|Chris Miller, Julian and Bruce sit down
with David Brigida from IBM and Josh Schrager from VoiceRite
where we talk about something we never have discussed on the podcast -
unified communications and unified messaging. |
We start out the show by defining what unified communications and unified
messaging are and then talk about the VoiceRite Client for Sametime 7.5.
We then learn how you never have to pick up the phone to check your
voice mail change greeting since you can do all of that from your Sametime
client. Whether you have an old analog or new Voice over IP PBX from any
where in the world you can see who's calling your voice mail, send an IM
message to Sametime which is spoken to the callers or even transfer the
call to a soft phone or cell phone.
Josh then tells us about VoiceRite's Name
Dialer for Domino which allows
you to have an automated receptionist for your company so that caller to
your company can say the name or department of anyone in your directory
and be automatically transferred to them.
You can also see a demonstration of both products at the VoiceRite pedestal
(number 621) at Lotusphere 2007 in the Product Showcase.
