HONG KONG-Brite Voice Systems Inc. said it now provides cellular voice dialing in Hong Kong for Hutchison Telephone Co. Ltd. The system, valued at more than $1 million, is running on Hutchison’s Global System for Mobile communications network.
Hutchison hopes the value-added service will strengthen its position in Hong Kong’s crowded GSM market. Brite said it offers VoiceSelect to cellular subscribers in 12 of the largest cellular markets in the United States and more than 65 markets worldwide. Because the VoiceSelect service is network based, customers don’t need special equipment to use it.
Through Brite, Hutchison also offers Information Link, which connects callers to companies and services providing stock listings and horse racing results.
