Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) August 27, 2004 -
ThePhoneBOT.com announced today the availability of ThePhoneBOT version 4.0, the latest release of its popular web-based voicemail retrieval software. Also released today is the new PhoneBOT Remote Client application, an innovative new technology that allows users to expand the Windows-based answering machine and voicemail screening capabilities to serve multiple locations over networked PCs. Designed to replace a standard home/office answering machine or telephone company voicemail, ThePhoneBOT and PhoneBOT Remote Client software is now available for download at http://www.ThePhoneBOT.com
With ThePhoneBOT version 4.0 software and a compatible voice modem installed on a userÂs PC, multiple Remote Client PCs can now be connected via an IP address within the home, or between home and office locations. When an incoming call arrives, ThePhoneBOT relays caller-ID information and streams the voice of the caller as they are leaving their voicemail message - all in real-time, with no delay - to multiple networked PCs via the Remote Clients IP address.
ÂWith ThePhoneBOT installed at home, and the Remote Client at the office I hardly know where the phone line is plugged in anymore!Â said David Brown, a long-time customer of ThePhoneBOT. ÂWhile I was used to earlier versions of ThePhoneBOT sending me text messages whenever a voice message was waiting on my home phone, now I can be working in my office and with the Remote Client a popup window appears the instant someone calls my home, giving me the caller-ID information and even a picture of the caller.Â
Brown added, ÂCoolest of all I actually hear the caller leaving the message - while they are leaving it! ItÂs like I am sitting in front of the answering machine at home screening the call, only IÂm miles awayÂ itÂs quite amazing!Â
Additional features in version 4.0 include a built-in web server for online voicemail retrieval of saved messages from any web browser, custom greetings for each caller, a skinable UI, and/or text message alerts of new calls or voicemail. An ideal solution for a family or small office with multiple computers, The PhoneBOT and the Remote Client communicate over the Internet and / or over a local home network.
ÂOur family has up to six computers Â including laptops Â typically running on our home network. With ThePhoneBOT and the Remote Clients installed, now when the telephone rings everyone in the family knows who it is, and who it is for, right away!Â said Kayla White, a real-estate agent and a new customer of ThePhoneBOT. ÂPlus when I am in the office or at a local hotspot using the Wi-Fi connection on my laptop, ThePhoneBOT Remote Client automatically connects me to my home and doesnÂt miss a beat!Â
ThePhoneBOT and the new Remote Client application extend ThePhoneBOTÂs leadership in the Windows PC telephone answering machine market. Users only need a Windows XP/2000 PC, soundcard, compatible voice modem and a telephone line. A broadband internet connection and caller-ID functionality provided by the phone company is also recommended, but not required.
ThePhoneBOT and Remote Client software are available at http://www.ThePhoneBOT.com in two versions. A freeware version, with a 20-second message limitation, and the $39.95 full version. Unlimited Remote Clients are free with both versions. There are no subscription or monthly fees for ThePhoneBOT.
