VONaLink ScreenPop update
Arcosoft has released an update to VONaLink ScreenPop, its VoIP (Voice over IP) call recording and productivity software. VONaLink ScreenPop works with any VoIP phone system based on the open SIP standard, like Vonage and Asterisk, to prevent the dialing out of any phone number -- including long distance and toll calls. VONaLink ScreenPop is priced at $30 and supports up to 10 phone lines.
"One of our ScreenPop customers shared with me how he had some guests stay over at his house, and found some unexpected phone charges on his bill," says Tony Leung, founder of Arcosoft. "He never found out who made those calls, and did not want to inconvenience innocent people with questions."
VONaLink ScreenPop works by monitoring network packets via an Ethernet hub. The Windows version supports up to 10 phone lines. The software provides caller ID features, and can reject unwelcoem incoming calls based on various criteria like phone number, name, or partial matches.
