PhoneValet 2.2 adds Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger support for Spotlight searching of Voice Mail and Call Recordings
Ottawa, CANADA - (April 28, 2005) - PhoneValet Message Center, the award-winning Mac telephony product by Parliant Corp. for small businesses, homes, and home offices, now supports Mac OS X version 10.4 "Tiger" including complete integration with Apple's new Spotlight desktop search.
PhoneValet version 2.2 places voice mail messages alongside email messages in Tiger's Spotlight search results. Voice mail messages can be located on the basis of caller's name, telephone number, full-text comments and transcriptions (if entered) plus many other PhoneValet data fields. Call recordings are similarly indexed by Spotlight, as well as results from PhoneValet's call log of inbound and outbound calls -- a highly desirable feature for anyone doing time billing or contact management analysis.
"Apple's latest Mac OS gives our customers fresh, compelling value from PhoneValet," said Kevin Ford, CEO of Parliant. "For example, a single Spotlight search for a co-worker can return documents written for and by that person, address book information, email messages and PhoneValet voice mails, call recordings and recent calls as well. Our customers will love Apple's new Spotlight approach to assembling contact and call information from every corner of a Mac's hard disk with a single search."
"Spotlight's ability to find anything on the computer as quickly as you type is just one of hundreds of new features which make Tiger the world's most advanced operating system," said Ron Okamoto, Apple's vice president of Worldwide Developer Relations. "We're excited to see PhoneValet use the power of Spotlight to give users the ability to quickly show voicemail message search results along with all of their other related files."
