  • Voice Assist, Inc. (VSST): A Platform-Agnostic SIRI And Full Feature Hands-Free Solution For Motorists Is Just The Beginning 0 comments
    Apr 19, 2013 1:44 PM | about stocks: VSST

    Voice Assist, the award-wining mobile speech solutions developer, is poised to grab immense market share with their Apple SIRI-like, cloud-based, and platform-agnostic virtual assistant engine that promises to also save countless lives out of the 1.2M who perish every year worldwide in car accidents, many of which are due to distractions like using the cell phone while behind the wheel.

    With over 600M passenger cars on the road today and upwards of 6B wireless phones, Voice Assist is a much needed solution that can call (including dial by name), two-way text, email (listen/reply), or even post to Facebook/Twitter, all via voice command. The company launched a mobile app for Android in September of last year and released a version for Apple iOS just three months after, giving Voice Assist broad reach across millions of smartphones, PCs, tablets, and even IPTV, something which gives VSST a significant leg up over competitors.

    With success in the initial market trials, teaming up with heavyweights Sprint and AT&T to help land over 15k subscribers to the promoted freemium version in just two months, VSST is already working on a third party developer SpeechApp store to bring in additional content. By sharing 30% of the revenue with carriers, the company is rapidly integrating itself and will quickly be migrating freemium users to either the 100 minutes for $4.95 per month, or $9.95 for unlimited personal use plan (free version allows 25 minutes or 10 messages per month)

    VSST is sitting on nine key patents pending for their one-touch continuous speech solution, and the solution is already fully integrated with the popular Jabra Freeway, an in-car, Bluetooth speakerphone, which features Virtual Surround Sound and voice-guided assistance. Again this is choice positioning for VSST as the Jabra Freeway was rated "product of the year" by TMCnet, the world's top B2B and integrated marketing media company, as well as taking home "best of show" at CTIA (The Wireless Association®), the event hosted by the esteemed international nonprofit membership organization which has represented the wireless communications industry since 1984.

    In addition to this incredible marvel of the hands-free speech area, VSST has compelling offerings like a flat-rate $19.95 per month IP-based home phone service, something which dovetails perfectly with the Voice Assist platform, making it like having SIRI on your home phone. This same package is available for small business as well, with an upgrade to the $25 per month package enabling the Mandi, virtual receptionist feature.

    Also in the hopper at VSST is the Voice Assist for Salseforce.com upgrade, allowing salespeople to create database entries with a simple phone call after they get done talking to the customer. This solution has already been fully certified and tested for stringent, business-class security.

    Finally we have SpeechScipt to look at, a rapid development environment for third party developers that leverages all of the benefits of JavaScript to bypass the complexity of learning/implementing stuff like VXML 2.0, or hassling with the hoops that need to be jumped through to develop apps for the Android or Apple platforms.

    With 32 different countries now banning cell phone use while driving, the demand for VSST's technology is set to keep pace with the white-hot mobile market and investors will be keen to see how quickly the apps and services continue to take off.
