ADTRAN NetVanta UC Notification Server

Overview:

Notifications can be triggered manually, or configured to run automatically based on a preset schedule or event. The Notification Server is capable of determining whether a call is answered by a live person, an automated answering device or fax machine, and follow a pre-configured action or rule (leave a specific message, send a fax, transfer call). Once a call is answered by a live person, the notification specific information is played, and the person can be provided options to confirm receipt, cancel appointments, or transfer to a live person.

NetVanta UC Notification Server can integrate with many different types of business process applications (Practice Management Systems, Electronic Medical/Health Record Systems, CRM Systems), as well as ODBC compliant Databases (SQL Server, Access, MySQL, XLS files, and others) or CSV text files.
