Corporate history[edit]

In 1994, Callware Technologies was incorporated as a result of a spin-off from International Voice Exchange, a service bureau and software development company founded in 1988.

At that time, Callware introduced its unified messaging and unified communications product — Callegra. Callegra became the first voicemail product in the market to give Users the ability to access, send, and receive voicemail and fax messages directly from a computer desktop interface. Subsequent versions integrated Callegra’s GUI with Novell GroupWise, Microsoft Outlook, Lotus Notes, and various web browsers.[18][19][20]

In 1998, Callware started providing Callegra to government agencies and the US Department of Defense (DoD).

In 2002, Callware introduced its flagship product Callegra.UC. Callegra.UC added a .NET Web Service, allowing custom client applications to be developed for the Callegra.UC unified messaging and communication product. This new feature opened PBX functions and voicemail services through programming of SOAP and .NET.[21]

In 2004, Callware enhanced its flagship product and released the Department of Defense (DoD) edition Callegra.UC JITC, which added enhanced high security features.[22] Callegra.UC JITC became the first product of its kind to obtain Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC) Certification and Information Assurance (IA) Accreditation in October 2004, and is the only product of its kind to be listed on the DoD Approved Products List (APL).[23][24]

In 2010, Callware Technologies’ products have been installed at over 8500 sites for customers such as government bureaus, educational institutions, international banks, and Fortune 500 corporations, including more than 100 DoD sites and military bases worldwide.[25]

The headquarters for Callware Technologies is located in Salt Lake City, Utah.
