“Eavesdrop provides unprecedented assurance that administrators will

founder and president of Crooked Arm. “Never before have

calls,” Gripman continued. “The user only knows she or he can’t open

specific account status. Eavesdrop can be configured to provide
information notifications to administrators directly on screen, via
email or text message. Eavesdrop can also trigger AppleScripts for
ultimate flexibility. Eavesdrop supports password protected FileMaker
