PhoneValet Message Center 3.1 Adds Unlimited Voicemail Boxes Caller-initiated Remote Control and Call Transfer

OTTAWA, ON, Jan. 27, 2006 - Parliant Corp. today began shipping version 3.1 of PhoneValet Message Center, its multi-award-winning Mac telephony product for small businesses, homes, and home offices.

In addition to automated dialing, call screening, call blocking, call logging, call recording and forwarding messages via email, this new version of PhoneValet adds an unlimited number of voicemail boxes, the ability to transfer incoming calls and permit any caller to initiate Mac-based remote control processes from anywhere in world.

PhoneValet 3.1 offers unlimited voicemail boxes or announcement choices, up from a previous limit of 11. In the case of announcements, PhoneValet can provide callers with an unlimited amount of choices.

With PhoneValet 3.1 any caller can remotely control PhoneValet to execute AppleScript or UNIX shell scripts that trigger on-demand information via text-to-speech (weather or stock updates, iCal events), control X-10 enabled cameras, or play archived news podcasts among many other applications. Previous versions allowed only the PhoneValet owner to initiate remote controls.

Each voicemail box can now transfer calls to another extension or cause an associated AppleScript to execute, as well as record a message. The new call transfer feature is dependent upon available phone company or PBX services options.

PhoneValet Message Center's phone adapter hardware and application software combination retails for $199.95 per line. A download of a PhoneValet 3.1 software upgrade is available to existing PhoneValet Message Center 3.0 customers for free, and $29.95 per line for PhoneValet 2.0 customers.
