"AVST provides a UCConnect® API framework to assist developers to rapidly create unique custom applications to accelerate business processes," said Frost & Sullivan Industry Analyst
. "By leveraging capabilities within the CX-E/S unified communications platform, AVST enables custom application, such as automatic outbound notifications, information access and delivery around the clock, click-to-call from directories and Web portals." AVST not only provides programmatic access to its UC applications, but the UCConnect program builds a developer network to offer guidance and resources to ensure integration and applications success. As an independent solution vendor, AVST also makes available its CX-Series platforms to other leading UC providers. These OEM agreements present AVST with an alternate path to market, as well as garner additional customer and market insight outside of its own customer base.
AVST adopts a hybrid model that comprises a mix of on-premises equipment alongside private or public cloud services. This level of diversity provides compelling value to customers, as more businesses look to right-size their UC infrastructure to align it with their particular geographical and organizational makeup.
