Parliant Corporation unveils PhoneValet Message Center at MacWorld

New release features voicemail, call recording, voice dialing, talking caller ID and call logging

San Francisco, CA (MacWorld Conference & Expo Booth SF3) - January 5, 2004 — Parliant Corporation, world leading developers of speech-based products for business and consumer use, today announced its PhoneValet Message Center (PVMC), a new Mac OS X-based voicemail product which builds on its existing multi-line computer telephony solution.

This new member of the PhoneValet product family adds a multi-line answering machine, multiple voicemail boxes and call recording to an already powerful telephony application suite.

More than an answering machine, PVMC keeps track of your calls, dials numbers quickly and accurately, tells you who's calling and keeps you in touch with your calls when you're out. It also offers call recording functions, allowing a recording of both sides of a conversation to be saved as an audio file.

Present a professional image... 24 hours a day!
PVMC offers big business efficiencies with a personal touch. Callers can choose to leave messages in one of up to 11 mailboxes (each with a specific greeting) or all mailboxes can be turned off to create an announcement only service. PhoneValet Message Center handles all your phone lines at the same time, and messages can be emailed to your cell phone, home or office.

PhoneValet makes a business asset of your telephone records
PVMC adds call recording to PhoneValet's already impressive call logging features. Inbound and outbound calls are listed in a permanent call history, which is easily searchable and sortable and has room for notes. When you choose to record a call, audio is integrated into this comprehensive database for quick retrieval.

Easy Dialing from Address Book and other applications
PVMC's powerful dialing rules can automate 10-digit, long-distance and calling card dialing. Calls will always be dialed correctly when you dial directly from applications using Apple's Services menu, or through AppleScript from your favorite contact manager or FileMaker. PhoneValet even offers voice dialing.

Screen calls and greet callers appropriately
With PVMC, you will know who's calling before you answer the phone. Incoming calls are displayed in large type on the screen, and announced over your computer speakers. You can even write AppleScripts to task your contact manager when calls are received.

PVMC includes all required hardware and software to help you get more out of your existing telephones. No modem needed. PVMC will ship in Q1 2004 and there is an introductory offer of a single line system for $199.95 USD for pre-orders. Current PhoneValet owners can preorder an upgrade for $70.00 USD at or 1-866-864-2334.
