CT Messenger™ 2.2 (Mint Components
Inc.) is a component software solution designed to help
developers to easily add over-the-phone notification,
paging, and SMS functionality to their applications. CT
Messenger Developer's Toolkit provides a set of scriptable
COM objects (TAPI ActiveX) for sending voice messages to a Verizon, AT&T, or T-Mobile cell phone
over any TAPI compliant hardware including a
voice modem or
telephony card. The same objects are used to send text
messages to a pager or SMS-enabled cell phone. TAPI ActiveX
objects from CT messenger can be used in
Visual Basic (VB)
or Visual C++ (VC).
All you have to do is create a call
tree with message consisting of some text or the names of
pre-recorded voice files (or both), one or more numbers to
call, call time interval, etc., and submit it for processing
to CT Messenger Server. The call will be scheduled and
processed with a detailed report generated automatically. A
report will bring information on the time and duration of
the call, the type of answer detected, and the keys pressed
by the recipient of the call.
No more expensive and bulky hardware – CT Messenger 2.0
provides a set of scriptable COM
objects that enable a Windows or Web application to bring
important information to its users in the form of text
pages, phone calls or SMS messages via any TAPI compliant
hardware including a voice modem or telephony card. Unlike
other programs of this type, CT Messenger uses software DSP
algorithms for detecting the type of response (busy, no
answer, voice answer). CT Messenger software does not rely
on the answer detection capabilities of the underlying
hardware, and it works with inexpensive voice modems.

Designed for flexible deployment, CT Messenger software
uses the client-server philosophy. The server part is called
CT Messenger Server, and the client part – CT Messenger
Developer's Toolkit. An application uses easy-to-handle CT
Messenger Developer's Toolkit objects to create call or page
requests (that contain call time limits, phone list, call
tree, etc.), submit the requests for execution, and retrieve
reports on requests executed, canceled, or failed.
to reduce the network traffic, CT Messenger software
provides a mechanism for storing pre-recorded voice files on
CT Messenger Server. CT Messenger Server is typically
installed on a computer intended for scheduling and making
calls and/or sending pages, as well as generating call and
page related reports.
No tricky DCOM-like
configuration is necessary as communication between Client
Side Application and CT Messenger Server is provided at the
file level. Both CT Messenger Server and CT Messenger
Developer's Toolkit can be installed on the same computer.
