“Alexa, Find My Phone.”
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Versay Solutions and Vail Systems add “find my phone”, voice dialing, SMS messaging, and on demand conferencing capabilities to Amazon Echo
Communicator application extends reach of popular intelligent assistant
New York, NY August 17, 2015 — Today at SpeechTEK 2015 in Booth 515, Versay Solutions,will be offering live demonstrations of Communicator, an application providing cloud- based telephony and messaging services, including voice calls, voice texting and conference calling, initiated on Amazon Echo.
“Our extensive experience designing and building natural language voice application solutions for the contact center naturally lends itself to developing voice and text-enabled Internet of Things interactions for both the home and enterprise,” said Joe Carey, President of Versay Solutions. “We are pleased to offer SpeechTEK attendees the opportunity to see how routine tasks can be made even easier by extending Echo’s capabilities.”
With Communicator, Versay offers a new solution to the all too common problem of misplacing a phone. Rather than logging onto a computer to ping the lost device or asking a friend to call your phone, one can quickly use Echo to locate the device with a simple command: “Alexa, tell Communicator to find my phone.” Communicator can also place a call to a contact (“tell Communicator to call Jeff”), send a text message using Alexa’s open speech recognition functionality or start a multi-party conference.
The Versay-designed Communicator app, or “skill” in Alexa terms, is powered by Vail’s API- based telephony and messaging cloud services. This on-demand, network-based platform, which has been in continuous, uninterrupted service for over 10 years, supports billions of interactions a year for both enterprises and carriers, and is geographically distributed, load-balanced and actively monitored 24x7 to ensure the highest levels of reliability and uptime.
