Gold Systems' customer mentioned

Gold Systems' very first customer on the Microsoft Speech Server was mentioned on Ken Circeo's blog, and I've been slow to acknowledge the story.  He tells the story better than I could, but he doesn't mention the customer's name.  Since they allowed us to write a case study about their experience, I think it is OK for me to say who it is, plus I'm happy to give the company some publicity.  ServiceMagic is the customer, and they have a great business.  If you are looking for a contractor to do some work around the house, and you would like to actually get a call back, try ServiceMagic.  (A contractor came to my house today, and not only did he return my call but he WROTE STUFF DOWN.  He's destined for success.)

If you want to read more about what we built and why it worked so well, our case study is here in a large pdf.  To everyone at ServiceMagic, thank you for being a great customer and I wish you continued great success!

Thank you Ken for mentioning this story, and I believe you SHOULD get that new Tablet PC.  The future of Speech Recognition technology practically depends on it!

Ken does mention ServiceMagic in his posting (several times). He just doesn't mention which software company wrote the app!

That's what I get for taking so long to post the story! Of course Gold Systems wrote the application. :-)
