power could be delivered. They would be out of power in less than six months. A new data center was planned, but would not be available for two years.
Featured How-To Note
A main impediment to storage virtualization is the lack of multiple storage vendor (heterogeneous) support within available virtualization technologies. This inhibits deployment across a data center. The only practical approach is either to implement a single vendor solution across the whole of the data center (practical only for small and some medium size data centers) or to implement virtualization in one or more of the largest storage pools within a data center.
