Updated · Sep 27, 2001
Audiopoint, a voice applications company developing products for businesses that reach consumer markets, has formed a strategic partnership with NetBase Corp. to develop the industry’s first speech enabled, Web-based time and attendance tracking system, easyTIMESHEET.
Audiopoint’s speech enablement of NetBase’s easyTIMESHEET will allow users, managers, and administrators to perform all time and attendance operations to facilitate the management of staff and personnel via the telephone by using their voice to answer a brief series of questions. Features include an extensive list of preferences and enhancements that allow users to meet their specific business needs, providing multiple approval options and automatic prompting for users who are delinquent entering their time.
“Audiopoint’s technology is a logical advancement for increasing the scope and delivery of NetBase’s easyTIMESHEET,” said Brian L. Lichorowic, President and chief executive officer of Audiopoint. “The merging of speech technology with cutting-edge resource management techniques is the next evolutionary step for time and attendance tracking, providing NetBase with a clear advantage over their nearest competition and supporting the viability of automatic speech recognition in everyday business.”
The Fairfax, Va.-based Audiopoint has been developing and hosting large-scale commercial voice applications since 1999. Products by Audiopoint include the Odyssey travel and hospitality suite and VoiceForm suite of speech enabled data capture technologies, which includes v-Reg voice enabled product registration. A privately held company, Audiopoint investors include NextGen Capital and other private investors.
