Built from the ground up to harness the power of Mac OS X, PhoneValet includes all the hardware and software required to connect your Mac to the phone line.

Speech Enabled!
Effortlessly dial just by saying the name. Hear your caller's name announced before you pick up the phone. Works right out of the box, without speech training or pre-recorded names.

Know who is calling!
Incoming calls are displayed in large type on the screen and announced aloud. PhoneValet can even send email or run AppleScripts when calls come in.

Powerful Logging!
PhoneValet keeps a list of your calls, inbound and outbound. You'll know when you used the phone, with whom and for how long. Small businesses can even export these records to create invoices for time billing. With PhoneValet, lost numbers are a thing of the past.

Simplify Dialing!
Designed for busy homes and small businesses, PhoneValet maintains your phonebook, looks up the phone number and dials for you. PhoneValet even understands 10-digit dialing and uses your most appropriate calling card.

Sets up in Minutes!
No complex manuals required. Simply connect the USB Telephone Adapter (included), load the PhoneValet software, import your numbers from Apple's Address Book or other programs, and you're ready to go. Works with your existing analog phones.

Built for Growth!
