Original Press Release:

Pronexus Aces the Competition with VBVoice 5.6.1

New IVR features significantly increase interoperability and allow for more responsive and interactive self-service IVR applications.

Ottawa, Canada - May 05, 2009 - Pronexus, the award winning creator of Interactive Voice Response (IVR) development tools releases VBVoice 5.6.1, their easy-to-install, feature rich and highly scalable development tool kit for speech and IVR solutions.

VBVoice 5.6.1 includes several major features and enhancements that significantly reduce the cost and complexity of voice (IVR) application development and increase stability for high density SIP, VoIP and HMP applications. A free evaluation version of VBVoice 5.6.1 is available immediately at

"Pronexus is once again leading the charge and implementing all the right enhancements into its award winning IVR tool kit VBVoice" says John Pope, President of CenturiSoft. "Integrating SIP, HMP, MRCP and VoIP protocols is crucial to stay ahead of the curve in today's competitive IVR environment. Pronexus has never let us down; they always seem to have a visionary view into the IVR Speech/Voice industry and that is why we have counted on Pronexus and VBVoice for the past 9 years as our partner and IVR development tool kit of choice."

An unwavering 15 year focus on developing standards based VB.NET voice enabled development tools has made VBVoice the most comprehensive IVR development tool available today. By leveraging the power of Microsoft VB.NET standards and tapping in to the millions of .NET developers worldwide, Pronexus is able to continually drive leading edge innovation and help make speech/voice enabled telephony applications easier to create and deploy. Prior to VBVoice developers were searching - and some, even to this day, are still searching - for an "Open Standard" development solution, and have settle for mashups of Java, VoiceXML, CCXML, scripts, and gateways to accomplish what VBVoice already offers in an integrated GUI based development solution.
Gary Hannah, President and CEO of Pronexus says, "We are extremely excited about this release (VBVoice 5.6.1). With its flawless integration with Microsoft Visual Studio 2008, Microsoft Vista support and integration with Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 R2 it allows SMBs to experience the same sophisticated IVR solutions that were once only affordable to Fortune 1000 companies. Our partners have always counted on Pronexus to provide them with the most advanced IVR development tools necessary to deliver Best-in-Class Speech/Voice enabled solutions for their high-end clients. And now, with Microsoft Speech Server 2007 support, the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) is significantly reduced, allowing our partners to offer their leading-edge solutions to everyone."
