IVR Technologies Expands its Role with Satellite Operators through Participation in the Global VSAT Forum (GVF)

With years of experience and a global base of satellite operators who use IVR Technologies’ Talking SIP enhanced services and real-time billing solution to drive revenue to their networks, we are pleased to showcase our technology and advanced services through the Global VSAT Forum.

IVR Technologies is a leading software development company providing voice over internet protocol (VoIP) enhanced services and real-time billing solutions to satellite operators around the world.  The Talking SIP™ solution is a field-hardened and globally deployed value-added services and real-time billing solution that includes a rich suite of prepaid and postpaid voice service applications.  These services are designed with features that help remote workers remain connected to family and friends that helps companies maintain productivity by keeping morale high. 

It is imperative in today’s competitive marketplace that satellite operators market and deliver in-demand and differentiated service offerings in order to gain market traction and remain competitive.  Talking SIP is designed and engineered to provide differentiated service offerings with a time-to-market advantage that enables satellite operators to quickly capitalize, execute and capture business globally.  Talking SIP can be used to facilitate, encourage and/or govern usage with controls in place to ensure accountability and limit fraud as well as abuse.   

Key Features

Market Ready.  IVR Technologies’ Talking SIP solution delivers voice services designed for satellite operators targeting maritime, aviation, defense, oil, gas and rail in both the enterprise and government segments.  With a robust and turnkey suite of applications that support direct calling and callback services, Talking SIP is market ready, robust, highly scalable and provides deployment flexibility by being able to be run on premise or in the cloud and on dedicated or virtual hardware. 

Reduces OPEX.  Talking SIP reduces OPEX costs associated with operating a satellite service by adding revenue generating services that can build new profit centers or can help offset satellite operational expenses through the direct sale of services to employees and crew members.  

Drives Revenue.  Through mature and widely deployed enhanced voice services, Talking SIP enables satellite operators to quickly launch targeted and branded services that are custom tailored to their clientele and that are seamlessly linked together to drive new revenue sources over the existing satellite network.   

Builds Morale and Productivity.  Whether at sea, in the air or working at a remote site, crew members want to stay connected with family and friends as well as be able to conduct personal business while out of traditional coverage.  Voice communications help keep morale and productivity high by providing a deeper and more meaningful medium of human contact that simply cannot be achieved through messaging or email. 

"Differentiation has never been more important to ensure the continued competitiveness of the satellite communications industry," said David Hartshorn, Secretary General of GVF. "We welcome IVR Technologies as a GVF Member and look forward to including their expertise and perspectives in the development of international industry initiatives" said David Hartshorn, Secretary General, Global VSAT Forum. 

“We are proud to be associated with the Global VSAT Forum and the unified voice that they have brought to the international satellite industry since 1997.  With our growing base of international satellite operators being a member of the Global VSAT Forum is a perfect fit that will enable us to play an even bigger role in the industry.” said Barry Sher, Vice-President Business Development, IVR Technologies, Inc.
