Callware awarded 1999 Network Magazine Product of the Year in Unified Messaging

Callware Technologies, a leader in advanced messaging and computer telephony solutions, today announced that its Callegra product, released in September 1998, has been honored with the prestigious Network Magazine’s “1999 Product of the Year” award.

“Among the thousands of new products that appeared in 1998, the editors of Network Magazine recognize 38 that stand out from the rest,” stated Network Magazine in the May, 1999 issue. “We select Products of the Year to recognize and draw attention to the products that stand out from the surrounding landscape.” A common denominator of the winners is that the Network Magazine editors identified them as the most significant products within their categories that shipped in calendar year 1998.

“We’re pleased to be recognized by Network Magazine for our unified messaging product,” stated Dale Ainge, new president and COO of Callware Technologies. “Callware has made every effort to ensure that Callegra delivers unquestionable value to everyone who uses it, and our growing list of customers and product awards affirms that we are meeting this goal.”

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 an e-mail or forward a fax to a voice mailbox). Callegra also integrates with the Internet, allowing both remote access to messages for travelling 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.
