Software and Hardware Requirements

You can use Azam on any current PC running Microsoft® Windows XP (Home and Professional), Windows 2000, Windows ME or Windows 98SE with Windows Media Player 9 installed. Microsoft's® Speech API (available from the download page) must also be installed to use the Azam Text to Speech function. Azam may also work on older versions of Windows, and on embedded Windows operating systems, such as Windows CE, but these have not been tested and are not formally supported. You will need a sound card, speakers and a microphone. (A professional microphone is supplied with the boxed version of Azam). In order to use the Phone function, you will need a modem with full Voice support (DATA/FAX/VOICE). Please check with the manufacturer before purchasing your modem to ensure it fully supports Voice functionality. Sufficient hard disk space should be available for storage of your Azam files. Despite excellent compression, sound files are large, typically 1MB per minute of recording. Video files are even larger.

Download our AzamTest utility to ensure your PC is capable of running the Azam application.

Azam at work

When using Azam to record meetings, you capture the tone, don't lose a word and store them for future reference or management review. Plus, you avoid writing minutes. Just think how easy it is to:

TickSend a complete or partial recording of the meeting to participants, absentees or anyone who needs to feel "part of the process"
TickIndex action points for individual attendees
TickIndex sections that require external advice (e.g. legal, marketing, top management) and email them just those sections. Later, collate their feedback into the Azam recording.
TickEdit out sensitive or confidential sections for general distribution
TickCollate different sessions for presentations or management review

Brainstorming with Azam is even more creative, both in meetings and with "round robin" distribution of thoughts and ideas. Ideas collected outside the office aren't lost. Dictaphone recordings can easily be imported into Azam.

Busy managers use Azam to personalize their feedback to staff. Company leaders to inspire and motivate their employees. Outside the company, Azam brings you closer to clients, suppliers and partners. And it helps you manage a transparent relationship with the Press.

Azam's telephone function is invaluable for tracking sales and support calls with clients, as a tool for training new staff and to make the most of conference calls and telephone "meetings" with professionals, such as lawyers and consultants. Because it's all on the record, Azam helps avoid misunderstandings and resolve disputes.

Interviews are another key area for Azam use, for HR professionals and marketing/PR agencies alike. Voice recordings allow a qualitative analysis to be shared with others, or incorporated into reports and presentations to illustrate the points you're making.

Azam at home

Azam is fun! And it brings friends and family closer together. It's great for historic events - baby's first few words or Grandma's 80th birthday speech - for recurrences - personalized birthday and seasonal greetings - and for everyday use - keeping a personal voice diary or sending jokes to friends.

Children and teenagers enjoy using Azam to send messages - often romantic! - to friends. It's faster and more personal than texting and you aren't limited to one friend: Azam messages can be emailed to as many friends as you like. And they can have fun editing, cutting and pasting your message and forwarding it on to others.

What could be more fun than sharing video clips using email, rather than expensive mobile phones!
