My first thought would be "Don't do it". I remember the Voysys would work on a Merlin--but even back in the '90s--it just wasn't worth the time and effort. MW lites on the phones might be an issue, too.

Depending on the size of the system, I would think that a used Partner ACS with a VM card would be a better deal for the customer and for you.

And with Voysys, you have that whole issue with having to lie about any year past 2000 or the day/date will be incorrect.

I'm quite sure a DuVoice would integrate with a Merlin, but Mick is right. He should either get telco voicemail or do a forklift upgrade to a system that was designed with voicemail from the beginning.

Just one more voice saying that, if system is pre-Legend, don't do it.

If the customer wants to keep his Classic Merlin phones, an upgrade to the final release of the Merlin Legend might be worth exploring.
