MiniVoice also offers an expansion board providing businesses with an
additional three hours of storage and 32 extra mailboxes; for a total of 4.5
hours of message storage and 64 mailboxes. MiniVoice is scheduled for
commercial availability on March 28, 2001.
According to Steve Borcich, Vodavi's vice president of sales and
marketing, "Vodavi primarily serves the business communication needs of
organizations with less than 200 employees, the fastest-growing business
sector comprising over 85 percent of U.S. businesses.
"MiniVoice fills a need in our product offering and is a perfect fit
for businesses needing an entry-level, non-proprietary voice mail system that
includes the most frequently used and most popular features at an extremely
attractive price point."
Borcich added, "We are extremely proud to prove once again that
Vodavi is in the business of providing total solutions, and we are highly
committed to developing a range of feature-rich and price competitive
communications products for our small- and medium-size business customers."
MiniVoice Features Aren't Puzzling
MiniVoice offers a host of user-friendly features, such as time and date
stamp, password protection, message wait light and message routing. In
addition, DTMF Administrative Programming allows users to retrieve messages
and change their voice mail parameters from any touch-tone phone. Another
convenient feature is that MiniVoice can be programmed to alert users on their
pager when they have a new voice mail message.
The MiniVoice auto attendant allows callers to bypass the menu of recorded
extensions and simply dial the extension they wish to reach. This expedites
the call, giving callers the information they need as quickly as possible.
Users needing a more robust voice processing application with higher port
capacity and access to a greater number of features can select Vodavi's
TalkPath, Dispatch and PathFinder products.
Pricing and Availability
MiniVoice is scheduled for commercial availability on March 28, 2001
through authorized STARPLUS, STARPLUS TRIAD and infinite dealers. MiniVoice
will retail for less than $1,000.
