Parliant launches $49 PhoneValet Home Edition

Premier Mac voicemail comes home – with no monthly fees or message limits!
Macworld Expo Booth S-1912, San Francisco, CA, January 14, 2008 – Parliant
Corporation, makers of the multi-award-winning PhoneValet Message Center
for business, today releases PhoneValet Home Edition: an intelligent
telephone assistant that incorporates all of the features a busy family
could want to organize their calls!

PhoneValet Home Edition simplifies life for busy households and families by
announcing callers aloud and delivering personal voice mail by email.
Amazingly easy to install and use, PhoneValet Home Edition helps the right
person answer first, handles junk calls, plays ring tones, dials calls and
gives each family member their own mailbox!

“Our customers have been asking us how they can bring PhoneValet home from
the office,” said Parliant president Kevin Ford. “Now you can eliminate
monthly voicemail fees and stop wading through kids’ calls to find your own
– your messages track you down wherever you are in the world!”

When the caller’s name is announced aloud, the right person answers or the
call goes to voice mail. Ring tones identify special callers – a fun
feature that really pays off for identifying important calls. Teach
PhoneValet about repetitive junk callers and it answers them right away,
politely declines the call and hangs up – minimizing interruptions,
frustration and wasted time.

While PhoneValet Home Edition includes key family-friendly features,
PhoneValet Message Center is still recommended for small business. Message
Center includes a larger voicemail system with automated attendant,
supports multiple lines, records calls and more.
