Updated: January 05, 2011

ATLANTA, Oct. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Commetrex Corporation announced today the general availability of BladeWareVXi version 2.0. Commetrex' chief marketing officer, Tom Ray, commented, "Commetrex has invested significantly in the development of BladeWareVXi over the past few years. In particular, we have focused on increasing the performance and enhancing the usability of the product. With our latest release, we have further distanced BladeWareVXi from its' predecessor, OpenVXi."

Key enhancements in the latest release of BladeWareVXi include:

  • Significant performance improvement
  • Includes latest stable releases of Xerces, libcurl, and Spider Monkey.
  • 64-bit support
  • Built-in DTMF recognizer

An early adopter of BladeWareVXi 2.0 will be Sandata Technologies, LLC, a leading national provider of information-technology solutions to the home-healthcare industry. One of Sandata's flagship solutions, Santrax Telephony, allows the in-home caregivers to dial into the system to report time and attendance as well as the services provided and various diagnostic results. Sandata's back-end systems then provide a suite of solutions focused on enhanced reporting, analysis, billing, and payroll. Santrax uses Commetrex' BladeWareVXi VoiceXML interpreter to reduce the development and maintenance costs of the many interactive scripts needed to service Sandata's over 100-million annual telephone calls.

According to Judy Ross, a Sandata vice president, "With our large capacity and growth plans, we needed a VXML interpreter with great performance. We benchmarked BladeWareVXi, and found that Commetrex had made significant performance improvements to OpenVXi, on which it is based. Commetrex was also willing to provide us with the professional services we needed to adapt BladeWareVXi to our platform and upgrade the product to 64-bit support. We are looking forward to this latest release."

In conjunction with this announcement, Commetrex announced the addition of a key member to the Commetrex Board of Advisors, Clegg Ivey, former VP, Corporate Development; General Counsel, and one of the co-founders of Voxeo Corporation, a leading provider of IVR platforms and IVR hosting for enterprises, call centers, and IVR developers.

Ivey commented on Commetrex' prospects: "Commetrex has been one of Voxeo's longest-standing technology partners, going back to the days when VoIP was new and the jury was still out on SIP as a telephony protocol. Now, with the recent additions to the BladeWare™ product line, Commetrex represents a unique value proposition in the world of fax-telephony software platforms, and is moving to duplicate that position in voice."

"We are honored to have this telecom-industry leader join our team," said Mike Coffee, CEO, Commetrex Corporation. "His industry depth, market knowledge, and experience. along with his enviable record of success in raising funds for growing companies, will have a significant impact on the future of our company."
