August 24th, 2009 – McLean, VA – Plug’n Pay Technologies, a leading secure internet authorization provider, today announced their latest payment product, the ePayments mobile payment terminal for Android and iPhone smartphones for processing credit card payments on a mobile device.
Angel.com, the leading provider of on-demand business voice solutions, today announced integration partnerships with VoiceVault, Novauris and Plug’n Pay, three pioneers in speech and voice recognition technology. By pairing with these leading-edge companies, Angel.com extends the reach of its IVR and call center technology solutions, helping customers maximize business productivity and efficiency, reduce telephony costs, and improve caller satisfaction.
“Angel.com’s top priority is to put the caller first by increasing customer satisfaction through innovative technology development and partnerships,” said Dave Rennyson, President and COO of Angel.com. “By partnering with VoiceVault, Novauris and Plug’n Pay, we have created solutions that offer a better way for callers to connect with our customers in a more efficient and convenient way.”
By partnering with VoiceVault, the specialist provider of voice-based biometric identity verification solutions and services, Angel.com can integrate both companies’ best-in-class technologies to provide customers with secure, efficient and quick identity verification services. These services offer a more practical and secure alternative to PINs, passwords and other security options, ultimately saving the caller time and improving their experience.
Angel.com’s Name and Address Capture Solution incorporates Novauris’ patented NovaSearch speech recognition technology. When applied to addresses, this technology lets callers enter any basic U.S. street address in a single, continuously spoken, utterance as they would naturally provide it to a human operator, rather than having to adopt the awkward and time-consuming process of entering each part of the address separately as required by existing spoken address-capture systems.
The Plug’n Pay partnership was put in place to utilize the company’s secure, reliable eCommerce solutions for phone-based payments. These solutions simplify the real-time order management aspect of payment processing, saving time for both agents and customers, which ultimately lowers business expenses and simplifies the pay-by-phone process.
“We are excited to have the opportunity to work with VoiceVault, Novauris and Plug’n Pay to expand our own capabilities as well as continue to help our customer’s offer a world-class user experience,” Rennyson said. “These companies are three unique and cutting-edge players in the voice technology space and we are pleased to count them among our partnership network.”
