SpinVox Brings 'Real Visual Voicemail' to Millions of North American Subscribers



    Leading companies sign on with SpinVox to deploy award winning
Voice-to-Screen services

    ORLANDO, FLA., March 27 /CNW/ - SpinVox, the world expert in
Voice-to-Screen(TM) messaging for consumer, enterprise and carrier markets,
today announced it is working with leading network operators and industry
partners and vendors to bring its Voice-to-Screen services to millions in
North America. SpinVox's award-winning voicemail-to-text service takes Apple
iPhone's much touted feature, Visual Voicemail, to a new level. North American
subscribers can now not only listen to voice messages in the order they
desire, they can also receive voice messages as a text message or email
anytime, anywhere.

    When it launched in North America in January 2007, SpinVox experienced
immediate demand from the industry and potential subscribers. SpinVox has
already signed deals with Cincinnati Bell and SaskTel and established a
working partnership with Skype to create innovative next generation voice
messaging services. These build on existing global deals with major companies
such as Vodafone. Additional agreements with carriers to offer multi-lingual
Voicemail-to-Text service and Voice-to-Screen products are scheduled to be
announced this year. Through word-of-mouth communications, the SpinVox North
American Gamma program has already attracted more than 6,000 users for SpinVox
pre-carrier services.

    Christina Domecq, CEO of SpinVox, commented, "SpinVox Voice-to-Screen
services are generating tremendous industry interest and support. Our
strategic partners and relationships represent our fast-growing global
expansion and are leading North American presence as we deliver 'Real Visual
Voicemail' through our upcoming carrier deployments."

    SpinVox has signed agreements with IP Unity Glenayre, and uReach
Technologies. Additionally, SpinVox is working with Unisys, StreamWIDE,
Broadsoft, UTStarcom, and mPathix for carrier deployments.

    "IP Unity Glenayre is excited to team with SpinVox in bringing
Voice-to-Screen services to the market," said Stan Little, Senior Vice
President of Marketing and Business Development for IP Unity Glenayre. "The
approach aligns with our strategy of using standards-based interfaces to
enable mobile messaging applications that users value and carriers can quickly
deploy."

    An established UK company, SpinVox has experienced massive growth built
on a foundation of partnerships, deals, awards and revenue, by following a
guiding philosophy of directness and simplicity. From a team of 30 with 60,000
users, the Company has grown to over 180 staff in nine locations, across four
continents, supporting a multi-lingual service with a forecast for 2007 of
over six million people experiencing their spoken word converted to screen. In
2006 this performance was marked by major awards such as GSMA, the Red Herring
100 Europe 'Top Technology Innovators' and Mobile Messaging Awards 2006
'Biggest Impact on Mobile Messaging'. SpinVox will elegantly slot into any-and
every-messaging solution from traditional voice right through to Web 2.0.

    SpinVox has invested over four years researching, developing and
deploying a world-class, ISO-certified, carrier-grade service platform. The
platform is capable of integrating directly with any carrier's voice messaging
platform, enabling carriers to offer highly innovative Voice-to-Screen
messaging products to all of their subscribers.

    SpinVox is available across three continents and in four major languages:
International English, Spanish, French and German with further languages in
development. SpinVox is headquartered in the UK with offices in five
countries, including North American headquarters in Atlanta and is privately
backed by private equity and international finance firms with funds in excess
of $60 million USD.
