Phone Amego extends Mac CTI to Popular IP Phones
May 15, 2012 in Utility
[prMac.com] Cumberland, Rhode Island - Phone Amego, the Mac utility for computer telephone integration (CTI) has added support for popular IP phones including Polycom, Yealink, Aastra, and Snom along with guides for choosing a Mac friendly IP phone and service provider. CTI has historically been dominated by Windows TAPI with few choices for Mac users.
"The combination of Phone Amego and a Polycom phone is far greater than each of the two alone." said Judd Sheets, a recent Phone Amego customer. "It would be hard to go back to a non-CTI setup now."
Phone Amego makes it easy to enjoy the key benefits of CTI:
* Save time dialing when the number you want to call is already on your computer;
* Identify who is calling before you reach for your phone;
* Block or ignore unwanted calls;
* Organize call records and bring up related information with a few clicks.
The product works with many kinds of phones including Bluetooth cell phones, landlines, and VoIP services accessed through an IP phone, soft-phone, or VoIP adaptor. As the transition to VoIP continues, Phone Amego offers deep integration with the compatibility Mac users have come to expect.
"Phone Amego is a wonderful convenience that's unobtrusive yet surprisingly capable" said Peter Sichel, Chief Engineer of Sustainable Softworks. "You already have software on your Mac for organizing your contacts, calendar, email, notes, and other information about the people you interact with. Why not use it with your phones?"
Phone Amego runs on Mac OS X 10.6 or later (32/64-bit Universal),
and works with a wide range of compatible phones and services.
Pricing and Availability:
Phone Amego can be purchased from the Sustainable Softworks online web store for $29.99. A fully functional 21-day trial version is available for immediate download.
