    Application Generator 

    At the heart of PhoneOfficetm is a powerful Application Generator. It allows you to tailor your voice menus into exactly what you need. Setting up your voice application is only a matter of linking up mailboxes that represent options the caller can choose to transverse the voice tree. 


    PhoneOfficetm can be integrated into your telephone switching system -PBX (Private Branch Exchange), Hybrid KSU (Key Service Unit), or 'Centrex'. By selecting a department from a voice menu or by entering an extension number, callers can immediately be transferred to the person or department they want. When the extension is busy or does not answer, PhoneOfficetm can take a message or give the caller the option to transfer to another extension. On a Centrex system, and even some sophisticated PBX systems, PhoneOfficetm can actually make transfers even to a Cellular phone... 


    PhoneOfficetm is configurable to either the 'one-call' or 'two-call' methods. With the 'one-call' method, the caller must be calling from a fax machine. PhoneOfficetm guides the caller with configurable voice menus to select the desired documents. After completing the choices, the caller simply presses the start button of the fax and the documents are transmitted instantaneously. The caller pays all the cost of retrieving the documents. With the 'two-call' method, the caller can be using any touch tone telephone. After selecting the desired documents, the caller is asked to enter the phone number of the fax machine which will receive the fax transmission. The requested documents are then put into an internal transmission queue to be faxed out automatically. 

    Voice Mail  

    PhoneOfficetm allows you to create up to 999 configurable mailboxes - each with password protection. You can assign a mailbox to each person in your company. Messages left in a mailbox can be accessed remotely by the mailbox owner - or directly from the screen - as shown below... 



    Even if there might be no phone system in your office, you can still set up an Auto-Attendant. The PhoneOfficetm can also be set up to page a selected person. The caller is put on hold while an external speaker (included) announces for the proper person (determined by the 'virtual' extension number entered by the caller) to pick up the phone. If no one answers within a preset number of announcements, the PhoneOfficetm will take a message or give the caller other options. 
    Message Forwarding & Beeper Notification 

    After a caller leaves a message in a voice mailbox, PhoneOfficetm can forward the message to a phone number preset by the mailbox owner. PhoneOfficetm can also call the mailbox owner's beeper to notify him or her by displaying a preset number - or additionally the phone number that the caller had entered. 

    Outbound Scheduler 

    With PhoneOfficetm you can schedule a message to be delivered to a person or a group of people. PhoneOfficetm can be set up to request a confirmation of a message receipt - or to record the recipient's response. A log of scheduled calls and a status (success/failure), including those for all Fax-On-Demand transmissions, is maintained by PhoneOfficetm

    Auto-Detection of Fax Tones  

    PhoneOfficetm can recognize fax tones and route the incoming fax to an external fax machine (for hard copy) or to the internal fax box (for fax/modem reception). PhoneOfficetm enables you now to use a single telephone line for both voice and fax

    Fax Scanner 

    With PhoneOfficetm you can use your fax machine to scan documents directly into your computer. Simply connect the fax machine straight into the PhoneOffice card with a single telephone cable, insert the document to be scanned, and press the "Start" button on the fax machine. Use this convenient feature to set up fax-on-demand documents - and save on the cost of an expensive scanner... 

    Background Operation  

    PhoneOfficetm runs in the background of Windows so you do not need to dedicate a computer to handle any of the PhoneOfficetm activities. You can also run other Windows applications concurrently in the foreground while PhoneOffice answer all your calls. 

    Send Fax from any Windows Application  

    WINFAX Lite from Delrina is included with PhoneOffice so that you can send fax from any Windows application simply by printing. 

    Data Modem  

    PhoneOfficetm also includes an on-board 2400 BPS Hayes compatible data modem. If you require advanced high speed data transmissions, choose PhoneOffice Plus.. It incorporates a 14.4 Kbps (v.32bis) modem with data compression (V42bis/MNP5) and error correction (V42/MNP 2-4) with a throughput of up to 115.2 Kbps.

      PhoneOffice Plus - all the features of PhoneOfficetm, Plus.....
    If you want to get the most out of every dollar you spend, you'll love PhoneOffice Plus. Because with PhoneOffice Plus you will find everything you need for your office communications - and more. PhoneOffice Plus has all the features of PhoneOffice, but with an upgraded modem speed to 14.4 KBPS for today's Internet communications. Also, there is an upgrade to the high quality WAVE format files for the voice component. And probably the most important is a 'live music on hold' - from external source - for a real look and sound of a professional business.. So, now with PhoneOffice Plus you can have a Call Attendant, Voice mail, Fax-On-Demand, and a high speed data/fax modem all on one line.  

    14.4 Kbps Data Modem 

    PhoneOffice Plus incorporates 14.4Kbps (V.32bis) modem with data compression (V. 42 bis/MNP 5), error correction (V.42/MNP 2-4), and a throughput of up to 115.2 Kbps. 

    14.4 Kbps Fax Modem 

    PhoneOffice Plus allows users to send fax from any Windows application with speeds of up to 14.4 Kbps (both send/receive) under Class 1 or Class 2 fax/modern standards. 

    Wave Format Voice Files 

    PhoneOffice Plus records voice and sound as Windows 3.1 WAVE (OLE compliant) files with sampling rate of 5 K/sec up to 22 K/sec. The WAVE format allows one to use other Windows multimedia sound editing tools to edit the recorded voice prompts or to insert background music. PhoneOffice Plus also allows the users to record voice prompts with either a microphone or the telephone handset. Also, a speaker output jack is setable in either mono or stereo mode. 

    Auto-Announcement with external on-hold music input 

    PhoneOffice Plus has the AutoAnnouncement feature like PhoneOffice but allows the user to input on-hold music from other music sources. The addition of this unique, and typically PBX feature to the system, is the distinguishing feature that puts the PhoneOffice Plus into the 'big league' of the Call Attendant/Voice mail systems costing many times more and yet relaying for this feature to be provided by the PBX system. PhoneOffice Plus delivers it with no PBX! 

      Package Includes 
      • PhoneOffice Plus 16-bit voice/fax/modem board
      • PhoneOffice Plus System software and manual
