Repeating messages - messages can be scheduled to repeat at predefined interval, for a settable period of time


Group paging - messages can be sent to a predefined group of recipients


Multiple recipients - allows a single message to be sent to more than one recipient and/or  group


Pre-programmed messages - on each workstation, up to 100 pre-programmed messages can be defined


Real-time message status log - each workstation can track the progress of each message from start to finish


Real-time message status counters - displays current number of messages pending, sent, or failed from each workstation


Message character counter - displays the length of the current message


Message history log - displays a history of all messages sent from each workstation


Intelligent message queuing - messages for the same carrier are grouped together and sent during a single communications session


Point and click operation - an intuitive user interface makes the PageGate GUI Client very easy to use


Spell check - a spell check option is available on systems running MS Word


Recipient cueing - Recipients may be selected by typing the first few letters of their name


Multiple delivery options - PageGate can deliver messages to a paging terminal by a direct cable connection, through a modem, or via the internet


Message splitting - Long messages are intelligently split into multiple smaller messages


Settable character limits - The maximum number of characters to be sent in a message is settable by carrier and individual recipient


On-call groups - A schedule can be setup for the recipients in a group, allowing PageGate to send messages to only the recipients scheduled to receive messages a that point in time.


Dialup support - messages can be sent via modem or direct cable connection to any carrier that supports the IXO, PET, TAP, or UCP protocol.  This includes cellular/pcs/digital phones, PIMS, alphanumeric and numeric pagers, PC/PCMCIA cards, billboards, etc.


Internet support - messages can be sent via the internet to any carrier that supports the SNPP, SMTP (email), and WCTP protocols.  This includes cellular/pcs/digital phones, PIMS, alphanumeric and numeric pagers, PC/PCMCIA cards, billboards, etc.


Failover - PageGate can automatically send a message that was not deliverable to another recipient or group.


Touch-Tone message delivery - PageGate can send messages to numeric pagers by using touch tones


Message logging - PageGate's general log keeps a history of all messages sent.  Each dialer can also keep a detailed log of the communication sessions with the paging carriers.


Modular / Scalable - PageGate's modular architecture allows the application to be run across several computers for high throughput applications.


Reliapage - provides a way for recipients to be aware that a message has been missed.


Requeue messages - missed messages can be requeued for re-transmission to the paging carrier


High throughput & volume - PageGate's intelligent queuing of messages and multiple dialers (up to 16) allows for a large volume of messages to be delivered per hour.


Filtered Recipients - The PageGate Client can show a filtered list of recipients, which can be filtered by name or one of four other definable fields.


Local Recipient Lists - A subset of the entire network recipient list can be setup for each client, making it easier to find commonly used recipients.


Reports - Reports of pending and sent messages can be printed from the PageGate Client.
