AudioCodes Partners with AVST

AudioCodes, a provider of voice networking solutions to help companies transition to all-IP voice networks, is collaborating with AVST, a unified communications (UC) company.

AudioCodes' CloudBond 365 and SmartTAP recording solution have been tested alongside AVST's CX-E suite for compatibility with Microsoft's Skype for Business unified communications offering.

"Collaborating with AudioCodes is a natural fit for AVST," said Denny Michael, senior vice president of sales and marketing at AVST, in a statement. "Our CX-E solution, together with CloudBond 365 and SmartTAP, provides a truly enterprise-class solution that delivers best-of-breed applications for Skype for Business customers."

When combined, the two companies' respective offerings provide a fully tested solution for Skype for Business that includes call control, UC productivity and call recording. AVST's robust CX-E suite includes such features as standalone voice messaging, automated attendant, IVR, mobile client, and informal call center solutions. CX-E is enhanced by integrating AudioCodes' CloudBond 365, which provides flexible Skype for Business deployment models, including on-premises and hybrid cloud. AudioCodes' SmartTAP recording solution is also integrated into the platform to provide compliant, qualified Skype for Business voice and IM recording, as well as an embedded Skype for Business toolbar and record/save on-demand function, which extends recording throughout the enterprise.

"Partnerships and technical alliances, such as our collaboration with AVST, continue to drive our goal of providing a powerful and simple solution to allow organizations to utilize the full potential of their unified communications," said Nimrode Borovsky, vice president of marketing at AudioCodes, in a statement. "We are very pleased to bring the value of this joint solution to our channel partners and customers.";
