IVM Answering Machine Software

Phone answering software for Windows PCs

IVM is a telephone answering machine program. Install IVM on any PC to use as a state-of-the-art answering machine. The answering software connects to your phone line using a voice modem, professional telephony board or directly to a VoIP service.

This software is also an effective phone management solution for small to medium businesses. For example, IVM can redirect in-coming calls. All calls are logged with date, time and caller ID. Recorded messages can be played at any time, forwarded to an email address, accessed via the internet or saved for future reference.

If you just want to use IVM very simply as a computer answering machine just run the install file on your PC and it will be ready to answer calls. But, when you are ready, you can explore the advanced key response and programming options to create a sophisticated telephone interactive response system. You will find many exciting ways to use IVM to provide information, serve your customers and save time.

Example Setup IVR Files
A number of example IVR files are included with IVM which can be useful as a starting point when creating your own system. They will give you an example of a basic setup for the particular task. You will still need to take the time to read IVM's manual to be able to modify the IVR Program for your specific requirements.

IVM supports "plugins" which can be used within your interactive voice response system. We make free plugins available for a number of applications including loading and saving from databases, automatic emailing or faxing of documents, linking to an http server, connecting to hardware and much more.
