There are millions of .NET developers out there, with more to come now that Microsoft has made .NET an open-source platform. Yet .NET developers with hands-on experience building voice-enabled applications can still be relatively hard to find. This presents a challenge to enterprises, especially as they look to wrap voice services into more of their business applications, particularly in their contact centers and interactive voice response (IVR) systems. In order to leverage their in-house developer skills and move forward with new communications-based applications, enterprises need to bridge these two worlds.
GlorSoft and Dialogic have been building such a bridge together since 2008. Based in Ireland, GlorSoft targets its Velocity v3.1 software development kit (SDK) to .NET developers looking for a powerful yet intuitive platform for creating voice-enhanced applications. Velocity brings voice-enhanced functionality including IVR features, caller ID, customized call routing, text-to-speech and voice mail into a .NET programming environment to help developers build voice-enabled applications more quickly and easily. With Velocity, .NET developers can bypass the usual complexities of voice applications such as proprietary programming languages and multi-threading by using a native, familiar and easy-to-use .NET-based programming interface.
