Parliant's PhoneValet Anywhere Gives Web-based Multi-user Access to Core PhoneValet Features From Across the Internet or On Location
BOSTON, MA and OTTAWA--(MARKET WIRE)--Jul 11, 2005 -- MacWorld -- Responding to customer demand for multi-user, multi-platform, Web-based access to core PhoneValet Message Center features, today Parliant Corp. is announcing PhoneValet Anywhere. PhoneValet Anywhere is a software product extension to the PhoneValet Message Center 3.0 telecommunications hub for small businesses, homes and home offices, also being shown at MacWorld Boston. Both products are available now at www.parliant.com.
Equipped with PhoneValet Anywhere, anyone using PhoneValet Message Center 3.0 can access PhoneValet messages and reports, call log and phone book information from a Mac, PC, Linux, or Solaris-based computer through an Internet connection anywhere in the world. Mac and PC users also enjoy caller ID popups that announce caller names and numbers as calls come in, and Mac users can additionally hear voice announcements for those incoming calls.
"PhoneValet Anywhere turns a Mac equipped with PhoneValet Message Center 3.0 into a powerful Web telecommunications server," says Parliant President Kevin Ford. "This allows PhoneValet users to access core PhoneValet features wherever they have access to a computer with a Web browser. That could be from a PC on another floor in the office or home,or from a remote location like a conference hotel room, client site or cyber café across the globe."
PhoneValet Anywhere's interface is instantly recognizable to anyone familiar with PhoneValet Message Center, says Ford. Just open a browser, log into PhoneValet Anywhere, then quickly search through thousands of call records to find the exact call that can seal a business transaction, resolve a dispute or trigger an important recollection. Or know who is calling in real-time even as a PhoneValet message is being left and automatically emailed to you.
Ford also points out that PhoneValet Message Center 3.0 has been designed as a flexible, powerful platform for other upcoming Parliant products -- cementing Parliant's position as "the Mac telephony experts."
New PhoneValet Message Center 3.0 features include:
- Custom ring-tones for an audio signature indicating exactly who is calling
- Call blocking for unwanted calls, from aggressive sales reps to annoying relatives (or ex-relatives!)
- Individualized voice-mail greetings to give special callers special messages
- Enhanced Spotlight Search of PhoneValet Message Center call logs for Macs equipped with OS X 10.4 "Tiger"
PhoneValet Anywhere is $79.95 for the Web server software and a two-user license. Additional user licenses are $19.95 each. PhoneValet Anywhere requires the PhoneValet Message Center 3.0 hardware and software package for Mac OS X, priced at $199.95. Existing PhoneValet 2.x customers can upgrade for $29.95 per phone line.
