Voice Technologies Group Inc. of Amherst will begin customer tests of a new software package that combines voice mail with e-mail and fax messages for Lotus Notes users.
PremisMail 7.5, due for general release in December, will be the first version of the product that integrates voice and text messaging, the company said.
"One of the big features is, when you're on the road, you can call in and listen to e-mail and fax as well as voice mail," said Kathryn E. Apenowich, marketing services manager. PremisMail also has a "find-me" feature that allows mobile users to receive voice messages and fax messages at a single phone number.
Pricing for the new version isn't determined, Ms. Apenowich said. The predecessor version costs $6,000 to $42,000, depending on system size.
