Dial2Do Launches Voice-activated Mobile Phone Solution in the U.S.

By Nitya Prashant April 03, 2008
Dial2Do, a provider of voice-activated phone services, highlighted its entrance into the U.S. market this week during the CTIA show. The company’s service allows customers to voice-activate online communications such as e-mails, text messages and reminders.
The company is mostly targeting motorists with its services, enabling them to keep both hands on the wheel while using voice commands to dial numbers and perform other mobile phone tasks.
This type of service is likely to do well in the U.S. where there is growing awareness that ensuring safety on the roads requires hands-free technology for use of mobile phones while driving.
Some states have already passed laws banning users from holding their phones when driving. Other states, like Washington and California, will soon be putting similar laws into effect.
Dial2Do is betting that its services will be popular, since they offer a legal way to get 
things done using mobile phones while driving.
"As with many other countries around the world, the U.S. is now bringing in legislation to ensure people stay safe while driving, and to stop them holding their phones or even trying to text while driving. Dial2Do helps drivers stay both safe and productive, so this is a great time to show what it can do and to begin to work with partners in the U.S," said  Dial2Do CEO Ivan MacDonald in a statement.
Dial2Do is built on a hosted voice platform from Rococo Software Ltd.
