“AVST is committed to educating higher education administrators about the options available for upgrading to advanced communications systems.

CallXpress was developed to offer quick and painless conversions to next-generation technology through speedy implementation, simple administration and maintenance and telephone user interface emulations that are already familiar to users resulting in minimal training, according to the company.
