Ascendis Caller ID Multiuser Overview

Ascendis Caller ID Multiuser (ACIDMU) monitors, tracks, and optionally blocks telephone calls. If desired, users can be notified of calls by popup windows, text-to-speech, email, or custom user actions.

ACIDMU works with your telephone company's caller ID service and your caller-id-capable dial-up modems or Whozz Calling? devices to monitor incoming (and outgoing, with some Whozz Calling? devices) calls. Calls are automatically logged.

Common, favorite, and/or undesirable callers can be added as contacts to associate their name with their phone number, and to customize behavior.

ACIDMU consists of four pieces:

The pieces can all run on one computer, although it's probably more common to have the servers on one or two computers, the clients on all user computers, and the console on the administrator's computer.

The clients access the database server over the network. The database server contains all data (calls, contacts, actions, locations) and most settings. Installations with many calls and/or clients will require more powerful database servers. When first started, the client and console programs will prompt for database connection information if the database server is not running on the same computer.

The ability to share calls and data over a network makes Ascendis Caller ID Multiuser ideal for a small or home office. You can monitor calls from multiple computers, or multiple people can monitor calls at the same time. Notes can be added and shared for any call, or per contact.

ACIDMU can be used free for 30 days. ACIDMU is licensed per phone line, so after the trial purchase an appropriate license for the number of phone lines being monitored. You can run each server on one computer, and the clients (and console) on as many computers as you like.

Ascendis Caller ID Multiuser includes user guides for each program (Database Server, Server, Console, and Client) and a Setup Guide. Download ACIDMU free to read the user guides or use it at no cost for 30 days.
