Active Voice Redefines Unified Messaging

Radical New Era of Unified Messaging Begins with Release of Repartee v10.0

SEATTLE, WA—November 19, 2007 - Active Voice, LLC, a global provider of Unified Messaging, Unified Communications and speech-activated solutions, today announced the official release of Repartee® version 10.0, the Company’s breakthrough innovation of their Unified Messaging (UM) solution designed for small-to-medium businesses (SMBs) and the mobile workforce.

Eyal Inbar, General Manager of Marketing at Active Voice, emphasizes that the new features launched in Repartee v10.0 is just the beginning of a radically new era for the UM marketplace.

“I can state unequivocally that this release of Repartee is the most advanced, yet incredibly easy-to-use, UM solution that is unbeatable in the market. No other Unified Communications provider can offer this level of progressive and pure innovation,” said Inbar. “We have leveraged key Internet capacities and mobile devices that business users commonly use to help them stay connected to colleagues and customers on time and on target.”

Key new features included in Repartee v10.0 are:

  • Accessibility to voicemail via RSS Feeds
  • Retrieval of voicemail, fax and e-mail from any communication device using Microsoft® Outlook, iGoogle or Apple® iTunes
  • ActiveSuite Client Applications
  • Smartphone PDA support

“Many published articles about UC technology stress the absolute need for user-friendly capabilities because there are currently no UC providers that offer simplicity with advanced functionality,” added Inbar. “Active Voice is committed to meeting these needs and we do that with this new version of Repartee for SMBs. Simply put, Repartee v 10.0 will help businesses keeping costs low and productivity high. Users will spend less time managing messages and more time acting on them.”

Furthermore, advanced notification features alert employees to messages that matter, and the mobile workforce will find it as easy to communicate on the road as in office. As a result, there is an increase in productivity, acceleration in response time and improved customer service as employees stay connected with colleagues and clients.

Inbar added: “For SMBs looking to move into Unified Communications gradually, implementing a Unified Messaging system such as Repartee will elevate the simplicity of that migration process—guaranteed.”

Repartee v10.0 is a PC-based Unified Messaging software appliance that is built upon a proven software code and the Linux operating system, offering SMBs growth potential and sustainability. It is available through Active Voice dealers and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).
