United States, Ca... "VoiceLink Corporation (The Company) focuses on developing technologies to expand electronic commerce to the growing wireless Internet world in addition to its PC and Telephony solutions. Analysts at International Data Corporation predict that the number of mobile commerce subscribers will grow from less than 1,000 in 1999 to 29 million by 2004. The Company’s ASP and the power of its patent-pending universal API and patent-pending voice-digital signature security system is the most comprehensive B2B solution for universal wireless, PC- and Telephony-based e-commerce available. It’s designed for anyone utilizing or intending to utilize the web to strategically extend their e-commerce model to the growing base of consumers using any wireless device, cellular or hand held in addition to PC or standard telephone users. The Company’s ASP is a quick, easy and complete solution for any web customer to incorporate a wireless e-commerce strategy and deliver value-added features such as instant messaging and verification or bouncing options for consumers for easy site-to-site movement anywhere, anytime. The Company currently sells and supports its core resource management software engine accessible as an ASP via an application-program interface (API) deployed within customer environments. The Company’s interface platform automates a variety of business practices such as e-commerce, resource demand and resource management in multiple industries. The Company’s ASP products and services are being expanded and extended to the wireless platform for web merchants and services as value-added e-commerce and to leading edge wireless carriers and service providers to offer as a value-added feature of their smart phones or other wireless Internet devices. This solution can be customized to meet the strategic needs of both the merchant, and the carrier or service provider. The Company’s platform will be dedicated to extending the reach of the millions of web merchant or service businesses to deliver their merchandise or resources. This will be accomplished through an easy-to-use and easy-to-setup user interface with the widest range of facility resource or merchant product definition and customization options as well as built-in convenience for consumers such as instant email confirmation delivered to any personal wireless or PC based scheduler. This combination produces compelling improvements in the ability of web merchandise or service businesses to expand market reach for their merchandise or to promote and fulfill demand for their resources. The Company makes reaching the wireless marketplace simple, fast and low-cost by hosting our web customers’ resources, databases and content, and delivering the ability to transact through wireless devices with the same effectiveness and efficiency as enjoyed by the Company’s customers through its PC and Telephony driven applications. The Company’s unique software application uses a core engine consisting of over 500,000 lines of code developed over the last two years. This code, combined under middle tier XML and J2EE web platforms, form the foundation for the Company’s powerful API. These technologies provide a seamless solution to merchants by enabling wireless on-line purchasing and to services by enabling “true” real-time resource management for appointments, reservations, facility utilization and interactivity for consumers. The platform includes hands free voice Internet features, instant email notification or verification, and automatic synchronization to, from, or with any common scheduler product such as Microsoft Outlook, Yahoo Personal Scheduler, and Lotus Notes. The platform also allows the API to sync these differing schedules through any communication device. The Company’s marketing strategy is concentrated on leveraging strategic alliances and partnerships on a shared revenue basis to drive traffic to merchant and service businesses web sites. Accordingly, rather than marketing toward brand recognition, the company designed its Internet and wireless products as back-end solutions to function as add-ins to its customers’ new or existing web sites. The Company generates revenue from three primary sources. The first is via per transaction fees assessed to merchant or service businesses and passed along to the consumer. The second is via monthly maintenance fees assessed to the merchant or service businesses. The third is via professional service fees. The power of this connectivity enables consumer’s to purchase the products of web merchants through a hands free voice driven method and to reserve space of web services without the need for human intervention to generate return phone calls or e-mails. After the purchase or reservation has been verified, the system can return the consumer to the merchant or service site or the site of origin. At the same time, the notification or verification of a purchase or scheduled resource will appear in the consumer’s personal schedule and in the schedules of whomever the consumer includes in a reservation. The Company combined these features to insure the rapid building of a consumer user base. The Company’s merchant and service business customers confirm daily that these products and services increase their revenue, decrease their operating expenses, and improve their efficiency. At the simplest level, they enable these businesses to improve their consumer’s experience by making it easier to access the products or services they offer. However, VoiceLink' value proposition extends much further; information provided from the consumers use of the Company’s products and services can be used by web merchants in transaction management and to rationalize catalog, merchandise, advertising and distribution. Web services can improve the daily operation of their businesses by decreasing operating costs in areas such as staffing and material and supplies. The information can also be used to generate and analyze key operating statistics such as facility utilization rates and promotional program response rates. Development of additional products and services such as these are another component of the Company’s future growth strategy. The Company seeks $2.0 million in thi...
