AVST and collab9 Release FedRAMP Authorized Joint UCaaS Offering

Applied Voice & Speech Technologies, Inc. (AVST) announced that its industry-leading Unified Communications (UC) platform, CX‑E, is now hosted within collab9’s FedRAMPSM authorized cloud UC infrastructure. This follows the earlier announcement that AVST and collab9 had entered a partnership to deliver a joint solution to federal, state and local government entities.

In 2016, collab9 was the first UC cloud service provider to be granted a FedRAMP Moderate Authority to Operate. Through this newly forged partnership with AVST, collab9 expands its FedRAMP authorized, best-of-breed UC portfolio, featuring integrated solutions from multiple, industry-leading UC technology vendors. With this joint UC as a Service (UCaaS) solution, AVST and collab9 continue their shared mission to accelerate public sector movement to the cloud.

Steve Boberski, Vice President of Business Development for collab9, said of the partnership, “AVST’s CX‑E technology is an excellent complement to our secure hosted UC product suite. AVST shares our objective of enabling cloud transformation for government agencies, and this exciting partnership delivers an integral component of any agency’s plan to move to a hosted UC environment.”

Tom Minifie, AVST CTO, said, “AVST is excited to be an integral part of the collab9 FedRAMP Authorized Service Offering. Our CX‑E communications platform is designed to improve personal, group and organizational productivity and is now available as a FedRAMP authorized solution.”
