Dublin and Berlin, November 21, 2002. -- Weblicon, a leading provider of Personal Information Management and Messaging software, and Voxpilot, the pan-European VoiceXML service provider, have teamed up to make Weblicon's multilingual innovative communications solutions available all over Europe. This partnership will allow users voice-activated access to Weblicon's Personal Information Manager in different languages, from different European countries.

A demo version of Weblicon's PIM has already been made available on Voxpilot's VoiceXML Gateway in German and English languages. Users are able to dial +49-30-726 167 021 to have their eMails read to them over the phone after registering for a free account on Weblicon's Web site.

"We are very pleased to join with Weblicon in bringing their attractive Personal Information Mangement system to users all over Europe," declared Dr. Jonathan Alcantara, CEO of Voxpilot. "We believe that Weblicon's technology will prove to be extremely beneficial for telcos, enterprises and portal providers in the European marketplace".

Currently, the market for voice commerce and voice applications is still being developed, however, the forecasts are all positive: the American Kelsey Market Research Group forecasts a turnover volume of voice-controlled Internet services at Euro 7.4 billion in the USA for the year 2005. Market researchers of the British Ovum assure that the voice portal in the UK will earn more than Euro 29.5 million per year already in 2005.

Weblicon-founder Carsten Brinkschulte is convinced of the breakthrough of voice applications: "The standardization of the interfaces between the individual components and voice applications will add a new dimension to the Internet applications. Already today, some 75 percent of all mobile phone users are in favour of voice-controlled services. The desire for respective voice applications is even higher among users who are on the go much in their job. 'Always on' is the motto of the mobile office". This change in paradigm has consequences, people are not bound to their offices any longer but rather the office to the people. Routine tasks, time management and address administration are delegated to intelligent Personal Information Managers.
