VoiceGenie and JSmart Announce Partnership to Co-Market VoiceXML Games in Europe

VoiceGenie and JSmart team up to sell voice-activated games in the European market (October 23, 2001)
VoiceGenie Technologies Inc., the leading provider of VoiceXML Gateway solutions, and JSmart, an entertainment software company focused on the mobile Internet, announce their partnership to co- market JSmart games running on the VoiceGenie VoiceXML Gateway in Europe. Multi-player games, such as Head-2-Head Trivia where players are pitted against one another in real time matches, are VoiceXML compliant and run on the VoiceGenie VoiceXML Gateway.

JSmart is increasing mobile data usage and adoption, by giving subscribers easy-to-use, entertaining content. The company's products appeal to all demographics. Other JSmart software includes single player games like Smart Stakes, Smart Trivia, Smart Secrets, Smart Survey, StreetSmart, and more.


"We are pleased to partner with JSmart, an exciting company that is leading the way in VoiceXML games development and deployment," said Eric Jackson, VoiceGenie's Vice President of Strategy and Business Development. "JSmart delivers creative applications that offer a unique user experience - unlike visual games - that are highly suited to VoiceXML."

Mr. Jackson continued, "Voice-activation has made great strides in Europe among service providers and enterprises, where we are seeing rapid adoption of VoiceXML, particularly in the area of games. Unlike North Americans, European consumers are accustomed to usage fees for value-added services. The European market is an important component of our growth strategy. In the past two quarters, VoiceGenie has gained significant customers in Europe and, with this partnership, we expect that growth to accelerate."

The JSmart software strategy embraces seamless support for multiple interfaces and open standards, particularly VoiceXML, and also includes WAP, SMS, and Java.

"In developing a number of VoiceXML based games over the past year, we looked around at various VoiceXML Gateway companies to team with," said Justin Seigel, JSmart CEO. "We are very excited to be working with VoiceGenie, the recognized leader in VoiceXML premises-based and hosted Gateways. We found VoiceGenie eager to co-promote our suite of games to their base of customers, opening a new channel for JSmart."

JSmart Technologies, Inc. is a smart entertainment software company with offices in the US and Israel. The company provides smart solutions to wireless carriers and portals looking to greatly improve mobile data adoption and usage rates through fun, interactive and compulsive content. JSmart software uses voice, WAP, SMS, and Java technology, allowing it to run on all mobile platforms and handsets. For more information please visit www.jsmart.com or contact info@jsmart.com.
