Mobile technology company Silent Communication has licensed its Visual Voice Mail software to Sony Ericsson. This means that Sony Ericsson now has the ability to offer 'visual voicemail' on every phone in its range, regardless of operating system and network operator.
Visual voicemail lets mobile phone users manage their voicemail directly from their device in a way that's similar to handing email messages – and without the need for voice prompts.
Max Bluvband, CEO of Silent Communication, said "The mobile world is fighting a battle against device and network fragmentation. This battle impacts the entire ecosystem, from mobile operators who can take months to develop applications for the wide list of devices, through to network and VAS providers who need to make tough choices about how many or which devices to support, and ultimately the consumer, who is left confused and disenchanted with the traditional operators who leave them waiting months for the value added services they desire. A Device And Network Agnostic approach is the major weapon in this battle and we are delighted that Sony Ericsson, one of the largest mobile manufacturers in the world, has recognized Silent Communication’s ability to cut their cost and time to market with valuable services that drive loyalty, satisfaction and revenue."
