Voicent is a crime-fighting star in Hollywood

Click to watch the story from Associated Press's web site

Voicent's BroadcastByPhone has many, many uses, not the least of which is a code-enforcement tool for communities fighting the scourge of illegal signs strewn along highways and packed into intersections.

Many communities are using Voicent's BroadcastByPhone to take advantage of the signs' weakness--they include phone numbers to call for whatever product or service the sign is offering.

So, community officials put those numbers into BroadcastByPhone and tell it to call them. Over and over and over until the owners of the illegal signs take them down and pay a fine.

The effectiveness of the solution in the city of Hollywood, Florida, attracted an Associated Press reporter based in Miami to do a story for print and broadcast media.

The story wound up going national, with ABC, CBS, NPR, Washington Post and other major news organizations picking it up.

Here are links to stories in The Huffington Post and The New York Times.

Coincidentally, on the same day, a story in Broward County's Sun-Sentinal newspaper reported that a legal challenge to the City of Hollywood's use of the crime-fighting tactic was rejected, allowing Voicent to continue to patrol the clean streets of Hollywood.
