It’s not everyday that a company changes their name and inherits an entire industry. InteractiveVoices is about to do just that by changing its operating name to Voices.com asserting itself as the definitive web service for anyone looking for a voice. Established in 2004 as a voice-over marketplace, the company's roots run deep in the audio recording business, originally founded as a recording and production studio in the year 2000. A combination of industry expertise, marketing, and education has been the foundation of Voices.com.
As the largest database of voices online, Voices.com sets out to achieve the following:
1. Make it easy to find voices regardless of language, location, and voice type.
2. Give every person with a voice the ability to be found and heard online.
3. Create a living database of every voice type and language in the world.
4. Be the definitive voice-overs news source for reporters, journalists and bloggers.
5. Provide talent career guidance and the tools to conduct business online.
Customers will be pleased to know that many aspects of the current service will remain the same, including the management team, mailing address, and toll-free telephone number. The new logo is strikingly similar to the current InteractiveVoices logo.
In addition to a new name, Voices.com will receive an updated look and feel, which will prove comfortable and familiar to existing members. Several new features will be included at Voices.com, many of which were requested by InteractiveVoices customers.
Early feedback from the business community has been contagiously positive, generating buzz from all angles and spreading like wild fire in the voice-over marketplace. The crew at InteractiveVoices recently attended the mesh conference in Toronto and gave a heads up about the name change to the Web 2.0 community and several voice talent who were present.
Company CEO, David Ciccarelli says, "Voices.com is a name that encompasses the entire industry, dropping the interactive media connotation, opening more doors to our customers. Voices.com is short, obvious, descriptive, and memorable.”
While certain new features are still under wraps, beta testing for the new web service is available to members of the media. To signup for Private Beta testing, please email beta[.]voices.com or visit the website: Voices.com
