PhoneTag Service Now Available on Google's GrandCentral
May 13, 2008 (10:05 AM EDT)

NEW YORK and SAN FRANCISCO, May 13 /PRNewswire/ -- PhoneTag, the leader in voicemail-to-text services and visual voicemail applications, announced today that its award winning voicemail-to-text service is now available to Google GrandCentral users through its website . This first-of-its-kind integration enables GrandCentral users to stop listening to voicemail and start saving time and money by reading it.

Prior to this integration, consumers who wanted to experience unified communication had to choose between PhoneTag, which automatically transcribes and delivers voice messages as text and Google's GrandCentral service, which rings all phones at once. GrandCentral does not offer voicemail-to-text to its user base, nor does it deliver a .wav file of the original voice message. Now consumers can have all their numbers ring at the same time and, if the call goes unanswered, be able to read their voicemail through PhoneTag.

"PhoneTag's integration with GrandCentral gives our users more flexibility in how they want to experience our voicemail-to-text service," said James Siminoff, Founder and CEO of PhoneTag. "Customers no longer need to decide between using PhoneTag or GrandCentral, now they can seamlessly experience both services."

PhoneTag's service works with over 95 percent of U.S. and Canadian carriers, as well as office phone systems, enabling users to read voicemail instead of having to dial in and listen to it. PhoneTag, under its former name, SimulScribe, was recently rated as having the highest transcription quality by Information Week. Since launching its commercial service in January 2007, PhoneTag has received numerous awards including two coveted Four Star Ratings from PC Magazine and Laptop Magazine's Editor's Choice Award.
