Voicemail, Visual Voicemail, Faxmail & Unified Communications

In the early days...

A lady, well call her Mabel, answered calls from a switchboard and patched them to their intended party. If the called party was not available, a message was left with a friend or family member that someone was looking to speak to them. In some cases, a telegram was dispatched to the intended party. In the mid-1980s, voicemails became computerized around most of the world. Since then, Mabel has lost her position of most popular member of the Saturday Morning Tea Social Club.

It took twenty years of innovation for voicemail to evolve into an application that can truly assist both callers and message recipients. Today, advanced voicemail systems are called Unified Communications systems (UC). These UC systems not only collect voice messages, but emails and faxes as well.

Business owners have been able to increase employee productivity with UC systems because it has helped to reduce the time and management needed with checking messages from multiple sources. This new UC technology also incorporates the ability to track you down like a bloodhound. When it does find its target (you), there are any number of options that include having messages sent to a cell phone, an alternate PC or even read aloud to you. The UC systems of today can be setup to compliment your work style schedule for each day, week, month or year.

Since 1979, General Communications has been providing expert communication solutions to thousands of businesses in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, throughout the United States and internationally. We are here to help you with your voicemail, email, faxmail (unified messaging needs) today.
