telecommunications hub for small businesses, homes and home offices. PhoneValet Anywhere allows users to access PMC 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. Both Mac and PC users also view caller ID popups that announce caller names and numbers as calls come in, while 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 offers a the same interface as PhoneValet Message Center in a browser-based window accessible via an internet connection: "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."
PhoneValet Message Center 3.0 brings custom ring-tones for an audio signature indicating exactly who is calling, call blocking for unwanted calls, individualized voice-mail greetings to give special callers special
messages, and enhanced Spotlight Search of PhoneValet Message Center call logs for Macs equipped with Mac OS X 10.4 "Tiger"
PhoneValet Anywhere is $80 for the web server software and a two-user
license. Additional user licenses are $20 each. PhoneValet Anywhere
requires the PhoneValet Message Center 3.0 hardware and software package for
Mac OS X, which is available for $200. Existing PhoneValet 2.x customers can upgrade for $30 per phone line.
