Integration (CTI)

FacetPhone supports various types of Computer Telephony Integration (CTI).  From the simplest interface to dial or

retrieve caller ID, to a rich integration protocol, FacetPhone has it covered.



FacetPhone supports the standard Microsoft TAPI interface.  Any application that uses this interface can dial on FacetPhone system.      Examples of TAPI enabled applications are Microsoft Outlook, Act! and MS Dialer.


UTAPI (Universal TAPI).

UTAPI consists of simple programs that can be run by an application to dial or retrieve caller ID.  This package is available for Linux/UNIX, Mac, and Windows.  Any application that can run another program, can be modified to use UTAPI.



NetTAPI is a protocol that can provide in-depth information from the phone system for applications that are modified to use it.  Any application that can make a TCP connection to another program can be modified to use NetTAPI.  Examples include Infor FACTS and Open Systems Accounting Software.


FacetPhone Web CTI Interface.

Programs can issue a URL to dial a number, get caller ID of an incoming call or hangup the call.

Plug-ins and Code Hooks.

Some applications provide an easy way to include code in a "hook" or "plug-in" that can be used to provide integration with the FacetPhone system.  This code then uses UTAPI or the FacetPhone Web CTI Interface.  Examples include Filemaker and Daylite.
