Read Your Voicemail with Iperia's Visual Voice Messaging App
Yap Provides Fully Automated Voicemail-to-Text Transcription for Iperia
San Francisco , CA — (Mobile Voice Conference) -- April 22, 2010 — Iperia, a leading global provider of next-generation voice and messaging applications, has selected Yap to deliver fully automated voicemail transcription for its Visual Voice Messaging application (VVM). With Iperia's VVM, wireline and wireless service providers can offer a branded interface on any smartphone, agnostic of network, that allows subscribers to read — and listen to — their voice messages.
The visual voicemail experience on the iPhone and other smartphones makes access to voicemail faster and more convenient than cumbersome, touch-tone menu systems. However, these visual voicemail experiences still require subscribers to listen to their voicemail. This can be challenging in noisy environments or inappropriate in certain situations, like during a meeting.
Iperia's VVM, powered by Yap's automated voicemail transcription service, solves this problem by allowing subscribers to quickly and discretely read or listen to their voicemail directly from within a single screen in the VVM application.
"The visual voicemail offerings that are widely deployed today still require users to listen to their messages — there's nothing visual about that," says Igor Jablokov, CEO at Yap. "Iperia provides the best of both worlds making their visual voice messaging truly visual by allowing users to read as well as listen to their voicemail."
Yap's high accuracy and fully automated voicemail-to-text service helps ensure that Iperia's VVM experience meets operators' very high bar for accuracy, fast turn-around time and privacy.
"The accuracy levels provided by Yap are virtually on par with what agents can provide," says Sam Waicberg, CEO at Iperia. "Furthermore, Yap's fully automated approach requires no human involvement, providing much faster response times and helping guarantee that subscribers' personal information remains private."
In addition to voicemail, Iperia's conferencing, video-mail, voice notification and voice sms applications will be integrated with Yap's automated voice transcription services.
Iperia offers its VVM with Yap's voicemail-to-text on iPhone, Android, Blackberry, WinMobile, and Symbian smartphone devices.
