SALT LAKE CITY (Dec. 5, 2008) – Sorenson Communications®, the leading provider of Sorenson Video Relay Services (SVRS ®) for deaf and hard-of-hearing individuals who use American Sign Language (ASL) to communicate, announced that it will open a Sorenson IP Relay (SIPRelay®) Call Center in Price, early in 2008. SIPRelay is a free service which enables deaf and hard-of-hearing individuals to quickly and easily communicate with hearing phone users from any PC or mobile device.
The SIPRelay Call Center, created in response to the increased demand for SIPRelay services, will employ both part-time and full-time individuals as Communications Assistants (CAs) and support personnel. Workers will receive initial and ongoing training.
The SIPRelay Call Center will temporarily be housed in Price’s old Division of Wildlife space and will initially employ about 50 employees. As demand for SIPRelay increases, the employee base will expand to more than 100 individuals, necessitating a move to a larger facility. By the end of summer, the SIPRelay Call Center will move into a newly-completed, 9,500-square-foot building, located on the corner of 600 west and 200 south in Price.
“The announcement of a Sorenson Communications’ SIPRelay Call Center being established in Price is great news,” said Utah Governor Jon Huntsman, who attended the press conference, held at Sorenson Communications’ new corporate headquarters, located in Salt Lake City. “The citizens of Carbon and Emery counties have a strong work ethic and will be a tremendous asset to Sorenson Communications. These jobs will further diversify the workforce and stimulate valuable economic development in that part of the state.”
Pat Nola, president and CEO of Sorenson Communications, noted, “The SIPRelay Call Center in Price and the Communications Assistants who work there will provide much-needed services to deaf and hard-of-hearing individuals across the country.
The demographics of Carbon and Emery Counties, which include students who need part-time and flexible work and residents seeking full-time employment – as well as the area’s strong sense of community and work ethic, made Price a natural choice. We look forward to a long and fruitful partnership with the citizens of Carbon and Emery counties.”
