mobility" -- Atom(TM), the next generation 'AVST Total Office
Manager.' Say hello to Atom at Booth #519 at the Enterprise Connect

speech interface to the workplace -- ramping up productivity and
keeping you connected -- wherever you go.
"We're excited to preview Atom to our customers -- the capabilities
it brings make it a true game-changer for the mobile worker," said
Tom Minifie, AVST's Chief Technology Officer. "Atom redefines user
productivity, keeps callers informed of your status, and enables
people to work smarter. Through personal assistant applications like
Apple's Siri or Google Search for Android, consumers are already
familiar with this type of automated assistance. We've taken our 15+
years of experience in delivering speech-enabled personal assistant
applications and added location, context and presence, which has led
to Atom, the latest personal productivity offering from AVST."
On the move? Atom's location-based services know when you've arrived
at the office, reached home or are anywhere in-between -- and will
deliver your calls to the optimal device. Atom is built with the most
sought after mobile features including: unified messaging, hands-free
speech access, single number reach, mobile number protection,
location-based services and a native mobile client for iPhone(R) and
Android(TM). Atom lets you manage your business calls, messages,
contacts and presence status.

leading speech recognition engine from Nuance(R), which uses your
voice to manage your business activities, such as "Call John Smith,"
"Get new messages" and "Get my calendar for today." Plus, Atom is
multi-lingual and speaks and understands your language.
Need to let others know when you are away from your desk? Atom is in
sync with your calendar, and notifies callers you are "in a meeting
and will be back at 10 a.m." Atom also keeps an eye on your instant
messaging presence and will not send calls to your device when set to
'Do not disturb.'
Atom connects to the cloud, delivering unified messaging to multiple
email systems (premise-based and public cloud) including Microsoft(R)
Exchange and Office 365(TM), Lotus(R) Notes(R), Google(TM) Gmail(TM),
