Radish Systems is awarded a patent for its integrated voice/data technology

Tuesday, April 18, 2017

BOULDER, CO (April 18, 2017) – Radish Systems, a leader in voice and data mobility solutions for visual customer service, announces that it has been awarded a second key patent from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for its integrated voice/data technology known in the market as ChoiceView®. This patent, which dates from 2009, significantly extends the reach of Radish's intellectual property from an environment of mobile apps and Windows software to an environment of web apps and websites. ChoiceView marries telephone and Internet technology for rich 'voice with visuals' calls. U.S. patent # 9,521,259 covers most any conceivable way for users to engage in voice-and-visual calls with businesses, even though they may not use a smartphone, have a pre-installed app, or expect anything other than a voice-only call. It also covers new system configurations for businesses resulting in even faster deployment and easier integration of next generation, multi-modal business communications through many channels which solve real problems -- irritated customers tired of voice-only Interactive Voice Response (IVR) systems, repeating information, long hold and processing times, and lack of self-service. ChoiceView is available now to license direct for business use and for other communications firms to easily embed 'voice with visuals' capabilities in their systems.
