24U Software and Linear Blue partner to provide telephony for FileMaker® Pro in the UK

Berkshire, UK -- 7 July 2009

Linear Blue becomes the exclusive UK implementation partner for the new 24U Phone Companion. Developed by 24U Software, the 24U Phone Companion is a product which connects your phone system* to your FileMaker database to give you a full phone and database combined solution.

The 24U Phone Companion allows FileMaker Pro to interact directly with supported PBX telephone switches, opening up a number of new features including:

  • The ability to make or receive calls without directly using your phone
  • Find a callers contact information instantly
  • Automatically bring up a clients current project / ticket information as they call
  • Log incoming, outgoing and missed call information

The minimum requirements for the 24U Phone Companion are:

  • PowerPC G3 Macintosh with Mac OS X 10.4 and FileMaker Pro 8
  • or 300 MHz Pentium PC with Microsoft Windows 2000 and FileMaker Pro 8

Although the 24U Phone Companion can work with FileMaker Pro 8 and 9, it is recommended that FileMaker Pro 10 be used.

Whilst the plug-in is completely cross platform, some telephone switches may require the middleware to be installed on a Windows PC. A detailed list of supported PBX models and operating systems is listed in the documentation accompanying the plug-in. Support for other brands and models may be possible to add on demand. Please contact Linear Blue to check Phone Companion's compatibility with a specific telephone switch.

Availability and Pricing

Licences for the 24U Phone Companion start at just £49 per user and £580 per PBX Switch.

24U Phone Companion takes your existing FileMaker database and allows you to use the next level of functionality.
