Summary
  • Voice-mail systems are typically sold to small-to-medium size businesses to save staff salaries, minimize telephone tag, improve customer service, and inform customers about services and products. Voice-mail system sales are expected to grow from $180 million in 1985 to $645 million in 1989. Natural Microsystems' Watson $498 package is one of the low-cost voice mail systems available. The package includes: a Watson board to add to the personal computer; a built-in 1200 bit-per-second modem; PC-Talk III communications software; 500-record electronic card file; an on-line appointment calendar and alarm, and a call-logging feature. A $298 almost mandatory VIS option allows programming to make outgoing calls. Drawbacks to voice-mail include: voice-mail slows down when using the microcomputer for other applications; voice-mail systems are difficult to use on a LAN; voice-mail systems with more than one phone port may be expensive; voice digitization takes up a sizeable amount of hard disk space, and Watson's abilities can be abused causing some states to consider bills to outlaw computer-based telemarketing.
