GrandCentral launches beta program

[Grand Central offers one number -- assigned to a person not a device-- for central management of all your communication devices using a simple, Web-based interface.]

San Diego, DEMOfall 2006 -- GrandCentral Communications, Inc., a next-generation personal communications company, today launched the beta program of its flagship GrandCentral product at DEMOfall '06. GrandCentral provides people with One Number ... for Life(TM) -- a telephone number that is not tied to a particular phone or location -- but to a person. It is a unified communications service for consumers that integrates all existing phones, numbers, and voicemail boxes into one and gives subscribers unprecedented control over how incoming calls are managed through a simple, Web-based interface.

"There is a clear need for GrandCentral," stated DEMO Executive Producer Chris Shipley. "I manage a half-dozen phone numbers between my home, work, cell phone, pager and others. It's a chore to keep up with everything when you never know who's calling which number. GrandCentral's 'one number for life' is a much needed solution to a problem that gets more complicated as we connect with more people across various communication mediums. I'm delighted to introduce GrandCentral at DEMOfall!"

GrandCentral enables consumers to easily manage and personalize all of their voice communications. Consumers can now control where and how people reach them, save and organize their messages, and customize greetings and ring-back tones for different callers. GrandCentral users can also ListenIn(TM) on callers before taking calls, record their calls at the touch of a button and seamlessly switch calls between all of their phones. From now on, users will never miss a call they want to take, or take a call they want to miss. The service works with all existing phones and service providers.

"Voice communications has gotten out of control. People are either juggling too many phone numbers and voicemail boxes, or they are becoming overly reliant on their cell phones and getting interrupted too often with unimportant calls. There needs to be a service that makes sense of this mess and gives the user the power to control how they are reached, where they are reached and by whom," said Craig Walker, CEO of GrandCentral Communications. "In a perfect world, we would have only one number at which we could be reached, could answer a call at any phone we wanted, and could know whether a call was important before taking it. The GrandCentral solution does just this."
