“It is an honor to be recognized by the industry experts at CTI Magazine,” said John Saverino, Callware’s President and CEO. “We are proud of the Callegra suite of products and believe it accurately represents our commitment to provide the highest quality products that meet and exceed our customer’s messaging needs.”

Callegra is an easy-to-use unified messaging product for managing voice and fax messages that integrates with popular e-mail packages (Microsoft Exchange/Outlook, Lotus Notes, Novell GroupWise) or can operate as a stand- alone voice messaging platform. Callegra’s telephone interface provides advanced voice mail functionality, access to voice and fax messages and performs notifications through paging or any telephone interface (office, remote or cellular). When integrated with e-mail, users see and respond to their voice and fax messages from their e-mail inbox. This allows users to select any media type when creating or responding to a message (e.g. a user can respond to a voice message with e-mail or forward a fax to a voice mailbox). Callegra also integrates with the Internet, allowing both remote access to messages for traveling users or the ability to integrate multiple Callegra servers, using the Internet as a transport medium for all types of messaging. Businesses using Callegra experience increased employee productivity through messaging efficiency, a lower cost of investment/ownership and a software product that provides both superior functionality and upgradability for long-term technological growth and investment protection.

Callegra is Year 2000 compliant and scales up to 96 ports. Callegra supports Windows 95, Windows 98 and Windows NT-based workstations and servers. Callegra supports every major PBX/KSU vendor and with this release has added support for several advanced digital switches, including those from popular telephone system vendors such as: Lucent, Nortel, Mitel, and NEC.
