Dominant vendor of Mac Telephony solutions ships new release to support all major computer operating systems

OGDENSBURG, NY & OTTAWA, ON (June 2, 2009) — Continuing its commitment to revolutionize the way small and medium businesses use telephones, Parliant Corporation is now shipping PhoneValet Message Center 6.

As the winner of two MacWorld Expo Best of Show Awards, the coveted Macworld Magazine Best Product of the Year Award, and the OCRI Best Product of the Year Award, Parliant now extends it's Small Business Phone Solution to all the major computer operating systems.

PhoneValet 6 offers a rich set of field proven features:

  • automated attendant,
  • unlimited number of voice mail boxes,
  • call blocking, recording, logging and screening,
  • automated dialing from Address Book and other third party applications and web pages.
  • Interactive Voice Response (IVR) capabilities. Change the IVR greetings over the phone.
  • Recorded messages are emailed to users

PhoneValet 6 will now call out (to a cell phone for example) to deliver newly received messages directly to you, as soon as they are received. A different phone number to call can be set for each mailbox.

With the new multi-platform features of PhoneValet 6, a business's collection of Smart Phones, various email viewers, land line phones, cell phones, PC's, Macs, or any other computer platform that supports current browsers such as Linux or Solaris; all become access points to PhoneValet's features.

Leveraging your existing investments, PhoneValet services are layered on top of a business's pre-existing investment in phones, be they single line analog phones used at home, multi-line analog phones used in many business, or the newly popular multi-lined, multi-handset cordless phone systems.

PhoneValet hardware permits a mix of phone line technologies: standard analog lines from the traditional phone company, cable company phone lines or with VoIP phone lines with ATAs. PhoneValet provides a truly multimodal system only dreamed of by traditional PBX or VoIP vendors.

"PhoneValet is ideal for a SOHO office with Mac, Unix and Windows computers," said Parliant President Kevin Ford. "A PhoneValet system with four telephone lines runs great on an inexpensive Mac Mini. As of Version 6, our powerful web-based interface to calls and messages, now allows dialing and receptionist functions from any current web browser. Never before has a small office phone system had the ability to automatically capture and access their corporate phone history through phones, email, or web browsers. And PhoneValet's call recordings level the playing field as small businesses deal with large ones."

PhoneValet 6 retails at $169.95 per telephone line, irrespective of how many phone handsets, voice mail boxes or computer users are involved. Each PhoneValet package includes Apple Mac server software and Parliant's USB telephone adapter and is available from Parliant's Web site at www.parliant.com.

PhoneValet 6 comes with a 30-day money-back customer satisfaction guarantee. Some features described require the PhoneValet Anywhere network server add-on, available for $59.95 per server, no matter how many phone lines or how many users.

Users of previous releases of PhoneValet can upgrade for $39.95 per line. Those who purchased PhoneValet 5.x after April 15, 2009 get a free upgrade to 6.0.
