Digisoft, Artisoft and Calltrol Announce a New Single Server Solution

January 7, 2004 (New York, NY and Cambridge, MA) Digisoft Computers, Inc., developers of Telescript™, a leading contact center management software application and Artisoft™, Inc., (OTC: ASFT), developer of the first software-based phone system and CalltrolÆ Corporation developer of Convergence Friendly™ telephony for contact centers, today announced the availability of a single platform, integrated Predictive Dialer and software-based phone switch solution. 

Integrating the award-winning Telescript™ 5.5 and TeleVantage™ 5.0, with Calltrol's Object Telephony Server™ with Convergence Friendly™ Architecture provides an exceptional platform for service bureaus, collection and other financial call centers, service desks, help desks and remote technicians. This strategic relationship, formed under Artisoft's Open Communication Alliance, enables all three partners to promote the solution through their respective distribution channels. 

"Developing new, integrated products designed to increase productivity is vital to our clients," remarked Robert Garber, Executive Vice President of Digisoft. "In our Call Center Server solution we have created a solution virtually any call center can utilize."

The joint predictive dialing solution enables Artisoft customers to utilize their existing hardware and software components in their current TeleVantage systems. The Call Center Server solution transforms the PBX into a complete call center application, able to handle inbound, outbound predictive dialing or a blended environment. Clients are capable of systematically managing all phone interactions through a single console with a full suite of integrated functions.

"We are excited to have a single board solution with a market leader like Digisoft. Now, with the same hardware, customers can acquire a robust predictive dialing solution on their flexible, feature-rich TeleVantage phone system. It would be difficult to cost justify multiple boxes when Digisoft and Artisoft can solve most customer needs with a single server." noted Rob Black, Product Marketing Manager of Artisoft. 

The predictive dialing software, supplied by Calltrol, controls the outbound dialing and answer detection through TeleVantage. Calltrol uses twenty separate factors during each calling decision to accurately predict both the answer rate and agent availability for each call. The implementation, compliant with state and federal regulations, enables you to fine tune calling for each campaign.

"Calltrol's continuous improvement is derived from the input of our users and experience of our developers and illustrates our commitment to the developer community and our existing client base," said David Friedman, Vice President of Marketing & Sales for Calltrol Corp. "We continue to improve our product to ensure our customers, resellers and solution providers are always on the cutting edge. Additionally, providing products that help our clients stay FTC-compliant while still maximizing productivity is important in today's regulatory and economic environment".
