Soliant Consulting announces 24U Phone Companion Implementation Partnership

Phone Companion offers cross-platform telephony integration for FileMaker Pro

San Mateo, California — July 23, 2009. Soliant Consulting announces its exclusive U.S. implementation partnership for the new 24U Phone Companion, the only cross-platform telephony integration for FileMaker Pro. Developed by 24U Software, the 24U Phone Companion is a product which connects your phone system to your FileMaker database.

The 24U Phone Companion allows FileMaker Pro to interact directly with supported PBX telephone switches, which allows you to:

  • Make or receive calls without directly using your phone
  • Find a caller's contact information instantly
  • Automatically bring up a client's current project / ticket information as they call
  • Log incoming, outgoing and missed call information

The minimum requirements for the 24U Phone Companion are:

Mac OS X:

  • PowerPC G3 Macintosh
  • Mac OS X 10.4
  • FileMaker Pro 8


  • 300 MHz Pentium PC
  • Microsoft Windows 2000
  • FileMaker Pro 8

Although the 24U Phone Companion can work with FileMaker Pro 8 and 9, it is recommended that FileMaker Pro 10 be used.

Though the plug-in is completely cross platform, some telephone switches may require the middleware to be installed on a Windows PC. A detailed list of supported PBX models and operating systems is listed in the documentation accompanying the plug-in. Support for other brands and models may be possible to add on demand. Please contact Soliant Consulting to check Phone Companion's compatibility with a specific telephone switch.

Availability and Pricing

Licenses for the 24U Phone Companion start at just $79 per user and $945 per PBX Switch. For more details please visit
