Business description: Apptera's suite of highly configurable, packaged speech applications enrich the caller experience and greatly reduce time-to-market of voice self-service solutions. Apptera significantly lowers the traditional deployment cost and maintenance complexities associated with custom speech offerings, enabling enterprises to deploy speech at one third the time and cost. The company's VoiceXML-based applications are platform-independent and ship with an intuitive, browser-based studio for easily adapting applications to specific business requirements. All applications are pre-tuned, ready to deploy out of the box, and can be easily modified and managed in-house.
