Over the past thirty years or so, voice mail messaging has gone the way of all great technologies; from a state-of-the-art, cutting edge tech to which only the big boys had access to an everyday feature in the most common telephone systems used in businesses of all sizes and even in people's personal lives. But even today, the advanced features of voice mail messaging continue to evolve, as every passing year brings advances in technology and makes it easier to use business voicemail systems effectively. The modern voice mail messaging systems offered by TRI-STAR Telecommunications have revolutionized how we talk to one another.
Some of the leading voicemail messaging systems TRISTAR Telecommunications stocks include the Avaya Intuity Audix system; The Octel 200/300 platforms; the Octel VMX voice and fax messaging system.
One of the most significant leaps forward in voice mail messaging happened when messages moved off of traditional tape-based recordings and into voicemail greeting in digital format. Calling a telephone number to leave a message on an answering machine quickly became a thing of the past in the corporate world.
That quantum leap forward opened the door for most of what we consider to be the best features of modern voice mail messaging systems, from sending the same message out to reach dozens or even hundreds of recipients to attaching a voice mail message to an email and sending it via the Internet.
That, of course, has become critical to the modern office environment. With every executive and most middle management armed with a smartphone, blackberry, or tablet of some sort, the ability to forward a voicemail via the new media like the web back to anyone's phone anywhere in the world is an incredibly useful tool. Voicemail messages can be easily checked from anywhere, shared, forwarded, or stored on a hard drive or server for future indexing and/or retrieval. Mp3 file format even insures that storing thousands of messages isn't a huge drain on storage resources.
What's more, an Mp3 file can even be digitally transcribed by voice recognition software, so a vm left by a coworker can appear in text format, to be read in places where listening to a message in a theater, for example isn't a great option. As the professional class becomes more and more mobile and demands follow you at all hours, this ability becomes more and more critical.
Similarly, with voice recognition, voice mail messages can be indexed according to keywords, making personal organization easier and locating important information quickly simple rather than a massive chore.
There was a time in which the concept of multitasking was frowned upon in business, but that's no longer the case with modern professionals and our ever more demanding business landscape. Fortunately, as the demands of today's business operations have increased, our technological capabilities have improved apace, and voice mail messaging systems are no exception.
The evolution of voice mail messaging is still happening around us every day, with new technologies like Unified Communications and Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications.
