British Telecom Wholesale has contracted Unisys to extend its voice messaging platform. The relationship, first establish in 1999, is renewed with the announcement of contracts worth approximately GBP 1.6 million.

The new converged fixed and mobile voicemail service will enable BT mobile and fixed line callers to leave a voice message across a choice of phones - landline and associated mobiles - as well as the ability to access voicemail from either type of device.

This service will also utilise comprehensive speech recognition for the first time and will also incorporate features such as Call Return.

The new messaging platform for BT's corporate customers will enable BT to offer the specific voicemail services required by business users. The service will be an integrated element of BT's Voice and Multi Media Platform that provides converged voice and data services for major corporate clients.
