Caller Directed Voicemail
Six Sigma Ltd. is now licensing the mark DirectVM.
DirectVM is a trade and service mark for a system or service from a licensed source that permits a caller to place a standard call or direct a voicemail to a called party.
SixSigma Ltd. Has owned DirectVM since 2000.
Prior to DirectVM technology, a caller dialed the called party and would only have the opportunity to leave a voicemail if the called party did not pickup. There are numerous occasions when it would be more convenient to the calling party if it had the option to either place a stand call OR select to record and send a directed voicemail. That capability has only been available if the called party had two lines-one for standard calls and another dedicated to voicemail only messages.
DirectVM technology permits the calling party to select whether to place a standard call OR to record and send a directed voicemail to a called party. And this is accomplished with the called party having a single calling number-no requirement for a separate, dedicated voicemail line.
