NILES, ILLINOIS (April 8, 2013) – Talkaphone announces integration of the VOIP-500 series phone / WEBS Paging Module with Singlewire Software’s InformaCast Advanced Notification solution. With Talkaphone’s public release of the VOIP-500 firmware version, users of the InformaCast Advanced Notification can now send audio broadcasts to Talk A Phone’s VOIP-500 series phones and WEBS® paging devices over a network.

“We are extremely pleased to announce the integration with Singlewire”, said Samuel Shanes, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer for Talkaphone Co. “This is truly a significant step forward to building a comprehensive all-encompassing mass notification solution for our joint customer base.”

The newly released firmware allows users to activate the line-level output and to disable the speaker / microphone on Talkaphone’s VOIP-500 series phones by entering a user configurable DTMF code. The unit can also be programmed to have an auxiliary output trigger at the same time.

InformaCast Advanced Notification is a full-featured emergency notification solution that enables organizations to reach an unlimited number of phones with text, and live or pre-recorded audio messages. Notification can also be sent to IP speakers, existing analog overhead paging systems, computer desktops via a pop-up client or Cisco Jabber IM, IP-based digital signage, email, and social media sites including Facebook and Twitter. In addition, InformaCast Advanced Notification can also be used for automatically sending weather alerts, monitoring for 911/emergency numbers dialed within an organization, initiating an emergency conference call session with managers, and triggering notification to and from other networked systems.
