Posted by Rob Lewis

Mountain View's SabSe Technologies Inc. announced today that is acquiring Montreal-based Mobivox for its market leading voice-activated services and solutions platform. The acquisition, coming only two months after its acquisition of Jaxtr, will enable Sabse’s global network of carrier partners to rapidly deploy voice-activated services to their customers.

Eric Reiher, who founded Mobivox in 2005, said: “We’re very proud that Sabse Technologies values so highly the voice-services-development environment we’ve carefully nurtured. We look forward to working closely with Yogesh and his team to bring voice-activated services to carriers and theirs customers around the world.”

The Mobivox platform and patent portfolio adds to Sabse’s offering by providing a proven voice- interface-programming language, in-the-cloud contact book storage along with network-agnostic telephony integration. Additionally, Mobivox brings a very deep team of speech developers that combined bring more than 100 years of expertise. The Mobivox Voice User Interface (VUI), available in English, French, Spanish and Portuguese languages, is used by partners around the world.

Mobivox provides its partners and customers a host of voice-activated mobile value-added services, including worldwide inbound and outbound calling, group communication and voice-to-text services. Financial details were not released but Toronto's BrightSpark was one of the earliest venture-capital backers of Mobivox.
