About PhoneValet Message Center

More than an answering machine, PVMC is the invention that turns any Apple computer running Mac OS X into a telephone communications hub for homes and small businesses. Winner of a prestigious MacWorld Magazine Best of Show award, PhoneValet Message Center includes the hardware and software to do the work of a skilled staffer, greeting callers professionally, announcing each call by voice and on the screen, and permitting the call to be recorded in whole or in part.

Your Macintosh can now provide multi-line multi-mailbox voice mail, conversation recording, a searchable call history, talking caller id, caller-activated AppleScripting, a fax controller and voice dialing. Parliant's PVMC does all of this, simply, intuitively and elegantly, in the spirit of the Macintosh. PVMC gives a Mac the telephony capabilities the Apple community has always wanted but could never get. Parliant extends Apple's digital hub paradigm to include telephony.

PhoneValet Message Center is currently priced at $199.95. Today's release (version 2.1.6) is a free upgrade available for download from our website at
