TeleTools makes creating or adding telephony to applications easy!  TeleTools works through Microsoft's Telephony API (TAPI) to provide hardware independence (the ability to work with telephony devices from many manufacturers).

The benefits of TAPI are well-known, but if you have ever tried to write an application using the TAPI routines directly, or even gone through the Microsoft SDK, you can see how complex and difficult it can be.  TeleTools simplifies TAPI and makes your project a snap.

  • Add flexible and scalable computer telephony functionality to your application fast

  • Get expert help from ExceleTel - The TAPI Experts

TeleTools is a collection of ActiveX and VCL controls you call from your telephony application so it works with most Windows software development environments. These controls release you from the drudgery of writing low-level code. Soon you will discover a new freedom to unleash your true creativity. Imagine - adding Caller ID simply by dropping in one control and dashing off two very minimal subroutines. TeleTools makes it that easy.
