Founder Bill Curtin II and Amtelco have received more than thirty U.S. Patents for telephony software, data handling methodologies, and telephone switching devices. Millions of telephone calls are processed every day by Amtelco systems and software in operation in all 50 of the United States and more than 20 foreign countries.
Amtelco was founded in 1976 in the wake of the 1968 Federal Communications Commission ruling in the Carterphone case, which struck down existing tariffs prohibiting connection to the public telephone network of equipment not supplied by telephone operating companies. The FCC ruling eventually led to the break-up of the AT&T monopoly in the telecommunications industries.
Amtelco quickly became a trusted name in those industries after the release of its TAS Video system, the first computerized telephone switching system in the marketplace. The TAS (Telephone Answering Service) Video system soon was succeeded by the EVE system. By the late 1980s, Amtelco's EVE (Electronic Video Exchange) system grew to become the most widely used business telephone answering equipment in the industry.
