Pronexus today announced that their award winning powerful IVR development kit is now available for free along with their announcement of new version VBVoice 7.0 with more features! Whats more, developers will even get two channels free license to be deployed anywhere!
I think, this revolutionary move is specially aimed at emerging market like India which is very price sensitive. India also has large number of C#, VB.NET developers and with VBVoice being free, India may finally see many IVR developers. Finally, IVR development may go mainstream!
I still remember my conversation with few engineering students a year ago, who asked me how to start IVR development. I advised them that in order to develop IVR Software, one has to be a C++ programmer and also know CTI hardware. I was confronted with few pairs of blank, pleading eyes! They all said, they knew only C3 or VB.NET! They never did any real programming or coding using C++, though many of them read C++ in their Data Structure subject.
Now I can tell anyone, just download VBVoice, use its component/Controls just like a BUTTON in your C# or VB.NET form! And dont worry about those ringing, call pick up, dial tone, engage tone disconnect tone! VBVoice control will take care of them, you concentrate on making your IVR user interface ( IVR Call Flow) more and more user friendly! Also do not forget to use the power of .NET technology provided by Microsoft!
Here is the complete press release from Pronexus :
Pronexus, the developer of the leading Interactive Voice Response (IVR) toolkit Pronexus VBVoice™, announced today a revolutionary move to eliminate barriers to IVR development.
