Just when you thought your PC couldnt manage any more information, Lucent Technologies introduced Messaging 2000, a system that manages voice and fax messages.
Intended for small- and medium-size organizations, the system integrates a range of standard and optional voice- and fax-messaging capabilities into a computer telephone system. Companies can also choose to link their Messaging 2000 system to local area networks, allowing employees to access and manage their voice and fax messages visually through their PCs. This system gives small companies many of the same kinds of multimedia messaging tools generally used by larger firms.
The system is best for companies whose employees need to communicate often and who are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week..
Messaging 2000 includes an automated attendant that can route calls or page employees; a screening feature telling users the callers name, giving them the option to accept, reject or transfer the call; fax on demand; multilingual capabilities; and visual mailbox links.
Prices start at $9,500.
