PhoneValet 5.0 Delivers Unsurpassed Call Recording and Better Telephony Capabilities to Legal Offices

OTTAWA ON, 29 November, 2006 — PhoneValet Message Center 5.0 from Parliant Corp. gives 1-to-10 person law offices with a single Mac computer the telephony management capabilities of national legal firms. PhoneValet's combined software and hardware platform turns a Mac into a labor-saving, money-making partner able to serve both PC and Mac-based law offices.

With numerous industry accolades including two Macworld Best of Show awards, PhoneValet offers auto-attendant options, unlimited voice mailboxes, plus call recording, logging and screening to help keep busy lawyers focused on clients, and staff focused on billable work versus phone interruptions.

"PhoneValet 5.0 provides lawyers with the ability to search and retrieve phone records in seconds using any of eleven different search criteria," says Parliant Founder and CEO, Kevin Ford. "The ability to retrieve this quantity of information using a keyword or two has never been available to the legal profession on an affordable basis."

Lawyers manage multiple clients and discuss a variety of detailed information on the phone. Using PhoneValet 5.0 Call Recording and Call Log, an audio recording of any recorded call is retrievable in seconds. The recording quality of PhoneValet 5.0 is so good it is used for radio interviews and podcasts. The sound file recorded on PhoneValet is automatically stamped with the date, the time, the duration of the call, the specific phone line in use, and the name and number of the person called.

Additionally, lawyers and their assistants can categorize calls by client or date, set an automated option to record only specific calls, make notes on each call directly into the log, and index call logs onto CDs for permanent back-up, plus easy storage and retrieval. With PhoneValet Anywhere (a browser-based remote control that shows status of all phone lines and allows stop and start recording from remote Macs or PCs), lawyers can retrieve the index of their Call Log over a Web browser, inside or outside the office, and listen to any call was recorded by the system.

With an attractive interface designed to simplify access to its many telephony features, Parliant's PhoneValet 5.0 efficiently runs the whole law office's voice mail system. PhoneValet 5.0 can also deliver voice mail to a lawyer's or legal assistant's email address so that phone messages are delivered direct to the work or home desktop, wireless laptop or portable smart phone.

"PhoneValet 5.0 also adds multi-level calling options with an unlimited number of voice mailboxes. You can now have multiple calling options for day time, lunch hour, evenings or weekends." says Ford. "Our new technology is a smart solution that saves time and money. For the price of an answering machine, PhoneValet offers comprehensive call management to any size of law firm."

PhoneValet 5.0 retails at $169.95 per line for new users (including software and Parliant's USB telephone adapter) and is available from Parliant's Web site at PhoneValet 5.0 is a Universal Binary, requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 later, QuickTime 6.5 or later and an available USB port.
