Integrated with calendar, presence and contacts, iotum’s Relevance Engine uses user preferences and context to determine the importance of each call and then intelligently routes the call to the proper place.

"Our customers want advanced applications from phone systems. iotum’s Relevance Engine provides the first quantum leap in feature enhancements beyond the already available set that most IP-PBX solutions offer today," said Jeff Kirchner, CEO/President of Epygi. "With the Relevance Engine active, the right call gets to the right person, at the right time."
