The California Academy of Sciences Selects the T3main as Their Voicemail Platform

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - January 4, 2008) - T3 Telecom Software, a leading provider of integrated telephony solutions, today announced that its T3main product has been selected by the California Academy of Sciences to replace its current voicemail platform. The Academy selected T3main because the product has the ability to meet their needs for a broad communications platform.

The Academy, currently running a Tadiran IPX 3000, was introduced to the T3main product by Affinitel Communications, a T3 Telecom Software authorized reseller. "We knew that the Academy would find great benefit in the T3main," stated Pankaj Amin, President of Affinitel. "They need a system they can grow into as they develop more comprehensive programs, and since T3main is built on Linux, it provides the increased robustness and security the Academy requires."

T3main includes feature-rich components that provide the building blocks for a fully customized and scalable unified communications solution including Unified Messaging, Speech Recognition, Speaker Verification (Viometrics), Broadcast Notification (T3iCall), Interactive Voice Response (IVR), Voice Transcription (T3vT), Automated Attendant, Fax, and Announcer functionality.

In addition to voicemail services, the Academy plans to use T3main in a variety of ways:

--  IVR and scripting capabilities will bring the Academy's "Guide by
    Cell" technology in-house to save on outsourcing costs. This interactive
    guidance system allows museum visitors to use their cell phone to access
    information about an exhibit.
--  Using T3iCall, the Academy plans to expand their outreach and
    marketing efforts to inform members of upcoming events and gauge attendance
    through the use of touchtone surveys.
--  Using IVR, the Academy plans to streamline and automate ticketing and
    admissions processes for special events.
--  Using T3 Viometrics, the Academy will add an additional layer of
    security to voicemail access, and plans to later use this functionality for
    physical access control in the museum

"The T3main has dovetailed extremely well with our mixed data network and PBX environment and its flexible scripting and intuitive GUI allows us to dramatically reduce administrative overhead. This secure, scalable solution is an integral part of our day-to-day business operations and public museum visitor experience," states Fabio Penny, Telecommunications Manager for the California Academy of Sciences. "T3iCall will allow us to cost-effectively manage communications to our visitors, members and fellow scientific institutions, while Unified Messaging and Fax support the Academy's environmental efforts by lessening our paper, equipment and overall energy consumption."

"We are excited to begin this partnership with the Academy and support their immediate needs as well as future goals," states Yaniv Livneh, CEO of T3 Telecom Software. "Our SIP compatibility, voice authentication feature and the capability to develop custom applications allows us to support the Academy's general technology strategy in addition to its telecom strategy."
