Hereís What You
level Universal Office includes a host of features that will help
professionals step into the world of big business telecommunications.
Here are just a few:
ďI have a
regular office, with regular office hours. But Iím out of the office,
visiting clients, as much as Iím at my desk. The Universal Office
keeps me in touch even when Iím out, without my clients having to know
several different numbers. They can call or fax me through just one
number, and I donít have to install expensive equipment thatís out of
date the day I put it in.
ďEven when Iím
out, their calls still come through to me because of the Follow-Me
feature. I can take the call, or ask them to leave a message. I can
even tell them WHY I canít take the call right then, and still have
them leave a message, without them having to call back.
control, through my phone or the Internet. Thatís what the Universal
Office gives me.Ē
Using it Ė
Bob is an
accountant who often works from home. He loves the freedom of being at
home with his family, but still needs to project a professional
image. With the Universal Office, he has Genie as his personal and
PROFESSIONAL assistant whenever his clients call.
"The last thing
I want when I work from home is to give out my home number to
EVERYONE. A client calling me at midnight isnít how I want to live.
The power of THE UNIVERSAL OFFICE solved that problem for me. I just
set up a schedule as to when calls are allowed to get through to me
during the day!"
Bob also loves
the fact that he doesn't have to have a separate voice mail system and
dedicated fax line to accept faxes. All voice mail and faxes are sent
to his UNIVERSAL OFFICE where Bob can then retrieve them from the
voice mail and faxes from the Internet is so helpful. I simply go to
Genie online and click to hear messages, or view faxes. Managing my
faxes is a snap. I can print them, store them, forward them, or delete
them when needed. All from the internet!" says Bob.
The ability to
screen and handle multiple calls at the same time is just another way
that the Universal Office helps Bob work from home:
"When my phone
rings, I pick it up and hear who the caller is, BEFORE I decide to
take the call. At the same time, someone else might be calling my
Universal Office to request one of my fax-on-demand document, like my
brief on the new tax requirements.
another client needs to fax me their quarterly sales summary, and that
call also goes to my Universal Office. Genie handles it all while Iím
talking to that first client, and pages to tell me that the new fax
and voicemail message have arrived.
ďEven while Iím
still talking to that first caller, I can swing over to my PC, connect
to the Genie Online site and read that fax. And the instant Iím off
that first call, I can listen to the voice message.
ďGenie is my
electronic secretary handling all my phone calls for me." says Bob,
ďeven if Iím visiting a clientís office (or taking that much needed
vacation after tax time). The Universal Office is open and ready even
when Iím not. And if itís vitally important, I can still get those
messages and faxes anywhere I can find an Internet connection or a
phone and a fax. Hotel lobby or client office makes no difference.
Genie and the Universal Office can handle it.Ē

Ever wonder why
hotels charge as much as $1.50 per call and as much as $1.00 a minute

to get your messages to you. The Universal Office can deliver them to
any place, anytime according to your instructions.
Keep It Clear and Simple
Office is fast and simple to use. You receive Faxes with digital
quality so they will always be clear and easy to read. Your messages

phones, and personal organizers. Instead of dragging around cumbersome
communications equipment, have all your messages sent to one location
where you can view and respond to them. Your contacts can reach you
through one number, first time and every time, instead of chasing you
Get Instant Notification
Office will provide notification to your pager, cell phone or e-mail
account to alert you that new messages have arrived and are waiting
for your attention. Donít waste time logging on to find that no
messages are waiting, and no more time and expense spent calling back
to the office to see if perhaps there are messages waiting there.
Genie can notify you for all message types. Even when you are on
the move you can still keep in touch. Youíll know instantly when the
message arrived and the callerís number (if available) so you can then
decide the urgency of your response.
Donít want to carry
a pager? NO problem. Your Universal Office has a unique feature called
TelePaging. When your callers telephone they will be able to page you
just as if you had a pager, but your notification will be sent to your
cell phone or any of three telephone numbers you choose. If you are
out of touch, itís still NO problem. Genie will record the name and
telephone number of whoever is paging you, so you can return their
call with the push of a button.
